Tisdale is conveniently located within a short drive of many lakes and resorts. Lakes at Greenwater Provincial Park and Kipabiskau Regional Park, as well as several others, put Tisdale in the heart of lake country.

Marean Lake which is a short 35 minute drive to the southeast of Tisdale is a perfect place to golf, camp and take in some water sports. There are two resorts at this private lake: Marean Lake Resort and Marean Lake Valley Resort.

Tobin Lake, home of world class fishing, is 45 minutes north. With annual angling tournaments, it is a high traffic tourist destination.

Barrier Lake is also close to Tisdale. Two resorts are also at this lake, Barrier Lake Resort and Barrier Ford Resort. Again, great fishing and boating take place as well as campfires with friends.

Shady Vale Resort is located on 160 acres of the beautiful Barrier River Valley, about mid-way between the communities of Tisdale and Archerwill, highway 35 and is a very popular choice.
