Park Description

The park sits on gracefully treed, well grassed lakeside land. The park has a private cottage development as well as seasonal and daily camping sites. In addition there is a outdoor pool and paddling pool and a nine hole grass green golf course; four of the holes are along the lake so as well as being a challenge there is a beautiful view. The lake is great for boating and fishing.


Local Services

The park is located about 10 minutes from either Lafleche or Gravelbourg and offer grocery stores, post offices, mechanical shops, and gas stations. There is a RCMP detachment and hospital in Gravelbourg. Both communities have churches.


Park / Area History

In the mid 1950s the PFRA began work on the Lafleche Storage Project. This project was building a dam on the Wood River to control the flow of the river and conserve the runoff for local use for stock watering, irrigation and municipal purposes. Dr. Leonard Thomson, the PFRA director at that time, saw the reservoir as more than a source for these purposes; he also saw the possible recreation potential the reservoir would have. Dr. Thomson's idea was soon grasped by local residents and the seed for Thomson Lake Regional Park was sown. Thomson Lake Regional Park hold the very first regional park Charter dated March 21, 1961.


Barrier Free Access

Washrooms and the shower houses are wheel chair accessible. Most facilities at Thomson Lake are wheelchair accessible.
