Saskatchewan Ups Provincial Camping Fees
People who come from other provinces to camp in Saskatchewan provincial parks will pay more to the Saskatchewan government this year, according to CBC.ca.
The province announced Thursday (March 4) it's boosting a variety of fees — and lowering or eliminating others — resulting in extra $1 million going into the government's coffers.
Starting immediately, camping permits for non-residents will go up by $4 a night for non-electrical sites and $6 a night for electrical sites.
In addition to the funds going to the province's general revenue fund, the changes will raise an extra money for a fund that covers parks, campgrounds and recreational facilities.
The fee and charge changes are "primarily" to cover costs, the provincial government said in a news release.
