Balzac Campground RV Park and Storage (formerly Whispering Spruce Camp, Balzac, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

There is nothing esthetically pleasing about this facility. In spite of its [former] name, what few trees there were, were clustered around the central building and not at the sites. The sites were short, the grass area was rough and uneven. We had to park the tow vehicle crossways on the grass in front of our unit to be off the roadway. The roadways were poorly maintained, so were rough and had potholes that filled with water when it rained. The services were fine, except that they were all in one spot on the site, which, in my case meant I had to buy an extension sewer hose to be able to hook up. The close proximity to the highway was not an issue for us. A further detraction was the presence of many decrepit RVs in storage on site. The laundry and washrooms were adequately clean but not thoroughly. There was some dust buildup around the window in the laundry room, etc. The positives include: being close to major shopping center (Crossiron Mills), close to Calgary city limit, and close to major RV service and supply center. Bottom line: If you just want a place to park and be gone during the day to nearby attractions, then this will suffice, otherwise not recommended. We camped at Balzac Campground RV Park and Storage (formerly Whispering Spruce Camp in a Travel Trailer.

AB Camping & RV Park, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has close access to the city and nearby Interstates. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we were led directly to our site. There are some big trees which provides some shade. The internet access was slow in the evening, but cell service was good. The washrooms were fairly clean, but the water pressure for the showers was low. We were there when it was very hot and dry, so this may have had something to do with it. We would stay there again. We camped at AB Camping & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Shaker's Acres RV Park, Edmonton, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We choose to stay here because of its close proximity to the city of Edmonton. That was the only pro. The sites were short and square to the road, which made backing in difficult. Once in, there was not room to leave the tow vehicle in front without unhooking and parking sideways. Even at that, we had to park partially on the grass. A lot of the sites (including ours) were not level, so extra blocking was needed under the wheels. The washrooms/shower houses were deplorable and in dire need of upgrading. The toilet stalls were shoddily built, with a rail above the doors that I hit my head on almost every time. Internet was only available in the main building. Rules are strictly enforced. There was no flexibility on late checkout times, even though the park was not that full. Recommendation: Only stay here as a last resort. We camped at Shaker's Acres RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
