Water Recreation

Candle Lake Provincial Park features wonderful recreation opportunities, including swimming, fishing and boating.

Candle Lake has three swimming areas. The Sandy Bay Beach is located in the Sandy Bay campground and is close to a service centre. The Waskateena Beach, located on the south end of the lake and is known for beautiful sand and shallow water and is a great place to take small children. Minowukaw Beach, in the Minowukaw campground, offers a long, sand beach and is adjacent to sand dunes.

For fishing, Candle Lake is well-known for walleye and northern pike. In addition, there is Musker Pond, a stocked trout pond, in a sheltered location with hard-pack walkways and specially constructed piers to make it wheelchair accessible. Shore fishing can be enjoyed along Fisher Creek, the creek that connects Candle and Torch Lakes.

There are two boat launches, one in the Sandy Bay Campground and another at Minowukaw beach.
