There is no rush to register, but feel free to anytime. Just hit MENU then Register/Order and follow the instructions. Early registration is in effect until August 4, but you can register right up to the date of the star party, or even at the star party. We are happy to say that the only increase in costs from 2018 to 2019 is a $2 increase in the base registration fee!

HOW to book CAMPING in the MEADOWS

All Meadows campsites are booked through SSSP at the email addresses below or by telephone. You can book your campsite before you register. SSSP will start accepting Campground bookings on April 14 at 9:00 a.m. CST. Email your request to, or or call 306-665-3392. Please request your preferred site number and one or two alternate sites. SSSP will book sites for you in the order that they are requested and you will receive a confirmation by email. To be fair to everyone, campsites are issued on a first-come first serve basis and we WILL NOT take bookings for a specific campsite before April 14. Once you receive an assignment from us, you are booked for Star Party nights, but you can then attempt to book extra nights for your site (before or after star party dates) through Reserve-a-Site starting April 16 at 7:00 a.m. CST. Note that 60% of the most-preferred SSSP campsites booking in the first 48 hours of registration opening. But we do have 108 powered sites and room enough for over 100 overflow (non-powered) campers and tenters, so we can always accommodate you right up to the date of the Star Party. See a full description of camping and campsites and the Camp Map at "Menu | Resort/Camping | Camping in the Meadows".

Starting this year, you will need to present your paid camping receipt in order to pick up your registration package.


Our room block at the Resort runs from Wednesday August 28 through Saturday August 31 (up to four bookable nights). There are a mix of hotel rooms, townhouses (2 and 3 bedroom) and cabins (2 and 3 bedrooms). BOOK YOUR RESORT ACCOMODATION as soon as you can. The official date to release the remaining unbooked rooms is JUNE 16, 2019. We cannot guarantee there will be any rooms available after that date.

Contact the Resort at 306-662-4477. Additional information about the Resort is available at their website.
