Saskatchewan’s two national parks are Prince Albert National Park and Grasslands National Park. The Town of Waskesiu, within Prince Albert National Park, has a range of accommodations and services plus two major campgrounds. Popular activities available within the park include hiking, tent camping, birding and wildlife viewing and nature photography.

In addition to camping facilities, many parks also provide planned activities and interpretive programs. These vary from park to park, so plan ahead to see what activities are going on at parks near your destination.
