Notice: Located on the shores of Buffalo Lake, Rochon Sands Provincial Park is a manicured landscape that provides camping facilities and beach access; from the comfort of their campsites, park visitors can watch the graceful flight of geese on their late summer migration south; in the campground, undergrowth provides protection from wind while large trees create a cool, shady picnic area.
