This RV park is well located down by the Bow River near the Centre of Cochrane. Easy access to bike path system and the river bank. The campground was very tidy and well maintained. Friendly, helpful staff, good park for kids and exceptionally clean bathrooms.

This is our 2nd year at BRE, we stayed 4 months last year and 2 months this year. Our rig is a 37 ft MH and since we have 2 ACs and washer/dryer, we want a 50 amps site. This is a very busy park, so if you do not book ahead of time (and some times well ahead) you... More

We only stayed overnight but we found it very quiet and well managed. The sites were large and separated by trees and hedges. The park was very clean and manicured with the gravel raked and the lawns mowed. The road is paved and it looks like they keep it clean and swept of gravel from the sites. A very nice... More

We stayed here for one night as a family with a 30 foot pull behind trailer. The sites are immaculate and the grounds are extremely well maintained. Nice little playground for the kids. Make sure to bring loonies for the showers.

What a difference a year makes! Last year I posted rave reviews on this campground. But we couldn't be more disappointed this year. We returned for a 4 day stay and immediately we noticed that the staff were completely unwilling to help us out or provide any customer service. We purposely booked our stay to start on Thursday so we... More

This is a great place to stay. Pull thru sites. Great in town location. Staff were helpful. The kids play area was clean and well maintained. I found it very quiet there, it was full but people there were great and respectful. They do have park rules and they are great

Nice location, right on the Bow. Very well maintained. There is no organized activities, however, the Spray Lakes Sawmill Arena is right beside and has many activities that cost very little for the entire family. Very short distance from town. 10/ 15 minutes walk to Walmart, Tim Horton, Can Tire, grocery stores and much more. 20 minutes to Calgary (north... More

Very clean and friendly place. Stayed here two nights and it was quiet with a great view of the river. New Walmart and restaurants nearby. About 20 - 30 minutes from Calgary if you like big cities. Enjoyed our stay and would come back in the future.
