According to the park website, there are over 1,500 lakes within Prince Albert National Park. We have only been able to find records for 83 of these lakes. The rest are most likely small and unnamed. Many of these lakes are relatively inaccessible with no road access requiring either a float plane, canoe, hiking, or some combination of these to access.

Waskesiu Lake

Waskesiu Lake is the most well know lake in the park as well has having the most services and being the easiest to access. Thousands flock to Waskesiu Lake every year. Looking to camp, hike, paddle, swim, and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the townsite.

Kingsmere is a popular fishing, canoeing, and hiking destination in its own right. but is also used as a transit to Ajawaan Lake.
