Some call it comfort camping or glamping - we call it Adventure!

Located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Sundance Lodges offers comfort camping in beautiful canvas tipis, comfortable trapper's tents and unserviced campsites. Bring your own camping supplies, or rent from us.  Our campground is forested, quiet, close to many outdoor activities - and is ideal for daytrips to Calgary and Banff. 

We serve fresh hot coffee in the morning and sell basic groceries and gifts in the front of the Trading Post. And, we have hot showers, flush toilets and a coin laundry in the back. 

You may also find the odd bug or insect around your site and on the floor of the tents. After all, they were here first. Although the tipis and trapper's tents are set on a raised floor, the canvas is not fully enclosed. With that said, we hope you'll join us for an adventure!

Tipis

Our beautiful Sioux canvas tipis are hand-painted with native-style designs. Each tipi sits on its own site, surrounded by forest and connected by a winding road to other sites. Guests bring their own bedding and camping supplies or rent from us. Tipis are available mid June to early September

Trapper's Tents

Our cozy, rustic Trapper's Tents, each on their own site and surrounded by trees, are extremely comfortable. Whether it's suntanning weather or raining, you will enjoy sitting on your deck under the shelter of your awning. Some tents have wooden doors; others have zippers.

Campsites

We offer unserviced RV and tent campsites that are well treed and connected to other sites by a winding road. Two tents are allowed on each site with a surcharge applicable for the second item; however, only a few sites can accommodate second medium RVs.

Inside the Tipi: 

  • Wooden floor
  • Wood-frame beds with foam mattresses sealed in vinyl
  • Small kerosene heater and lantern (we supply the fuel)

Outside the Tipi:

  • Picnic table
  • Fire pit with a half-grill (we suggest aluminium foil or an old frypan for use on the grill)

Sizes:

  • Large Tipis, each with one double bed and two single beds (comfortably sleeps four)
  • Small Tipis, each with two single beds (comfortably sleeps two)

Check-In Time: between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Please call if you will be late. We recommend arriving by suppertime to set up camp in the daylight and pick up your camping supply rentals, if booked, at the Trading Post. If you require help lighting your heater or have any questions, you need to notify the Trading Post BEFORE it closes. 

Check-Out Time: by 11 a.m. for Tipis and 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 3 p.m.

We have a total of thirty unserviced sites:

All sites are well-treed and have a picnic table and fire pit with a half-grill for cooking.

RV Size Limit:

We recommend not bringing RVs longer than 39' or, with the tow vehicle, not more than 50'. Although very experienced RV/truck drivers drive larger units around the campground road and can back them into any of the campsites, the majority of drivers will have problems with units larger than stated above.

Only a few campsites can accommodate a second small/medium RV - please confirm that it will fit with the office before booking.

RV Family Group Area:

For three to six RV's who wish to be together in a large open site surrounded by trees with fire pits and picnic tables. Quiet hours still apply. Families and youth groups only.
