Excellent views from Trail. We explored the shoreline. Need to pay about $5.25 per car for admission to this Territorial Park. Able to also rent boats at this location if interested.

Only thirty kms from Yellowknife thus campground and recreational area is a wonderful place to immerse oneself into the exquisite scenery outside the city. It is not "wild", and offers boardwalks, easy trails, stunning views of teh gorgeous lakes, and a sense of "freedom" that seems to be the hallmark of this amazing territory.

This is a camping grounds that is beautiful, and has something for everyone. Great facilities and a nice place for camping as family/couples, or RVing as retired folks. Love the lake and views from the hillside campsites.

I guess this lake will look gorgeous in summer when the ice melts:) We were here (actually drove on the lake) in February and it's a great place to see aurora at night, if you are driving!!

Take the interpretative hike to see more of the rocks and lichen of the Canadian Shield. The only wildlife I spotted was a ptarmigan but it was easy to see why the region supports caribou when you see the large quantities of reindeer lichen. There are several places where you get elevation gain (rare in the relatively flat north) to... More

The trail at Prelude Lake is well marked and has many information panels along the way to explain flora, fauna, and geological formations. Very interesting with great views. The second half is especially scenic!

It's so far from everywhere that you might think it would be a chore to get here, but it's a beautiful drive along the Ingraham Trail, and this is (I think) the largest boat launch along that road, which has many other lakes and good stops.

We stayed at Prelude Lake with our trailer in early June for six days. The two hiking trails are beautiful, so glad I ended up doing the nature trail. Got some beautiful pictures from there. The park is laid out fairly well, it's nice to have the marina there if you want to boat or fish and the park attendant... More

I am a resident and hike there often. There is a well marked trail with fine viewpoints for those who wish to see Shield Country at its best. Watch out for bears in the spring and fall. Camping available, but reservations needed.
