Eastend is home to around 576 people living in southwest Saskatchewan around 80 km (49.7 mi.) from the Montana border and 100 km (62.1 mi.) from the Alberta border.

Eastend is in the heart of Saskatchewan paleontology country. The most famous find to date was in 1994, a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton that has been named "Scotty" and is on display to the public at the T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend. The Centre features a Research Laboratory, theatre, education area, and a main display area displaying real fossils alongside hands on activities. Eastend is also known as the boyhood home town of the Pulitzer Prize winning writer Wallace Stegner. His former home still stands, and today is a residence for writers and artists. As well, the town holds an annual Stegner Dinner which often commemorates his era of the early 1920's.

Eastend also holds Dino Days, an annual summer festival filled with many activities including a rodeo, parade, and ball tournament. The countryside around Eastman is the site of Cretaceous deposits in the Frenchman River valley and tertiary deposits near the Cypress Hills, providing rich fossil hunting grounds for the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
