As in past years, nightly camping reservations for the 2015 season will open with a staggered launch at the beginning of March. This year, campers can expect the launch to be spread out over more days than it has been in the past, with fewer parks becoming available for reservations each day. The launch schedule will be announched in the new year.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE 2015 CAMPING SEASON
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.
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 is a quick and efficient way to arrive at your campsite. to take advantage of the program, you must have:
- a camping reseration made using the online reservation system
- a valid Annual Transferable Vehicle Entry Permit either purchased online or from a previous 2015 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 purchse 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 a single campsite. There are also unlimited stay campsites available on the reservation system for extended stays.
Helpful Hint: When using either version of 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 can be reserved online 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.
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.
