Battlefords Provincial Park
What to do while you are here
Jackfish Lake is excellent for water recreation, including swimming, fishing and boating.
Soak up the sun on the beach, or enjoy the large grassy area nearby. The park features a large area for swimming, and anglers will delight in the variety of pike, walleye and whitefish. A commerical net fishery for whitefish takes place each winter.
Boat launches are available and Jackfish Lake is exceptional for all kinds of watersports.
The Battlefords Provincial Park has both hiking and mountain biking trails.
Cacti and Cranberries Interpretive Trail
This self-guided nature trail, located near Robinson Bay, takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. There is a great view of Jackfish Lake from on top of a large hill on the trail.
This 1.5 km trail follows the edge of the golf course, connecting up at the west edge of the south campground, capturing a scenic view of Jackfish Lake.
Mountain Bike Trail
This 4 km, challenging grass trail features rest areas along the way.
The main beach offers beach volleyball courts and horseshoe pits. There is no cost to use these, and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Also available is the Picnic Pavillion, a three-winged shelter with a large barbecue, water tap and power outlets. There is no charge to use the pavillion but it needs to be reserved in advance at the park administration office.
A recreation hall is available for rent through the park, and is the perfect place to host your next gathering. The hall has tables and chairs for up to 70 people, picnic tables and a patio outside, a refrigerator, stove, sink, large barbecue and washrooms.
