With summer almost in the rear view mirror, Buffalo Pound officials are reminding us that the park can still be utilized in the fall and even winter seasons.

"The reservation part of it for us September 30th marks the end our camping season, we go into an entirely self registration system after the end of September," said Park Manager Dave Bjarnason. "At the end of October we still do have camping that is available for anyone who does wish to camp in the cooler months and even through the winter."

Many summertime staff members out at Buffalo Pound are university students and are typically in charge of planning and facilitating programs and activities, which is why things have seemed to slow down at the park recently.  

"There's still a lot of self directed stuff, we will still have staff in the park office for any inquiries that might come up. The trails and everything are still in very good shape, mountain biking is certainly a very popular recreational activity we have in the park. September is a month that we've really seen an increased visitation."

Bjarnason noted that in the past online registration had typically ended after the Labour Day long weekend, but this year they've extended it to make it more convenient on those wishing to head to the lake. 

"Campers that are coming or are interested in coming out to Buffalo Pound Provincial Park can now book their sites online for specified areas within the park. A lot of the park will still be a first come first serve on a self registration system, but we will be having areas of the park that are available to be booked much as it was the case through the summer."

He added that year over year they've seen a greater number of visitors throughout the month of September, as some people enjoy the changing colours of the leaves on trees, along with the peace and quiet as it's much slower this time of year.
