Peck Lake ( French: lac Peck), a lake in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, is located in the Bronson Forest Provincial Recreation Site in the Rural Municipality of Loon Lake No. 561, 27.0 km (16.8 mi) east of the Alberta border.
Known for its bright turquoise-coloured water, unlike most other lakes in the region, Peck Lake is a popular spot for beachgoers, fishermen, and boaters, alike. According to Saskatchewan Fish Management, Peck Lake reaches a depth of 46 ft (14 m). Water flows southward across the lake, entering Peck Lake from Galletly Lake and exiting into Halfmoon (Spirit) Lake. The southeast shore of the lake is subdivided into 50 lots, 45 of which have a permanent structure.
Peck Lake has one government-run campground, split into two sections: the beachfront campsites and the "overflow" forested campsites. Facilities include washrooms, a picnic shelter, fish-filleting table, sewage dump, and a swingset. The beachfront campground is situated directly next to the boat launch, providing easy access for launching watercraft. Each campsite has a picnic table, firepit, electrical plug, and free access to drinking water and firewood.
