Redberry Lake is a lake near Hafford, Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a medium sized saline lake within an area characterized by mostly freshwater aquatic environments. The lake makes up the core protected area of the Redberry Lake (UNESCO) Biosphere Reserve, and is a federal bird sanctuary of the same name. A small regional park is situated at the north west corner of the lake. The countryside surrounding Redberry Lake is typical of the aspen parkland biome of which it is a part.
The regional park offers camping, golfing, swimming, hiking, boating and many bird watching opportunities. Although there are no sport fish in the lake itself, the park has installed a small earthen dam on a creek which flows into the lake, creating a freshwater trout pond.
