Cypress Hills Destination Area
Immerse yourself in amazing scenery and a variety of activities that the entire family can enjoy year-round in the Cypress Hills Destination Area.
The rugged beauty of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park is perfect for camping, hiking or trying out fly-fishing. Enjoy star-gazing? It’s also home to one of the largest Dark-Sky Preserves in North America.
Feeling adventurous? Play in the trees and go ziplining through the lodgepole pine forest with Cypress Hills Eco-Adventures. “Cowboy-up” at Historic Reesor Ranch and try your hand at ranch living. Discover the prehistoric ages and meet Scotty, Canada's most complete Tyrannosaurus rex, at the T.rex Discovery Centre. Follow in the footsteps of the Northwest Mounted Police and experience life in the 1880’s at Fort Walsh National Historic Site.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to nearby Maple Creek for delicious dining experiences. From The Star Café & Grill to the Rockin’ Horse Cookhouse & Bar and Redmond House, each is sure to please your taste-buds! Also, new to the southwest is Harvest Eatery. It's a new relaxed gourmet dining establishment set to open in Shaunavon this summer. While in the area, you should taste the wine made from locally grown grapes at the Cypress Hills Vineyard and Winery.
