Get Ready – Reservations for Provincial Park Campsites Begin Next Week | News and media

Released April 11, 2022

Sask Parks reminds campers to prepare for 2022 camping reservations, which are due to begin April 18 for seasonal campsites and April 19-26 for overnight, Camp-Easy and group campsites.

“With reservations looming, now is a great time for campers to make sure they’ve created their account,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said. “This year we’ve added new features to the booking site, including campsite favourites, which will allow campers to create and save a list in their online account instead of writing down site numbers or ‘save photos to their phone. Campers have been asking for this feature and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it this season.’

Here’s a full list of what’s new this year:

  • Compare campsites – compare up to three sites online to help you choose the site that best suits your needs;
  • Favorite campsites – create a list of favorite sites that will be saved in your 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 printable temporary pass is available and valid for three weeks from purchase);
  • Improved maps – in response to requests from campers for better maps on the booking site last year, Geographic Information System maps were added to the site. Maps are based on geographic coordinates of campsites and amenities across the province;
  • Four new day-use lodges – available for reservation for dates beginning 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 beginning in July;
  • Six new Camp-Easy yurts – available in various provincial parks with upgraded queen beds; and
  • Camping with hammock at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park – the campground features a Weaver structure that can hold up to six hammocks.

We also remind campers to check out the many programs and special events planned at 21 parks for the 2022 season. Engaging and educational recreation programs include guided hikes, geocaching activities, canoe programs and more. New this summer, Sask Parks will offer Weekend Theme Days, which will include unique programming, special guests and hands-on experiences centered around each park’s weekly theme. Programming details are available at http://parks.saskatchewan.ca.
