If you haven't been to Musreau Lake Recreation Area in a while there have been some changes to it done in 2010. A new group camping area has been built and the boat launch has been moved to a second day use area (the old group use) to reduce congestion at the beach. Power vessels are now prohibited in the beach area. There are no services at the campsites.

The name Musreau is of aboriginal origin and one of the meanings of Musreau is, "something noisy or devil-like." The Cree were the first to hear loud noises coming from the lake during the winter. Pockets of gas formed near the bottom of the lake and eventually rose to the surface creating enough pressure to crack the ice. As early as 1915, it was the name that was recorded on government maps. The other meaning of Musreau is said to be a Cree word for a young moose. Moose River is located nearby.

There are some general rules of the park that must be obeyed including Off Highway Vehicles prohibited in the park. VIEW INFO

Not very many people can catch a fish at Musreau Lake. The lake has a rare minnow that seem to be thriving in the lake but they are quite small. Even though the lake has not been stocked for a number of years, the park attendant (of a few years ago) claims the rainbow trout, bull trout and burbot are starting to make a slight come back. (Some have challenged that this is incorrect) On hot summer days, they stay close to the bottom of the lake, which is reported to be at least 55 feet deep in some places.

Musreau Lake is a spring fed lake that provides a quiet and relaxing environment.
