|The Government of Saskatchewan should be ashamed of themselves for having such roads in a provincial park, I have never seen such huge potholes and all over yet and the further you got into the park the worse they got. We will never ever ever come back there. Thanks for a bad experience.
|This park needs to fix the seaweed problem they have all through the swimming area. You can only get into the water a few feet and then the seaweed comes up to almost the top of the water - it is impossible to swim in! Also the sandy part of the beach is full of rocks, and not a very big area. (posted: 2004)||Silver|
|My friends and I went for an overnight trip to Blackstrap. The only complaint we had was the firewood situation. We are now required to pay 3.00 per night for a campfire which we didnt mind paying however there shoulda been more firewood available. One other complaint I just thought of, there is a swimming area where we usually camp and alot of people had there boats anchored into the sand... in order to swim we had to go farther out and when people got in there boats we had to watch and not get hit... if anyone who sees this regularly goes to blackstrap and parks there boat on the beach park it farther over so people can swim ...
|The beach needs a clean up of its underwater grass growth ASAP. Surely there are means to mow this kind of undergrowth, if there is a will and a budget to do so. It is a great spot to sneak away to from nearby Saskatoon, and more should be done to ensure locals continue to come regularly and bring their families. The hill's new store and bike park are welcome and badly needed additions to the park, which previously offered little or no such services.

|Comments (2006): Have been to Blackstrap quite a few times and find that the park needs a major upgrade. The road in May of 2006 was terrible in the park. It is not very well planned. The service centre at the campsite that has electrical service is the only nice part of the park. The bathrooms that do not have running water are disgusting, rotting and should be replaced. They need to look at the campground of Pike Lake for comparison. If Blackstrap had a water slide and more campsites it would be much better. (posted: 2006)||Gold|

|If you like people, this is a good park. If you want to get away from it all, you better go farther away from Saskatoon. Many people use Blackstrap as a day use park so the boat launch is always busy. (posted: 2012)||Silver|

|Buffalo Pound||Comments: B.P.P.P is a beautiful place to enjoy nature. The bike trails are second to none. The walking trails have majestic breathtaking scenery. The fishing is incredible with walleye up to 16 lbs. and pike over 25 lbs. (what more could a fisherman ask for!) The trout pond @ B.P. have rainbow trout over 10 lbs. and is as good a place to flyfish as any in the province. The campgrounds in the valley are beautiful as well as quiet and peaceful.

|This historic park is a true gem of the prairies. It was so interesting to take a step back into time and discover the unique lifestyle of those who came to Cannington Manor. The park staff were very friendly and interested in our questions. The only bad comment I have about the park is that the road to get there is not very well maintained and poorly signed.
|Jon is the best tour guide ever. It was such a great experience. We visited the park on special event day, and the Moose Mountain staff were also excellent. I would recommend this park to old and young alike. Congratulations Cannington Crew!! (posted: 2004)||Gold|

|Clarence-Steepbank Lakes||no comments
|This has to be one of the most peaceful and most breathtaking parks in Saskatchewan. I was there with some friends in June of 2003, and during our 2 day stay we saw approx. 10 people, all of whom came for a day trip from one of the surrounding parks or lodges. We had the entire campground to ourselves and spent our time moving from one lake to the next with our boat. We caught only 2 fish, but I think that is probably our fault, as non of us are that good. We are planning to go back up around the middle of September/beginning of October, and I hope it will be even more spectacular.
|(2004): For the whole long weekend in August 2004, we saw only a few people who were passing through. It was a great experience, we loved it. My family and I had the whole lake to ourselves. I was nice not to have any water skiers and other various watercrafts stirring up the water. Fishing was excellent. I would highly recommend Clarence to anyone. Unless elk calls keep you awake (5 a.m in the morning). (posted: 2004)||Gold|
|Nice park. There are 5 open style camping sites near the entrance and 2 more if you follow the road 7kms in to Steepbank lake. One of the 2 is higher on a plateau; the other is down below near the lake edge which you might need a 4wd to get to at some times of the year. These latter two spots are more secluded, private, and generally prettier. The bugs at this park were very bad when we were there in June. You need to bring a boat along to do fishing at any of the lakes. nicve hiking there, even if most of it is simply on the roads. (posted: 2005)||Silver|

|We just stayed in the group camping spots, Hidden Valley & Shady Nook. The campground lights were burned out, making Hidden Valley black at night, the toilets were overflowing and smelly. For having a large group site, there could have been more facilities. They just had 2 outhouses and a water tap. Would not stay in the group sites again!

|Nice campgrounds and beautiful views, lots of trees, but not much for beach. I would recommend the walking trails. (posted: 2005)||Gold|
|Comments (2007): I would recomend this park to anyone with a family as there is lots to do, from swimming in their outdoor & indoor pool, paddle boating/canoing on their lake, horseback riding, minigolfing, great bike/hiking paths and it's a very pretty and clean park, full of trees and hills (unusual for Sask.)They have been upgrading it this year as well (2007). (posted: 2007)||Gold|
|Danielson||This is a place for RV camping, not tenting. There is no tree coverage so no privacy and no shade. The people are very nice, the water is all drinkable, and lots of deer. But it's hard to feel like you're camping when your tent is up next to the picnic table it the middle of a field.
|Has potential. Service centres and out-houses very clean-the beach MUST be maintained to have more families utilize park-not all want to have to drive to Visitors Centre to go to beach-better playground for kids and trees planted. We like that it is not commercialized but use what is there-ie. beach (posted: 2004)||Silver|

|Duck Mountain||Having camped here several times, I can not say enough about the way it is maintained. Bathroom facilities are spotless and cleaned on regular basis. Camping spots are large, and mostly even, with lots of trees for shade. Store is a little expensive, but you expect that. Otherwise park staff is extremely helpful!!
|Fantastic lake, for swimming and water sports! The golf course is a true test, and is in great shape. Friendly people and a quiet atmosphere with plenty of wildlife to see and enjoy. Not many places can match it. Truly paradise.

|Echo Valley||The best part about this park is that they have different areas geared towards different types of campers (RV vs tenting). The sites are well shaded and quite private but it does have a reputation as a party place. It was very quiet when I was there, so maybe the increased patrols are helping or don't visit on a long weekend. The other major problem was the ticks, so watch out in the early season. Other than that it was a very pleasent place to visit with extreamly friendly staff and close to the city. There is a large beach and mini golf. (posted: 2004)||Silver|
|We have gone to this park several years in a row and the kids never get bored with the place. The fishing is good enough to keep going back and you are close enough to Mission and Katepwa that you can try those too. (posted: 2005)||Gold|
|You go camping to have fun with family and friends, but here you get treated like crap from the park officials to campsite attendants. They weren't all bad but these park officals can sure ruin your trip in a hurry! especially one in paticular. Quiet time is at 11:00, I respect that, thats not a problem. But we couldnt do anything quiet time means quiet down. She made us turn everything off and go to bed. This lady paroller and her partner hid in the bushes beside our campsite at 11:15 to wait for us to play acoustic guitar by the fire quietly. My wife caught them in the bushes when she went to the washroom. They had the dumbest looks on there faces. If you need to hide in bushes inside someones campsite to see if there making noise, we obviously aren't very loud. HOW CAN YOU MAKE CAMPERS GO TO BED AT 11:00PM. I have never felt so disrespected in all my life! I KNOW ECHO HAS HAD PROBLEMS IN THE PAST BUT I AM NOT A 16 YEAR OLD OF CONTROL TEENAGER. WE TREATED WITH DISRESPECT FROM THE MOMENNT WE PULLED IN THE PLACE, BY BOOKING OUR CAMPSITE OUT, AND THEN BY A POWER HUNGRY PATROL OFFICER!! It makes me sick thinking about how I wasted my holiday in this place. I will never be back at all ever! (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|Wet Wood !! Wet Wood! Like cover your wood at least. Poor officials. bad staff. double book campsites. will not be back. Very nice campground too bad it has to ruined by staff. (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|If you are from out of town and thinking about coming and staying at this location think again! It is a beautiful park but if you want to have a conversation by the fire any later than 11:00 you mine as well forgetabout it. My wife and I were sitting by the fire and the wardens came and told us to shut it down for the night and go to bed! I asked them why and they told us not to start talking back or they will call the cops. This is not uncommon, as many of our friends have been dealt with the same way. We now go out of our way just not to visit this location. They may as well shut this park down and build houses here as well or divide it into a trailer park and dress the wardens up like MR. Leahy and Randy to be the trailer park supervisors. (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|Park officials hiding in bushes harassing campers, scared the crap out of me!! They shine there flashlight on you and ask what your doing and where your going!! JUST GOING TO THE WASHROOM OFFICER MAYBE I SHOULD JUST PEE IN MY CAMPSITE!! I'll scratch this place off my list of good campgrounds. (posted: 2009)||Gold|
|Park official harass campers!! Power Hungry officials. Park officials come around all day every few minutes staring in to all the campsites waiting to give tickets. It's unreal. I Don't recommend.
|If you would like to have a relaxing weekend and cheap vacation getaway don't come here. You'll wind up possibly getting a ticket for something rediculous when you leave and be miserable when its time to go back to work. DON'T WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY AND VACATION TIME HERE! Go to Buffalo Pound/Rowans Ravine anywhere else. (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|Worst campground I have ever been to. The grounds are beautiful, but the staff are disrespectful and treated us like criminals while we were there. Other comments on here are correct about them being out of line, and power hungry. It was a horrible experience. If you like to sit around the fire and chat with your close friends/family...DON'T GO HERE. (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|Agreed! (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|NEVER GO HERE!!!!! Seriously, if you want a nice camping experience avoid this lake. The conservation officers will ruin it for you because they don't seem to realize that camping should be fun. There is a certain conservation officer with major bangs and a stick up her *** . Guess she didn't make it as a cop. That's OK, she phoned them on us when she was finished shining her flashlight in our faces and telling us we needed to go home. I didn't think that was very nice of her. When I told her that, she explained it was her job. So it is her job to not be very nice, so unless you would like to be interogated on your camping trip by Pinky and The Brain, I would suggest going somewhere else. Too bad because the park is very nice and there are lots of trees. But I think Pinky and Brain do what they try to do every night; TRY TO TAKE OVER THE CAMPSITE. Other peeps are saying the same thing. I should have read this stuff before I decided to sit around the fire past dark and crack my third can of lite beer. Never going back to Echo- ever.

|Emma Lake||We have recently moved to the Prince Albert area, and have discovered the Emma Lake provincial recreation site. We very much enjoy this campground, and the lake is a recreational boaters dream. Great time, lots to do, give it a try. One word of warning however, THE FIREWOOD is awful! Wet, big, old knotty, un-split wood. You would have to be a heck of a boy scout to get the stuff burning. So if you are able, throw some of your own "decent" wood in the back of your truck. Or maybe if were lucky someone from the park will read this and take the necessary measures to make this excellent park even better by providing proper firewood.
Devin and Cindy Bueckert, Shellbrook, Sk
|Thank You!!! Someone must have taken my above comment from last year seriously, because the wood situation was much improved. Spent about 3 weeks at this park this past summer, it was once again great. I would like to commend the park security for the excellent job they did on the July long weekend. Their was literally hundreds partiers that tried their best to ruin the weekend for us serious campers, but the security along with the R.C.M.P. didn't put up with any crap, and did a superb job of controlling the masses. If you were there to party you were out, no questions asked. Way to go guys and gals, glad to see that precedent set.
Emma Lake is awesome!!

|Just visited Good Spirit for the first time last weekend for some X-country skiing. Very frustrating trying to find where the trails were. Not a single brochure or sign anywhere! We ended up at the store south of the park where the guy happened to have the information we needed. Trails in very poor condition until we reached the shelter. Absolutely chewed by deer. (And about the deer, you've got too damn many! Isn't it unlawful to feed wildlife, because many of the residents with cottages in the park are doing just that. For a Natural Environments park to be so obviously altered by humans is a misnomer at best, and complete and total abuse at worst.) Trails were also badly blown in. Not sure when they were last groomed. It could be there had been high winds the day before we were there. We were pleased with the condition of the warm up shelter and since it appeared that others have had a great experience at Good Spirit, we'll return to try it out another day. But fix the freaking signage! (posted: 2004)||Bronze|

| it is AWESOME for children and everyone!! the water is calm and peaceful most days and the water is just right to cool off in but not too cold! the lake also has a nice sandy bottom so you don't hit too many rocks. The park also has many picnic table and a playground that are very nice and the mini-golf course is awesome! The park also offers paddle boat rides and stuff so it's great! I would recommend this park to anyone!!!
|it was AWESOME!!!!! The water was perfect and the park had so much to offer, such as the playground, mini-golf, hiking, beach volleyball, paddle boating, good food and soft beaches along with a beautiful lake! I'm definitely going again in the near future!!
|It's an AWESOME park!! The beach and water are always nice and clean, the park always looks good, and the most of the camping sites are really nice!
|It has lots of GREAT things to offer like, good trails, mini-golf course, super stores with really good food, beach volleyball, retals, playground, fun activities for children all ages, and LOTS more!

|We've always enjoyed Good Spirit; warm, shallow water, clean sandy beach and good amenities.

"Sunnyside" and "Gunns" used to be beautiful. What's up with allowing all the wild shrubs, grasses, and weeds to grow. Why can't the Gov't of Sask. realize that the sandy beach is a beautiful place for little children and families,...but no they have chosen to let it go...to the wildlife????? Hello!!! Learn to keep the beach areas beautiful for the people and the north west side can be kept for the wildlife preservation. Not at all impressed with the Sask. Gov't.
|Camper this past weekend at Good Spirit. Very dissapointed the park has knocked down old trees and has just left them were they fall. Looks like a war zone. We have camped here for 30 years and cannot believe how they have let it go.It was one of the most beautiful treed campground in Sask. but not anymore (posted: 2010)||Bronze|

|Greenwater Lake|| Greenwater is the best! the fishing is superb, the snowmobile trails are great, and there is always something to do! The people are very friendly, and the camping sites are the best.
|Well it's the park that keeps on making us come back for more. I've been going to Greenwater since I was a tiny one. (Many years ago!) There is only 2 negative things I can think of in regards to this park firstly the reservations for campgrounds. We always camp on Lakeshore and we just started reserving a site for the past 2 years and every year we come our site has been lent to another camper. Unlike us we reserved that certain campground and had to pursue other accommodations for the next 6 days we were there (not happy about that). When we reserve spots it's reserved for a reason so we don't travel 4 hours to get there and our site being gone. The other one was the firewood. Hey I come from a farming background and lit many a fire and the wood there, well we had to travel back to our home town (farm) that is 1 1/2 hrs away to gather dry pieces of firewood from my dad's junk wood pile and haul it back up to the lake. That's not my idea of "gathering wood! The wood there is knotty which is super hard to split, wet and super GREEN!!! No one will be eating over the fire with that kind of wood! Above and beyond these complaints yet we come back year after year and there's a reason we're being pulled that way for our 6 day camping experiences!!! So we'll surely be seeing you this summer and hopefully if anything gets better or changes to the positive is the reserving a site. The wood, well we've done it year after year and managed to survive with the fire, if any at all, out there. I guess that's what fire started is for!................ Seeing you soon

|(2004): The beach and scenery were beautiful, but the store staff and rental staff were absolutely rude. I rented a paddle boat for myself and children, and the fiberglass bottom was all broken ( I don't even think this boat was up to safety standards ) does anyone know who to call regarding safety standards of rental equipment? When I tried to paddle the boat the seats lifted up and water came in the boat!! By the time we figured out how to steer the boat and got back to the launch to complain they said our time was almost up anyway!! I would not recommend renting from this place. The only employee who was good to us was the cleaning staff ( thank you for your kindness) I know the summer of 2004 was slow for tourism, but at least treat the tourist who did come brave the rain and cold with a little kindness, Our trip next year will be out to Madge Lake( Duck Mountain) they treat their guests wonderful there! I will definately not return to Greenwater, and do not recommend it to anyone, unless you are not planning on talking to any staff!
|Nice lake but it was poorly looked after. Loud parties each night and green fire would that is not covered. I would return if I knew that the park was going to be looked after. All the road kill laying around for days was not appealing. (posted: 2005)||Bronze|

|Comments (2006): We stayed in the 3 bedroom, 2 story rental log cabin and it wasn't the best. The floors in the kitchen had all old wax very digusting walking in bare feet. And quite a few light bulbs were burnt out. Under the couch is gross i saw beer bottle caps, fuzz, you name it. The carpet in the living room has huge spark holes from the fireplace some were even 6-10 feet from the fireplace every time i went there was even more and we been going every year since 2003. Also that one old lady working at the store is a total BITCH (pardon my french). She wouldn't say anything nice. We later went on the paddle boats and steering is terrible we got stuck in the seaweed around the island in the marina a few times they should clean it out. And then we went on the rental trampoline and $6.00 for 15 min. of jumping around. The whole park is a rip-off. (posted: 2006)||Bronze|

|I've been to Lac La Ronge a few times and it's a place that has so much natural beauty and history that it makes you feel so overwhelmingly free...best feeling in the world!! Not a care for miles...makes you realize and respect how Northern Saskatchewan is illuminating in itself!!
|This place is totally awesome.... and I mean that in the true sense of the word. Breathtaking beauty that leaves you in awe of mother nature. If you have never been here, you have to plan your next camping trip to any one of the lakes around La Ronge. Let it show you what Saskatchewan really has to offer. You will not believe the tranquil, serenity of northern Saskatchewan. P.S. - the fishing was fantastic!! Facilities next to none. (posted: 2004)||Gold|

|This is our absolutely favorite provincial park. The fellow campers in the Kimball/Grieg Lakes campgrounds are wonderful people, so quiet and pleasant. The campground is well maintained and there are many services and things to do. The beach is phenomenal!!!! Playgrounds are fantastic! Dutch Treat minigolf is highly rated by our very experienced mini-golfing children. Great nature trails and places to bike. Truly a getaway from the city, very down to earth. Little Raspberry Lake is a super day trip for kids to explore the great outdoors. (posted: 2005)||Gold|
|Comments (2006): Kimball Lake is simply the best. We love going there and hate to leave. The store owner is fantastic and is so helpful in all aspects. To lending you tools and lending you the phone to phone for vehicle repairs. The people you meet become friends for life. The golfing in Good Soil is the best I have seen in a long time. The club house is beautiful and the food fantastic.
Overall I and my family have a great time every time we go. If I had a complaint it would be the road driving into the park, it can be quite tough on your vehicle and unit. Also I would like to see the bathrooms in Kimball Lake tiled to cut down on the mold. The new washers and dryers are most appreciated. (posted: 2005)||Gold|

|This park is an EXCELLENT place for a family outing. There's a ton of stuff to do that'd you would never get bored. First let me say I love the showers - hot water with on off taps - not those silly push button thingys that stop after 5 seconds (like at Good Spirit Lake). The grounds are well kept and clean. The beach area starts with a beautiful grassy area (well trimmed) that you can play frisbee. A great playground overlooks the beach too. I believe the weekends have a flee market at the beach parking lot too. Other great amenities are mini-golf, tennis, great golf-course (breathtaking view at the golf house), waterslides, casino, movie theatre, paved walking trail to beach area from campground, plenty of firewood and a great confectionary/beach store/mini-restaurant (that place has EVERYTHING - a little pricey but what do you expect - Wal-mart). Anyway, if you plan to go to one place this year for camping - look no further than Moose Mountain. I guarantee it is the best campground in Saskatchewan - bar none.
|I love this place!!! Me and friends and family have been going there for years and i will alway's go back.I love how they have so much for you to do it's awesome!!!!

|Comments (2006): I love this place! I've been here every summer since I was born. I even lived in Ontario for three years and made a point of visiting Kenosee Lake then too! It's a great place, friendly people, an all around good time. (posted: 2006)||Gold|
|Narrow Hills||The Fishing is terrible, but they will tell you it's good to get you to come out there. Was not impressed at all.
|Have been to this park many times. It is very peaceful and quiet. There are so many beautiful lakes. Have had success many times fishing for different species of fish. The one of the nices parts about this park is that if it is windy you can always find a smaller lake close by to try your luck. And if the fish are not biting you can try another lake near by.
|Great fishing. 40+ trout/day. Nice lodging (posted: 2004)||Gold|
|Beautiful country, peaceful, clean, fresh air. Lots of hiking. Lots of wildlife. Fishing has always been good. We go there every year and find it hard to leave! Great place for someone that enjoys "wilderness" camping too.
|great fishing, lots of wildlife, perfect place to disappear into the wilderness for a couple of weeks or just a weekend. highly recommend the gem lakes.
|I went there when I was three. I still remember it. It has really nice CO's and nice camping spots anyone who is looking for a place to camp it is my favorite place I've ever gone!!...and i go camping every weekend in the summer. (posted: 2004)||Gold|

|Pike Lake||Great park for the kids. Excellent swimming pool and waterslide! Camp sites are large and easily accessible, even for large trailers they have plenty of pull through sites. Good roads all the way from Saskatoon to Pike Lake. Moon Lake golf course is nearby as well. Don't expect much for fishing. Playgrounds are a popular spot.

|We have a cabin at Pike Lake. The park itself is wonderful, with lots to do for the kids and it is very well maintained. We have a neighbor, however that has destroyed his cabin and his yard with mounds and mounds of junk. We have repeatedly requested that his yard get cleaned up, and we have seen absolutely no improvement. I have even phoned the office in Regina, and while they were verbally supportive, they are not willing to help. This yard would be condemned immediately in the city. We love going to this lake but they need to support the cabin owners better.
|We just got back from spending a few days of camping there with our family...they had hugs sites and we were able to share 3 sites between all of us...the pool was great and we all had fun there...we did find a few problems...the first was ANTS...no matter were we put up our tents we seemed to be on another ant hill...they were everywhere...and the showers were so annoying...it was so hard figuring out how to keep the shower on long enough to get clean...that was one complaint our whole family had...but on the whole it was a great site...and nice and close to Saskatoon.
|I live by pike lake and I highly recommend this park because even though I have lived there for seven years there is always something new to do. (posted: 2004)||Gold|
|Comments (2005): I live close to the park. After about 6 tries to get an electrical site I gave up. Looks like a permanent crowd stays at the park all summer, so not many sites become available. Lack of a reservation system requires most visitors to drive a long distance to discover they lucked out. Creating additional sites would mean a considerable improvement, but bureaucracy moves in mysterious ways, so that is not likely to happen soon.

|This lake is horrible. If you like bad service and lippy teenage workers, disgusting washroom and shower facilities, being placed in a spot with a grumpy neighbor or a spot that is to small for your camper then go here. If not consider somewhere better. Better yet go to a Regional Park and save yourself the headache! To bad I can't rate this less than Bronze!! (posted: 2009)||Bronze|
|We spend a week here in the summer every year. It's close enough to Saskatoon that I can commute to work while the wife and kids stay at the park and play in the pool and hike the trails. (posted: 2013)||Gold|
|Prince Albert National Park||Better than any park in ALBERTA! we go every long weekend during spring, summer and fall.
|Waskesui Lake. For a commercialized park VERY IMPRESSIVE! I couldn't get over how clean and beautiful it is and the people were very friendly. Paths to walk/jog, shopping available. I prefer going further north and "Camping" but this place is great for a quick weekend. Get-away or for someone that prefers cabins, showers etc.
|I have only been there a couple of times in the last few year. And I will never go back. To over populated. To busy of a place. The park itself is not bad. If you want to get away from the rat race of the city this is not the place to go.
|(2004): One of my favorite places in the world. Perfect place to get away from it all. Yes it is commercialized but there are tons are areas where you can be alone too. Holds a very special place in my heart. (posted: 2004)||Gold|
|Comments (2006): As a first time visitor, was most impressed. The beaches were awesome and many on the far side were wonderfully unpopulated. Campsite was sheltered and grassy. Too bad its so far from HOME. (posted: 2006)||Gold|

|Rowan's Ravine||(2004): It's the nicest place I ever seen! (posted: 2004)||Gold|
|I went out last year a lot to the site (2004) and I had a blast. The sites are very nice with lots of trees. The bathrooms are very tidy, and made camping that much more pleasant. The mini golf course is a little run down, but is still a lot of fun to spend an hour or so. The lake is beautiful, perfect for swimming and boating, haven't checked out the fishing yet, that will be this years task. The resturant their is very good, and the staff is awesome (they have really good icecream!!!) Just outside the park is a little convience store with everything that you need, staff is also very nice. Out side the park, there are lots of places to drive to, I got bored one afternoon, so were drove around and went to old houses, towns and visted a couple of restaurants. I would recommend this park to anybody!!! I loved it!!! (posted: 2005)||Gold|
|Comments (2006): I was very disapointed in the comfort stations of this part the are very unkept. They are full of bugs,spiders and mould, overall they are not kept very clean at all. The shower houses are in the same condition. Perhaps the should put some molded showers in there, they would be so much easier to clean. They don't even wash the wall in the showere houses and the bug guts are there for days and I'm sure even weeks. This park washrooms/shower housed were the most disgusting that I have ever seen and I have been to my fair share of provincial parks. (posted: 2006)||Bronze|
|Comments (2006): I was just at Rowans this past weekend. It is a very nice place with a lot to do and see. For the most part I had a great time, except for when it came to having a shower. Their showers are disgusting. They are not cleaned very well at all and they were always out of hand soap and toilet paper. This place really needs to clean up their act. Every year I come here and every year the bathrooms and showers get worse. Perhaps their staff need to clean the entire bathroom, not just the floors, sinks and toilets! I was scared to even turn on the lights, let alone touch the wall by accident. Either that or they need do make some of the sites full service so people can use their own bathrooms and showers.

|St. Victor Petroglyphs||no comments (posted: 2004)||Silver|
|Comments (2006): This place was so quiet and beautiful. When you stand near the cliff carving on the hilltop and look out, it's a view of eternity. You just have to take the 2nd path that goes up to the highest hilltop in order to see the carvings (behind a fence). The camping ground there, Sylvan -- (regional park), didn't look too hot, though, I don't think they have any showers. Just go for the view of the petroglyphs and the vista. (posted: 2006)||Gold|

|The Battlefords||This park may not be the best, but it sure is a fun place to spend with your friends. Every summer we go camp and have a blast. That's why you should go there and you'll have so much to tell your children about your past.
BATTLEFORDS PROVICIAL PARK RULES, BABY!!!
|Great Park. Well treed sites, gorgeous beach with park surrounding it. I go every year just after the May long, have it almost to myself. It fills up after schools out & gets a tad overrun with kids. If you are traveling with kids, that can be a bit of a turn off. I have tented & trailer'd here & its great for both.
