North of the Prairies
North of Prince Albert, travelers enter a land of sparkling lakes, rugged rocky outcrops, and forests of spruce and pine. For those who know only the prairies of Saskatchewan, it is a surprise to discover almost half of the province is a wilderness, where forestry and mining are the mainstays. Montreal Lake, Saskatchewan's geographic center, lies just east of Prince Albert National Park, a popular provincial destination. Farther north, Meadow Lake and Lac La Ronge provincial parks hold out the promise of outdoor recreations in pristine settings.
Cold Lake. Alta. [D3]
This 374 km2 lake is a fishing paradise, shared by Alberta and Saskatchewan. The best jumping-off point is the Alberta town of Cold Lake. The marina has berths for more than 250 boats, and offers boat rentals. Cold Lake Provincial Park, 4 km northeast of the marina, provides facilities for camping, boating, and fishing.
Lac La Ronge Provincial Park [C7] With almost a hundred lakes (including Lac La Ronge), Saskatchewan's largest provincial park is renowned for its lake trout, northern pike, and walleye. The town of La Ronge provides outfitting services to travelers looking to visit the park's many remote fishing camps. Apart from some 30 documented canoe routes, the park's also offers white-water canoeing, kayaking, and houseboats rentals.
Meadow Lake Provincial Park [D3-D4] At 1,600 km2, this is one of Saskatchewan's largest parks. It contains a chain of 25 lakes, all ideal for boating and fishing. The park has more than 900 campsites, ranging from the basics to full-service.
Nipawin [E7] The "Northern Pike Capital of the World," Nipawin holds a northern pike festival in summer where fishermen vie to catch one of four tagged pike released into Tobin Lake. The Living Forestry Museum features many restored logging and timber artifacts, including a working sawmill once used by pioneers.
Prince Albert [E6] A prime attraction, Diefen-baker House, honors Prime Minister John Diefenbaker who represented the city from 1953 until his death in 1979. The historical museum traces the city's past, which began in 1776 when a fur-trade post was built on the north side of the North Saskatchewan River. The community on the south side was founded by the Rev. John Nisbet in 1866, whose original log Presbyterian church is located in Kinsmen Park.
Prince Albert National Park [D6] Deep inside this 3,875 km2 park, beside Adjawann Lake, lies the grave of Grey Owl (1888-1938). The nearby log cabin was home to the famous conservationist during his last years. At Waskesiu Lake townsite, an interpretive center describes the park's wildlife, which includes a herd of bison.
St. Walburg [E4] The Imhoff Gallery, on a small farm 8 km from St. Walburg, displays 250 works by German-born painter, Count Berthold von Imhoff (1868-1939), who settled here in 1913. Imhoff built the studio that now displays his art. In his lifetime, Imhoff decorated over 100 churches throughout North America.
Stanley Mission [B7]
Saskatchewan's first Anglican church, Holy Trinity Church, was constructed here between 1854 and 1860 using local logs and over 1,000 pieces of stained glass imported from Britain. It is now a provincial historic site.
