Nice staff, beautiful setting, really clean. Spaces are large, wide and you feel somewhat separated from your neighbors which doesn't happen often in RV Parks, even ones that are more expensive. The only complaint we had was that the staff recommended an RV Mobile Repairman who set an appointment, then never came and was so rude didn't even return our... More

This is very clean neat, although a bit out of the way, RV Park. All spaces have picnic tables and fire rings. The spaces are gravel, and grass. Laundry and shower facilities are also clean and neat. Our only complaint was the Free WIFI advertised was worthless, but you could purchase high speed WIFI which I did, but this was... More

Hi, I have just read your review regarding our Internet service. I am sorry you were not able to connect to the Internet here.

This is a very nice park-what we enjoyed the most is that they offer a dog walking service for those who will be away from there RV's for an extended period of time. We were going to the stampede and were gone most of the day-its a great service-one not is you can NOT get into your reserved site until... More

Hi, Thank you for the review of our park. I am so glad that you enjoyed the dog walking service that McKenna has provided our campers this summer.

The campground is in an industrial part of Cochrane, but nevertheless is lovely, well-maintained, and well-situated for exploring both Cochrane and the nearby Banff National Forest. Though the campground advertises that they have free wifi, we had been forewarned that wifi access was poor. Nevertheless, we were sorely disappointed, and felt cheated, when we paid $17 (Canadian) for enhanced wifi... More

Beautiful campground. The young girl on the desk was very knowledgeable of the area and very friendly. The layout of the campground is perfect. All lots have trees and shrubs. Very clean and comfortable.

This is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful full facility RV Parks we have ever stayed at in North America! Owned by the Lions & Rotary Clubs in the area, this pristine park is ideally located in town and set alongside the beautiful Bow River. There's everything you would expect and more in this first class park. Each... More

Beautiful setting, all faciliites were top notch; laundy, showers, dumpsters. The spaces were generous with their own "lawn" adjacent to the space. Full hookup. The walk along the river would be nice if the dog owners kept their pets on a leash. It's a bit tricky to find, trust your GPS.

Thanks for the great review! It was a pleasure to have you here. Wondering if you are with the big group that was here. The walk along the river is an off leash dog area but I think for the most part owners are pretty good at picking up and keeping some control of their pets. So glad you enjoyed... More

We spent two weekends at Bow Rivers Edge campground. East access, even for large rigs, with quite a few pull throughs. Our site backed onto the walkway along the river, lots of people watching. We were able to walk into town or ride our bikes in. Service was good, had water, sewer, power and internet. Sites are a little narrow... More

Stayed four night, late in April. Found this place on Allstays and wondered if in fact we would be near enough to walk to town. No problem at all, nice trail system along the river and then walk along River st into town in about 20 minutes. The park itself is not very old, very well kept. Paved streets, gravel... More
