Sask Parks Introduces Yurt in Great Blue Heron Provincial Park

Nature meets comfort in a brand new, Mongolian-style yurt located at Anglin Lake in Great Blue Heron Provincial Park.

“We are excited to offer this unique accommodation in our park,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “The yurt is a great opportunity for guests to experience beautiful Anglin Lake in comfort and style with minimal packing and preparation required.  Visitors can enjoy the best of both worlds, taking in the lush forests, calm lakes and wildlife in the park while sleeping in a cozy bed in a sheltered area.”

The yurt comes equipped with many essentials so guests can relax and recharge without having to set up a tent or trailer.  The yurt sits on a large deck and is furnished with a queen-sized bed and two double-sized futons.  Also inside the yurt is a table with chairs, small fridge, electrical outlet, electric heater and battery-powered lamps.  Washrooms, showers and potable water taps are located nearby.

The yurt is ideal for anyone looking for a unique adventure, or for those who may not have much outdoor experience but are interested in a getaway beyond the city limits.

Visitors can immerse themselves in nature, while staying warm, sheltered and comfortable at the same time.  Guests will need to bring sleeping blankets and pillows, cooking equipment, dishes and utensils, camp stove and campfire chairs.

Reservations are open now and can be made by calling 306-982-4741.  The yurt is $95 per night.
