Using the Queue:

During launch, a queuing system will be used to manage the demand for the reservation system. At peak volume times, visitors attempting to access the reservation website may find themselves redirected to the queue, where they will wait to enter the reservation system. This process helps to ensure the stability of the reservation system.

  • As in past years, reservations will open at 7:00 a.m. CST each day. We recommend that you arrive to the reservation website shortly before 7:00 a.m.
  • The queuing system will be in place each morning at 6:40. Anyone accessing the reservation website between 6:40 and 7:00 a.m. will be moved to the queue waiting area.
  • At 7:00 a.m., customers in the waiting area will receive a random number and will be admitted to the reservation website based on that unique number.
  • Anyone arriving to the reservation website at or after 7:00 a.m. will be placed at the back of the line.
  • If you are on the reservation website prior to 6:40 a.m., you will need to refresh your page at some point between 6:40 and 7:00 a.m. If it is between 6:40 and 7:00 and you appear to be on the reservation website, you are not in the waiting area and you need to refresh your page, otherwise at 7:00 a.m. you will move to the back of the line.

General Reservation Information:

There are three ways to make a campsite reservation: our full reservation website (, our mobile reservation website( and our call centre (1-855-737-7275). 

Tips for booking on the full reservation website:

• Use of the calendar view will provide you with more options for stays if you are flexible with your arrival and/or departure dates

Tips for booking on the mobile version:

• You do not need a smartphone to access the mobile system; you can also use a tablet or any computer.

• This website is set up to be easy to navigate on a mobile device so there are no pictures, maps or shopping cart.  This website works well if you already know the campsite you want and can be a quicker way to make a reservation!

• Swimming lessons and double campsites cannot be booked using the mobile version

• You can also access the full reservation website from any smart or mobile device.

In order to book on both the mobile and desktop versions of the reservation website, you will need to have cookies "enabled" or "allowed".

Our call centre will also be accepting camping reservations.  The phone number is 1-855-737-7275 (from outside North America, call 1-519-826-6784). Hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. CST, 7 days a week.  A $2.00 surcharge applies (in addition to the reservation fee) for call centre reservations.

All fees, including the non-refundable reservation fee and the camping fees for the duration of your stay, are required at the time of booking in order to secure your reservation.

For online bookings, all fees must be paid by credit card.  For additional information on camping fees click here.

Accessible and Barrier Free Facilities

Accessible or barrier free campsites are designed for campers with accessibility needs and are available through the reservation service. Find a campsite by using the search preferences.

When reserving an accessible or barrier free campsite, a valid accessible parking permit number, expiry month and expiry year will be required.  During the campsite check-in process at the park, the permit will also be verified.  Please contact the park office prior to travel to obtain current information regarding the types of facilities available.

Entry Permits

If your reservation is made more than 14 days prior to arrival, you will have the opportunity to purchase vehicle entry permits through the reserve-a-site system in combination with your camping reservation.  Annual Transferable Vehicle Entry Permits will be mailed to you in advance of arrival, allowing you to visit a park at any time prior to your reserved stay.  Daily vehicle entry permits will be available upon check-in at the park for the reservation they were purchased with.

Express Check-In

Express Check-In is a quick and efficient way to arrive at your campsite. To take advantage of the program, you must have:

  • a camping reservation made using the online reservation system
  • a valid Annual Transferable Vehicle Entry Permit either purchased online or from a previous 2017 visit to a Saskatchewan Provincial Park
  • and the printed email confirmation tear-off

When you arrive at the park, ensure that your Annual Transferable Vehicle Entry Permit is displayed on your window and deposit the completed tear-off in the identified station at the park and proceed to your campsite.

The Express Check-In program is available at Cypress Hills, Douglas, Duck Mountain, Greenwater Lake, Pike Lake and The Battlefords Provincial Parks.

Campers without a reservation or an Annual Transferable Vehicle Entry Permit must proceed to the nearest park office to register for camping and purchase their park entry.

Maximum Stay Campsites

To ensure a fair opportunity for more visitors to enjoy a provincial park camping experience, some campsites have been designated as ‘Maximum 14-Consecutive Night Stay’ campsites from June 24 to the September long weekend.  You are welcome to extend your stay in these campsites by registering in an alternate campsite at the end of the 14 nights; however, parties from the same household may not register for back-to-back bookings in the same campsite. There are also unlimited stay campsites available on the reservation system for extended stays.

Helpful Hint: If you are using the online reservation system and you are staying less than 14 nights, ‘include’ maximum stay campsites in your search preferences.  If you are planning a camping stay for more than 14 nights, ‘exclude’ maximum stay campsites from your search preferences.

Swimming Lessons Available for Reservation Online

Swimming Lessons will be reservable online in 2017 for Buffalo Pound, Cypress Hills and Pike Lake Provincial Parks.

Helpful Hint: To reserve a swimming lesson spot using the full version of the reservation website, change the ‘Reservation Type’ from "Campsite" to "Swimming Lesson" in the drop down tab, and pick your park. Reservations for swimming lessons will become available on the same day as nightly camping reservations.

Yellow Phone

The yellow phone service is an autodialing, weatherproof telephone installed within the campground or adjacent to the park entry facilities. Call Centre staff facilitate common camper transactions over the telephone when park staff are unavailable.  The yellow phone service will continue to be offered at Bronson Forest, Candle Lake – Minowukaw, Chitek Lake, Crooked Lake, Lac La Ronge and Great Blue Heron-Anglin Lake.
