Popoff Tree

Saskatchewan’s Largest Tree

In true Saskatchewanian fashion, Blaine Lake invites you to view something large, the largest tree in the province.

This tree has been growing for hundreds of years and is over 5 meters in its circumference. The tree stands nearly 21 metres (68 feet) high at present; the top of the tree was once sheared off by lighting. Saskatchewan’s largest tree is often associated with Samuel J. Popoff, who leased the crown land on which the tree is located.

The Popoff Tree is one of the few remaining giant cottonwoods, as most have fallen to the saw and the axe.

Doukhobor Dugout House

On Saturdays in July

Costumed guides tell a fascinating tale at the Doukhobor Dugout House National Historic Site southeast of Blaine Lake.

Exiled from their homeland, Russian Doukhobors settled in 1899, digging into the ravine for shelter. These tenacious settlers lived in the Dugout Houses until 1904, when log houses were built.

Visitors are asked to respect this delicate archaeological site on private property. Strenuous walking is involved in getting to the site. Tours include the Doukhobor dugout house, Ospennia Spring, the new Doukhobor barn, Banya, Tolstoy House, Museum of artifacts, Gift shop and Donna’s Doukhobor Prayer Home.

This attraction is only open on Saturdays in July.
