OUR PRIVATE DOCK
… for fishing or securing your boat during your stay.
There is a small clearing with a picnic table near our dock. This site is not suitable for launching any watercraft. There is a boat launch a Blackstrap Provincial Park.
A small charge may be payable at the gate entrance – often the gate is not manned and there is no fee.
If you use the Provincial Park Launch, your boat would have to be small enough to go under the causeway to get to the north side of the lake to the beach at Cedar Lodge, but the tunnel does allow for a fair sized craft.
Pontoons make it … just.
This picture above of our private dock is taken from the deck off the Great Room of Cedar Lodge,
… high above the lake.
SAILING ON BLACKSTRAP LAKE
Guests are welcome to set sail from our private dock if you have a small craft.
Please call ahead so that we can make the way clear for you to do so. Road from the Lodge to the beach is passable during most weather.
The Y camp, two doors down teach kayaking, canoeing and water craft safety throughout the summer.
The Navy League – next door – also has its own events and the Saskatoon Sailing Club is a short distance away.
Seen from our wraparound deck off the Great Room.
Enjoy the tranquil setting, as sailboats drift by, water skiers and fishing boats as well as pontoons frequent the waters on the weekend.
Here a mid summer afternoon.
The lake all to themselves.
If you wish to fish … Purchase a fishing license at the gas station in Dundurn or in your local area and bring with you. Fines can be hefty and watercraft and shoreline fishermen are monitored from time to time. Driver of your boat must have an up to date boating license.
Here the dock in the evening glow …

Walk through the fields or paths along the lake and through the ravines. There's lots to see!!
Although we currently do not provide maps for the trails in and around Cedar Lodge, in the summer of 2013 we will have outlines of trails that we have cleared through the ravines.
Otherwise, it is quite easy to find your way through the ravines.
Do take a walking stick from fallen branches to shoo off any wildlife that you do not wish to deal with, just to be on the safe side.
To date, no injuries have occurred.
… well known area for incredible sightings. Do bring your binoculars. Some available on site.
Remember ... THIS IS COUNTRY LIVING !!
Be prepared to have an adventure!!
Walking at your own risk! Cougars and bobcats seen in the area as well as coyotes. Recently, many moose.
