Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is located in southern Saskatchewan about 30 km northeast of the city of Moose Jaw and 86 km northwest of the city of Regina. The park surrounds Buffalo Pound Lake, formed from glaciers approximately 10,000 years ago. Previously used by First Nations to corral bison, the park now maintains a captive herd - as you race, you may catch sight of them in the paddock hidden in the rolling hills.
From Regina: Head west of Highway 1 towards Moose Jaw for approximately 60km, then follow SK 301-N for approximately 20km. Turn right onto highway 202 E and you will reach the park entrance and visitor centre.
From Moose Jaw: Take SK-2 N, then turn right onto SK-202 E to bring you to the park entrance.
From Saskatoon: SK-11 S towards Regina for 165km. In Chamberlain, turn right onto SK-2 S for 40km, then turn left onto SK-202 E for 10km until reaching the park entrance.
Permits required: all vehicles entering park will be charged $10/day, so we recommend you carpool!
