How To...

Q: Why is there a new reservation website?

The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport’s contract for a reservation system provider was up for renewal in 2020. A formal Request for Proposals was issued and an extensive review of all proponents was completed. As a result, a new vendor has been selected.

Q: Who is the new service provider?

The new service provider is Aspira, the largest campsite reservation system provider in North America with 30 years of experience. Aspira's vast experience and expertise will be of great value to our campers.

Q:  Am I required to create a new user account?

Yes, customers are required to create a new account. Check out this tutorial to help guide you through the process.

Create an Account

Q: When I try to create a new account, how come I receive an error message stating the email address I have entered is already in the system?

You are receiving this message as you most likely already have an Aspira account (our campsite reservation system provider), an example of this might be your HAL account. Aspira also works with other jurisdictions across Canada in the hunting, angling and camping sectors to provide online services. As a customer service convenience, anyone with an existing Aspira account across Canada can use that account email and password to transact with Saskatchewan Parks. Access to your account is controlled through an email address and password ensuring the security of your information.

Instead of creating a new account, you can either log in as an existing customer if you remember your password, or you can choose to reset your password. Please be aware that if you choose to reset your password here, your password to sign into the other systems like HAL will also be changed. If there are changes to this process, we will provide an update to all HAL and SaskParks account holders/customers.

Q: Are there any changes to the fees for 2021?

Fee changes for 2021 include a $1 increase in nightly electric sites, now $33 a night, and a $2 increase in full-service nightly sites, now $44 a night. The new full-service seasonal sites offered at Greenwater Lake and Meadow Lake provincial parks are $3400. All other fees remain the same from 2020.

Q: I am a senior, do I still have to pick up a daily entry permit each time I visit a park?

Saskatchewan residents 65 years or older may receive a Senior Annual Park Entry Permit which provides free entry to provincial parks year round. You must provide proof of eligibility with government-issued ID when you arrive at the park to collect your permit. The permit is assigned to your Sask Parks customer account and for your use only in Saskatchewan provincial parks. Free daily and weekly permits are available in parks as well for our short-term visitors.

Q: How do I make a reservation on the new site?

Q: How do I get my Annual Park Entry Permit?

For Annual Park Entry Permits purchased on or after May 1 you will need to pick up your permit when you arrive at the park.

Q:  Are entry permits still transferrable?

Our Annual Park Entry Permits remain transferrable. Once purchased, an Annual Park Entry Permit will be assigned to the customer account, each time camping is booked, the customer can identify which vehicle will be used for that particular camping trip and the Annual Park Entry Permit can be transferred to that vehicle.

Q: How do I know which parks to search on the website if I have no knowledge of Sask Parks?

You can leave the location field blank or enter ‘Saskatchewan’ on the reservation site. After, there is also an option to click on the map to see where each park is located.

COVID Related Q&A's

Q: Will Group Camping be available this season? Will there be restrictions due to public health orders?

Yes group camping reservations are available this season. While group campsites are being offered, Sask Parks expects all visitors to adhere to public health orders and guidelines. Presently people may meet and greet outdoors with up to 10 people only, provided physical distancing between households can be maintained. Therefore, gatherings of over 10 people anywhere are not permitted. Campers/households can each occupy their own campsites within a group camping area. These limits and all public health orders are subject to change based on the COVID-19 situation. Public gatherings of any size beyond your immediate household are strongly discouraged at this time. 

Q: What will the camping season look like this year?

Will there be restrictions in place? As of right now, Sask Parks is continuing to plan as if it will be a normal camping season including additional COVID safety protocols such as enhanced cleaning, signage to ensure physical distancing, proper mask use, etc. Sask Parks will be following all public health orders put in place by the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

Q: I live outside of Saskatchewan. Can I make a reservation?

At this time, customers from out of province are able to reserve campsites for the 2021 season. Currently it is public health’s recommendation to limit interprovincial travel. Out of province campers should be aware the restrictions could change and consider that when deciding if they should reserve a campsite. We will continue to follow public health’s guidelines. You can keep up to date here.

Q: Will there be priority given to Saskatchewan residents for campsite reservations this year?

No, Saskatchewan Provincial Parks are a premier tourism destination for both Saskatchewan residents and out of province visitors that contribute to our provincial and local tourism economies and support in-park small businesses. While interprovincial travel is permitted, it is public health’s recommendation to limit interprovincial travel if possible. We will continue to follow public health’s guidelines. You can keep up to date here.

Q: What measures are Sask Parks taking to prevent the spread of COVID- 19?

The health and safety of Saskatchewan residents, park users and employees is our priority. We are following public health experts' advice and implementing measures to support the Government of Canada’s efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19. With the recent COVID-19 announcements by the province, Saskatchewan Parks is doing our part to follow the recommendations and guidelines provided. Everyone is encouraged to follow the advice on the website, www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus, and practice social distancing to limit exposure.
