Camping season is not over in Saskatchewan with fall camping being offered in over 20 provincial parks.
“September may be here but there’s still plenty of time to get out and enjoy our parks,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “Fall in Saskatchewan’s parks is truly a special time. Families can take in the warm sunny days and crisp nights around the campfire, all while being surrounded by the natural beauty of the changing season.”
Campsites can be reserved in advance at Bronson Forest, Buffalo Pound, Cypress Hills, Duck Mountain, Great Blue Heron, Makwa Lake, Moose Mountain, Rowan’s Ravine and The Battlefords Provincial Parks. Many of these parks offer access to full amenities throughout September.
The sites can be booked through the online reservation system at www.saskparks.goingtocamp.com
or by calling 1-855-737-7275. By reserving in advance, visitors are guaranteed their chosen campsite will be available upon arrival.
Campgrounds that are available exclusively on a first-come, first-served self-registration basis are listed on Sask Parks fall camping page at www.tourismsaskatchewan.com/places-to-go/provincial-parks/camping/fall-camping.
Camp-Easy equipped campsites will remain open throughout most of September in Buffalo Pound, Echo Valley and Pike Lake Provincial Parks. Camp-Easy (www.tourismsaskatchewan.com/places-to-go/provincial-parks/campeasy) is a great option for anyone who doesn’t own camping equipment or simply prefers a more convenient getaway.
Park visitors can enjoy roasting marshmallows over the crackling fire this fall as fire restrictions have been lifted in all provincial parks, excluding Saskatchewan Landing. In areas where there hasn’t been a lot of rainfall, visitors are reminded to keep fires small and controlled.
To plan a park visit this fall, refer to the Sask Parks website for fall camping information Explore park trails, head out for a kayak on the lake or enjoy a picnic in a park.
