Cypress Lake, Saskatchewan

This lake is a hidden gem in the southwest corner of Saskatchewan in RM of Reno #51, about 15 minutes north of Consul. The boating, water sports and fishing are unbeatable! The walleye are sure to be biting, winter or summer! Cypress Lake is about 7 miles long tip to tip and at the widest point is about 2 miles. Boating around Heglund Island, a bird sanctuary, makes for a great afternoon. This secluded, quiet prairie lake is barely even mentioned on the internet, it’s a southwestern Saskatchewan secret! Camping (no hookups or running water) is available. Cost is by optional donation to Friends of Cypress Lake. No reservations.



Elkwater (Cypress Hills, Alberta) has a large lake for swimming and boating and is a great place to camp! One side of the lake is forested trees, and the other side is natural Alberta prairie. There is a small store, places to eat, boat rentals and more.
