Alberta Parks has extended the camping season at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park southeast of Medicine Hat, Saskatoon Island Provincial Park west of Grande Prairie and Cold Lake Provincial Park through October 31st. As part of a pilot program (which also saw Crimson Lake Provincial Park campground, northwest of Rocky Mountain House, open two weeks earlier on April 15th) the outcome could also lead to extending the camping season for other parks in 2017.
Reservations on Reserve Alberta Parks are up by nearly 10 per cent to date with more than 155,000 bookings processed this past summer. This is the seventh year in a row where reservations have grown from the previous year.
Don't forget to start planning for Winter Camping at Alberta Parks as well.
