Atton’s Lake Regional Park, in Saskatchewan (Canada), lies 15.4 miles (9.6 km) east of Cut Knife on Highway 40, then 15.4 miles (9.6 km) north. The park features a spring-fed, clear water lake with sandy beaches, with camping, picnic and playground facilities near the water. A visitor’s fee is required for entry, and the park is open from May 15 to September 30. Reasonably dark skies around Bortle class 3 are found around Atton’s Lake, and a stargazer told EarthSky that the park has “lots of areas to watch the night sky with no interference from artificial lights.”
