Empty sites should not be saved for non existent campers
Editor: It appears to me that an increasing amount of sites at Sask Landing Park are taken up by non-existent campers. By that I mean all the choice camping sites have units in them, but not necessarily people in the campers.
This year it appears that tents have been placed on many sites to hold them until the park officially opens. People visit the park very early inMay, park their camper units (tents) in a choice site, leave them there, and some are left empty most of the summer and some rarely use the facilities of our beautiful park.
I would think that a Provincial Park should be more for recreational use of as many people as possible.
Personally, I prefer the old system of 14 to 21 day stay, followed by vacating the site for a certain period of time, except for the reserve-a-site and seasonal programs.
If anyone has similar concerns, I suggest you write to either of the following people:
Greg Murphy, Associate Deputy Minister, Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sports, 3211 Albert St. Regina SK S4S-5W6 or Mary AnnWihack, Visitor Services and Park Operational Planning, Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sports, 3211 Albert St. Regina SK S4S-5W6.
