Saskatchewan boasts two national parks: Prince Albert National Park in the northern boreal forest, and Grasslands National Park in the rolling hills of the southwest. The two national parks are perfect examples of the province’s varied landscape.
In the north, Prince Albert National Park is 3,875 sq. km of outstanding natural wonders where parkland meets forest. Bison, eagles, osprey, white pelicans, beaver, elk, bear and moose live here. Recreation is ample year-round with excellent camping, golfing, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and much more.
Grasslands National Park is a more than 570-sq. km expanse of mixed prairie grasslands where hiking and primitive camping are popular. Plains bison roam this vast range of untouched land. It is also home to endangered animals like the burrowing owl, pronghorn antelope and Canada’s only colonies of black-tailed prairie dogs. The park is also a designated Dark Sky Preserve.
