If you want to do back trail hiking or the resort thing, you'll find it here. The stores in the park tend to be very expensive. Great places to watch the sunset.

Sorry, not sure if you still need an answer to this....but it's about 10 min from Maple Creek, and then another 20-25 minutes to the Park from there.

We are planning our trip for August to Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park and we are wondering which campground is best to stay at. We will be wanting to hike, bike ride, night sky gazing, and possibly horse back riding (we are thinking of Reeser Ranch for horse back riding) . We have a tent trailer, Thanks

On our way back to the states we are taking a different route and plan to pass through Medicine Hat and then venture on to Cypress Hills. We are looking for suggestions on what to see and do around Medicine Hat. Once we get to Cypress Hill on the Alberta side, how much time should we plan to spend exploring the park on both sides.
