Meanwhile, Provincial Parks are continuing to see electrical upgrades at campsites.  Electrical service is being added to campsites at Danielson and Douglas parks along the shores of Lake Diefenbaker, and Echo Valley Park in the Qu'Appelle Valley.  Also, the Rainbow Campground at Cypress will have the existing electrical service improved at 69 campsites.

All of the campsites will be available for campers to use next summer.
