The Government of Saskatchewan is encouraging campers to start planning for the 2018 camping season. On Monday, April 9, campers will be able to begin booking sites in their favourite provincial parks.
“Saskatchewan’s provincial parks offer outdoor fun and relaxation,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “These provincial treasures contribute to the enviable quality of life we enjoy, while preserving that same gift for future generations.”
SaskParks has been testing and fine-tuning the online Saskatchewan provincial park registration system, getting it ready for the rush of 2018 bookings. As has been the process for several years now, campsite reservations will be staggered. Starting Monday, April 9, registration launch will take place over 12 days. Go to www.saskparks.com to familiarize yourself with the process in advance of these dates.
