REGINA – The Saskatchewan government says flooding is not expected to slow the flow of visitors to provincial parks this weekend.

SaskParks says the weather forecast looks promising and some locations that have wet campgrounds are starting to dry out.

Spokeswoman Mary-Anne Wihak says every park is open and fully operational, with the exception of Crooked Lake, but she advises that visitors should check for road closures before heading out.

Seventy-five communities in Saskatchewan still have states of emergency following last weekend’s storm that dumped upwards of 200 millimetres of rain on some areas in the extreme southeast.
