Activities include swimming, playing on the sandy beach, hiking, paddle boating, canoeing (when the boats are available), a stand up paddleboard, fishing (gear supplied), horseshoes, and more. Additionally, we are a 10 minute walk from Caliper Lake Provincial Park and the nearby town has a playground set and public beach, which is a 10 minute drive north from The Citadel. There is a charge for each additional person who comes with you, contact us for rates.
