Wanless is located approximately 50 kilometres north of The Pas. With a population of approximately 200 people, its primary industry is logging and tourism. Located on nearby Rocky Lake (54.11N 101.21W) several cottages and year round homes have been established for those who appreciate the great outdoors. The supply of northern pike, walleye and small mouth bass bring several hundred tourists to our wonderful community. Wanless has an active community club, which hosts a mini-winter carnival held in March, and a pike derby held in August. These are only a few of the many ways the community shows off their talents.
The Pas and Area A rodeo in June, Opasquia Indian Days in August, and Halcrow Lake Golf and Country Club, a nine-hole golf course with walk on bookings! The Sam Waller Museum is a northern highlight, as well as the Native Boutiques in town. The mighty Saskatchewan River has a history all its own, being a major fur-trading route in the late 1700's, just ask Henry Kelsey. The Aseneskak Casino is the the biggest little casino in the north, well worth checking out.
