Sturgeon Lake

Sturgeon Lake is a popular fishing and boating lake located about 30 minutes north of Prince Albert. The lake was created by a dam across the Sturgeon River. Almost the entire lake is bordered by Sturgeon Lake First Nation. Sturgeon Lake Regional Park is located on the lake. There are quite a few cabins within the Regional Park as well as a campground, store/restaurant, and boat launch.

This lake has been personally visited by myself, Matthew Siemens.

Comment from Matthew Siemens
Water is slowly starting to go down, still much higher then average levels.
Comment from Matthew Siemens
Regional park boat launch hasn’t been plowed. I’d suggest a snowmobile or a truck to get down to the water.

Put the canoes in at the gravel pit and canoed down the Sturgeon River to the lake and through the culvert. There are quite a few trees and obstructions across the river right now, but it's a really pretty paddle.

Comment from Matthew Siemens
Very high water levels right now. Lots of docks 6 inches under water. More water waiting to come through the culvert so it might continue to go up for a few days.

Sturgeon Lake Boat Launch

Sturgeon Lake Regional Park Beach

Sturgeon Lake Regional Park West Block

Located to the west of the culvert separating Sturgeon Lake into two.

There is a very nice day-use picnic area here, as well as a playground. There is no boat launch on this side of the lake but it is possible to carry a small boat or canoe/kayak down to the water here.

This side of the lake is quite quiet and the lack of big boats makes it a really nice paddling spot!

Pickeral Point Subdivision

There are quite a few cabins located at Pickeral Point. This subdivision is located directly within the RM of Shellbrook and not in the Regional Park.

All of the cabins here are lake front. The road down can be quite slick and muddy during the spring.
