Greenwater Lake Provincial Park

What to do while you are here

Greenwater Lake Provincial Park is one of Saskatchewan's premiere four-season destinations.

Water Recreation

Greenwater Lake is the place to be for water lovers.

The swimming area is just off of the large main beach. Next to the beach is a large lawn, picnic area and service centre. There is a playground located between the beach and the marina.

There are three main areas to fish at Greenwater Lake.

Both Greenwater Lake and Marean Lake provide excellent opportunities to angle for northern pike, walleye and perch.

Steiestol Lake is stocked with rainbow trout, and due to the lake's winter aeration, catching up to 10 lb rainbow trout is common. This is a hike in lake and motorized boats are not permitted on the water. 

A boat launch is available on Greenwater Lake, next to the marina. There is a filleting station located in the parking lot so that anglers can clean their catches.


From self-guided interpretive trails to challenging hiking and cross-country ski trails, Greenwater Lake has exactly what you're looking for.

Highbush Interpretive Trail

This self-guided trail features viewing points and rest stops with benches along the way. Interpretive signage provides information on the park's flora and fauna.

Marean Lake Birding Interpretive Trail

This trail features information on the more than 200 species of birds that can be found in the park. There are rest stops and viewing points along the trail, including a two-level viewing tower that provides a beautiful view of Marean Lake.

Hiking Trails

There are more than 125 km of cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails in the park. In the summer, these double as hiking trails. These trails will guide hikers into the back country of the park, where you may spot moose, elk, deer and other wildlife.

Toboggan Hill
A toboggan hill, complete with a warm-up shelter and firewood, is located just past the golf course. The toboggan hill is fun for kids of all ages. Snowmobiles are not permitted on the toboggan hill.

Other Amenities
