Introduction

Lac La Ronge Provincial Park is one of northern Saskatchewan’s largest and most popular provincial parks. The park operates year-round, creating multi-seasonal recreational activities for people of all interests, regardless of the season. The park sits in the heart of the Churchill River System, a series of rivers and lakes that form a chain of waterways, often connecting 20 or more bodies of water together without a break in the water. The water is both smooth flowing and full of rapids, depending on its location. In Lac La Ronge, Nistowiak Falls marks the highest falls in Saskatchewan; a formation made where the Lac La Ronge enters the Churchill River System. People who love water activities visit the park because it has over 100 lakes and interconnected waterways, and there is something fun, like Nistowiak Falls, to see in almost every corner of the park.

If you are interested in staying at Lac La Ronge Provincial Park overnight, you have more than one campground to choose from. For RV campers, there are seven provincial park campgrounds as well as two private campgrounds located within the park’s boundaries to choose overnight camping accommodations. The campgrounds are located in different sections of the park, and each camping area has something different to offer campers. There are waterfront campsites and forested campsites to choose from, as well as various amenities and levels of service. Choose the campground that best suits your RV camping needs!

Fishing

With so many lakes and rivers, it’s impossible for an angler to ignore the calls of the water. Lac La Ronge Provincial Park is known for its fishing, and many of the campgrounds are close to boat docks, boat launches, and fish-cleaning stations. The lakes, rivers, and streams are stocked with fish such as walleye, northern pike, lake trout, sauger, whitefish, and burbot. The abundant fish means there are plenty of opportunities for anglers of all abilities to catch a fish. Saskatchewan law requires all anglers ages 16 and older to hold a valid fishing license. If you don’t have a permit before coming to the park, you may purchase one at the Park Office.

Cross Country Skiing

In the winter, when the hiking trails are covered in snow, the pathways become Nordic ski zones. The most popular activity is cross country skiing, and skiers have 38 miles (62 km) of trails to ski on, so there is plenty of park to traverse without having to cross paths with other skiers. Some of the trails are groomed, and other trails are geared toward freestyle cross country skiing. The La Ronge Ski club utilizes the trails, and many of the groomed trails have lights or are designated ski-club trails. Contact the La Ronge Ski Club for more information.
