NEW RV CAMPSITES IN MOOSE MOUNTAIN

More people are travelling with larger motor homes and recreational

vehicles (RVs) and Saskatchewan's provincial parks are developing new full

service campsites designed to accommodate them.



"Cypress Hills and Meadow Lake provincial parks already have a number of

full service campsites," Acting Environment Minister Buckley Belanger

said. "They have been very popular, so this summer, 11 new full service

campsites are being developed at Moose Mountain Provincial Park."



Most parks can comfortably handle RV units in the 20 to 25 foot range in

campgrounds. The increasing popularity of larger trailers and motor homes,

however has led to a demand for more full-service campsites, which include

direct hookup to water, sewer and electricity.



This is the first of three full service campsite projects planned for the

next two years. The total cost of approximately $460,000 will be funded by

the province's Centenary Fund. The Centenary Fund will leave a legacy of

Saskatchewan's centennial for future generations.



If you would like more information about campsite facilities and

availability, call the toll-free Parks Information Line at 1-800-205-7070.
