We stayed here for a week during the Rugby week and after reading some reviews I was not expecting much, but in saying that it still was the worst campground I have been to! There was a constant smell of raw sewerage at our camp site, when we talked to the handyman about it he said there was nothing he... More

Upon check-in, there were two middle-aged, blonde women working at the front desk. Both terribly rude. We had requested to be placed at a site close to the washroom, but not too close to the entrance and that seemed to have been an issue for them. They weren't helpful or accomandating whatsoever and were so quick to suggest to us... More

Hello Again! Thanks for your review. The two blonde women working at our reservation desk have 30 years of tourism and customer service experience between them. We regularly receive wonderful feedback regarding both of them. The other two ladies we have working at the reservation desk add another combined 20 years of experience. As I mentioned on your other review,... More

We were there during Stampede week and I have to say that I should've just stayed at a Walmart parking lot instead of at this place! It's very poorly kept, with areas looking more like dump grounds (old tires, rusty metal parts, etc.) than a family campground. The sites are RIDICULOUSLY small, to a point in which we had to...

Thanks for your input. We appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you feel. There is an area on this property used for storage of repair supplies, firewood, scraps that people abandon here that cannot be sent to the landfill (ie. someone changes their tires, then leaves them for us to deal with instead of having...

We were in desperate need of a camping site near Calgary, would you believe we found very few places online. Note to others, do your research prior to heading out on a road trip and find your campgrounds along the way, as we were in the middle of Calgary traffic trying to find a campground near Calgary and ended up...

Hello, and thanks for taking the time to let us know how your stay with us was! There is certainly a shortage of campgrounds in the Calgary area, and none right inside the city. Because of this shortage it certainly pays off to plan ahead. I'm pleased, though not surprised, to hear that our staff was friendly and accommodating. Regarding... More

Hello Lorraine, Thanks for your review - I only wish you'd have said something while the problem was occurring. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy regarding illegal drug usage in all public areas of the park. We don't even permit open alcohol consumption in the public areas - we have numerous families and small children around the park at any... More

Spent three nights here simply out of desperation. Read several reviews so pretty much knew what to expect but due to the long weekend we had to bite the bullet. I guess based on the fact that they were the ONLY campground available and the fact that they had SEVERAL sites available, we should have known exactly what we were... More

Thanks for your input. I do have several comments to address here, so let's get started: - We, in fact were not the only campground available - I personally called the closest Calgary campground nearest to us to see if there was a spot for you when the difficulties with your group began shortly after your arrival. They had a... More

This was the only RV Park we could find on short notice, and there's a reason for it. Many people living there in their trailers, and it was simply just a bit creepy. Breaker kept blowing (30 amp max), but the young man that worked there was very responsive. This could be a nice park with a major facelift and... More

Hello, Thanks for your review. You are right, we do have some long-term customers. Many are Canadians who live elsewhere but come to Alberta for work, and send their hard-earned paychecks home to their families. I'm not sure what's creepy about that, and wonder what your suggestions for improvement with this would be. We already have a maximum stay of... More

Small spaces , no parking, firepit is useless and full of cigarette butts and a couple diapers. Neighbouring sites enjoy stepping around your toilet hose and you'll need over 20 feet of itand if your neighbour has slides you can't use one side of picnic table. Other than high prices the staff is very friendly

I was traveling with a group and we stayed for 3 nights. The best thing about this campground is the location. It's on the east side of Calgary, very convenient to downtown and easy to get to. The worst thing about this campground is the size of the individual sites. Almost as bad was the garbage - more about that... More

Hello, Thanks for your review. We are in the midst of working towards changing some of the sections of the park around to accommodate the sizes of today's RV's - which are much larger than they were 27 years ago when we were built. We've added a new 50-amp and 30-amp section to the park, with wider, longer sites. We... More
