Saskatoon Island Provincial Park is one of Alberta's first provincial parks, dating back to 1932, and has been a federal migratory bird sanctuary since 1948. Located just 20 minutes west of Grande Prairie, the park's mosaic of forests, wetlands, shrub lands and native prairie provides habitat for an amazing variety of plants and animals. The park is just over 100 hectares in size and is home to a large number of grassland, forest and lakeside birds, including the Trumpeter Swan. The park is situated on an isthmus between two lakes - Saskatoon Lake and Little Lake. The lakes are not suitable for swimming due to low water levels and thick vegetation, however, they are great places to watch waterfowl, canoe or kayak. The park is open year round to enjoy during any season.
This park has everything you need to enjoy an outdoor getaway that is still close to home. The day use area is FREE for public to use and includes:
There are two day use shelters located at Saskatoon Island Provincial Park.
Both shelters have large fire pits located outside and are close by the Day Use area.
The main campground is nestled along the shore of Saskatoon Lake. There are over 100 campsites, including 15/30 amp powered sites in Loop A and C, un-serviced sites in Loop B and walk-in tenting sites along the shoreline. Firewood, water, showers, and sewage disposal are all available seasonally. Site sizes vary between 21 to 30 feet.
The group campsite is located just off the shoreline of Saskatoon Lake and can be reserved as a private camping area for groups. This area includes 15/30 amp power hookups, picnic tables, a private cook shelter, fire pit area, volleyball net, horseshoe pits and pit/vault toilets.
