On the edge of nature: Experiencing the Town of Waskesiu
Located inside the park, the resort town of Waskesiu offers travellers a convenient hub for exploring Prince Albert’s wilderness. Downtown is set right on the sandy shores of Waskesiu Lake, adjacent a 600-metre-long beach. Swim, motorboat, canoe and more, with rentals available at the marina.
Looking for creature comforts? Waskesiu has an array of dining, from coffee shops to white-linen restaurants, and diverse accommodation options, including hotels, cabins and the 210-site Beaver Glen campground (which includes ten oTENTiks, a cross between a tent and a rustic cabin) and 161-site full-service Red Deer campground. Explore heritage buildings, a museum, and a nature centre. Best of all, the town has the rest of 3,875-square-kilometre Prince Albert as its backyard.
