Very nice park. It is a new park and has lots of potential. The only problem we found was the sites fine but the road to access a sit is very narrow and it is almost impossible to 'not' drive on the grass when pulling in or pulling out. The grass at the entrance/exit to the site needs to be curved more to allow for a big rig to get in and out without damaging the grass. The staff was pleasant. We would recommend this park and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. OK campground for the most part. All sites are pull-through but can be a little tight for big rigs (narrow roads, shortish sites); no trees to contend with, which helps in terms of maneuvering. Good WSE connections. Only about one kilometer from the highway but the access road as well as the inner roads and sites are dirt. It had rained recently, and everything from the highway on was muddy; truck, fifth-wheel and car were absolutely filthy by the time we left the next day. Still, this campground would be excellent for an overnighter--on a dry day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shows Good Sam discount for one night. All RV sites are pull-thru with grass patio. All services worked well, but note that water pressure is high and need a pressure reducing device to avoid pipe damage. WiFi was lighting fast with instant response. Aerial TV reception provided clear picture. Was quiet notwithstanding location near Highway 16. Staff friendly and helpful. Distance to Saskatoon is not significant. Would stay here again when next in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$33.00 is the weekly rate divided by 7. Very nice campground, but a good 10 - 15 minute drive west of Saskatoon. Large pull-through sites. Well cared for grounds. Nice children's playground. WiFi was quite slow and a bit unreliable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the first RV park we stayed at with our new camper. A great place to stay if you are new to RVing. Everything is very easy. All sites are pull through, water and sewer at each site, and bathrooms exceptionally clean. Fires are allowed with pits at each site and firewood available from office. Store is well equipped with essentials and RV supplies. This is a new campground so scenery is still a work in progress but a great place to hang your hat while visiting Saskatoon. Would have given it a 10 except the Wi-Fi is a bit hit and miss. Will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great new park just outside Saskatoon. Trees have been planted and will provide shade areas when grown. Showers (charge) and rest room are beautiful, worthy of a high class hotel. Laundry area is cramped though. Shop was running down at end of season, but all essentials available. Owners very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Brand new park as of June 2011 just west of Saskatoon...which was sorely needed in that area. Owner manager was very nice and the park has brand new sod, hookups, and trees. About a half mile off the highway so noise wasn't an issue. Park has Wi-Fi transmitters all over so good Internet (free). Ten minute drive to Saskatoon town center. Grass sites spaced nicely with customized fire pits. Brand new showers and laundry room and RV store. Only drawback is I really tried not to run over sprinkler heads with the 5th wheel...but it's hard to miss them coming in with a trailer. Watch carefully for entrance signs coming from the west. Definitely enjoyed our stay there for 3 nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the nicest campgrounds in western Canada. Park like setting. Have camped here in the past many years ago. The only problems I found is that they need to upgrade the amenities for the campers. The men's showers were in bad need of repairs. Two of the four stall were not working. Water always on floor outside of stalls, but overall washrooms very clean. Wi-Fi very very poor - hard to log on unless sitting outside main office. My advise to the campground is upgrade the campground with better Wi-Fi , fix up washrooms, put in cable TV and you would again have the best campground in western Canada . We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were disappointed that they did not offer full service sites, only electricity and water, but we decided to stay for 3 days anyway, and we were glad we did. We had a great site which was shaded and easy to back up in. The staff were very friendly and helpful in all manners. The wifi was good at times, but kept on loosing it every so often. Campsite was close to everything, and it was right in town, but out of the way. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice place in the middle of the city. The campsites are a little small (I had to work a bit to get my 30' travel trailer into the site) however quite private because of the trees and bushes between the sites. The playground was very nice for the kids to play on. When driving to the campground it seems a bit out of the way and you drive through some sketchy looking neighbourhoods but once you're in the campground itself you don't notice anything. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a find. I would have given this a 10, except there was no sewer at the site. Otherwise it's a wonderful park. Lots of shrubs and trees make each site secluded. No satellite (too many trees. Very strong Wi-Fi. Sites are huge and easy to back into. Highly recommend this park We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is just beautiful and worth every single dollar you spend. Our rate was for a back-in W/E site including taxes. Excellent park layout and very well maintained. Fair size, level sites with good hookup access. A lilac hedge surrounds the site and provides lots of privacy as well as a nice bloomy smell. Quiet at night. Excellent laundry facility, even providing an iron and board. Good reliable Wi-Fi. Just one dump station on the way out, this might be an issue when lots of campers leave at the same time. Water pressure is very high; you definitely need a pressure regulator. The friendly and helpful staff will remind you and sell a regulator in case you need one. Right now there is lots of construction on the way to the park. Ignore your GPS and take 11th Street to Avenue P. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our stay here just before Labor Day 2011. Gordie Howe park is run by the city and is very well kept and efficient. The staff is professional and friendly, and the store is well stocked including a freezer with local beef, pork and chicken as well as frozen dinners. The sites are almost secluded due to the landscaping and each site has tons of room, the hookups worked well, and using the one centrally located dump was never a problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient to town. Nicely landscaped – the campsites have tall hedges between them, which gives you a feeling of privacy. Good shower facilities. The manager was very friendly and made recommendations on nearby stores and attractions. If you like to be out in the woods, this is not your place. But it’s the best local park campground we have been to so far. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found out about this park from the Woodall's book and the directions given were a bit sketchy to us as we're unfamiliar with the roads and the road signs of Canada. In our confusion, we ended up driving our "big rig" right through the middle of downtown Saskatoon. While this doesn't affect my overall rating of the park, it is something that would affect my consideration of choosing to stay here as I find it rather scary to drive through a large city during rush hour traffic. Fortunately, the park and the staff here are well worth the effort if you're looking for a place to get off the road for more than a day. Each campsite is surrounded with bushes to give it a unique kind of privacy. We were here too early in the Spring to see the benefit of this arrangement, but it's clear that the sites are laid out for maximum privacy. There are no sewers, only a dump station on the way out and a service is available on weekdays to pump out your tanks for an extra fee if needed. I would definitely plan to stay here again if I'm ever in this area although I would plan my arrival more carefully the next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is a jewel. The place where we were reserved was not able to accommodate us due to standing water and Gordon Howe was available. The sites were very nice and the grounds were very well kept. The managers were extremely friendly. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone... A-1!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wonderful private sites surrounded by mature trees and hedges. Has the best playground right in the middle surrounded by a beautiful grass park. We were really pleased with our campsite due to privacy. Laundry and showers were very clean and office staff were very nice. They don't have cable TV hookups but we had three TV stations (air) come through very clean. The only two downsides were that it didn't have a spot for campfires on the ground (it did have a standing bbq where you could use firewood), and it didn't have sewer at each site. However the sewer dump was easily accessable and clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great campground. I would have gotten a 9 if it had been in a nicer area of town. It really is an amazing oasis right in the city. It was well run, the store is well stocked and it is fairly quiet. A concert festival was going on across the river and we could hear that during our stay, but overall it was the nicest city park we have stayed in to date. Oh: the free Wi-Fi is smoking fast! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is one of the most pleasant places we’ve stayed to date. The playground had the most important feature that a playground can have: lots of other kids. The gravel-paved slots were roomy and very private with tall shrubbery between. The shrubbery, in fact, was so lush that we brushed it on all sides backing in. They only have back-in slots, but ours was on a corner, so it was easy to swing around and back in. Each slot had a grill and picnic table, and it was nice to sit out during the day. The bathhouses were clean and roomy, if somewhat industrial. The water tasted very good. This park is a hidden gem in the southwest corner of Saskatoon and convenient for shopping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners went out of their way to accommodate us when we arrived without a reservation. There are large sites, treed and lots of privacy. Only disadvantages: we had to use 15 amp (at least we had a site, and they said they would be upgrading next year to some 50 amp sites.) And, there were workmen living in the campground, so lots of diesels going to work in early AM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful place, have camped here 5 or 6 times and have always been treated well. Never have charged me to dump my tanks but they do charge if they come to your campsite and pump you. Quiet, no bugs, and very well managed. You would never know your in the middle of a city and it's also next door to a very nice 18 hole golf course. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Hi all: this is my second visit to this facility. It features back in sites with hedges between each offering wonderful privacy. Quiet time is enforced. The only negative is the $6.00 charge for sewer dump. However there are three free dump sites in the city. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The GPS location is 52.10713 -106.69293. Water pressure is 100 psi, so be sure to use a reducer! There is a small store in the office and they do stock pressure reducers. The sites are paved, large and fairly level. There are hedges between sites with excellent privacy, a picnic table and fire grill included in the grassy enclosure. The Wifi is free and works well. No visitors are allowed after 11 p.m. The dump station charge is $6.00. There are free dump sites at both the Flying J and the Husky gas stations at the north end of the city. There is another free dump site at an Esso Station on the west end of the city. I was quite amazed that so many folks were already out in their RV's. The camp does have an overflow area. Some of the overflow sites allow generator use but some do not. It is owned and operated by the City of Saskatoon. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The road access in the park is rough with potholes. In the park they have not done anything with their roads, muddy deep potholes and dead trees welcome you after you register. Grass has not been cut for a long time and you can almost bale it now that it has been cut. These are apparently new owners who just seem to want your money and do not want to maintain the park. It used to be well maintained but not now. The interior roads are really dusty with out dust control. I would not recommend this park . We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The first time we left a campground instead of checking in. A terrible, pothole rich gravel road parallel to the Trans Canada Highway leads to the entrance. We asked for a site in the back to avoid the highway noise. We were offered two sites to choose from. Luckily we decided to walk instead of driving because the road inside the campground was even worse. Tons of serious potholes. The first site we looked at was mostly flooded due to heavy rain the days before. The other one was almost dry but completely unlevel. The highway noise was still unbearable and the Wi-Fi signal was weak to nonexistent. We would not have stayed here even for free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our rate included a 15% discount. There was rain and mud puddles (lakes). Very little maintenance done here. Tall grass and all kinds of bugs. Must not own a weed-whacker. Nearly impossible to walk the dogs in the mud. Need to put gravel on roads and sites. Very, very noisy with the freeway and various industrial sites next to the campground. Don't mind the airport noise--not many flights. Charged $35 for a 30# propane refill. Won't stay here again. Someone needs to build a new campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park might be fine at a different time of the year, but when we stayed they had had a lot of rain and a lot of sites were flooded. Lots of potholes in the road. They could fix much of this problem by raising the level of the roads and adding gravel. Many sites, ours included, were muddy. Staff were friendly to us. Mosquitoes were very bad. We would not stay here again under similar (wet) conditions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Office staff were very nice, but we did not have a good experience at this campground. It was very noisy as it is beside the highway (I think all of the spots are quite noisy), and completely mosquito infested as the campsite was filled with water and the grass hadn't been cut in a long time (was over my knees). The grass was as high as the top of the picnic table. This wasn't a short term thing, as it looked like it hadn't been cut at all that year. Staff did try to move us to a different spot but it was so wet (it was a grass site) that the trailer was sinking into the ground, and it was right beside the highway so very noisy. It also did not have 50 amp service or sewer. They would not move us into a more appropriate spot in the campground, even though there were empty spaces at that time as it was coming up on the long weekend and the campground would be full at that time. If 16 West RV Park would have just declined our reservation because they didn't have an appropriate spot, we could have made suitable reservations elsewhere such that we wouldn't have had to cut our trip short. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The woman at the desk was very, very nice. My spot was level and had a bit of shade, although many others didn't. There was some road noise, and a bit of dust from construction across the road (the wind was strong out of the south), but overall well-kept. Electric was fine, and the water was city water and ran clear. WiFi was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The worst park I have ever stayed in. Owners were very rude and have no people skills. Lots of highway noise, the washrooms were clean but basic and not very private. I saw the owner talking to one camper and I couldn't believe how he was treating him. Everytime someone next to me plugged in their power or unplugged it I lost my power. After the way I saw the owner talk to the other camper I figured it wasn't worth the grief to mention it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was a disappointment based on reviews I had read and word of mouth reports. Yes the bathrooms were clean. That is about all I can think of that was good about the place. The staff/owners treated us like unwelcome guests that had dropped in unannounced. We had a reservation but they took their sweet time looking for it. I should have written my name down for them in big block letters as it seems English was not a strength for them. The child (or grandchild) of the owner told our kids that the playground belonged to them and that they couldn't play on it. So we spent time at the trout pond and the owner behaved like we were stealing his fish. Highway noise was too much and my wife didn't sleep at all. Very little room between the sites. I was glad to leave. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Very nice park, clean facilities and spacious spots. Outside of town with trees and grass between sites. Showers and restrooms were very clean and free. We only stayed one night but would definitely stay again. Wi-Fi worked great. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a pleasant surprise to find such a nice RV park! It is extremely well maintained and the bathroom facilities were spotless. They are cleaned daily from 10:30 to 12:30. Sites are wide and well groomed gravel. Very close to town. I would definitely stay in this park again and wished that I stayed there longer than we did. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very well laid out and maintained park. Large wide pull throughs. Three wifi transmitters for this small park give excellent coverage. Traffic noise is an issue. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Signage to campground good but service road needed maintenance. Entrance wide and sufficient area to park and register. Office staff very friendly, informative and efficient. Gravel access roads to sites wide but could have done with a bit more maintenance. Good large and flat pull-thru sites with full hook-ups located in right position. Electricity solid and water pressure good. Some road noise so ask for site near back of campground. Good ambiance to campground which made it a good place to stay for a few days. Convenient to Saskatoon and local attractions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very attractive park with large sites. Mostly full-hookup pull-throughs. We had a pull-through that was far larger than we needed for a 40' MH and toad. The store stocked everything including freshly made cabbage rolls, perogies, borscht, pies, etc. Free coffee all day. Free, fast WiFi that worked even at the farthest point in the park. Plenty of manicured lawn between sites and in the park open areas. It is adjacent to Highway 16, so sites near the highway probably get significant road noise. We were at the back of the park, and it was barely noticeable, depending on which way the wind was blowing. The park filled up both nights we were there. They give a 15% discount to Escapees. Flying J, Costco, Safeway, and other stores are nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
