Found nestled in the Barrier Valley, Kipabiskau Lake, commonly referred to as “Kip,” is a sanctuary for both wildlife and visitors. The lake can be found 252 km east of Saskatoon. With 611 permanent residents, this lake strikes a balance between private lake life and a bustling community. With home prices at an affordable $49,500, living at Kipabiskau, even just seasonally, is a steal.
The lake has several amenities to make life comfortable, including a campground, boat launch, and gas station. Kipabiskau Lake also features grocery, restaurants, and retail stores to take care of daily needs. Lake activities include boating, water-skiing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, with rentals available. Other entertainment options are golfing and paintball in the summer and ice fishing and snowmobiling gaining popularity in the winter. A large portion of the park’s land is left in its natural wooded state, making it a shelter for local wildlife.
