- the cost to recharge your soul

Saskatchewan is one of the most affordable places to camp in Canada, and our provincial parks and recreation sites offer a wide range of camping experiences to choose from. All of our primary campgrounds offer service centres with free bathroom and shower facilities and most offer laundry facilities and playground areas. Fresh drinking water, fire pits, fire wood and picnic tables are available at all provincial parks. Saskatchewan's natural beauty and clean air make camping in a provincial park a refreshing experience.

NOTE: Camping fees vary by service type and location, see our reservation website for details. All fees are subject to change
