“Bow valley provincial park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful scenery and fantastic camp sites. Heat shows at night for the kids. Could use a good interpretive center for kids and don't stay too close to the river, the train goes by several tomes a day and is loud

“Not just for camping.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Two campgrounds have a variety of sites with electrical hookups, and comfort stations with showers and flush toilets, but there is more to the park than just camping.

Areas for a picnic, a number of trails for hiking, a paved path for bicycle riding, and down on the shores of the Bow River, a location for fishing. Middle Lake, Many Springs Lake and the Bow River provide classic views of Yamnuska, the 'wall of stone", Mount John Laurie.

This park just into K-country has many pathways along the Bow. Beautiful setting with Yamnuska to the north. Take your camera.

“Beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011 via mobile

The bow valley is absolutely beautiful. If driving take the old bow valley parkway rather than the new road.
