Find a home away from home near the sandy shores of Clear Lake at the Wasagaming campground. Welcome to a whole new way of camping. No more squabbles over lost tent pegs, no more struggling to remember which pole goes where. Parks Canada oTENTiks blend the best of camping with A-frame cabins to create a spacious spot for you to enjoy the beauty of the prairies. Inside find three comfy sleeping platforms with space for up to six happy campers, a wood stove perfect for those cooler nights and a table with seating for six.
After a day hiking the fescue prairie spotting wild bison and moose, come together on the front deck for a BBQ and a night telling stories and singing songs around the fire pit. Relaxed, easy and no-stress camping for those who love the wilderness and their creature comforts too.
