Pick a Park – Saskatchewan’s Best Kept Secrets – Moose Mountain Provincial Park

Moose Mountain itself resembles a resting moose on the horizon, and in the 30’s, this section of the province was chosen as an ideal spot for one of our six Provincial parks. The park is tucked away in the Southeast corner of Saskatchewan, only 24kms north of the town of Carlyle and 60kms from Whitewood, giving campers plenty of options for activities both in the park and its neighboring towns.

Moose Mountain has a distinctive piece of Saskatchewan Heritage gracing the entrance to the park. The Chalet, as it’s known, is an imposing stone lodge which can be seen from most of the public areas of the park. This building along with fourteen cabins built for summer renters were initially constructed as a Depression era public works project. Four of those original cabins still stand today and are used to showcase local artists’ work. The Chalet now acts as the parks Visitor’s Centre and houses administrative offices on the second floor. The Park has been an unqualified success since it first opened many decades ago and it continues to draw visitors from the province and beyond.

The park itself spans over 400 sq. kms and surrounds Kenosee Lake. It is one of Saskatchewan’s few parks with a community inside the park as there are several subdivisions with both year-round and seasonal residents. Tucked within the well-established forest there are two main campsites – Lynwood, the smaller of the two, with 30 sites and Fish Creek the more expansive area which is divided into 4 sections with well over 300 sites.  Many of these sites are full service.

Moose Mountain Provincial Park is a great option for you and your family if you like to be where there’s always something going on!
