We spent 5 days in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. The varied vegetation, landscape and incredible views make this park unique. The camping was great with nice big treed sights. Facilities are clean and well-kept. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake, hiking the trails, swimming at the beach and in the pool. As well, a visit to the Observatory one night... More

Elkwater Cypress Hills Alberta side : First time visitors. Loved this park for camping! First impressions : Wow ! Very scenic route from the TransCanada Highway to get there. Beautiful big lake, there are some motor boats on the lake making noise. We were very impressed by all the facilities here. Everything is top notch. Buy your firewood on arrival,... More

This is a huge campground with lots to do for families. We were greeted on arrival at the gate by a staff member that was not very knowledgeable. As we havent been here before and there are a few different campgrounds inside the park, we asked if we can possibly change our campsite. The lady at the gate did not... More

We stayed in campgrounds on both the Saskatchewan side and Alberta side. The Saskatchewan side has many things to keep kids happy; trail rides, nice swimming pool, mini golf, snack bars, playgrounds and pond, and the prices are very reasonable. Washrooms on both sides are clean with flush toilets and free showers. Downside is there is no temperature control for... More

We recently went and camped at the Elkwater campsite on the Alberta side. We enjoyed camping, but also the proximity to the town of Elkwater (were we cheated and went out for a few meals instead of cooking). The interpretive center was a hit with the kids, and they enjoyed a "learn to fish" session, as well a session on... More

As part of group of 18 we booked 4 cabins for 4 nights at the Cypress Hills Resort. The cabins were clean and well equipped. The staff were professional and very helpful. All the facilities are great with activities in close proximity. Highly recommended! Fantastic place for a family holiday!

Cypress Hills is an unexpected natural wonder in the middle of the prairies, the highest elevation between the Rocky Mountains and Labrador's Torngatt Mountains (in Canada). There are a couple of scenic viewpoints from the edge of the woods (lodgepole pines, firs, poplars, birches) and lots of wildlife including deer, moose, porcupines, squirrels, wildcats, cougars, and rumours of wolves and...

Great park, stayed in rainbow 46 with full service and war lodge 67 for second half of week. Loved the war lodge site as much bigger, park on other side of hill and a bit more private. All the sites are a bit open due to the tall pine trees so at all sites you can see your neighbours but... More

Been going to Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park ever since I was a child. Although there have been a few changes over the years, it has kept it's peaceful environment and enjoyable attractions.
