Little Loon Regional Park Public Beach


Little Loon Regional Park is popular for long term camping. There is a $7 fee to enter the park, or $40 for an annual pass with access to all Saskatchewan Regional Parks. The beach is small, stretching only about 100m and the sand is coarse and mixed with small pebbles. The lake bottom has a similar composition. The water is quite murky and there are a lot of weeds suspended close to the shoreline. There is a designated swimming area marked by buoys, and all swimming is unsupervised.

Access to the park is through the regional park gates off of highway 3. There is no designated parking area, so visitors should find parking anywhere near the entrance to the regional park from which the beach is about a 10 minute walk. The beach is popular with families due to the close proximity of lakefront camping sites and large day use spaces in the regional park. There is a boat launch located within the regional park, and boating seems to be popular on the lake.

The view across from and around the beach is natural forest, giving this area a secluded feel. Loon Lake is long and narrow, and the beach is located on a narrow section so the lake appears smaller than it is. Because of the narrowness, boat activity can be loud and create large waves. There are a few day use sites with picnic tables and BBQs behind the beach, backing onto a large grassy field. The regional park has washroom and store facilities near the park gates. Most of the campsites in the park are located on the waterfront, so this park is a great option for those who would like to camp near the water with only a short walk to a secluded, family friendly beach.
