Fall Camping Opportunities

Camping is one of the most popular activities in a provincial park, no matter the season. However, as summer turns to fall, the operation of our camping system changes slightly. This page details everything you need to know about camping in a provincial park past the Labour Day long weekend.

Some parks offer reservations into the fall. Just like the summer season, the following campsites at these parks can be booked online or through our call centre (1-855-737-7275) in advance of your expected visit:

Cypress Hills Meadows Oct 13 1-12, 21-143
  Rainbow Sept 23 1-3, 5-70
  Deer Hollow Oct 13 1-35

Most parks also offer fall camping on a first-come/first-served, self-registration basis.

When one or more of the basic services (power, water, service centre, firewood, outdoor toilet) are unavailable, the camping rates for full-service, electric and non-electric campsites will be reduced by $4. Economy and equestrian campsite rates are not typically reduced.

Looking for someplace to camp in Saskatchewan or the Cypress Hills? In Saskatchewan, Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park is divided into two blocks of park area, the Centre Block with full service camping, extensive hiking trails, beach, swimming pool, Guided Segway Tours, observatory, scenic vistas and educational programs and events, and the West Block wilderness area with rustic camping facilities, an equestrian campground and the Trans Canada Trail. The West Block is also home to Fort Walsh National Historic Site and the Historic Reesor Ranch (for accommodations, dining, horseback riding and ATV Adventures) and it also links up to the Alberta side of the Interprovincial park.

The majority of the facilities and services are located in the Centre Block off highway #21 and #221 including the Visitor Centre and Park Administration.  Here you’ll find over 600 individual campsites in 5 main camgrounds. Campsite services range from basic to full hookup. Group campgrounds also exist for private functions and family gatherings. The Centre Block also has access to over 27 km of nature and hiking trails, scenic view points and a variety of outdoor pursuits.
