The Town of Porcupine Plain is located on Highway 23, in the Northeast Parkland adjacent to Greenwater Lake Provincial Park. Rich agricultural land, rolling hills, mixed forest, and numerous lakes make this one of the most beautiful areas in the Province!
Nestled within the Porcupine Provincial Forest, and just a short drive from Greenwater Lake Provincial Park, the Town of Porcupine Plain is a nature lover’s dream! While Porcupine Plain’s main industry is agriculture, the Town is also a four-season tourism destination. The Town offers ample opportunity to get outside and explore nature – enjoy a scenic hike or lounge on the beach at nearby Greenwater Lake; relish quality time with family and friends while quadding, fishing, and ice fishing; or take in the beautiful landscape while cross-country skiing. The area also boasts some of the best moose, elk, and whitetail deer hunting found anywhere! The local snowmobile club grooms over 100 miles of pristine snowmobile trails, which connect to the groomed trails of Hudson Bay, Kelvington, Lintlaw, and Greenwater Lake Provincial Park, for an unforgettable snowmobiling experience.
Porcupine Plain is truly Nature’s Gift!

The Marvin Powlowski Memorial Sled Dog Race was a huge success, despite low snow cover. Carl and George Knudsen spent hours grooming the trails in preparation for the weekend event. Teams came from Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Minnesota. A number of volunteers showed up to man road crossings, serve hot dogs, and help at the starting line.
A beautiful supper was provided to the teams and supporters, all cooked by Evelyn Powlowski. Stories were told and memories shared by Ed Jenkins, who was also the announcer at the race site.
