Yes, the Gem Lakes — the Google search keyword that drives about 20% of this website's total traffic. But the only story I've written about the Gem Lakes so far is this one, four years ago.
Since then, I've had dozens of camping trips under my belt and have come to the conclusion that the Gem Lakes are an oddity — I'm not saying there isn't an abundance of deep blue lakes throughout northern Saskatchewan, but I have yet to discover anything quite like the Gems.
Jade Lake, Opal Lake, Diamond Lake and Sapphire Lake are all connected by trails within short walking distance of eachother. They are all stocked with different species of trout, and there are three backcountry campsites for public use. They are small lakes, but clear and secluded. They are almost too perfect, so let's find a reason to harp on them, why not?
