  • Asessippi Provincial Park Detour in Effect - May 9, 2017

    Due to the recurring slumping of soils which have destabilized a section of the main park entrance road at Asessippi Provincial Park, a closure has been implemented for this section of the road between the boat launch and the park campground and day use areas.

    In order to provide ongoing public access into the campground and day use areas in the park a detour has been put into place utilizing municipal roadways from Provincial Road 482 (See map). A section of the main park entrance road immediately adjacent to Provincial Road 482 will remain open providing ongoing public access to the boat launch on Lake of the Prairies.

    This closure will remain in effect until further notice.

Access to parts of the beach will be limited on race days – mostly limited to mornings.  Please respect detours and reduced speed limits and help make the games a safe and enjoyable experience for the young athletes and games volunteers.

Campers are once again reminded that the May long weekend is liquor free in all campgrounds, group-use areas and yurts, as well as cabins at Camp Morton and Hecla/Grindstone provincial parks.

It is important to note that while the Government of Canada is celebrating Canada 150 with free entry to National Parks, a provincial park pass is still required when visiting provincial parks. Passes are available at park offices, online through Canada Map Sales at www.canadamapsales.com, and anywhere hunting and fishing licences are sold.
