Trails and Facilities Conditions
The park offers 17 trails varying in length and difficulty, from short walks to overnight backcountry excursions. Select trails allow biking or horseback riding. Before you head out on any excursion, visit or call the Visitor Centre at (306) 663-4522 for the latest on trails and facilities conditions.

Opportunities for wildlife watching are great at this time of year!
Days are longer and wildlife is active, especially in the mornings and evenings. Springtime means that calving season has begun for deer, elk, and moose! Bears are out and about, and have been seen in the park with their cubs! Drive slowly and have your camera ready for some great shots.

Remember to exercise caution around wildlife. These animals are unpredictable and must be given space. Keep at least 3 bus lengths (30m) from deer, elk, moose, and bison and 10 bus lengths (100m) from bears.

Visitor Centre Summer Hours:
The Prince Albert National Park Visitor Centre is open daily to answer questions you may have and provide updated information on park conditions.
Call (306) 663-4522, email [email protected], or visit us in Waskesiu during opening hours. Daily: 8:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m.
