The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport has invested more than $250,000 to upgrade and expanding electrical service in nearly 60 campsites in Homestead and Elmview campgrounds at Douglas and Danielson provincial parks.
“The Lake Diefenbaker area is a very popular destination for visitors, and the camping opportunities at Douglas and Danielson provincial parks are part of the reason why,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said. “Electrical expansion and upgrade projects in our parks help to meet the needs of our visitors and ensure that they’re having the best possible park experience.”
The contract for this work was awarded to All-Brite Electric Co. Ltd. of Saskatoon. Work is scheduled to begin this fall, and is expected to be substantially complete before the 2018 summer season.
Though summer is winding down, camping season is not. Many provincial parks, including Douglas and Danielson offer camping well into September. Camping after the Labour Day long weekend is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, though some parks do offer reservations into the fall.
