You may want to check ahead with your favourite park before heading out for the May Long Weekend.
Some of the parks are enforcing an alcohol ban.
Of the over 90 Regional Parks, about 25 of them are observing the ban.
The list is available through their website.
Prince Albert National Park is enforcing the ban at Beaver Glen Campground with no possession or consumption of alcohol at the site.
Loreen Friskie with SaskParks says all provincial campgrounds will observe the ban this weekend.
They've been doing it every year since 2006 to make the parks safer.
She says there was getting to be too much vandalism and noise every May Long Weekend, so the ban was put in place.
She also advises it's a good idea to check with your campground on any other issues like reduced services considering its early in the year.
Friskie adds that the new online reservation system is up and running, which means new equipment and operation procedures for staff, so she asks for patience as employees continue to learn the new system.
