Travellers will be amazed with the beauty of the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. Travelling through the prairies, uust half an hour south of the Trans Canada Highway, this high plateau stands above the prairie as an island of cool and moist forest. With its mix of forests, wetlands and grasslands, it is home to an astonishing diversity of plants and... More

It's important to understand that while the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park may be marketed like a national park attraction like Banff it is not the same experience. At a place like Banff or Lake Louise we experienced a diverse community of people who have travelled from all over the US and Canada. It was quiet, people were friendly and you... More

We stayed on the Alberta side of Cypress Inter-provincial Park and loved every minute of it. The camp-ground was clean and very well kept. Our view from our site was actually lake front, it was completely beautiful and was the perfect spot for stargazing. Firerock offers showers, flush and pit toilets and here is where things went a little south.... More

I spent 3 days and nights in this park, in the rain. The roads and pathways were still okay even though there may have been a few larger potholes in the gravel section by the end of the weekend. I am sure glad there was a resort, and some places to get out of the rain. The observatory and Yurt... More

I've been here a few times over the years and always have a great time. I enjoy hiking and there are enough trails that are long enough to get away from the other activities in the park. I love the lodgepole forests, the rolling hills, and the conglomerate cliffs. I've always stayed at the resort and have been happy with... More

The park is nice. But it's more of a resort than camping. That's okay if that's what you're after. I'm not saying the park is bad. Just not really our thing. Expect big trailers/trucks/bon fires/music at night/etc... Maybe next year we'll try the other block that is apparently un-serviced and quieter.

We have been coming to Cypress every summer for many years! It is always a relaxing time. Our kids (now adults) went to the summer camps here in cypress for a number of years as well and made many long lasting friends. There is tons to do here for families. You can swim, golf, hike, go to the beach, canoe... More

Every year for nearly the past 20 years we have made a summer family vacation tradition at Cypress Hills Saskatchewan. There is something for the whole family to do at the park. We stayed in the Terrace Campground which is walking distance to nearly every activity in the park and has a playground (which could be upgraded - it is... More

Several camp sites allow for true camping - no electricity, no cell coverage, no large trailers next door. The area has a couple of lakes for fishing and swimming: Elk Water Lake offers a chance to stock up and go to a beach, but is very cold. The hills are beautiful and privacy abounds. A great Fort is on the... More
