Starting in April visitors will be able to reserve campsites in Saskatchewan's Provincial Parks for the 2019 season.

A new and improved online reservation site will be available to enhance the overall visitor experience, as well as increase online services, such as seasonal bookings.

Other changes will include an increase for annual park entry permits and weekly permits, and three day entry permits will no longer be available.

Nightly full service and electric sites will also increase, as well as seasonal sites.

Minh Truong is the Director of Park Experiences. He says, "The reason behind the increase in fees is to help us set the increasing costs of operating. What that allows us to do is invest in, and increase the safety and reliability of our facilities and services across our Provincial Parks."

Daily entry and non-electric camping rates will not change.
