We rented a cabin down by the prelude lake park and it was one of the best decisions that we made in our life. Northern lights could be seen from this park no problem.

Another well marked hiking trail with lots of informative plaqes. It is an easy hike and can be done in about an hour. Good places to stop and rest and good views. Wear bug spray

Had to do some work in Yellowknife but a new friend offered to take me out to his cabin for a fish-fry. I was so happy I did, besides their supreme hospitality the area is amazing! Beautiful views and lots of clean water to see!

The trail was well marked. A geologist gave a free guided tour explaining the rock formation of the Canadian Shield.

I have visited Prelude Lake a number of times. Usually it has been with friends to rent a boat, cruise around and do some fishing. Each time it has been a wonderful way to spend a day.

Nice hiking trails around here. The water is cool, but makes for a refreshing swim on a warm day. Well worth the visit.

The nature trail covers a variety of terrain, with beautiful views of the surrounding lakes. Plan about an hour for the 3K. The placards are very informative, especially for kids
