Sask Parks Launches Camp-Easy - No Equipment Necessary

Released on May 11, 2018

Throughout the 2018 camping season, convenience-seekers or those brand new to camping can take advantage of Camp-Easy equipped campsites in three provincial parks.   Camp-Easy sites are great for campers who do not own camping equipment or aren’t sure if camping is for them, but would like to give it a try.  Guests can maximize their time spent in the park relaxing and exploring when eliminating set up and take down of their site.


“Camp-Easy is an innovative Sask Parks program launching this year,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “After asking both campers and people who don’t use the parks for suggestions on how to provide the best experience possible for our guests, we heard there was strong interest in this type of offering.  We hope that new and returning park visitors take advantage of Camp-Easy this season to connect with nature and experience Saskatchewan’s beautiful provincial parks.”

Available at Buffalo Pound, Echo Valley and Pike Lake provincial parks, Camp-Easy sites are closely located to urban centres making the activity more accessible to families and new campers.  Just a 30-60 minute drive from Saskatoon or Regina, Camp-Easy sites are ideal for a quick getaway with minimal effort and preparation required after booking.

Each campsite features a large canvas tent on a wooden platform, six sleeping cots, a screened dining tent, a camp stove and propane tank, a lantern, wash bins, camp chairs and roasting sticks.  Equipped campsites give guests the camping experience with the added benefits of being warmer and drier, and sleeping on a cot that is raised off the tent floor.  The stand-up tent and covered outdoor space provides protection from the elements.

For those who are new to camping and looking for a more guided experience, Sask Parks is offering a Learn to Camp program in Camp-Easy campsites on designated dates.  The program is designed to introduce beginner campers to skills and activities that are useful for a successful and memorable camping experience.  Participants will receive lessons from Learn to Camp Leaders.  To book a spot in a Camp-Easy Learn to Camp session, email learntocamp@gov.sk.ca.

While visiting the parks, guests will want to take advantage of the many events and programs scheduled throughout the camping season, from interpreter-led hikes to campfire singalongs and special performances.  Calendars with event details will be available at provincial parks and online starting in June.
