Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park

Activities and Amenities

Located on the southern shore of Lake Diefenbaker, Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park is a recreational haven.

Water Recreation

The expansive waters of Lake Diefenbaker are perfect for a variety of water activities.

The main beach and swimming area, on the west side of the park, is the perfect place for a summer dip. There is a nearby grassy area with a picnic area and large cottonwood trees for shade.

A boat launch is available near to the main beach, and the lake is perfect for boating, windsurfing, water-skiing, fishing and more.

Lake Diefenbaker is the most popular fishing lake in Saskatchewan and has some of the highest concentrations of game fish in the province. The lake is home to a variety of species, including walleye, rainbow trout, northern pike, sauger, Atlantic salmon, burbot, lake trout, yellow perch, lake whitefish and goldeye.

Trails

Saskatchewan Landing has beautiful hiking trails that take you through the native prairie, one of the rarest ecosystems in Canada.

Ridges and Ravines Interpretive Trail

Ravine hollows and rib-like ridges scar the sides of the South Saskatchewan River Valley. Ravines provide shelter in this land of open spaces, and ridges provide expansive views of the valley. Along this trail, you will discover minute, millions of years old fossils, plants that eat dust and rocks that were carried here on a bed of ice. This trail is 1.2 km in length.

Rings, Ruts and Remnants Interpretive Trail

This 2.5 km trail will lead you to explore Saskatchewan Landing's history: how the environment shaped the lives of those who came here and how those who came here attempted to change the land. Teepee rings, rock cairns, remnants of homesteads, cart ruts, graves and survey markers are all located along this fascinating trail.

Prairie Vista Interpretive Trail

Explore the Brunyee Coulee that harbours cattails, common yellow throats, trees and tiger salamanders from the valley bottom to the very top edge. Pass by the prairie forest on your way to the lookout point, which offers a panoramic view of the coulee and the South Saskatchewan river valley.
