We are planning 3 weeks this summer in Saskatchewan on a lake. Didn't think it would be that big a deal, as Sask has thousands of lakes.

I have a 93 year old aunt I want to visit, so I'm looking close to Swift Current.

Well gee whiz, its turned into a serious pain in rear. We have a rear window living area so want to back in to a site with a view of the lake or something nice.

Didn't think this would be so difficult.

Seems like there are now more RV'ers than CG's.

We have looked online at numerous places, tried booking one and all we can get is unsuitable sites.

Sigh.....

Maybe I should ask Don...
Don? You're a Sask boy, any thoughts?

Not many regional or provincial parks are even accepting reservations this early.

People are learning all over that you can not make short term reservations any more - I have 4 reservations for the winter of 2020 already - the last three parks we have stayed at on the Texas Gulf coast were 100% occupied

In 15 years of RVing I have had one site like the one you are looking for; and that was by luck. How about settling for a campground on a lake that you can walk to.

Oh, I figured I better get after it or I'll wind up Wallydocking in Regina or something....
Didn't think it was too early.

I'm ok with that as long as our rear living area isn't staring at a neighbor or a garbage bin or something. We like to look out at something peaceful over our morning coffee.

Bob,

I'd go to Saskatchewan Landing. It is 52 k from Swift Current and the entire park is along the Saskatchewan River.

Do take time to go to the Drivin movie theatre at Kyle, SK

The wife and I drove down to a couple of our local campgrounds one Saturday during the summer last year. both have signs that they are full. as we are driving through we see several sites vacant 8- 10, as we are exiting I see the camp host and ask if your full how come you have many open sites. he says they are reserved, but he also says the people may or probably wont show up. most were reserved for three nights the soonest we could have one would be monday afternoon. even though they sat vacant Friday Saturday and Sunday. what gives!

Thanks Don, I'll check it out.

Part of our trip will be a run to Carlyle for a couple days. We are going to meet with a bunch of my cousins for a family reunion gathering. But then back to our main stay somewhere close to Swift.

Want to take a run to Maryfield too.
