Park Description

Lac Pelletier is a GREAT place to visit for camping, golfing, and fishing. Lac Pelletier is a natural spring fed lake and offers something for everyone, young and old. Have children? Take them to the playground or swimming on the beaches. Bring their bikes and go biking or go to the mini golf.

Are you an adult who likes to camp but does not boat or swim? Go for a walk and see the Centennial Rings developed in 2005 or climb to the top of the hills and see a fantastic view of the valley. There is nothing like watching the spectacular sunset or just sitting around your campfire at night.

Do not feel like cooking? Clancy's Licensed Restaurant/Convenience Store will make you a great meal and restock your cupboards with the necessities.

Lac Pelletier Golf Club offers you a nine-hole golf course with watered fairways and grass greens. The clubhouse is licensed. The new putting green will be open in 2018.

Rent the Community Hall for a wedding, anniversary, or reunion.

Come to the Farmers Market every Saturday from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Park Office from May long to September long weekend.

This is a terrific location, camp and enjoy.

Park / Area History

Lac Pelletier, named after Norbert Pelletier, a Metis who held the first land grant in the vicinity before 1900, has long been recognized as a sweet oasis on the prairies. Buffalo hunting, abundant whitefish and open range are part of the history that makes up the beautiful Lac Pelletier Regional Park. Picture the sod house that once stood at the restful camping sites of the Point. It was here that the Lemire family was raised. They rented boats and supplied the local Swift Current store with fish. Better yet, imagine a cave at the southern end of the lake that was home to a French priest who taught catechism and the Cree language to the locals.

The sandy beach on the east side of the lake was once home to a circular tearoom, dance hall, change house and confectionary. The McLaughlins are credited with the resorts early beginnings, later owned by the Quankenbush family and finally the Darling family. The Darling family planted trees and continued landscaping the park.

The Regional Park was established in November 1964 and attributes its success to the volunteers and neighbors who helped it grow.
