Recommended to Bring
Reservations- Strongly recommended, especially for weekends & long weekends. All sites are open for booking; however, we do take drop-ins if we have room. All our reservations are prepaid with cancellation charges after booking.
Water- No water at your site. However, there are 3 wells - two of these are hand pumps. One is a hydrant located hehind the Trading Post that supplies drinking water. It has a hose with which you can fill a water container or an RV.
Dump Station- As we are so close to the river, we do NOT have a station. The closest ones (free) are: Barrier Information Center (10 minutes north on HWY 40) and Mt. Kidd (10 minutes south on HWY 40).
Electricity- No power at your site; however, there is electricity in the washrooms at the Trading Post.
Firewood- Available for purchase at the Trading Post; you are most welcome to bring your own (as long as it isn't from British Columbia - sorry!) It is illegal to collect deadwood in Kananaskis so you must either bring your own firewood or buy it here.
Pets- Accepted with a $2.00 charge per pet/per night. Please respect campers who prefer not to have pets around. Do not leave pets alone at the site when you go hiking or driving - a barking dog can ruin a pleasant afternoon for your neighbours. Pets must always be leashed, well behaved, not taken into the buildings and picked up after.
Check-In Time - between 2:30 pm and 8 pm
Please call if you will be late. We recommend arriving by suppertime, if possible, as this gives you time to set up in daylight, pick up your camping supply rentals, if booked, at the Trading Post, and ask any questions you may have of the staff there (e.g., lighting your heater), before closing time.
Check-Out Time - by 11 am for Tipis & Trapper's Tents
We greatly appreciate guests respecting checkout time as our cleaning staff have a lot to do in order to have the sites ready for new check-ins at 2:30pm.
Quiet Time- between 10:30pm and 8am.. We are a family campground; no "partying" or offensive behavior is permitted at any time. Music and generators must be off at 10:30pm.. Music played during the day must be confined to your campsite.
