We've stayed at this campground several times over the last few years and always enjoyed it. The sites are clean and a reasonable size, not too difficult to access. Washrooms are a bit of a walk from some sites, but they're accessible and clean. Staff are always friendly and knowledgeable. The only issue we have is the wi-fi. It's Tengo, and I really think that having to pay up to $4.95 for a day of use is not necessary. Internet costs are static, once the network is set up, and could be easily maintained. But this is their decision. But each day our Tengo connection was over-ridden by a local network that is apparently no longer even functioning, so we had to reconnect each time we turned the lap-top on. Annoying, but even worse was times when we had no internet access for several hours at a stretch, and no recourse for repair/support without making a phone call ourselves. And then we received our credit card statement - and we were charged US exchange! That just is not acceptable. None of the internet issues is the responsibility of the campground, but we've reduced our rating from 10 because of this. If they had their own internet, with local support and even charged an extra dollar or two a day for campers to have the privilege of using it would make much more sense to us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very clean well taken care of RV park. We stayed here for 4 nights with 2 young children and it was a great place. Everything was very clean and the playground and pool were well taken care of. There are lots of rules and the security is tight and that was something we loved because we aren't party animals. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you plan on staying in this park and want Wi-Fi, make sure you get an off-site solution. The system here is very inconsistent and spotty. Also, cell-based systems for Wi-Fi don't work well here as the cell towers are not close. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a visually pretty RV park but does have the basics. Will have 50A power soon. This wouldn't be where you would come to "camp" but is more of a trailer park with seasonal residents. They are getting new WiFi which will be good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Way over priced! More interested in selling spaces than RV'ers. The pool was closed in July! When do they think people want to swim? Even the trash dumpsers were hard to find. Moved to George Lane Park in High River, much better. Would never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paved level sites, but not worth $45. Close to the interstate. The pool was closed in July! They are selling lots and have many long term residents. Will look for a less expensive park next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little campground, city owned but run by the Lions. It was destroyed in 2013 floods, so it is nicely re-done. Pull throughs are large with plenty of width for slides and awnings. Utilities work well. When it rains it gets very soupy and muddy (they need more gravel). Also, no laundry here and the only place in town is a ripoff. So plan on doing laundry before or after. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly and helpful staff. When we arrived we were in a stall that was too small, so they moved us to a nicer pull-through stall that was adequate for our truck and trailer. They guide you into the sites; garbage is picked up twice a day. Very clean and well kept. Beautiful grassy sites with fire ring. Firewood available through the store, but a little pricey. Gated campsite and we felt very safe. Would definitely recommend that people stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean & well run. The rules are strictly enforced. 1 hour free WI-FI; after that you have to pay Tengo. The attendant guided us to our site and helped us back in. The bathrooms were very clean. The sites were well kept, watered and had lush green grass. The utilities were well located and in good condition. The park had key card security with a gate. There is a public park and river across the street with a walking trail along the river. A very nice RV park but not a place to party. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First things first: Wi-Fi is pitiful and almost non existent. Tengo of course and we have had nothing but grief when this company has been involved. No laundry. Now the pluses. You are right in the heart of Okotoks, handy to shopping and very good jump off to Calgary. If we were visiting Calgary, this would be the place we would hang our hats. Park is part of Sheep River City park. The Sheep river runs adjacent to the the RV park and is great for swimming. A network of wonderful walking/cycling paths start here and you can walk and bike for hours. Sites are close but well laid out. We loved this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice people, nice little park but more for local families than for travelers. We were here for 11 days as part of a Calgary Stampede caravan. The rate based on the 2 nights we came in early. Back in sites are adequate and we were lucky enough to get roof top satellite. The big negative was the power which was only 30 amp and went off 4 or 5 times for just enough time to stop the microwave clock. The road down into the park is very busy with people using the river. It is too far from Calgary or the parks. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty location next to a park that borders the river and a bike/walk path. If you want directions from the couple that manages the park, get them from the man. We got 3 sets of directions (to the same location) from the woman and couldn't follow any of them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is located in a park along the Sheep River just south of downtown Okotoks. The campground lost 18 campsites in a Spring flood, but the Lions Club hope to have them all fixed up for next year. There are walkways along both sides of Sheep River with a pedestrian bridge connection. Very pleasant staff. Note there are gate barriers which are closed at 11:00 p.m. until 7:30 a.m. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Daily fee per pet, large dogs discouraged, some breeds banned. Cable TV only available in full service sites (37), 7-8 of these are taken up by the Lions members who man the campground, most of the rest by seasonal campers. Well maintained, secure, great area for children, with playground and shallow river. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet location on the Sheep River. Most sites seem to have permanent residents. Navigation into back-in sites and around campground is challenging due to trees and tight corners. Washrooms and showers have irregular hot water, lots in the men's but less so in the women's. Washrooms are generally clean, but the grout could use attention. There is no dedicated sani-dump, but you are directed to an unoccupied site where you are still charged $15 to dump and use the water for clean-up. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Cons: The sites too close to one another; playground unsafe and in need of major repair; rules are set but not in practice as I saw many walking/driving with alcohol in hand; they charge for children; and the mini golf in need of major repair! Pros: The hosts helped when we needed a cord and hose. It was so bad that we went into Calgary Alberta during the day because our personal space felt invaded. I would not ever stay here again nor advise anyone to stay here either. I think the money they charge for children should go towards upgrading the playgrounds. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just started the first leg of our trip from British Columbia to the Maritimes and this was our first night. We pulled into this campground at 7:20pm and the owner/manager stayed open as we called ahead. When we arrived we were somewhat taken aback by the quality of the campground. Our pull-through site was beside an older travel trailer that has been here for sometime. Thankfully, it was dry that day or otherwise the campground would have been a mud hole. I feel that the $50 nightly rate is gouging the RV traveller based on the accommodation available. I certainly would never stay here again, nor would I recommend this campground to anyone. Very disappointing!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not sure where previous poster stayed, but this is the worst campground I have ever stayed in. Gravel roads and sites, but the gravel is a lot of rocks and stones, not crushed gravel. The campground is dirty and rather ugly. Was not told at the office about the water; after we paid and set up camp we went to the bath and saw a sign posted. Health department has posted a no drinking water hazard; all water must be boiled. It has been under this posting since 2008. The staff were nice and another positive was the bath was remodeled and clean. Showers cost $1 for 5 minutes. No WI-FI. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was one of the best campgrounds I have seen. Very beautiful, clean and friendly. They recently had a flood along the river and lost 30 campsites. They are still high spirited and a friendly bunch of people. I would go back anytime. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
