With provincial camping spots around the midwest region, Lloydminster locals will be able to print camp passses to speed up checking in before they leave home.
This as camp lovers can now book their spot online as Sask Parks has opened campsite reservations for seasonal and nightly Camp-Easy and group campsites.
“This year, we’ve added some new features on the reservation site, including Campsite Favourites, which will allow campers to create and save a list in their online account instead of writing site numbers down, or saving photos on their phone,” says Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross.
Some of the new features include:
- Campsite comparison – compare up to three sites online to assist in deciding the site that best suits your needs;
- Campsite favourites – create a list of favourite sites that will be saved in your online account;
- Print-at-home entry – speed up the check-in process when you arrive at the park by printing your own daily or weekly entry permit at home. Annual entry permits purchased online will be mailed the next day (a printable temporary pass is available and valid for three weeks from purchase);
- Upgraded maps – in response to campers’ requests for better maps on the reservation site last year, geographical information system maps have been added to the site. Maps are based on geographical coordinates for campsites and amenities across the province;
- Four new day-use pavilions – available to reserve for dates starting in July at Blackstrap, Buffalo Pound, Echo Valley and Pike Lake Provincial Parks;
- New Pine Hill campground at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park – can be reserved for dates starting in July;
- Six new Camp-Easy yurts – available in various provincial parks with upgraded queen beds; and
- Hammock camping at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park – campsite includes a Weaver structure that holds up to six hammocks.
