Wildcat Hill Provincial Park is a wilderness park in northeastern Saskatchewan approximately 40km from Hudson Bay. It is located amongst the Pasqua Hills, south of Highway 55, and west of Highway 9. The 21,752-hectare park was established as a protected area in 1971, and became a Provincial Park in 1992.[1]

The main attractions of Wildcat Hill Provincial Park are hunting and snowmobiling.[2] The snowmobile trails in the park are part of a 684.14km-network of trails maintained by the Hudson Bay Trail Riders. In addition to the groomed trails, there are also many kilometres of unmaintained trails.

Moose, white-tailed deer, wolves, american black bear, coyotes and cougar are commonly found inside the park.[3] In addition to hunting, fishing can be done in the park at Bankside Lake, Firhead Lake, the Fir River and the Pasquia River.
