Anglin Lake Recreation Site Public Beach at Anderson Point Campground


Anglin Lake Recreation Site is located in the heart of Saskatchewans Lakeland. The public beach is located within the Anderson Point Campground. There is ample parking near the boat launch, and a short sandy trail through the forest will connect you to the beach. The beach is small but very private.

The beach is made of fine golden sand, and only a few reeds wash up on the shore. The water is clear, and the lake bottom is a mixture of small to medium sized rocks. It is shallow for most of the designated swimming area which is marked by buoys. All swimming is unsupervised and there is a steep drop off after the buoys so swimmers should use caution. There is one bench on the shoreline for beach goers to enjoy.

The beach is surrounded by a dense forest of trees and shrubs. The shoreline across from the beach is extremely natural which adds to the secluded feel of the beach. The boat launch and public dock are a short walk from the beach and that area also features outhouses. Trash facilities are located on the beach and near the boat launch. No fishing off of the dock, but there is a fish fileting station near the boat launch for what you do catch while on the lake!

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Anglin Lake Recreation Site Public Beach at Anderson Point Campground is not sampled

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health monitors freshwater beaches across the province of Saskatchewan. Water samples at this beach are processed by the Roy Romanow Provincial Laboratory.

Beaches are monitored at varying frequencies for E. Coli and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) from the end of June to the end of August. There are weekly reports on the beaches’ recreational water quality results posted on the Healthy Beach Program website from July to early September.

Water quality is monitored in accordance with the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality under Saskatchewan’s Healthy Beach Program.

The levels of E. coli are measured using the most probable number methodology. High levels of E. coli can indicate faecal contamination, which poses human health risks for gastrointestinal illnesses, as well as ear, nose, and throat infections. In accordance with the guidelines, a beach is marked green when a single sample result is less than 400 E. coli organisms in 100 milliliters of water or the geometric mean of five samples is less than or equal to 200 E. coli per 100 milliliters of water. A beach is marked red when a single sample results has greater than 400 E. coli per 100 ml of water.

The Government of Saskatchewan advises to avoid swimming and in-water activities during water quality advisories. There will be warning signs at the beaches with poor water quality results until the risk to public health is resolved.
