We Need You!!!!

Last year, the Gull Lake Tourism Committee opened the Gull Lake Visitor Centre and introduced the Prairie Handmade Gift Shop. We also began updating signage along the #1 Highway sign corridor and renovating the campground's restrooms. But there is still more to be done to expand and promote tourism possibilities in Gull Lake. This year, we expanded the group by adding the town's Economic Development Officer Lindsay Aliban, and two new members, Emella Waiser and Paige Farr. There are two more positions available; new members bring fresh perspectives; if you are interested in contributing to the growth of Gull Lake's tourism and visitor economy, we are eager to have you join us.

For additional information about the committee or to join, contact Blake at 306-672-7499. We'd like to have you join our team!

Tourism is Big in Southwest Saskatchewan

In 2019, 1.44 million Canadians travelled to Southwest Saskatchewan. Visitors to the region spent an estimated 208 million dollars in 2019, staying an average of 2.3 nights. Overnight tourists spent an average of $229.00, whereas day visitors spent $93.00. Their top three expenses were hotel, food and beverages, and vehicle fuel and maintenance. The Regional Profile identified sightseeing as the most common visitor activity, followed by visits to national or provincial parks, camping, and historic sites.

The most common visitor activity was sightseeing. Gull Lake is located in the centre of Southwest Saskatchewan, which is simply too large to tour in one day. Gull Lake's location makes it an ideal site to stay for those planning day trips in Southwest Saskatchewan.

Every day, thousands of potential visitors pass through or near our town. We only need to offer them a reason to stop and spend some time in Gull Lake.
