If your idea of an RV holiday involves serious relaxation, consider a trip to Fort Qu'Appelle. The beauty of the outdoors meets with a selection of activities that fit the RV lifestyle perfectly.

1.) Echo Valley Provincial Park

No visit to this area would be complete without a day spent at Echo Valley Provincial Park. You can choose between two beaches (and two crystal-clear lakes - Echo and Pasqua), and take part in boating, swimming, cycling, hiking and other outdoor recreation. Birdwatchers will be excited to see the vast variety of feathered guests who make their homes here. Fishing for pike, walleye and perch is also a popular activity.

2.) Ravine Adventures

Located in the nearby community of Abernethy, Ravine Adventures is a company that offers several enticing outdoor options. Go on nature walks to get familiar with the local environment, or get inside a giant plastic bubble (picture a large hamster ball) to bounce around with your friends. In addition, guests can have a blast with minigolf, pedal go-karts, paintball and all sorts of other challenging games. 

3.) Valley View Guest Ranch

At Valley View Guest Ranch, you can take hay rides, trail rides and tours all year round. The ranch is situated 10 kilometres north of Indian Head, on Highway 56 - right on the edge of the picturesque Qu'Appelle Valley. Katepwa Lake is only a 10-minute drive away, and makes for a wonderful side trip before or after your ranch visit.
