Candle Lake is the name of a popular year round resort village less than an hour north east of Prince Albert. It was named by First Nations people who saw glowing lights at the northern end of the lake and thus believed the lake was haunted. Today it's believed that the lights come from the phosphorescent glow of decaying driftwood. The region's main economic driver is tourism.

The Torch Light Gardens have walking trails winding through 7 acres of boreal forest. The forest also provides the backdrop for the nine-hole Candle Lake Golf Course. A petting zoo exists at the southern end of the lake. The lake area is rich grounds for spotting wild animals as well. The main visitor activities center around the Lake, with swimming, boating, waterskiing, and fishing activities available. There's also a wheelchair accessible trout pond. With boreal forest, sand dunes with boardwalks, and around 30 km (18.6 mi.) of sandy beaches, there's always a lot to do in summertime at the lake. Sandy Bay and Minowukaw Beach campgrounds support overnight stays. At night, visitors can enjoy keeping a watch out for aurora borealis, or northern lights.
