McLennan Canoe Trails
The McLennan Lake Area in North Central Saskatchewan offers beautiful and exciting canoe trails that are perfect for individuals and families of all ages and abilities. Currently, there are 26 canoe trails in the area that run between 2.5 km to 83 km in length and are fairly easy to navigate. Some of the routes can be traveled in one day, while others will require several days to complete.
McLennan Lake, which is 22.5 km long, is the main starting point for the trail routes. Portage points connect McLennan Lake to several other outstanding, calm, pristine lakes, including Versailles Lake, Davis Lake, Driediger Bay, and Hutchings Lake. Excellent campsites are located throughout the trails, and visitors will be treated to the sights and sounds of Saskatchewan’s Boreal Forest, which boasts picturesque views, granite rock formations, dense forests and a wide variety of plant, bird and animal species. Trout and northern pike are also found throughout the region, making it an enticing fishing location.
Visitors are encouraged to park their vehicles at the service station located at the McLennan Lake launch point before heading out onto the trails. Remember to respect the wildlife in the area and keep your distance from them at all times. Please do not create your own campsites, leave the area as you found it, and take out everything that you packed in. If you do not wish to camp along the trails, rustic rental cabins are available at Bear’s Camp, which is on the shores of McLennan Lake.
Guided canoe trips, rental equipment, lessons, accommodations, maps and supplies can also be purchased through the Churchill River Canoe Outfitters in Missinipe. For more information, visit www.churchillrivercanoe.com.
