CHITEK LAKE June 6, 2020 Caching Community Celebration
Chitek Lake in the near North about 2 hours from Saskatoon offers hundreds of caches and interesting areas to explore. Join us for a celebration of caching by meeting us in the campground on Sat., June 6, 2020 from 4pm- 7 pm for a time to share caching adventures, enjoy a game or two and a potluck BBQ. We supply the burgers and hot dogs and hope you can bring along a side or dessert.
The two pilots will have two campsites at Chitek Lake Recreation Site, now run by the resort village – one for our cache mobile and another covered with a gazebo so we can gather rain or shine. The coordinates take you to the registration centre. We will add our 2 camping spots once we can confirm them. See the URL for the resort village of Chitek Lake for photos and fees. Individual sites can be booked after April 2, 2020. See https://www.rvchiteklake.com/camping-fees. This is a wonderful little campsite with hundreds of nearby caches.
The main campground has mostly electrified sites as well as modern showers and washrooms plus a playground. Public parking is available at Pelican Beach. If you prefer not to camp, there are two nearby reasonably priced resorts; Little Pine Lodge and Chamakese Resort
Besides caching, what else can you do? Swim, Fish, Bike, Quad, Hike, Explore, Photography and more. Check out Chitek Lake Underwater Cache (GC604FQ) , a 5-5 and do a search. You will be astounded to discover over 500 nearby caches! Thanks to the community hiders; bennykidd, iney and bozdech plus others for their wonderful hides.
We plan to be at Chitek Lake the entire weekend so besides the event there will be other informal times to meet up and explore.
