The main advantage to this place is proximity to the Cypress Hills and to Elkwater. The campground itself is nothing special, and seems to be the favorite place for lots of party-goers. Still, facilities were adequate and there was a beat up basketball court that occupied my kids for hours. We camped here in a Motorhome.

In this Alberta Provincial park there are many smaller campgrounds all around the town of Elkwater. We stayed in Firerock but there's also Ferguson Hill, Lakeview, Elkwater, Beaver Creek, Lodgepole, Old Baldy etc. You get the idea. At Firerock there is power but no water service - fill up with potable water at the sani dump. There's only 1 sani dump with 4 stations for all these parks. I waited for an hour and 15 minutes to dump. Park is nice, sites are quite small - barely room for my F-150 and 21' travel trailer in there. A fair bit of garbage around the gravel. Beaches on lake very nice, lots of boats, Elkwater is a very cute little town with a few restaurants and massive ice cream cones at the gas station. Lovely scenery too. Will be back there again for sure! Some nice hikes through the park too, take a stick to beat away cougars though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in Old Baldy. There are several campgrounds one beside the other; check in all at the same entrance office. Very nice location. Staying in a somewhat mountainous area after days of traveling through the prairies is a relief. Our rate was for a pull through water and electric site including taxes. The site was spacious, very level and had good hookups. Unfortunately it was raining all night so we didn't hike on one of the nice looking trails. We would have stayed longer but next morning it was still raining and all the trails were muddy and uninviting. However, this is a very nice place to stay and hike or enjoy the lake. There is no Wi-Fi in the parks and we couldn't steal a signal from a nearby lodge either (rangers tip). When in the area we would stay again and take the 35 km detour from the Trans Canada Highway, it's worth it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
