Makwa Lake Provincial Park

What to do while you are here

Water Recreation

There is a chain of six sand-bottom lakes of varying sizes in or adjacent to Makwa Lake Provincial Park. Each lake offers an excellent beach and swimming opportunities.

Fishing is an excellent year-round activity at Makwa Lake Provincial Park. Anglers have the opportunity to catch northern pike, walleye, yellow perch, rainbow trout and tiger trout. 

The lakes can be accessed by several boat launches available on the various water bodies. There are three boat launches located at the Stabler Point campground, the park entry, the south tip of Makwa Lake and at Steele Narrows Provincial Park.


An excellent way to observe the wildlife and bird species is by walking along one of the park's nature trails. There are five trails in the park, varying in length from 0.8 km to 2.4 km. 

The Mewasin Nature Trail is the most popular trail in Makwa Lake Provincial Park, and it guides users through a variety of forest habitats.

During the winter months, the hiking trails are groomed as cross-country ski trails. Skiers typically start from the Poplar Trail trailhead. More information and maps are available at the park office.
