The park is about 20 minutes south of Calgary but quite off the beaten path and in a very quiet setting. There are plenty of sites, including very large and wooded seasonals. River rock is the predominant ground cover, though there is some grass and some underbrush and plenty of mature trees. The park runs along the Highwood River just south of where it joins the Bow River. The river is fairly narrow but moves fast; there is a "beach" of smooth river rock on the campground side and steep cliff on the other. Showers are free and laundry is a reasonable $1.50 each for washers and dryers. For some reason there is a $10.00 dumping fee that appears to apply even to paying clients: no sweat for us because we had a full service site. I'm guessing they've had problems with guest behaviour in the past because there are stern warnings about excess noise and security is present overnight on weekends and to check campers into the park after hours. There doesn't appear to be any problems now: the park goes dead quiet at night and when we've awakened, the only sounds have been wind and birdsong. The entire park is 20A service, so no A/C. Site electrical supply: 114VAC. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Great place! Located along a river with a beach area to sit and they don't seem to mind if you have your dog at the beach with you. General store on site. Decent sized sites and the grounds are not completely manicured so has a more rustic feel. They do charge a $10 non-refundable reservation fee which is kind of annoying as we only stayed for 1 night which made our stay $50. We camped here in a Motorhome.
