Echo Valley and Saskatchewan Landing Parks Open Early for Campers

Released on May 4, 2018

Got the camping bug and can’t wait until summer to enjoy nature?

Two provincial parks will open early for campers who want to get a jump on this year’s camping season.  Two campgrounds in Echo Valley Provincial Park and one campground in Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park will open on Thursday, May 10, a week earlier than the scheduled provincial park opening.

“The opportunity to open early for campers was just too good to pass up,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “After a long winter, many campers are looking forward to getting out to the parks.  I am pleased we will be able to lengthen the season for our dedicated campers so they can take advantage of the beautiful spring weather we are finally seeing and make the most of this year’s season.”

Registration for early camping is on a first-come, first-serve self-registration basis.  Guests can enjoy reduced nightly fees and free park entry up until Thursday, May 17.

“Early season camping gives visitors a chance to experience the park at one of the most beautiful times of the year,” Saskatchewan Landing Park Manager Tricia Bacon said.  “To be on the safe side, campers should come prepared for changing conditions so they can enjoy the experience no matter what nature provides for weather.”

Visitors should note that there will be reduced services with some facilities not open during this week.

Once the parks open for regular nightly camping on May 17, campers will need to reserve their site online at www.saskparks.goingtocamp.com if they wish to extend their stay.

The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport continues to invest in facilities and infrastructure at Echo Valley and Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Parks as part of a commitment to improve the park experience for visitors.
