Stay And Play in Alberta Campgrounds

Camping and Alberta go hand-in-hand as Alberta’s history is rich with pioneer history. Now you can camp as comfortably or as authentically as you like, whether you’re in a tent or motorhome or glamping in a Tipi, Alberta campgrounds have it all.

1. Smoky Lake Golf Club

If RVs and golf are your things, then this is the spot for you. Their full-service RV park, pro shop with club rentals and air-conditioned clubhouse make for the perfect location to host your golf tournament or just get away for a golf and camp weekend!

2. Rocky Meadows Country Getaway

Amazing camping for groups or individuals!

Enjoy farmyard mini golf, paintball, the seasonal cafe with freshly baked apple pie and homemade jams, or take the kids to the on-site park. There are showers and laundry facilities available so you can get away and soak in the fabulous scenery.

3. Lakeland Provincial Recreation Area

Choose from five different back-country camping areas throughout this provincially-run recreation area. Enjoy campfires to cook your freshly caught fish, take a boat around the lake, or just take in some much-needed relaxation.

There are no modern facilities, as this is for those of you who love to go out ‘roughing it.’

4. Cold Lake Provincial Park

Don’t let the name fool you. Enjoy this gorgeous area year-round — from spending time on the beautiful, sandy beach to taking a sought after fishing trip — all while basking in the glorious surroundings of Northeastern Alberta.

Plus, if you’re coming from the city, you’ll have never seen the Northern lights shine like this.

5. Garner Lake Provincial Park

Now here is a great park (and lake!) to visit in the summer. Take a boat out fishing, get adventurous with waterskiing, or just take in the scenery from the canoe or kayak. Garner Lake Provincial Park offers hiking, camping, volleyball, and mountain biking trails. You’ll definitely not be bored!

6. Howlin’ Coyote Motorcycle Campground

Howlin’ Coyote offers something special for you motorcycle enthusiasts. This is a campground specifically built for motorcycle enthusiasts, and they only offer single or group camping spots for anything that you can haul or load onto a motorcycle!

This is a well-serviced campground with showers and other amenities available — like a covered area for jam sessions and a licensed store for all your camping needs. Enjoy camping with like-minded folks and get ready for adventure and fun (and free firewood!) at Howlin’ Coyote Motorcycle Campground.

7. Lakeland Provincial Park

There’s plenty to do here in the summer. Enjoy hiking, backcountry camping, backcountry canoeing, geocaching, wildlife viewing and so much more. There are even OHV designated trails for those who prefer to experience nature in comfort.

NEW FOR 2018: Comfort camping cabins are available for rental (but they fill up fast), and now there are brand new tipis for you to experience camping like only a few ever have!
