Three wells: the water hydrant behind the Trading Post is drinkable water and has a hose to enable filling water jugs/ RVs. The other two have hand pumps. No water access at the sites.
No power is available at the sites; however, there are electrical outlets in the washrooms at the Trading Post. We generate our own power on-site. When the generator is off for regular maintenance, there is no power. Signs will be posted to alert you to these times. Bring your flashlights!
Accepted, but with a $4.00 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 (at any time) can ruin a pleasant day for fellow campers; please keep your pet on a leash in the campground and pick up after them.
Available at the Trading Post. You are also welcome to bring your own (as long as it is from Alberta). It is illegal to collect deadwood in Kananaskis.
