“Best National Park in the Province!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We love to go to PANP, have done so just about every summer for the past 30 years. What bad things can you say about a place this beautiful? Our favourite place to camp is a little semi-wilderness campground south of Waskesiu. The lake is very clean, (because there are no motorboats allowed), and full of fish. There are only 22 camping sites, 6 of which are located right on the beach. If you don't mind chemical toilets, no water or electricity, this place is paradise on earth. You can always grab a shower at Beaver Glen near the town, or take a swim on the lake, which warms up much more than some of the larger ones.

Of course, if you prefer modern amenities, then some of the other campgrounds have them, and they are very nice too. Actually, you can find everything in this park, from AAA hotel accommodation to back-pack tenting. The choice is yours.

“Its own unique national park allure”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Each national park was selected because it displays unique characteristics, be it topographical, historical, etc. PANP is thousands of sq km that span the transition from parkland to woodland. You'll see buffalo, elk, perhaps a wolf in the distance, pelicans and American bald eagles. Very little of the park is actually ever visited, which means the avid canoeist can love it. Beware, though, that June brings massive clouds of mosquitoes! Our favorite time to visit is late August/early September. Gorgeous! Many of the locals say winter is their favorite time!

“The paradise on earth”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

If you believe there is paradise I can ensure you that's it. You have to visit it and enjoy the perfect nature every where.
Nice restaurants and cafe's by idyllic lakes and lots of different facilities to enjoy.
You can rent a cabin or you can stay with a motor-home.
A nice part of Canada!!!!

“Beautiful and serene”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

"Just like going to Jasper, without the mountains.", but also a lot less busy, especially in September when the weather was still great, with cooler mornings and evenings. We had some really nice hikes/walks, went fishing in rented boats on the mostly deserted Waskasiu Lake, kayaked, canoed, and drove around looking at scenery and wildlife, too. We brought our golf clubs, but we were able to keep busy without them. :O)

“Always nice”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Absolutely what Saskatchewan is about. Trees and lakes! Not flat land like most people think. The two best course in the province, beautiful lake, excellent hiking trails and even shopping if you,re into that sort of thing.
