You can almost hear the crackling fire and taste those roasted marshmallows now that Saskatchewan’s Provincial Parks have officially opened for the season.
Provincial parks officially opened on May 18, and another busy start to the year is expected during the Victoria Day Long Weekend.
As in past years, an alcohol ban will once again be in place from Thursday, May 18 to Monday, May 22 inclusive. This alcohol ban affects all campgrounds and picnic areas within provincial parks and recreation sites. The ban is also in effect for several regional parks. Cottages and commercial businesses in provincial parks are not affected by the ban.
As it is still early in the season, a number of parks may have reduced services. In some cases, parks may be under a precautionary drinking water advisory as they prepare their water lines for the year. It is recommended that visitors check ahead for the services that will be available by going to www.saskparks.net/SpringCamping. A list of available services is posted and will be updated regularly.
