The province says park entry fees will increase slightly this year in response to the growing number of park services provided year-round and in accordance with Provincial Sales Tax.
Annual vehicle entry will cost you $82, weekly vehicle entry has gone up to $42, and a daily pass will now cost $11. Camp-easy sites will increase from $80 to $85 per night. Some swimming entry and equipment rentals will also see a slight increase.
All other fees including nightly, seasonal and group camping will remain the same for the 2023 camping season.
Something new this year will see a notification feature on the reservation system allow campers to sign up to receive an alert if a specific campsite becomes available.
Campers can also look forward to a total of 37 new seasonal sites: two full-service in Good Spirit Lake, eight electric in Buffalo Pound, a mix of 18 electric and non-electric in Makwa Lake, a mix of four electric and full-service at Meadow Lake and five electric at Moose Mountain.
New Camp-Easy yurts have been added at Pike Lake, Good Spirit Lake and Greenwater Lake provincial parks with a new yurt replacing the old Camp-Easy tent in Crooked Lake.
