This is maybe a little further out than you were thinking, but it's still very feasible to get there from Calgary, and it's a neat place. It's Chain Lakes Provincial Park, 38 km southwest of Nanton on Hwy #533.

Willow Creek Provincial Park, west of Stavely is my favorite spot. They got wiped out last year in the floods, and they are just starting to rebuild it this year, but keep it in mind for next year.

Little Bow Prov Park, east of Champion

Bow Valley Prov Park, by Dead Man's Flats

Livingstone Falls Prov Park, it's in the middle of nowhere, and that's what I love about it. You go south on highway #22, to the Maycroft turnoff. There are signs there to direct you. From there, it's another 30 minutes or so to the campground. There are lots of great spots out in that area, actually.

Shocking I didn't know sweet little Okotoks had a forum until today. Many moons ago we stayed at Blue Rock Campgrounds which are in a very unknown part of Kananaskis past Turner Valley and all that. I don't believe there are any hook ups or anything like that. But it is nice and quiet.

There is Little Bow Provincial Park not far away either.

Happy camping. I love it!
