Just a note to let people know that the Saskatchewan Provincial Government has levied a $6.00 per nite surcharge on all non resident campers in their Provincial Campgrounds. That includes non resident Canadians. Most of these campgrounds offer only electricity at the sites so now you pay $28.00 for electric only when Saskatchewan residents pay $22.00. I can't think of a quicker way to have their provincial campsites turned over exclusively to Saskatchewan citizens. So much for the welcoming nature of prairie folk. I am a Saskatchewan born Canadian resident living elsewhere in Canada. I will not be back to camp in my home province. mad.gif

I can see your point, and have mixed feelings on this.

Years ago when living in Oregon, there was a state park camping surcharge for non-Oregon residents. I'm not sure if it still exists. I always felt it was unfair, as visitors brought in a lot of tourism dollars to our area.

On the other hand, I camp a lot in New Mexico, and buy an out-of-state annual camping pass for the state parks. It is more expensive for non-residents, but both the resident and non-resident rates are quite reasonable, so I don't mind paying more.

I haven't encountered this at Oregon state parks. We stay at Valley of the Rogue State Park a couple times a year. I guess things have changed.
