All other fees including nightly, seasonal and group camping will remain the same for the 2023 camping season.
New to Sask. Parks in 2023 is a notification feature on the reservation system that will allow campers to sign up to receive an alert if a specific campsite becomes available.
Campers can also look forward to a total of 37 new seasonal sites: two full-service in Good Spirit Lake, eight electric in Buffalo Pound, a mix of 18 electric and non-electric in Makwa Lake, a mix of four electric and full-service at Meadow Lake and five electric at Moose Mountain. New Camp-Easy yurts have been added at Pike Lake, Good Spirit Lake and Greenwater Lake provincial parks with a new yurt replacing the old Camp-Easy tent in Crooked Lake.
