First off do you want to go straight east or dip south a bit? If you're going east:
You're going to encounter a lot of traffic towards Red Deer on highway 11. I would suggest traveling south towards Olds. From there go north towards Stettler. From there go east on 12 to Sask border. This will turn into highway 51. Turn south on highway 4, passing through rosetown. From there I would hit highway 15 to Melville. From there you might have to take some farm roads, as the only other viable alternative is highway 16 into Manitoba.
I would strongly avoid highway 9 Alberta/highway 7 Saskatchewan, as this is the main artery between Calgary/Saskatoon. Plus this section is pretty desolate area. I've driven that road hundreds of times, and it never gets better.
Another option is to go south on highway 11 to highway 22. The problem with this direction is you might forced to jump on hwy 1 for a long
time until you hit medicine hat. The advantage is you get to go through Cypress hills eventually.
I personally love highway 13 (south of Cypress)in Sask, as it would take you clear across the south of Saskatchewan to Man.
Check here for camping in Saskatchewan:
I don't know anything about Manitoba, as I have never driven through there myself. AB/SK are my backyard.
