Pick a Park – Saskatchewan’s Best Kept Secrets- Last Mountain Regional Park

Saskatchewan is vast and is often the subject of teasing from other Canadians who think it’s only flat and covered with prairie grass.  While we do have areas like that, we also have hidden gems throughout the province where lakes, trees, and wildlife abound.  To the uninitiated these are some of the provinces best kept secrets!  Minard’s Leisure World has decided to dispel the Saskatchewan myths and share the best the province has to offer with our Pick a Park series!  In this series we will feature a different park, some more well known than others, but all little gems that show the diversity of this province.

This week Minard’s Leisure World is drawing attention to Saskatchewan’s Last Mountain Regional Park, located on the shores of Last Mountain Lake, roughly 131km from Regina and 183km from Saskatoon!  The park offers seasonal and daily camping, as well as cabin rentals!  Their season runs from May 15th – September 25th!

Last Mountain Lake celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2021 and holds the title of North America’s oldest bird sanctuary!

This park offers a wide range of amenities:

  • an outdoor pool (with swimming lessons available)
  • a nine-hole golf course
  • volleyball court
  • playground
  • nature/hiking trails
  • bird watching
  • boat launch
  • shower house
  • laundry facilities
  • concession


Fishing is also a major attraction at Last Mountain Lake!  They’re known for their abundant populations of walleye, northern pike, yellow perch, and other freshwater species.

Close by, the town of Govan has a grocery store, hotel with a restaurant, a museum, and its own golf course.  Nokomis is a little bit further away but does offer more accommodations.  To book your next camping trip at Last Mountain Regional Park please click here.
