Saskatchewan Provincial Parks Ready for a Busy Summer

Released on May 11, 2015

Saskatchewan Provincial Parks will open for the season on Thursday, May 14, 2015.

Saskatchewan’s provincial parks continue to grow in popularity, and after a record-setting campsite reservation launch, SaskParks is expecting another busy season.

“Saskatchewan’s provincial parks are places to relax, unwind and reconnect with family, friends and nature,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Mark Docherty said.  “Our parks are very popular and we know that our campers are itching to get out and enjoy this beautiful spring weather.”

Saskatchewan Provincial Parks officially open for the season on the May long weekend.  As in past years, an alcohol ban will once again be in place from Thursday, May 14 to Monday, May 18 inclusive.  This alcohol ban affects all campgrounds and picnic areas within provincial parks and recreation sites.  The ban is also in effect for several regional parks.  Cottages and commercial businesses in provincial parks are not affected by the ban.

Funding for capital projects and upgrades in provincial parks will total $14.6 million in 2015-16.  This funding meets the government’s commitment to invest an additional $10 million on expense and growth opportunities in provincial parks over four years.  Capital investments including campground electrical expansion, service and visitor centre replacements, and water system upgrades will be undertaken this year.

Details on specific projects will be announced throughout the summer.  Several projects that were started last year will be completed this spring and available for use by park visitors.  These include a new potable water system at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park and a new, 68-site, full-service campground at Greenwater Lake Provincial Park that will open later this summer.

As it is still early in the season, a number of parks may have reduced services.  In some cases, parks may be under a precautionary drinking water advisory as they prepare their water lines for the year.  Some lakes may not be free of ice.  It is recommended that visitors check ahead for the services that will be available by visiting www.saskparks.net.

A listing of available services is posted and will be updated regularly.
