We stopped here as a break during our road trip. It has a nice playground and splash pad. A great spot for our 4 and 6 year old to play and stretch and splash!

Prince Albert National Park

Reviewed By acshelco1 - Wynyard, Canada

Come in winter if you want the park to yourselves. We cross-country skied and hiked and hardly ever saw another person. Park supplies free cross-country skis and snowshoes which was great! We used them every day. Saw river otters at the narrows the drive down in the snow was magical. Felt like our own personal national park was a great time

Immediately after we arrived at the hotel we booked in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada post ~8 hours driving started from Fargo, ND, USA, the first thing that family wanted to do was to visit this park. It was around 4:00pm in the afternoon of a sunny day at the end of July 2018. When we drove to park, we found that the park was built around the famous and beautiful Wascana Lake - a Park in the heart or center of the Regina City, like but bigger than the Center Park in New York City. There are several small islands in the lake with only one named “Pine Island” that we could freely walked into. From there you can see some people are boating or kayaking while birds like sea gulls and several swans are playing or maybe looking for food in the lake water. While we drove along the beach road to a place - should be at the Northwest corner, we were deeply attracted by the beauty of the flowers in a garden. So we parked our car and enjoyed the variety of the beautiful flowers inside the garden - Queen Elizabeth Garden that is in front of the Saskatchewan Provincial Legislative Building. Between the Building and the Garden, you can see the sculpture of Queen Elizabeth riding on a horse while on the other end of the Garden that is close to the lake you can see the sculpture of the most famous politician of Saskatchewan, Walters Scott, who was the founder of both Saskatchewan and Alberta provinces of Canada. Among all the beautiful views of the Park left in our brains, the unique beauty of the so many types of flowers in the Garden, are the most magnificent and unforgettable.

Grasslands National Park

Reviewed By cfandkn - Ottawa, Canada

Tired of fighting the crowds at the famous sites? Longing for some soul-cleansing big sky? Grasslands National Park in southern Saskatchewan is just the ticket. We spent 5 days/4 nights there in June and just loved it. If you are looking for creature comforts or wifi connection, this not the place for you. But if you want to sense what the grandeur of the Great Plains might have been long ago then this is a place not to miss. The Park is divided into an east and a west block. they are separated by about a 140 kilometre drive. We stayed in both blocks and it is worth making the effort. The Eastern block is even more isolated than the Western Block. The big attraction here is the landscape including the sweeping views, badlands and the big skies. It is a dark sky area and the night sky was better than we have seen anywhere in the world, on at least par with what we saw in the Bolivian Andes and in the Kalahari desert. The birds were also spectacular with several day time sightings of the usually nocturnal Night Hawk. The campground is completely new and very appropriate to its environment. Nothing fancy, but the basics are very appropriately covered. Take time to talk to the National Parks Staff. They are really friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their little-known gem. The hikes are different than in most parks as some of them are not trails but rather destinations which you reach by following landmarks. Just strike out over the prairie. You might just stumble upon some red Muskoka chairs in the absolute middle of nowhere. From there we moved to the West Block. This is quite different as it has a lot of game including bison, prong-horn antelope and a lot of black tailed prairie dogs. And more birds. There are historical sites from early attempts at ranching. And there are even some working ranches in the area as this park is a collaborative effort with the ranching community. For example, ranchers graze their cattle on parts of the unbroken prairie as this helps create tthe appropriate environment for the endangered Sage Grouse. The campground here is a also quite nice but don't expect trees! Do note that the wind can blow very hard out here. It is quite an experience and makes you really respect those who have made this environment their home over thousands of years. One more thing, Highway 18 should also be made into a national park. It winds its way through beautiful country and through tiny towns which seem to remain vital despite, or perhaps because of the isolation. Tread lightly out here, it is a unique and fragile environment.

I listened to the los Angeles hip hop group Cypress Hill before but that did not prepare me for the experience. It is one of the best parks in all of SK and alberta . Stayed at the Terrace Campgrounds and it is the legit spot with all the mod cons. Some parks you got to do your business in a he in the ground but not here. You can use the washroom in comfort at the cypress hills. Lookout point is pretty chill buy just check out the bald butte a little further and you can feel the vibe and everybody come alive. Them views is off the chains. They gots the general store in the park if you needs anyting. The Loch area got them lakes where people get they swim or kayak or paddle boat on. They also got some zip lines but you ain't gonna catch me ridin on them zipoines up in the air. Bottom line is Cypress hill is slept on as fat as parks I Alberta or SK go. Most people roll up in them big campers but if you got a twnt that's all you need.
