The Victoria Day long weekend will coincide with the opening of many parks across Saskatchewan for people looking to do some spring camping.

Campsites and the entry gate opened up at noon on Thursday, with Moose Mountain one of the parks now opening their doors.

Moose Mountain Park Manager Kim Brown says there are some options for people who want to go to the park this weekend.

"Today is opening weekend for Saskatchewan provincial parks. Our entry gate and campground are open today at 12:00 PM for those still looking to get away this weekend, Moose Mountain and our other provincial parks still have camping sites available. So if you're looking to plan your trip and book your site, you can visit ("

Some moisture over the week, which is forecasted to continue into this weekend, could be enough to cancel some people's plans.

Brown says that there's plenty of opportunities to head down to the park no matter the weekend.

Also, rain is in the forecast this weekend in the fountain, so if you don't get a chance to come out this weekend, we encourage you to come out sometime this season for camping and experiencing the park. SaskParks is a great way to reconnect with family, friends, and nature while making memories. If you're looking to view all events and programming happening this summer, you can visit the SaskParks website or stop in at your local provincial park offices to kick off this new season."

Moose Mountain will be one of the several parks with programming through the weekend.

"Several of our parks will be hosting programming that encourages discovering more of the park and practicing leave no trace principles. Programming this weekend includes making your own fairy houses, finding clues to solve a mystery using GPS devices, and participating in an award-winning hike. Programs are weather dependent, so please just ensure to check in with your campground office prior to start time to see if the programming is still on."
