Things To Do At Crooked Lake

Camping, fishing and boating are popular pastimes in this small and quiet family park. There is a boat launch and fish filleting shelter for successful anglers. Hikers and cyclists can access the Trans Canada Trail that runs through the valley and into the mixed prairie grassland beyond. The large, day-use area of the park, meanwhile, features a large irrigated lawn, a creative playground, as well as picnic areas with barbecues under a canopy of Green Ash and Poplar right by the lake.

Just 3 km from the park, the Last Oak Golf and Country Club is an 18-hole, fully irrigated grass green facility with a pro shop, restaurant and lounge. There are resorts with cabin rentals 2 km east and west of the park. Together they offer groceries, gas, mini-golf, laundry facilities, an arcade, and a flea market every Sunday from June to the Labour Day weekend.

History Tour

The Qu'Appelle Valley has a long and exciting history.  Visit the Moose Bay Burial Mound Historic Marker opposite the park entrance on Highway #247 to learn about early First Nations life, and death, in the valley.  Follow the Qu'Appelle Valley Scenic Tour Route east on Highway #247 to find the Round Lake Mission Historic Marker.  Other historic markers showcase the fur trade at Ft. John and Ft. Esperance.  Be on the lookout for the Hamona Marker, commemorating an early co-operative community in the valley.  Contact the entry gate for further information and directions.
