Atton's Lake - A Summer Meeting Place
Clayton McLain Memorial Museum
Cut Knife , Saskatchewan


   Atton’s Lake in west
central Saskatchewan has been
a special summer place for
more than 100 years, ever
since a group of three small
lakes in west central
Saskatchewan began to attract
people looking for leisure
and recreation. Soon, Atton’s
Lake emerged as the most

appealing vacation
destination, a ‘jewel on the
prairies’ where generation
after generation gathers.
   What makes Atton's Lake
remarkable is chronicled in
this Community Memories
exhibit. One hundred years of
newspaper articles, photos
and memories explain why

surrounding communities have
embraced this small prairie
lake as their special place.
Those communities with the
assistance of the Atton
family, the Rural
Municipality of Cut Knife,
the Elks BPO #380 and
countless volunteers have
built the lake into a

memorable recreational area.
   Visitors to this exhibit
will discover how Atton’s
Lake developed an atmosphere
and a lake culture that have
become a family tradition.
