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.

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