Campground Reservations are now possible in all three prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Over previous years, the campground reservation systems have experienced some significant challenges. In some years, the load on the system on reservation opening day has crashed the websites. In other years, the policies of the government agencies have led to numerous complaints of sites being reserved, but empty, only to be cancelled and unpaid.
Through it all, the reservation systems have improved and adapted and now they are generally regarded as a useful and important part of the provincial campground systems.
