SASKATCHEWAN BACKCOUNTRY GPS MAPS
Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Prairies, Saskatchewan contains some of Canada’s most unique landscapes and opportunities for outdoor adventure. Best known for its rolling prairies and farmland, Saskatchewan ripples with diverse topography from lodgepole pine forests to the majestic rock of the Canadian Shield. Beyond the city centres of Regina and Saskatoon, small communities dot the landscapes of Saskatchewan, giving over to stunning wilderness in a province dominated by nature. In the north, far past Regina and Saskatoon, a series of lakes and rivers create an aquatic paradise rich with adventures for the Saskatchewan paddler. While touring the provincial and national parks of Saskatchewan, you are bound to fall in love with the peaceful scenery set amidst its ever-distant horizon. Saskatchewan invites you to canoe, cycle, hike, snowmobile or ride to your heart’s content.
Backroad Mapbooks’ Saskatchewan GPS Maps provide you with the most technologically-advanced and user-friendly option for outdoor recreation today. With all the detail from the original Saskatchewan Backroad Mapbook brought to life via GPS, the Saskatchewan GPS Maps allow you to explore the area’s topography with shaded relief, 3D views, and the highest level of map detail available for recreational use. In addition to detailing Saskatchewan’s topography and extensive road systems, your GPS maps include a wealth of information on outdoor recreation available at your fingertips, including marked and labeled trails, campsites, paddling routes, activity and geographic points-of-interest, Wildlife Management Areas, and much more. Developed in cooperation with local agencies, including government, parks, forestry, and tourism, these Garmin-licensed Saskatchewan GPS maps (compatible with Garmin GPS and Garmin Basecamp) are your most reliable source for navigating the lands from Regina to Saskatoon and the backcountry beyond.

Unique to the Backroad GPS Maps are our enhanced road classifications that help you distinguish the highways from the logging roads and the main roads from the side roads. This extra level of road classification helps you to know which roads can be driven in a car and which ones should be left to a four-wheel drive vehicle or ATV. In addition, we offer more recreational points and symbols than any other map source. From RV accessible to backcountry campsites, hiking to snowmobiling trailheads, fishing to paddling access points, we have your adventure covered. Our area classifications include mines and gravel pits, conservation and restricted areas, and a host of other features that help you to see where you can play.
More Roads and Trails
No other GPS map source has as many roads or trails as the Backroad GPS Maps, and we have the statistics to prove it. In addition, you will find we offer better road classifications to help you distinguish main industrial or logging roads from those rarely travelled side or unclassified roads. Further, we separate trails into multi-use for hikers, bikers, horseback riders, cross-country skiers and more, as well as ATV/motorized trails and snowmobile trails. This information is continually updated, expanded and refined, so be sure to take advantage of our update program.
