Saskatchewan Parks (Canada) will be accepting reservations starting April 18 for seasonal campsites and April 19 to 26 for nightly, Camp-Easy, and group campsites.
According to a report, Parks, Culture, and Sport Minister Laura Ross said that as reservations are right around the corner, now is the best time for campers to ensure they’ve got their account set up.
“This year, we’ve added some new features on the reservation site, including campsite favorites, which will allow campers to create and save a list in their online account instead of writing site numbers down or saving photos on their phone. Campers have been asking for this feature, and we are excited to be able to offer it this season,” Ross added.
Here is the complete list of what’s new this year:
Campsite comparison – compare up to three sites online to assist in choosing a site;
Campsite favorites – create a list of favorite sites that will be saved in an online account;
Print-at-home entry – speed up the check-in process when you arrive at the park by printing your own daily or weekly entry permit at home. Annual entry permits purchased online will be mailed the next day (a temporary printable pass is available and valid for three weeks from purchase);
Upgraded maps – geographical information system maps have been added to the site in response to campers’ requests for better maps on the reservation site last year. Maps are based on geographical coordinates for campsites and amenities across the province;
Four new day-use pavilions – available to reserve for dates starting in July at Blackstrap, Buffalo Pound, Echo Valley, and Pike Lake Provincial Parks;
New Pine Hill campground at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park – can be reserved for dates starting in July;
Six new Camp-Easy yurts – available in various provincial parks with upgraded queen beds; and
Hammock camping at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park – campsite includes a Weaver structure that holds up to six hammocks.
For this year’s season, many special events and programs are scheduled within the 21 parks.
Recreational programs include guided hikes, geocaching activities, canoeing programs, and more.
This summer, Sask Parks will offer themed weekends that will feature programs, special guests, and interactive experiences designed around the theme for the week at every park.
