Park Description

The "best kept secret in the whole world", (a quote from one of our patrons). Beautiful moments happen every second at Brightsand Lake Regional Park.

Tucked away down a country road, 27 km north and east of St. Walburg, Brightsand is a stunning destination park awaiting discovery. Northern wilderness plays host to a well developed facility, boosting many amenities for outdoor recreation and camping comfort. Spanning 1600 acres across the entire north end of Brightsand Lake, the park offers campsites set in their own piece of forest. Several premium sites are located on their own beach area. Nature lovers, golfers, fishermen and beach lovers will enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of our "family park".


Local Services

St. Walburg is home to the famous Berthold Von Imhoff art gallery, and a historical museum housed at the end of Main Street in the former Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption. August is the Polka Fest and the Blueberry Festival. St. Walburg offers all the services/amenities a town can offer such as grocery store, gas stations, restaurants, motels, banking facilities, 18 hole grass green golf course and more.


Park / Area History

Founded in 1965, by surrounding communities, Brightsand Lake Regional Park has undergone a gentle evolution, starting out as a meeting point for the local community. Cabin lots and campsites soon became available, and travelers from many areas soon discovered the towering spruce trees, the clear water and sandy, mile long beach of Brightsand Lake. As families moved away, many kept returning for cabin and vacation time, and told their friends, which is why it is a popular summertime retreat.


Barrier Free Access

Washrooms and showers are barrier free, concession entrance features a ramp, and there are many campsites which are open and level.

Swimming

Swimming lesson Preregistration must be done at the office by June 30.  Registration can occur at the time of booking a camping reservation.  Fees MUST BE PAID IN FULL at time of registration.

Playground/Recreation Activities

The playground is structured at the west entrance at the main beach, near the concession.  Welcome to a brand new playground featuring “a unique natural atmosphere”.  Memories from the past have been retained with the staircase slide.

Boating and Fishing

For those who come to Brightsand, a stocked trout pool is always popular with the junior anglers and many older ones as well. Brightsand Lake is also famous for the “Monster Jack” – great eating, if you are lucky enough to catch one in its cool, clean waters. Situated just past the concession a new boat launch was installed in 2013. Many happy hours are spent boating, tubing and enjoying all water sports. Fishing licences are no longer sold at the park.

Hiking/Nature Trails

A 28 km trail though the park is an extensive grid that take the hiker through just about every type of habitat the Boreal Forest has to offer – black spruce, tamarack lowlands, white spruce highlands, old growth Boreal, bogs, marshes and lakefront terrain. Originally marked and cleared in the 1950’s and early 70’s, Brightsand Lake has done considerable work on these trails in following years by adding directional and interpretive signage. All trails are open to hikers and mountain bikes. Check at the main office for maps and details regarding the trails.

Mini Golf

The 18 hole mini-golf course has undergone a major renovation – new turf, new edging, new fence and new obstacles. Features a step back in the past theme. Be sure to enjoy it.
