Located at the southeastern end of man-made Lake of the Prairies, Asessippi Provincial Park includes facilities for camping, trails for hiking and snowmobiling, boating, swimming and water-sports on the lake, and some of the best walleye fishing in the province.

Nearby attractions include Shellmouth Dam which was built in 1968 to control flooding along the Assiniboine River. The dam measures 21 m (69 feet) in height and 1,218  m (3/4 mile) in length. Lake of the Prairies, which resulted from the construction of the dam, is 67 km (42 miles) long, and straddles the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border. The first 6 km (4 miles) of the lake is Asessippi Provincial Park’s central feature.

A commemorative plaque and interpretive signage mark the spot of the original Asessippi townsite, now a ghost town.

Also popular is the Ancient Valley Interpretive Trail. Steep valley walls along the Assiniboine and Shell Rivers provide breathtaking panoramas for those venturing along the park’s trail system.

Asessippi Ski Area & Resort provides facilities  for skiing, snowboarding and tubing enthusiasts.

Both the Assiniboine and Shell Rivers provide for good canoeing, and rentals are available at Lake of the Prairies. The steeply contoured land around the lake, featuring many hills and valleys, provides a picturesque route for cyclists.

A number of campgrounds surround the lake, making it possible to take a leisurely tour around the lake with several overnight stops. Facilities also include horseshoe pits, ball diamonds, children’s playgrounds, and group camping facilities.

Lake of the Prairies has recorded an annual walleye catch per square kilometre that is five times greater than the provincial average. Due to the tremendous resources required to keep Lake of the Prairies well-stocked and to preserve the high quality of the fishery, a slot limit on catches has been enacted.

The 4-square-kilometre (1.5 square mile) Kettle Stones Provincial Park, on the north side of the Kettle Hills of Swan-Pelican Provincial Forest, features sandstone formations known locally as kettle stones (see image on next page).
