Bookings for campsites within Saskatchewan provincial parks will remain available online throughout fall and winter to allow campers to extend the camping season, Parks Culture, and Sport Minister Laura Ross said in a statement.
“Demand for fall camping has continued to grow each year, which was especially evident last October after a record-breaking season,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said.
According to Ross’ statement in the press release, the move will assure campers that their site is reserved and ready upon arrival.
Select campsites in some provincial parks will be available for reservation online at a discounted rate with reduced services from October 1 to March 15.
Throughout this month, 13 provincial parks will offer select campsites for late-fall camping that can be reserved online.
Participating parks include Blackstrap, Buffalo Pound, Cypress Hills, Duck Mountain, Echo Valley, Good Spirit Lake, Greenwater Lake, Moose Mountain, Pike Lake, Rowan’s Ravine, Danielson, Douglas, and Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Parks.
