Leslie Beach Regional Park is one of Saskatchewan's best kept secrets! At the entrance to Leslie Beach Regional Park is a replica of a Northern Pike, PIKEZILLA. The fish was caught in February 2009 weighing in at 39.9 pounds, a record for a southern Saskatchewan lake.

Park Area & History
Fishing Lake was a popular destination since the 1930's, drawing visitors primarily from the surrounding rural areas. In the mid 1940' and early 1950's interest in developing the lake grew.
In 1952 the rural co-operative associations of the surrounding area established the Leslie Beach Recreational Co-operative Board. Many local volunteers worked hard in the development of Leslie Beach. In 1967 Fishing Lake Regional Park including Leslie Beach Regional Park was established. Since then the park has become a very popular summer and winter recreational destination for
many families near and far. In 1997 and again in 2007 Leslie Beach experienced devastation with the major flooding of Fishing Lake. As was in the past, a new generation of dedicated hard working volunteers and staff worked hard to restore Leslie Beach to its present state of, 165 cottage homes, 155 campsites and a wide range of recreational ammenities.
Leslie Beach has a total of 155 campsites, all with power and non-potable water. There are 101 seasonal sites that have either 30 amp or 50 amp power and sewer; and 3 seasonal and 46 daily sites that have 30 amp power. Campers Haven has 25 of these well-shaded daily sites. Across the way, the sunrises on 21 other sites located on Main Beach. These sites are designed for the camper who wants to be right at the water's edge. In the last few years 5 additional pull through sites have been built, each with a 50 amp power source, next to the playground/gazebo/hall and near the beach. This campsite is ideal for a group attending a family reunion, wedding or other special event.
So, no matter which campsite suits you best, sun or shade, we feel we can easily accommodate the seasonal and daily campers at our park and with the majority of our sites being larger we are confident that we can also accommodate the recreational vehicles of today. All areas have picnic tables and fire pits with grills. Potable water and bundles of wood are available for sale at the Park Office. Trash and recyclable bins are located throughout the campsites and park areas. Modern toilet facilities are on site with coin operated showers, flush toilets and sinks. A sewage dump station is located in the park.
Group camping site areas are available through reservations only on a first call first serve basis. Each site has either 30 amp or 50 amp electrical service and non potable water.
Leslie Beach Regional Park is truly one of the Saskatchewan hidden jewels and offers one of the best sand beaches in the province! Filled with wonderfully even sand, the lake's waters are clear and clean! It's become a very popular place to relax in the summer. A large buoyed swimming area demarcates the safe zone from water crafts and skiers. Washrooms and showers are located on main beach. The park offers Red Cross swimming lessons yearly in the first part of August. For more information or to register call the park office at 1-306-272-3968.
The Violet Park Playground is centrally located between the hall, gazebo and Main Beach. Through the generous donation from the Markusson family, in memory of their mother, and with the financial partnering of the village and park the new play center was constructed. Violet Park provides hours of fun for hundreds of children year round.
Boating & Fishing
Leslie Beach Regional Park has two cement boat launch pads separated by a dock. A fish filleting facility is located near the boat launch. Many refer to it as one of the best in the province.
In this area we also offer designated areas for parking vehicles, trailers and boats when out on the lake. Since the floods at Fishing Lake, record size Northern Pike have been caught in the summer and winter. Most catch their daily limits of Walleye and Jack fish and an occasional Perch on the lake, thus giving us the reputation of a fisherman's paradise.
