The Nisbet Provincial Forest is a provincially protected mixed-wood forest surrounded by Aspen parkland in Central Saskatchewan, Canada. It consists of a north block north of the city of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, and a south block between Duck Lake, Saskatchewan, and MacDowall, Saskatchewan. The forest drew Métis and white settlers to the area during the 1860s to 1880s and was an important source of building materials and fuel in this period. Today it is a provincially protected area although cattle grazing and recreational use including cross country skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, and hunting in the area are permitted.
