Park / Area History

In the 1950s, John From, a professional landscaper and local land owner built a small summer park to provide some recreation facilities for residents of this area. Two lakes were dug, a golf course and a few campsites were built. In 1972, poor health caused Mr. From to offer the park for sale to the Regional Park Authority. The park is located along the Carlton Cart Trail, which was the most important overland route through nineteenth-century Saskatchewan, linking Fort Garry with Edmonton House during the fur trade era. The nearby Wolverine Historical Society shows artifacts from the surrounding area.

Camping

In two campground areas of the park there are 75 electrical sites and 10 non-electrical overflow sites. Each site has potable water, fire pits, and picnic tables. The sites are cut out of mature parkland forest, so aspen, willow and wild fruit trees dominate the campgrounds; hundreds of spruce trees have been planted in the past 20 years. Sites are large with a gravelled pad, 30 amp electrical service. There are washrooms throughout the campground as well as a shower facility located at the main building. The main building also includes a restaurant as well as a licensed area.


Group Camping

A 64 foot x 40 foot events building with a 150 foot x 200 foot fenced enclosure was built for use in 2006. Large groups rent this facility for tournaments, family reunions and other events.  Some serviced group camping is available with and Events Building booking; please call the Pro Shop for details. There is also overflow camping available for large groups of campers.  These sites have picnic tables and fire pits in each site. No power at the overflow sites.
