Empty sites should not be saved for non ex­is­tent campers

Southwest Booster - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

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.
