Castle Butte Badlands Landscape Saskatchewan Canada

A landmark used for navigation over a century ago, Castle Butte is situated in the Big Muddy Badlands of Saskatchewan, Canada and is a prominent feature of the landscape.



Towering to around 61 metres (200 feet) above the ancient river valley and set in the landscape of the Big Muddy Badlands, Castle Butte is a relic from the last ice age.

As a prominent feature in the otherwise flat prairie lands of Saskatchewan, Castle Butte was once used as a landmark for Northwest Mounted Police patrols, Indians, early settlers and outlaws travelling through the area.

The area also provided a refuge and hiding place for outlaws on the run from the authorities.
