Lovering Lake Cottage Information

Lovering Lake is a very picturesque lake in south central Saskatchewan with cottages lining the south side and a public beach and boat launch adjacent to them. It is a popular lake for fishing as well as boating. It is small and sheltered, making it ideal for canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.

It boasts wonderful sunsets.

It is also a favourite for snorkelling and scuba diving. Each fall the local dive club hosts a year-end cleanup dive followed by their annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving contest.

Letter from the Park Manager

Hi everyone, spring has sprung in what seems like less than a week, and we welcome it. We will continue the successful electronic mail-out this year and again issue Park Entry Permits at the Buffalo Pound Park Office, as we did last year.

Garbage Pickup

Garbage was picked up in early March, so I hope we will be good heading into the May long weekend. We will arrange for another pick up immediately following the long weekend, or at least monitor. We are planning to have the boat dock installed by the opening of the angling season, or certainly by the weekend following, provided all ice is off the lake.

Septic Tank Integrity Testing

We will continue assessing septic tanks and conducting integrity tests on everyone's septic tank this year; we managed to get a number of them done last fall. I very much hope there will be an opportunity to meet out at the lake this summer, I think it is long overdue, and with new cabin owners arriving over the past couple of years, it would be great timing.

Outstanding Real Property Reports

There may still some outstanding Real Property Reports as a result of being legally surveyed in 2020; please contact Midwest Surveys 306 525-8703 to make arrangements to obtain. Once you have received your RPR please ensure a copy is forwarded to me to have on file. The review of these RPRs is becoming most significant when it comes to changes to your lease, whether it is transferring or adding/changing the names on the lease, the issues identified on your RPR in red, as “trespass” or “encroachment” need to be addressed. Please reach out to me with any questions surrounding this.

Permits Required

Just a reminder to everyone, as in previous years, you must have authorization and/or permit to conduct any work on your leased lot (tree/veg. removal, building/constructing, etc.). Contact the office if you have any questions and to obtain the appropriate forms and application or visit our website at


Saskatchewan Provincial Parks will continue to participate in the SaskAlert program; below is brief description of SaskAlert. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me. I encourage everyone to have the SaskAlert app installed on any of your phones or devices.

SaskAlert is Saskatchewan's new emergency public alerting program that contributes to the national alerting system being used across Canada called Alert Ready. The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport is in the process of training Park staff to issue alerts through SaskAlert. Sask Parks participation in the SaskAlert program will allow the public to be notified in real-time if an emergency is occurring within the park. This system will provide residents, businesses and even those travelling through the area with information to take actions to protect themselves. Please refer to the enclosed brochure for more information.

Contact Information

Please ensure the Park office has your most recent email address and contact information as all correspondence from the park will be communicated via email.

Wishing you a wonderful summer, filled with great memories and beautiful weather. Hope to see you soon.
