Lake Waskesiu is located in central-north Saskatchewan Province (Indigenous People's word: Sas-skach-a-waan) right where the Great Plains (called Prairies in Canada, which is French for grasslands) merge with the rocky, forested, lake covered and mineral rich "shield formation" which covers half the nation. It is located in Prince Albert National Park, there are good photos of it on Google Images. A highly respected Canadian Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, hailed from this region and was leader of the country in the early 1960's.

From "A CHRONOLOGY OF APPEARANCES" on this website:
"1962 Waskesiu Lake  Waskesiu, SK
According to Joni, 'I started making music ...in Saskatchewan mostly up at northern lakes, up around Lake Waskesiu, ...it was just self-entertainment with the gang then.'"
