Lac La Ronge Provincial Park

What to do while you are here

One of the most visually stunning parks in the province, Lac La Ronge is a destination like no other.

Water Recreation

Lac La Ronge, Saskatchewan's fourth largest lake, is dotted with more than 1300 islands and is a true northern getaway. 

A beach and swimming area is available at Wadin Bay. There are two beaches, playground equipment and a large grassy area for picnics.

Lac La Ronge Provincial Park is known for its excellent fishing. Walleye, sauger, northern pike, lake trout, whitefish and burbot can all be found in the lakes, streams and rivers.

Boat launches are located at all access points. Paddling is an extremely popular activity in Lac La Ronge, and many canoe and kayak routes flow through the park.


Nut Point Trail

This 15 km, one-way trail runs the length of a long peninsula extending into Lac La Ronge. This trail, starting from the Nut Point campground, passes through rock outcrops, forests and muskeg. There are primitive camping areas along the trail for those who would like to make an overnight trip.

Nemeiben Lake Interpretive Trail

This trail is currently closed. It was affected by the 2015 wildfires and is being redeveloped.

Devil Lake Trail

This 2.5 km hike connects the upstream (west) end of the Otter Rapids portage to the Devil Lake campground. The trail begins at the Devil Lake campground boat launch area. It features breathtaking views - make sure to bring your camera.

Cross-Country Ski Trails

Lac La Ronge Provincial Park offers 62 km of groomed classic and freestyle trails, including 5 km of lit trails for night skiing. 

In the summer, the ski trails double as mountain bike trails.

Other Amenities
