Large provincial park by large lake reservoir. A long 15 miles north of Moose Jaw off route 1 approach with fair paved road and wheat fields. Shorter road from Moose Jaw closed due to flooding. Stayed at the shady lane site which has a great view and some lower sites on the lake edge. Water faucets scattered about CG. Electric at site. New modern clean bath house. Gravel road and sites which were nicely separated. Lots of shrubs and grass. The road to the Buffalo pound area is long, very rough, narrow, pot holed and not good for a RV. A good family vacation area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are several different campgrounds in the Prov. Park - Shady Lane, Trails End, Maple Vale, Lakeside, Elmview, Valley, Rankins, & Lower Chalet (the last two are Group sites). Services in each of these vary. Shady Lane, Trails End, and Maple Vale have power, but others do not. I stayed only one night in site S20 - Shady Lane, site 20. It has a power hook up that is on the road. My 30 amp cord isn't very long, so if I wanted to use AC I would have had to park on the road. I parked way back into the massive site and would have needed a 50' cord to hook-up the 15 amp, but as it was one night, I didn't bother. The water tap for the other campers to use is right in site 20, could be annoying but no-one came for water. The Saskatchewan provincial parks charge $7/day/vehicle to enter the park. However, firewood is free, so it works out similar to Alberta where they charge $8 for a bag of wood but no park entry fee. On the government website where you make your reservation they charge $10/reservation so my one night at Shady Lane actually cost $39. The site was massive, and the firepit was fairly jammed up against the edge of it. Were there a group of people there sitting around, it would be difficult as it is quite near the trees. It's one elevated off the ground and fairly small, kind of annoying. The site was big and shady, but there was quite a bit of garbage laying around. The firepit clearly hadn't been cleaned out before I arrived as it had all sorts of junk in it. I picked up at least a full grocery bag of garbage from the site, and there were hundreds of cigarette butts. The lake is nice but difficult to find access for a dog. It was OK, but hopefully I find better in this province. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is kind of in the middle of no where. It makes it good if your traveling and need to stay a few nights. There are clean washrooms. The sites are fairly open. It is close to Moose Jaw. If you are visiting this area it is a nice choice as compared to private campgrounds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great for a campground, but not for big rigs. There were only two sites we could fit in, and we got some new pin stripes on our sides from tree limbs getting to those. We had a 30 amp site. The voltage varied from 105 down into the 90s without our Autoformer. If your rig is smaller than 30 feet, it would be a very pleasant place to camp. It's about 20 miles from town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we arrived we were assigned a site, easy off and on the highway, very conveniently located. We plugged into a 20 amp because all the 30 amp sites were taken. We turned on a few things and the breaker tripped, but it melted our plug before it tripped (tells me something is wrong with the breaker). It was a little noisy as this is a mobile home park as well, lots of residents and they tend to drive throught the sites beside you if they are empty. We contacted the office reference the melted plug and the possibility of the defective breaker and no one seemed to be concerned. We didn't have water as it was too cold out so it wasn't on in the park. There were some large potholes as you pull in so be careful. I might stay again but only as an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park had a great pool for the kids, with a water slide which was awesome! The park was clean and staff were cordial. However, the highway noise was unbearable, if you want to pull an all nighter this is the place to do it, because sleep is out of the question. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Seems like a low-margin enterprise just getting by. Staff was nice enough - even with a couple of wise-cracking Americans. Level sites, paved with gravel / trees / privacy panels between. Sewer at ground level. Water good. Got 5 TV channels (Public TV / Regina / Local). WiFi signal is strong, and they used good equipment for repeaters. Road noise not really noticeable. Nice town. Flying-J just north and west. This is a good place for an over-night or two. Plenty of working folks in the park, but it's pretty tidy. Only real gripe was the showers. If you have one in your camper, there's likely more room in yours than in theirs. Re-purposed toilet-stall partitions make for four separate barely 2'x2' showers with 2'x3' dressing area. Partitions are broken/fallen / broken latches, etc. Take your flip-flops. If you're there in a tent, you're grateful, if you're there in a camper, it's "why don't I just dump tanks in the morning?" If we're through here in the future, we'd stay again, since it's not 200 yards off the highway and in town (behind Oasis truck stop). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made reservations for a 2 night stay well in advance and were told there were no 50amp sites in park and we had to choose between 20 amp pull through with sewer or 30 amp back-in and no sewer. Our campsite was dusty and dirty with permanents driving too fast on gravel campsite roads. Would look for an alternate campground if in the area again. Wi-Fi was poor as we had to go to office area to get connection. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park in a good location. Located near two highways but nice and quiet. Walking distance of a Tim Horten's and good supermarkets within a couple of blocks. Spacious spots with good hookups, friendly staff and the office is open 24/7. Wi-Fi was fine even far from the store. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here for a family reunion. We had a pull through full service site. It was level. The washrooms were clean. There was a charge for the pool/water slide complex. This is a nice campground for short stay. The Wi-Fi worked great. My only complaint is the way the campground is laid out. The sites are very close together and over the course of two days we saw many many people walking through other peoples campsites including ours to get to the office, the pool, the washrooms. A dedicated pathway for each row of trailers would alleviate this problem. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in a water and 30A site near the back. It was a great location although a little far from the showers. Wi-Fi worked if you were outside but was quite weak. It is a great site for Family Reunions etc. as they have a great variety of RV and motel sites as well as a play ground for kids, water slide and mini golf. I would have rated it higher except the laundry is shared with staff and several washers and dryers are for them only. This can make coordinating washing and drying difficult. The number of RV sites listed includes several emergency sites that most travelers wouldn't use (is attached to the motel). Our rate was with the CAA discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice campground convenient to everything in Moose Jaw. Some sites are quite close together. There's room for the slides, but just barely. WiFi is best closest to the office. We were about as far away as possible, and WiFi service was intermittent. The washrooms are near the office, and as mentioned by another reviewer, there are no pathways through the rows of campsites, so if the park is full and you are in the last row, you will either walk through someone's site or all the way around the end to get to the washroom. We would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground has some nice pull-through sites farther away from the highway as well as back-in and tent sites closer to the highway. We stayed at a site with water and electricity closer to the highway. The highway was not bothering us, however, most of the back-in sites are next to a service road with traffic all day! If you stay here, pick one of the pull-through sites! WIFI apparently only works close to the office although advertised as being available on all sites. There is a playground area and an indoor pool (did not use it). Washrooms are in surprisingly used condition and were unfortunately not very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great place to stay. Very friendly reception. I was lucky because I didn't have a reservation. Paved sites. Clean washrooms and showers. Nice pool and hot tub. Wi-Fi. Water slide on location-minus a fee The only problem was that we were in the 4th row, far from the washroom and shower. There should be a path somewhere in the middle of the park instead of walking all the way around. There were no street lights that worked in our row. This is the best place in the Prairies that we had been to. We have stayed here before and certainly would again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice sites. Facilities were very clean. Playground for kids. Indoor pool with water slide and mini golf, both extra $. Located right off of Hwy 1. Tim Hortons across the street. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I agree with previous comments. They also have a very nice campground type area with back-in sites, but the WiFi is really only adequate in the first two rows of the full hookup sites. Those wishing to use the pool/water slide should be aware that there is a $6.80 per person per day charge for that (less for children). We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well run park with a very good location to the trans Canada. Lots of shopping around too. The facilities are looking like they could use some work in the near future but overall a good one night stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Reasonably well maintained facility which incorporates a motel as part of its operations. Could use some limb cutting in the road ways and sites. We were able to easily open our slides without hitting limbs but others were not as fortunate. Quiet site near Trans Canada. Water and power were good. Stayed here only one night but would stay longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very narrow sites. Small fence separated our site from the next. Almost could not extend our bedroom slide. Heavily treed, therefore not satellite friendly. Wi-Fi usable. Very flat but dusty. Family oriented. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly nice RV park associated with a motel complex. The sites are separated by fences which are nice since the sites are pretty narrow. We were able to get our big rig into the site and get the slides out. We had a problem finding a place to park the toad. Some people park the cars or pickups along the roads which can create a problem getting around. There are trees that shade the sites although we were able to sight down the road and use our satellite dish. There was one long term RV where four young men stayed up all night and talked. They went to bed at 8:00 am. The managers didn't do anything about it that night but did talk to them the next day and it did not happen again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. The trees could use some trimming but you can get around. The wifi is very erratic. One minute strong then not there then back and weak and then gone and then back for who knows how long. Very frustrating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed one night, the RV Park was clean, neat and well maintained. We did not use many of their facilities. The only down side is the sites are a bit narrow but we did fit with all slides extended. Great place to stay if you ar passing through or visiting Moose Jaw. We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This complex includes a pullthru RV Park, a water-electric back-in area, a tent camping area, a large motel, and a permanent trailer park; all nicely separated. It also has an indoor water slide, pool, hot tub, and children's pool. The full service sites are a bit close together, separated with fences. The water-electric and tent sites are in a nice grassy area. Nice place, minimal highway noise, no trains, close to Wal-Mart and other stores. WIFI available at all sites but some distant sites have poor reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The name pretty much sums it up. This park is okay for an overnight or a short stay in Moose Jaw, but I certainly wouldn't make a point of coming here. The sites are very narrow and close together with little, fence-like partitions between the sites. There was barely enough room to extend the slides on both sides. The wifi didn't work when we were there and the lady at the desk said it had been out for a while. The staff was friendly and they did their best to accommodate people. If I was returning to Moose Jaw, I'd probably look somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Road to park has a narrow bridge to cross so big rigs should use caution. Dirt park roads and gravel campsites. Our site was a level back-in that had a picnic table in a shared grass area in the back. Electric and water were on shared posts in the back so some hookups will be on the wrong side. Sewer outlet midway. All utilities worked fine. Nice setting next to the river. No cable TV, but 2 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi signal strong and broad enough for downloads. I would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay here for 5 days. We had a full service site. The sites are very close together and are set up for smaller units probably because it is one of the oldest camp grounds in Saskatchewan. The staff was very helpful and are well aware of what is going on in the camp ground throughout the day. We were asked to move our car, which was parked in a vacant site, because there was another unit coming in a couple of hours. It is reasonably quiet at night you can hear some trains now and again but no loud train whistles. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Missed the turn to the park like many have. Coming south on Hwy 2 after turning off Manitoba, it is the first left turn, in front of the KCF. Address is 300 River Drive for your GPS. While there are sewer hookups, they are all taken (9) by the seasonal campers, so there aren't full hookups for transient campers. Guess gravel must be very expensive in Canada since all of the RV parks needed gravel that we have stayed in during our travels except the one in Winnipeg. This park is poorly maintained and one of our vent caps was damage with tree branch contact. Lot of train noise, but not usually loud except for the hooting which wasn't often. We went on the Al Capone tunnel tour and it was very good. Wi-Fi only next to the office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wifi very limited area. Cash only accepted for the fee. Shower and toilets require access code but were very clean. There are picnic tables at the sites and racks that can be used for starting a fire or barbecuing. Not all sites do 50 amp or 30 amp. My wife loves this campground. Very nice spa with geothermal heated water in town. Spa has an excellent dining room. Tunnels of Moose Jaw are worth a visit. There is a Flying J fuel station 370 North Service Rd. Hwy #11 We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grass sites in park by river. Walking distance to downtown and mineral spa. The bridge says there is a 10 ton limit but it seems to be an error as many large vehicles pass over it all the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
