Wood Mountain Regional Park, Canada

Wood Mountain Regional Park in Saskatchewan, Canada, has little to no light pollution. The park is located 5 miles (8 km) south of the village of Wood Mountain, and 100 miles (160 km) southwest of Regina, in a natural setting amid trees and rolling hills, in the heart of Saskatchewan’s ranch country. Museums and monuments include a Rodeo Ranch Museum, Homestead museum and Sitting Bull monument. A walking trail to Historic Old Post NWMP Museum is located beside the park. “On clear nights, you are able to see for miles from the tallest hills in the area,” an EarthSky friend said.  The park remains open from May to September, daily until 8:30 pm.  Camping is allowed for a fee, with quiet time after 11:00 pm.
