“Saskatchewan’s provincial parks continue to be extremely popular destinations, as shown by the nearly 4.0 million visits recorded in 2015,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Mark Docherty said.  “We are looking forward to starting another busy and exciting year with campsite reservation launch in April.”

Saskatchewan Parks has had a staggered booking (A suggestion made by campers, to reduce the demands placed on the booking system) which also includes a queuing system to allow SaskParks to manage how many people are accessing the reservation system at one given time. The queuing system will open at 6:40 a.m. each morning and you will be assigned a random number. Reservations open at 7:00 a.m. CST each day.

This year, online reservations will be available at some parks past the Labour Day long weekend.

Plan ahead by creating a user account (if you don't already have one), reading their FAQ, checking out the fees, and looking through the campsites to plan for your next outing.

Since 2007-08, the Government of Saskatchewan has invested nearly $92 million in upgrades and improvements to provincial park infrastructure.  Projects undertaken include the development of two new campgrounds, upgrading or replacement of service centres, extensive campsite electrical expansion and upgrading, water and wastewater system upgrades, new and enhanced boat launches, and new campsite furnishings.
