Things To Do
There are plenty of activities for water lovers and landlubbers. The 15-km (9.3-mile) Nut Point Hiking Trail traversing a treed and rocky peninsula reaching out into Lac La Ronge offers a rich interaction with this pre-Cambrian wilderness. In winter, the park is a gorgeous white wonderland for cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and ice fishers.
The park's strong pull is its rugged beauty and extensive opportunities for water-based recreation. Fifty-one percent of the park is water - Lac La Ronge is Saskatchewan's fourth largest lake and features 1,305 islands. In fact, much of what's interesting and inspiring in the park can only be reached in summertime by canoe or boat, including: Holy Trinity Anglican Church, the oldest building in Saskatchewan; Nistowiak Falls, at 24 m, is one of the highest in the province; and the old and enigmatic rock paintings (pictographs) found along shorelines, evidence of the spirituality practised by the ancestors of the Woodland Cree who live here today.
Wadin Bay offers two beaches complete with children's playground equipment, grass and sand areas. Swimming area is marked with buoys. No lifeguard supervision provided, swim at you own risk.
Fish species sought after in the park include: Walleye, Sauger, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Whitefish and Burbot. Rainbow Trout stocked in three lakes.
Boat launches are located at all lake access points. Launch areas consist of natural to cements pads.
