Unfortunately we were only able to spend an overnight at this most lonely and remote provincial park that sits along one side of Buffalo Pound Lake. Don't be confused by the various 'campgrounds' listed within the park, they are merely loops within the park. We stayed in Maple Vale loop. Most sites were pull-off with no backing up required, all were large and afforded good privacy, and all had a picnic table and an elevated fire pit. There were washrooms in the loop as well as a water spigot, with showers in an adjacent loop. We reserved online, yet had to re-register upon arrival with the person at the kiosk asking all the questions that I had answered on the online registration form - typical government bureaucracy. At one point I refused to answer, telling her to get the answer from my online reservation form. At $46 for an E site (including the $8 per vehicle park fee), camping at this provincial park is totally overpriced - you can camp in Banff for less than that. We camped at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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 at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park 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 at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park 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 at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park 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 at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
