The Resort Village of Cochin has always been a popular getaway destination. Everything is possible here! Take your boat out to go after northern pike or walleye. Fire up the jet-ski and ride the waves. Cool off with a dip on a hot day. Canoe, kayak, swim, waterski, wakeboard or just sit back and enjoy the fantastic evening sunsets over the water. The lakes are also ideal for winter fun, with flat expanses for your snowmobile or ATV and skating on the ice. Try your hand at ice-fishing and take in the annual ice fishing derby in February. You could win a ton of great prizes.
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.
Our lakes have natural shoreline with many great sandy beaches and boat launches. Lehman Creek winds its way from Murray Lake to Jackfish Lake. As you meander down this gentle waterway, you'll go under 2 bridges, pass boat houses, docks, beautiful yards and natural marshland.
