Prince Albert National Park because it’s time for camping! Yes, Waskesiu in Saskatchewan is beautiful. It’s a little far from us, being about 7 hours towing, yet worth the visit.

We took Tipsy, our 1972 Boler, on this trip. Okay, let’s get camping.

We set up camp in no time. Takes us about 20-30 minutes total from the time we find our site until we’re set up and ready to relax.

Last year we got the 10×10 canopy tent since we were camping in Fernie, British Columbia and we wanted to be sure we could keep Lily out of the sun. Little did we know we’d use it on a more regular basis for ourselves when we were camping.

It’s keeps us dry, and also helps keep the picnic table dry when there is rain overnight.

Plus, unlike the awning that pops out from the side of your trailer, you can move this one around. I think if we had an awning, we’d still have a tent, too.

Tipsy loves camping – or rather, we love camping with Tipsy.

Fires make for rustic and flavourful food. One of the best parts about national park camping is the fire permit. It’s $8.80 per day and you get unlimited wood (yet we’re reasonable, of course). It’s worth it especially when we cook with fire for each meal.

We ate well and then ventured on a beautiful hike.

At home in the woods. Canada is so beautiful.

Overall, Lake Waskesiu in Prince Albert National Park is worth the visit. We stayed at Beaver Glen Campground (it’s a must) and had some elk as neighbours. Plus, the showers are hot. Beautiful hikes, bright blue skies, and clean fresh air. What more could you want in a camping trip?

Thanks so much for visiting – we’re hitting the road today, too. Heading out to Kootenay National Park for some more hikes and mountain air. See you soon!
