Ness Creek Site
Many visitors to Saskatchewan find their way to the Prince Albert National Park. Although most people are more familiar with the East Side of the Park, increasing numbers of visitors are now heading to the Wild West Side. This less-developed side includes a wild Plains bison herd, lakes that have retained their pristine qualities, and a relatively untouched slice of boreal forest.
A hub of activity on the West Side, the Ness Creek Site, is home to a variety of cultural and artistic activities, as well as 40 km of trails and all-season cabins, offering visitors to the area opportunities for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing.
A well established event at the site, the Ness Creek Music Festival, held every third weekend in July, includes an eclectic range of music and culture with a strong ecological focus. Northern Lights Bluegrass & Old Tyme Music Festival, held every third weekend in August, also makes Ness Creek home. A music camp, held the week prior to the Festival, provides wonderful learning oportunities for all ages and skill levels. And the new kid on the block – Country at the Creek – held its first Festival at the site last June.
The Ness Creek Site is available for private rentals including weddings, reunions and retreats. For more information on accommodations, facilities, and rentals contact Gord Olson at 306-227-9453 or visit their website at www.discovernesscreek.com.
