The provincial government is staggering launch dates and using a queuing system once again to manage the high amount of people attempting to book sites. People can also book through the call centre at 1-855-737-7275.

  • Monday, April 13: Seasonal campsites.
  • Wednesday, April 15: Pike Lake, The Battlefords, Narrow Hills, Blackstrap.
  • Thursday, April 16: Bronson Forest, Meadow Lake, Makwa Lake, Lac La Ronge.

Schools and youth groups are asked to continue booking by calling the parks directly, not by using the online system. Sask Parks said the group campsites for 2020 are currently open for reservations. 

When booking a campsite, people can purchase a vehicle entry permit at $75 that will last for the year. The permits are required year-round. 

Sask Parks's official 2020 camping season begins on Thursday, May 14.
