Next time you're looking at a map of Saskatchewan, check out the geography around Big River. You'll quickly see a big part of the appeal of this area—lakes. Whether you prefer to be found on the lake boating, on the shore fishing or circling those crystalline waters on an ATV, these lakes make your summers memorable.

For the ATVers, there is no lack of trails in this region—and some of them lead to lakes accessible only by ATV or sled. Don't forget to include a fishing rod with your gear for when stomachs start growling. Trout, walleye and pickerel can all be fished from these waters.

For a small community, Big River has a jam-packed schedule of events and activities throughout the year; contact the town office to find out more about its exciting offerings.
