Located off the Trans Canada highway just west of Moose Jaw, Besant Campground is more than just a campground, it has a large and well established picnic area in the south east corner of the park.

Opened in 1963, the park was built specifically to provide camping for travellers on the Trans Canada highway, as park of the Trans Canada Highway Campgrounds and Picnic Areas Program.

In addition to playing host to it's namesake campground, the park also has lush green fields to enjoy and a small beach around a pond for swimming. A disused baseball diamond is also hiding in the south east of the park.

This park has lots of picnic tables, washrooms, and the other amenities you'd expect to find at a campground.
