Spring Camping

Spring Camping

Saskatchewan's provincial parks open for the season on the May long weekend. As it is still fairly early in the season, weather conditions may cause services to vary from park to park. Find spring camping information for your favorite provincial park in the information posted below. Please note that some of the parks are under seasonal start up precautionary drinking water advisories. If the park you plan to visit is under a PDWA, please bring your own supply of safe drinking water or plan to boil the park water for a minimum of one minute before consuming.

For further details on park services, please contact the park directly.

Listing updated as of 10 am on May 19, 2017.

Parks not listed have not yet finished their spring assessments. They will be added as information is available.
