Clearwater Lake Provincial Park
Get to know Clearwater Lake Provincial Park: champion of this year's Park Madness competition! Located 20 km north of The Pas, Clearwater Lake Provincial Park is best known for its lake of the same name, which takes up a beefy half of the park. This deep (clear to the bottom at 11 m), spring fed lake boasts stunning quality and provides ideal conditions for lake trout to flourish. The lake is so successful for lake trout that eggs are collected for Manitoba fish hatcheries, allowing for a higher hatch rate than what would normally found in nature. Afterward, a portion of trout return home to Clearwater Lake. While an obvious hot spot for anglers, Clearwater Lake is also popular for camping, kayaking, SUPing, boating, and in general, spending a blissful day on the water. Accessible via a self-guided trail is one of nature’s great achievements – the caves – made up of giant chunks of rock broken off from the dolomite cliffs. We could stare at those crystal clear waters all day.
