The Resort Village of Cochin is a friendly community located 36 kilometres north of the Battlefords on Highway 4 North.  It is nestled between two beautiful prairie lakes, Murray Lake and Jackfish Lake.  This location makes Cochin a great vacation spot as well as a fantastic place to live. Residents and visitors can enjoy the sun on the beach, take a refreshing swim in the lake, play tennis or beach volleyball, visit the playgrounds, fish, waterski, wakeboard or tube behind a boat, or take in a round of golf at one of the great golf courses nearby.  Visit one of the local campgrounds, rent a cottage, stay at a local bed and breakfast, or reserve your stay at Jackfish Lodge located within the Battlefords Provincial Park. We have the most spectacular sunsets in the world!

The population of the village grows to about 2500 during the summer months although more residents are living here year round due to the easy commute to North Battleford, Battleford, , Saskatoon, Meadow Lake and Lloydminster.  The resort village is just a short commute of 20 minutes to the Battlefords, 1.5 hours to Saskatoon, and 4 hours to Edmonton.

A LIGHTHOUSE in Saskatchewan!!  The only lighthouse in Saskatchewan is at the north end of the village of Cochin.  It was built in 1988 on the top of Pirot Hill. From here visitors have a spectacular view of both Jackfish and Murray Lakes. The lighthouse is 11.5 meters tall (38 ft). There are 153 steps to the top for a fabulous view of both the townsite and the lakes. The rotating beacon (light) can be seen for miles.
