Things To Do

Water Recreation

Last Mountain Lake is southern Saskatchewan’s largest natural lake.  Also called Long Lake for this reason, it is famous for great fishing, sailing and all sorts of water recreation.

Swimming

The recreation park has one of the longest and safest sand beaches of any lake in southern Saskatchewan.  Wrapping around both sides of a long sandpit, so that no matter what direction the wind blows, there is always a protected area for water sports.  Also located on the beach is a volleyball court and children’s creative playground equipment.

Fishing

Last Mountain Lake - Imagine, if you’re an angler, a place you can drive to, on paved highways with excellent facilities for launching a boat.  Continue this imagination with the idea that, within a few minutes of being on the water, and with a bit of effort and knowledge, you have at least a fifty percent chance of catching a trophy Walleye.  This is what Last Mountain Lake has to offer.  Other species include Perch, Pike, Burbot, Whitefish, Carp and Buffalo Fish.  Walleye over 14 pounds, Pike over 25 pounds and Carp over 40 pounds are not uncommon.  During the winter the lake also offers great ice fishing opportunities.

A fishing licence is required for persons 16 years of age and over and can be purchased at the campground/administration office.  Anglers’ Guides are also available here.  Be sure to ask for a free “fishing licence” for the kids, too!

Boat Launch/Marina

With a vast expanse of water to explore, Last Mountain Lake offers pleasure boaters and water skiers a great deal.  The lake is large, long and wide open to prevailing winds, making it a haven for sailboaters.  A boat-launching facility is available.  No boats allowed within buoyed area at main beach.

Cycling

Enjoy cycling on paved roads throughout the park and campground area.  Bicycle rentals are available at the mini-golf.
