REGINA – For the first time in over 10 years, gate fees for campers are on the rise at Saskatchewan Provincial Park.

Prices for camping are jumping up $1 for nightly camping, $1-$5 for entry permits, $4-$8 for group camping and $30-$75 for seasonal camping.

Unlike other areas, Saskatchewan does not charge for campfire firewood, and the nightly camping fees remain similar to Manitoba and lower than Alberta and BC.

The 2016 nightly camping reservations will begin in April this year and like years past, the launch will be staggered over a 10-day period with a queuing system put in place.

A schedule for when each park will open for reservations will be announced later this month.

A full description of the new fees is available online at SaskParks.
