I went to Candle Lake for a day this past long weekend. The location was very quiet. There was a fire ban so nobody could have a fire. The water was cold but that is expected this early in the year. Overall a fun afternoon.

Visited Candle Lake, the weekend before the May Long Weekend. Hit the sweet spot, between slush and mosquitos. Candle Lake was very quiet, a lot of facilities were closed, including the Campground and the Mini-Golf (and more important, the Ice Cream Shop at the Mini-golf)....More

Very nice campground. Lost a lot of trees in the past few years, but the park is clean and well maintained. Showers are good and beach area very nice. There is also a group camping area.

It's on the far eastern side of the lake. As far as I know, it's not accessible by road, you can only get there by boating across the lake

I am not sure about boat rentals but try contacting Sask Tourism directly. They are super helpful with any questions. I believe that Sandy Bay Campground is the closest to the golf course. It's about 10-15 minute drive.
