Lac La Ronge is a large lake
located in north Central Saskatchewan. It is 36 miles in length and
has an area of 546 square miles. The array of scenery includes cliffs,
more than a thousand tree-covered islands, white-water rapids and
waterfalls, all typical of the Canadian Shield. The French place-name
is probably derived from ronger (“to gnaw”), in reference to the work of the
beaver, which inhabits the forested islands and shores.
