The Manitoba government is once again providing free entry to provincial parks over the Labor Day long weekend. Vehicle permits are not required to visit provincial parks from this Friday to Monday, however regular fees still apply for provincial campgrounds. Individuals who want to camp can check site availability and make reservations through the Parks Reservation Service at www.manitobaparks.com or call 1-888-482-2267. Several provincial park campsites, cabins and yurts remain open through the fall allowing campers to stay as late as Thanksgiving.
The Saskatchewan government says don’t pack away the camping gear just yet. Campsites are available to be reserved online until September 30th in nearly all provincial parks with full services and amenities available. Parks Minister Laura Ross notes with a number of exciting special events taking place it’s a great opportunity to get out to a park, take in an activity or two and experience the beauty of fall in Saskatchewan parks.
