The West Bloc is a 5; the East Bloc a 1. Hence my rating of a 3. The West Bloc is simply fabulous. Great hikes, reasonable camping. Note that camping/RV sites are very limited so reservations are recommended. The 'overflow' camping site is enormous. The East Bloc is a construction zone. Park staff claim there is 'primitive' RV camping but... More

My hubby and I stayed at Grasslands for one night in June 2016, and it was absolutely fantastic. Grasslands National Park was just one stop of many on a cross-country tour (Guelph to Vancouver Island and back) that we did over the course of 3 weeks. Grasslands had not been included in our original plans, but I am so glad... More

We stayed in a teepee at the Grasslands park and we loved it. There were wooden benches all along the side of the very large teepee. You can rent a cot but we slept on our pads with our sleeping bags. There was a gas grill that's shared by the 3 teepees but only one other teepee was occupied- with... More

Recently I had the pleasure of traveling in southern Saskatchewan to take pictures. What an enjoyable tour. The roads are no hell, but the photographic opportunities more than make up for it, and the people I had the pleasure of conversing with were top drawer. In an ever changing world it's one of the places you might want to check... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Grasslands National Park in southern Saskatchewan and were very pleasantly surprised. This is a park that people definitely are going out of their way to get to and it showed, judging by the number of visitors on the day we were there. It seemed that we were alone most of the time, except for... More

We called to make sure which time zone they were in. I was told 'yes we are in central mountain time zone'. Didn't make sense so we took the chance and drove there. They were open but closing soon. It was a small visitor center but filled with lots of information. The drive there and back gave us plenty of... More

Grasslands NP is one of the few places left on the prairies where the ecology is reasonably intact. It is spectacularly beautiful as well. Prepare for the conditions, and go.

This National Park is a diamond in the rough. It is full of interesting wildlife such as Bison, Prairie Dogs, Antelope, Burrowing owls, and a variety of birds. We sat and watched the Prairie dogs for several hours. It is so peaceful and there is great hiking. If you want serene, visit Grasslands National Park
