Full schedule of reservation dates for Sask. provincial parks
As camping season creeps closer and closer, the Saskatchewan government is releasing more details, and are reminding everybody that in just four days, you can begin reserving your campsites.
“With a variety of activities available and an abundance of beautiful landscapes and lakes to explore, it’s no surprise our provincial parks continue to be popular travel destinations,” Parks, Culture and Sports Minister Gene Makowsky said.
“Whether you prefer adventure or relaxation, there’s so much to see, learn and discover. We look forward to welcoming guests back to our parks for another memorable season.”
To help provide the best user experience during the reservation launch, the launch dates will be staggered for all provincial parks. By staggering the launch dates, SaskParks is able to manage the high demand on the system and can ensure faster checkout times.
Over the next 10 business days, one-to-three new parks will open for reservations each day at 7 a.m.
From April 9 – 13, and April 16 – 20, the queue system will open at 6:40 a.m. CT daily. To be placed in the queue, you will need to log in to the reservation system between 6:40 a.m. and 7 a.m.
At 7 a.m., you will receive a random number and will enter the reservation website to proceed with your booking. If you access the reservation website after 7 a.m., you will be placed at the end of the line.
