Stayed here in late December and it was gorgeous. Beautiful forest and lots of wildlife sign. Would love to go back in Summer. The park seems pretty accessible and there are few people in winter. There is also a lot of ice fishing, snow-mobiling and snow-shoeing
What's not to like about P.A. National Park? This time of year (November) there are no crowds, but no amenities such as a store or liquor outlet, so keep that in mind.
We were in Waskesiu for three days. We canoed The Hang Heart Lakes, Which was fabulous and Waskesiu Lake west of the Narrows, which was very good.

Beautiful place to visit any time of year, but the autumn colours were amazing. There are plenty of nature walks to take, and you won't be swarmed by people while you take advantage of them. Nice, quiet place to visit where sometimes all you can hear is the wind whispering in the treetops.

After leaving the town and driving around we found that signage or direction to any... 更多

Lots of awesome hiking trail if that your thing. Or just kick back at the beach and chill for the afternoon. Lots of accommodations provided. With... 更多
We enjoyed the Boundary Bog trail. It is 2 km with 1/3 wooden Boardwalk. The circular trial leads to a small lake. You can ride but need to carry your bike up some steps. Many mozzies so bring repellant. The trail head is just inside the park gates where you pay off 264. Very charming. Mud Creek trail is on... 更多
Touring northern Saskatchewan we went to the park to show to visiting relatives from the UK. We were very impressed with how clean the park was, the maintenance of the facilities and roads, the marina and the vast number of scenic points
