Canada's industry-leading Saskatchewan backcountry maps
Backroad Mapbooks’ Saskatchewan backcountry map book spans the entirety of this western province. Known for its prairies and farmland sprawling as far as the eye can see, and for the city centres of Saskatoon and Regina, the province of Saskatchewan is a gem nestled in the heart of western Canada.
With a big, blue sky that hangs above the prairies, Saskatchewan vibrates in its stillness. It is the sunniest province in Canada, and while populations gather in Saskatoon, Regina, Lloydminster and other smaller cities, up north the wilderness takes over as the prairies give way to the rugged Canadian Shield.
Your Saskatchewan map book details every natural sight in and around Saskatoon, Regina and beyond. Travel the Alberta-Saskatchewan border and visit the highest point between the Rockies and Labrador, in Cypress Hills with its lodgepole pine forests; see the shifting sands of the Great Sand Hills; or glimpse infinity as you travel the flat ribbon of Trans-Canada Highway from east to west.
With 22% of Canada’s roads concentrated in Saskatchewan, this map book is rich with opportunities for urban and backcountry exploration. With detailed information on freshwater fishing, water-based recreation, wildlife viewing, national and provincial parks, hiking and biking trails, and much, much more, your Saskatchewan backcountry map book shows you the prairies like you’ve never seen them before.

More than just farm and flatlands, the lands outside of Saskatoon and Regina boast diverse and interesting land formations, like the Great Sand Hills of the south and the Athabasca Sand Dunes up north, which are only accessible by boat or air.
Despite being dry and landlocked, Saskatchewan boasts some notable fishing hot spots. Our detailed fishing section gives you the rundown on the numerous fishing lakes and streams throughout Saskatchewan.

Outside Saskatchewan’s cities of Saskatoon, Regina, and Lloydminster lies a world of untamed backcountry where 72 wild mammal species roam. Saskatchewan is known for its world-class white-tailed deer hunting, plus numerous other hunting species that inhabit the province. Your Saskatchewan map book lists them all, with a breakdown of Saskatchewan’s Wildlife Management Zones plus a Wildlife Management Zones map!
North of Saskatoon and past Prince Albert, Saskatchewan becomes a paddler’s paradise with lakes and rivers dominating the region. Throughout the northern backcountry, paddling is not only possible, but necessary, as roads peter out completely. Your Saskatchewan map book lists the province’s exciting paddling hot spots, including the great Qu’Appelle River and the North Saskatchewan River.
One of the easiest ways to tap into the bounty of Saskatchewan is to hit up one of the many regional and provincial parks. A plethora of gorgeous parks invite the public in, from the Athabasca Sand Dunes Provincial Park to the Melville Regional Park. Saskatchewan is home to two national parks: Prince Albert and Grasslands National Park. The Saskatchewan backcountry map book lists it all for you!
From green urban trails in Regina and Saskatoon, to hardcore multi-day hikes, Saskatchewan boasts a surprising number of hiking trails.

From the highest point between Labrador and the Rockies, found in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, to multi-day hikes in Prince Albert National Park and Meadow Lake Provincial Park, you’ll never run out of trails to explore in Saskatchewan.
With so much backcountry to explore far beyond the bounds of Regina and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is an ATV rider’s dream. Our Saskatchewan map book shows you the fine riding areas of the north, including the snowmobile trails (used by ATVers in warmer months) on Crown land, and hot spots like Narrow Hills Provincial Park, Nisbett Forest, Moose Mountain Provincial Park and the Trans-Canada Adventure Trail.
Saskatchewan residents use snowmobiles for transportation as much as for recreation. The comprehensive snowmobile section of your Saskatchewan backcountry map book lists the snowy trail hot spots, from organized trails to unplowed grid roads, and rides along lakes and rivers. Thanks to the Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association, the province boasts an impressive trail system – and we map it out for you!
