Things to See & Do
Asessippi Provincial Park
Located at the southeastern end of the man-made Lake of the Prairies, Asessippi Provincial Park includes facilities for camping, trails for hiking and snowmobiling, boating, swimming and watersports on the lake and some of the best walleye fishing in North America.
Both the Assiniboine and Shell Rivers provide good boating and canoeing (rentals are available at Asessippi Park Concesssion). The steeply contoured land around the lake, featuring many hills and valleys, provides a picturesque route for cyclists.
Facilities also include horseshoe pits, ball diamonds, children’s playgrounds, group camping facilities, concession and mini-golf. A number of campgrounds surround the lake which is 67 km (42 miles) in length, making it possible to take a leisurely tour around the lake with several overnight stops.
Lake of the Prairies has recorded an annual walleye catch per square kilometre that is five times greater than the provincial average. The lake is well-stocked and to preserve the high quality of the fishery, a slot limit on catches is enforced.
