Park Description

The park is in a natural treed setting amid rolling hills in the heart of ranch country. On those hot days you can go for a dip in our brand new outdoor swimming pool! There is a beach entrance at one end and it gradually gets deeper with a diving board. The water is guarded by experienced lifeguards and lessons are taught weekday mornings. The public can swim in the afternoons and evenings all week. Season passes and daily rates are available. The park is a good site for family reunions, because of the spacious campsites and family activities available. The park has a hall for family gatherings and also a booth with confectionery goods and meals. If you want to eat or cook indoors, a summer kitchen is available for use. There are also laundry, shower, and trailer facilities.


Local Services

The nearest gas and groceries can be found in Limerick, Glentworth or Lafleche. For a full line of services you can travel to Assiniboia northeast of Wood Mountain. A walking trail to Historic Old Post NWMP Museum is located beside the park. It's a friendly place to discover our Rodeo Ranch Museum and Sitting Bull Monument.


Park / Area History

Wood Mountain's first European settlers came in the 1870's. Boundary Commission survey teams came shortly after. They built cabins that in 1874 became the first North West Mounted Police post. Sitting Bull took refuge here after the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876.


Barrier Free Access

The zero beach portion (shallow end) of our swimming pool is accessible by wheelchair. All other portions of the park - camping, washrooms, playground, concession, etc. are also wheelchair accessible.
