Katepwa Point Provincial Park is located along Katepwa Lake in southern Saskatchewan, adjacent to the Resort Village and District of Katepwa. The park's primary feature is a large beach, which is complemented by a large lawn, boat launch and picnic facilities. It is among the smallest of Saskatchewan's provincial parks.
The park was established by the Canadian federal government in 1921 as Vidal Point Dominion Park. In 1930, the Government of Canada transferred the responsibility for Saskatchewan's natural resources to the province. As such, Vidal Point fell under the jurisdiction of the newly created Saskatchewan Parks Branch in 1931 and was renamed Katepwa Point Provincial Park. It was one of the six original provincial parks in Saskatchewan.
