Candle Lake Provincial Park


This park will open for reservations on Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 7:00 am CST. For more information on the campsite reservation program, click here.

The Sandy Bay campground has more than 140 campsites and is located just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach.  A Service Centre with showers and laundry facilities is available. The Minowukaw Beach campground has more than 100 campsites and is located in the jack pine and aspen forest on the east side of the lake. It has its own Service Centre with showers. This area also features the Minowukaw Sand Dunes, a fragile ecosystem that is the product of thousands of years of wind and water erosion. 

To ensure a fair opportunity for more visitors to enjoy a provincial park camping experience, some campsites have been designated as ‘Maximum 14-Consecutive Night Stay’ campsites from June 24 to the September long weekend.  Back-to-back bookings by members of the same household in the same maximum stay campsite are not permitted; you are welcome to extend your stay in a different campsite at the end of 14 nights. There are also unlimited stay campsites available on the reservation system for extended stays.

Helpful Hint: When using either version of the online reservation system and you are staying less than 14 nights, ‘include’ maximum stay campsites in your search preferences.  If you are planning a camping stay for more than 14 nights, ‘exclude’ maximum stay campsites from your search preferences.
