The Village of Elbow, Saskatchewan, Canada is situated halfway between Regina & Saskatoon on Highway 19, and right on Lake Diefenbaker. Elbow got its name from the bend in the South Saskatchewan River, which resembled a bent arm.

Come to Elbow and experience the unspoiled beauty of Lake Diefenbaker. Be it for a day trip, a week's vacation or maybe you are looking to re-locate... we're sure you'll enjoy our little Village. Miles of secluded beaches provide a wonderful afternoon's get-a-way, and the massive lake provides enough playground for every type of water enthusiast.



We've got water, and plenty of it, so why not spend your vacation relaxing on us!



Try your luck fishing Lake Diefenbaker - you never know when the next world record will be caught!



Come for a round of golf; 18 holes overlooking Lake Diefenbaker or try your hand at mini golf!
