On its website, the provincial government stated that Sask Parks is working to finalize and test the new system before reservations can be made.

“Customers will have access to the new website in early April to browse and become familiar with the new system,” the website states.

“This reservation system offers new amenities to customers, and is quite different than past years. This is a great opportunity for campers to become familiar with the new system making their reservation process a smooth one in the coming weeks,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said.

Also new this year, all vehicle entry permits will be available to buy online and through the call centre. Vehicle entry permits will automatically be added to customers’ carts when they are making a reservation. Customers that buy daily or weekly entry permits will now be able to print the permits from home and annual permits can be picked up in-park.

Because of this new change, campers will be able to go directly to their campsite once they arrive in park with Sask Parks’ auto check-in function.
