Dave Bjarnason, parks manager at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park, said they are about 75 per cent booked up for Saturday, which is their busiest day over the weekend.  

“We’re going to battle the weather a little bit. I think the temperatures will be fine, but it looks like there’s some scattered precipitation, which we will gladly take. It keeps our fire risks minimal." 

There are fire bans in the north of the province, but there is no current ban for those visiting Buffalo Pound Provincial Park. You can find updated information on fire restrictions at Provincial Parks and Rec Sites by clicking here

Alcohol is allowed in the Provincial Park campsites. “Over the past number of years, we just saw a decline in the kind of activity that led to that ban being put in place,” explained Bjarnason about the rules being relaxed last year.  

“We’re looking forward to people coming out – we've got lots to offer,” he added.
