I'm planning a trip from Ontario to the prairies with stops to visit family in Winnipeg, Man., Regina, Melville and Ituna Sask. I've never camped west of Sudbury. I would greatly appreciate suggestions/recommendations from people of places to visit and camp in that part of the world. I'm just now starting to plan but googleing is a poor second to experienced egg campers. Thanks so much...
Do not know if you will make it to Alberta, but there is a UNESCO site there, Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump in Lethbridge where the native americans would corral buffalo to a cliff where they would fall to their demise. Very interesting place.
The National and Provincial Parks we have stayed at in Manitoba have all been pleasant.
In SK you have plenty of spots to choose from - only one National Park in the south (and it doesn't do camping). Provincial Parks info is available online. Again, the standards are ok. There are also Regional Parks - way too many to mention by name.
You might enjoy browsing "A User's Guide to Saskatchewan Parks" by Michael and Anna Clancy. ISBN 978-0-88977-198-7 . You should be able to find it at your Library or bookstore.
Lake Superior Provincial Park Agawa C.G. has great views of the lake. It is a long narrow c.g. between the highway and the lake. You can hear and see the road. It has electrical hookups at some sites but you will need a very long cable at least 50 ft. Has showers and laundry. Camping fees are on the high side > $40. The views of the lake are to die for.
There are numerous private or provincial campgrounds all along highway 17 or a short trip off of it. Most towns have one or more in or nearby. Wawa, Nipigon, Thunderbay, Atikokan are a few that come to mind. Use your friend Google.
