Whether your idea of adventure is portaging a canoe between remote forest lakes or a day of pulse-racing waterskiing and wakeboarding, Prince Albert National Park satisfies with a mix of wilderness and accessibility.

Hit the beach or get on the water in Waskesiu, the lakeside town that serves as the park’s hub. Or leave civilization behind as you hike, explore back country lakes and maybe even spot wild bison.

Prince Albert National Park was officially opened in 1928 and is open all year round for amazing outdoor activities for all ages. Waskesiu Lake is the most visited part of the park. The park is also home of the cabin of the naturalist and conservationist Grey Owl, on Ajawaan Lake.

Waskesiu (Cree for “red deer”) is the only town within the park, located on the eastern shore of Waskesiu Lake and is approximately 90 km north of Prince Albert National Park.

Camping in Prince Albert National Park offers a wide range of camping from fully serviced and primitive (non-serviced) vehicle accessible campgrounds to simpler “get back to nature” backcountry campgrounds. Learn more.
