Saskatchewan’s provincial parks will start accepting reservations for its seasonal campsite on April 12 and between April 14 and 23 for nightly and group campsites.
“With the recent cold snap across the province, many folks are anticipating summer and this year’s camping season,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said.

“Our provincial parks provide many options for safe and local summer vacations, with so much to see and do. Sask Parks staff are looking forward to welcoming visitors and their families back to the parks for another memorable year.”
Sask Parks launched a new system in early 2020 to enhance the online reservation experience led by Aspira, a company with more than 30 years of experience providing reservation platforms for government parks across North America.
The province says customers should plan to create a new account once the site is available in April prior to reservations opening.
