This is the second time we've stayed at this campground. The location is perfect without all the restrictions of a national park but all the access to the amenities. The staff are very knowledgeable about the area and campground sites and put us in tenting site 201. Very spacious, well treed and easy access to washrooms. The fire pits are... More

On the plus side the campground is very close to the national park border, meaning you can stay here without a park pass. We had a second car with us so it made it very convenient. The sites are big and the staff is very friendly. On the downside, the sites are very open in the full hook up area,... More

We wanted full hookups so we made a reservation here, paying in advance. The sites are small, with no privacy and no shade. It was dry and dusty but the sprinkler system was leaking and caused a big flood in front of our site - we didn't see anyone trying to fix it, or anything else for that matter. Then... More

Me and my family stayed here and we had a full service lot. Lot 46 and it was probably the biggest full service site there which was awesome. Even tho the full service sites are out in the open there is a river u can literally walk to and non service sites secluded all over the perimeter. Great hiking trails... More

Our family has camped here with a tent trailer 6 or 7 times over the past 10 years. We initially chose it as it has more site privacy available for some spots than the Waterton Townsite RV campground, but also has flush toilets and showers that the "No services" sites in the park are missing. This a great "middle ground"... More

This campground is on 1.2 miles from the entrance of Waterton National Park and has all the amenities. We based out of this family campground for all our activities in the park over a two day period and it was great! The people there are super friendly and most accommodating. We arrived on no notice with two big rigs (... More

We were happy this private campground had space when the park was full... We didn't need much, just a place to pull over and sleep, and they were happy to give us that. The walking trail was nice and the view was spectacular. A great little accidental find!

Staff is excellent. Facilities also excellent. Great place to camp with children as they have room to run and play. Hiking, biking, and fishing as activities one can do. Close to Waterton Park. Looking forward to our next camping trip there.

We had a wonderful week long stay at this campground. They've many different types of sites available depending on how large a tent you have. The family that runs it takes the time to make sure that everyone is a as spaced out as possible to cut down on having any noisy neighbours. They had awesome coin operated showers... they... More

We have camped here several times (tenting and rv). We have had a good experience each time. We have found the showers clean with adequate hot water. You need to purchase tokens to operate the showers and they will buy back any unused tokens. The bathrooms are fairly clean. The playground is outdated but my kids still had fun. Convenient... More
