The Town of Cut Knife is situated on Treaty Six territory and the Homeland of the Métis. We are approximately 50 kms west of The Battlefords on Highway 40/Poundmaker Trail, 70 kms east of the Alberta border, and just about 10 kms from Highway 21, the north/south connector to Highway 16/Trans Canada Highway.
The townsite is adjacent to Highway 40 and is reached by travelling south on a beautiful tree-lined drive that leads, first, to a landscaped boulevard, and then to the business district on Broad Street. The Town serves almost 600 residents, a farming community of approximately 400, and our neighbours on Little Pine First Nation, Lucky Man Cree Nation, Poundmaker Cree Nation, Sweetgrass First Nation, and the Hillsvale Hutterite Colony.
Of special interest to visitors to Cut Knife will be Tomahawk Park, home of the World’s Largest Tomahawk. The park is well treed with a small play area for children, a trout pond, and is right next door to the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum. Campsites are available on a first come, first served basis (electrified and non-electrified). Amenities include modern washrooms and showers, a dumping station, fire pits, water, and a picnic shelter.
