It's going to get a lot easier to boat and sleep at Blackstrap Provincial Park.

Two companies are collaborating to bring a new marina and cabins to the park south of Saskatoon.

"Our province continues to grow and our provincial parks are more popular than ever," said parks minister Kevin Doherty in a news release.

"Private investments like these help to enhance the diversity of services available at our parks."

The two companies are spending $2.6 million.

New features

Blackstrap Marina Corporation is building a 190-slip inland marina at the park. It will be open year-round and also offer fuel and vehicle parking.

Meanwhile, Waterfront Developments is building a dozen new cabins in the park. They will be fully furnished and operate year-round.

Construction will start as soon as possible.
