About a half hour drive from Brooks, The park is a destination attraction in a eroding badlands off a plateau exposing dinosaur fossils. A nice visitor center with exhibits, Walks in different areas of the park's badlands and by the river. Sites nicely spaced and graveled. Water in scattered faucets, not at the sites. Lots of trees and grass. The bad news, the mosquitoes were really bad. Good news is mosquito repellent actually worked very well. A gem level attraction. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park had absolutely amazing views of the Alberta Badlands. There were amazing hiking and bike trails and some great lookout points. This park is an absolute must-see for anyone passing through the area. The only downside is that it takes a good half hour to get to the park from Brooks, but it is definitely worth the drive! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The big problem of this campground = MOSQUITOES We were not able to have lunch outside or to walk around as there were huge quantities of mosquitoes. Also no hot water for showers. Nevertheless the site is wonderful, you can walk (except for mosquitoes) directly in the park. There is plenty of space for our site, playground for kids, good fire pits. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Someone went to a lot of trouble designing this park. It has a superior layout; large lots, treed and separated by mainly rows of lilac bushes. Most lots have a view of the water, some are actually on the water. ALL lots have 30 amp and 15 amp service ONLY. Picnic tables and fire pits. The have added Wi-Fi which is indifferent and ineffective "most" of the time. Sewer cleanout and fresh water delivery available on site weekly or at sani dump by entrance. So many "pro's" for this park. Con's : 8km gravel road which is badly potholed coming from both town or Hwy 36. Will definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is located 20km from Brooks on the shores of the Rolling Hills Reservoir. Signage to campground was good but road was gravel. The campground is just four years old and has superb large flat sites with long gravel pads and huge grass surrounds with young trees and bushes. All sites have some view of the lake and some right on the waterfront. Only 15/30 amp electricity hookups available. Electricity not very stable in hot weather. Self registration, which appeared to being abused by the locals to hold campsites. A really lovely and quiet location. Pity about the electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Commenting only on the CG sites and dump as we got there during an early winter storm. There are five very unique double circle CG areas with about 15 sites in each area. You enter by a paved road leading to the inner circular road, which has the sites leading off obliquely to the outer road and thence to the exit road. The sites are narrow heavily wooded pull throughs with electric boxes. Not good for a big class A RV. Self registering boxes toward the center. There is a large paved well designed double sided approach dump with potable water fill. Didn't get to look at the recreational offerings nor see the bath house facilities. Was fine for our overnite sheltered from the storm stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All sites are pull through. Mostly 15amp. Kept blowing the breaker (older park); would have preferred one of the few 30amp services. Beautiful treed lots. Tight fit for slides coming off both sides. Water at sani dump or in central circle of each section. Located right on the Trans Canada Highway so great access when travelling through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This feels like camping ... a nice oasis of a park in the middle of the semi-arid plains of southern Alberta. It is very quiet ... early in the season ... nice shaded campsites with plenty of space. Facilities clean and well kept. We would recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Weekly rate is $120 and monthly rate $460. Wi-Fi available at a $1 per day. Self-check in. Layout of services was poorly installed requiring long extension electrical cords for most sites as was the case for water and sewer. Water quality was fair, and there was question as to quality of power. Irrigation spigots were not labeled as to non-potable water, and some units were connected unknowingly for short period of time. Many sites used long term by workers. Campsite has gravel roads as do unit sites; however, gravel is totally inadequate especially during wet weather when sites are excessively muddy and water pools around vehicles. Accessing campgrounds on wet days results in mud coating vehicles. Dry season is dusty. Not all picnic tables are usable, and children's playground is in need of repairs. Washrooms and showers, while clean, need overhaul. Anyone concerned with weed killers be aware as owner sprays sites with herbicides which might be okay when sites are empty, but tends to have no respect for your equipment and sprays on water hoses, electrical cables, mats and other apparatus associated with your unit. Due to allergies with herbicides we had to discard considerable number of items at my expense. Weeds around unit were helping to keep mud from splashing onto unit during rain, but after herbicide application the weeds were gone. Out of necessity we stayed here for an extended period in a 5th wheel. Depending on the weather, good location for a one or two night stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
