Welcome to Maligne Lake

Tourists have been exploring and marvelling at Maligne Lake for quite a while now... 

The Stoney Indians of the Kooteney Plains in the Saskatchewan River Valley knew of the legendary lake that was to be known as Maligne Lake for hundreds of years. The first "white" person to see it was Henry Macleod in 1875.

It would not be visited by white people again until the summer of 1908 when a remarkable woman, Mary Schaffer visit, explored and, in 1911 wrote about the lake into the public learned of this unique piece of Canada
