Every area has its little gem of a campground somewhere and for us this is the one in the Drumheller area. The campground is very well maintained. It is obvious the couple who runs it takes pride in this place. They are very matter the fact in the way they run things but they are in no way rude or unkind. The noise rules are strict but one of the reasons we loved this place too much is because it was quiet. After almost 5 days in another RV park where we could hardly sleep at times due to noise we could truly appreciate that rule. The trip into Drumheller was minutes. It is only 6km, I think about 20 km to the Tyrell Museum. The playground area is nice, equipment was well maintained. As with almost every RV/campground we have been to we skip the full package sites and just go with power and water or just power. The sites are 9 times out of 10 nicer. They have a dumping station right as you leave so it is easy and quick to dump as you go. Showers $1 for 5 minutes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Great little campground. I asked for a private spot and got a very nice spot. Managers were really nice. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. Area was nicely lit at night so you can see where you're going. Playground was great for the kids. Really quiet area and overall a great experience and I would camp there again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Didn't actually stay but thought I needed to add my 2 cents. I reserved a full service site over the phone. The lady who answered was pleasant enough and made certain I was aware of the restrictive sound rules and the cancellation policy, which was on par with any other I have seen. I had no problem with the registration process. When we arrived we were disappointed by the location of the full service sites. Well treed but one trailer on our door side was completely open and right at the entrance and near the showers/washrooms. Being close to the washrooms is nice but not when you're in the path to them. We parked and thought about it and decided to move on instead. I went in to the office and asked what our options were. The lady quite simply stated that I could have a full refund. There was nothing rude or offensive, just very matter of fact. I appreciated this since it was Friday afternoon of a long weekend. For future reference I know to ask for no service or electric only since those sites appeared more private. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice enough campground, with nothing too fancy. Gravel pads without sewer (sani-dump at entry.) Overall a quiet campground, except for the 7:30am train! This campground is in a town called Rosedale, next to Drumheller. We found it a little far from the Dinosaur exhibits about 10 minutes from Drumheller and 20 minutes from the museum. Like other reviews, we found the owners a little uptight, but they keep a tidy campground. The washrooms were quite nice, and seem like they have recently been renovated. There were a ton of mosquitos, but that's the time of year I guess. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We called in and reserved three power sites. I called back a few minutes later and asked the lady if there was any extra fees for being late. I was politely told that you are not to be late, you can come the next day or be on time. I said okay I will have to work something out with the people I work with because I work later that evening and we have to drive five hours. She called back and said our reservations were cancelled because we could not comply with the park rules. It was a pressing request to ask if we could arrive late and that we were not allowed in the campground that this was just too confusing. We asked for a valid reason and all they said was your reservation has been terminated and they hung up on us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great looking area, but tons of bugs ! There is a playground, but our kids prefered not to go because of the mosquitos. This small campground is nice, But when we made the reservations, they advised us to hold our kids and make no noise, etc. The Web site (which is not very user friendly and does not give much information) also has a note in regards with the noise, and when we arrived, they noticed us again for the noise. So we were extra careful, just to realize that everyone else made more noise than us !!! The campground is a little old. Restrooms need to be improved but were clean. If you want to go visit Drumheller Dinosaurs Museum, this is a good place to stay for a night or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, well treed and well spaced. Friendly owners. They sell ice, firewood, and a few ice cream treats at the registration office. There is a small sandy beach on the river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice large back in sites, and easy to maneuver around the park. This park is very family and pet friendly. The west section is seasonals but their sites are very well kept up. Overpriced, but after all this is Drumheller. There is a short trail to what they call a "beach" but in reality it is a muddy bank down into the water. However, it is easy to wade out to a gravel bar for a dip on a hot day. Bring bug spray though! Wi-Fi worked most of the time. This is the one we would chose if we returned to Drumheller.

Huge back in sites, clean and well kept grounds. Little shade available and the mozzies are thick. Lack of sewer was no big deal for us with only 3 nights here and all day time away touring but it could be a big deal for others. They do have a honey truck they'll come suck out the tanks for a fee. Showers are group style with open changing room. The park isn't very handicap friendly. No shower for a person with spouse that needs assistance. Internet access is fast and free (from site 105 at least). It's close to town and attractions and the price is good so I'd probably stay again if coming back to this area.

This is the nicest CG in the Drumheller area. All are very overpriced. This CG is actually a very nice place. Decent sites. Friendly staff. Large enough for our 4 slide 42 ft. and the toad. But the lack of 50 amps and no sewer was a serious drawback considering the high rates. Some of the 30 amp sites must have small wires as they are not a true 30 amp. BTW: The Royal Museum is fantastic but the Hoodoos are a big disappointment. Very small and wearing away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Generally nice layout of the campground. A lot of green spaces. However not many trees to provide shade. Washrooms are in the middle of the campground - showers are coin operated ($1/4min -unfortunately, showers take approx. 1-2 minutes to get hot). Staff is very friendly and helpful. WIFI is available throughout the campground free of charge. Very annoying speed-bumps across the area. During our visit, we had a heavy mosquito plague - no chance to sit outside without a mosquito tent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is okay for a night or two. When we arrived I asked for PWS but it turns out the S is for site pickup of your sewage and costs $10. The worst speed bumps in North America are here and are very bad for trailer axles even at the slowest speed. Bad way to reduce speeds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is OK. It's clean and well laid out but there isn't much to do. Can't sit outside much because of the mosquitoes, which are everywhere in that area. There seemed to be quite a few seasonal and/or full timers there. Good spot to use as a base to visit all the attractions at this end of the town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place has only been in business for a few years according to the owner which explains the small trees and wide open grassy campground. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They will come and dump your tanks on site as needed for 10 dollars a visit if you are an overnighter or weekender, but it is free if you stay a week or more. They will also deliver firewood to your site. The surrounding view is nice. Last time we were there they had a pig roast followed by karaoke; the food was great, the singing: well, downright hilarious. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice open campground. They have 30 and 50 amp electric available along with water but no sewer. The roads and parking sites are gravel with grass along side. There are small trees but they do not provide much shade. I used my satellite dish here. There is a river along one side but you cannot see it and have to walk a trail to get to the riverbank. You get a picnic table and a fire pit at each site. They charge a dollar Canadian for the showers which is unusual when they do not provide a sewer connection. Our experience has been that parks only charge for the shower when they provide sewer at the site. Secondly, they have two sewer dumps in the park and both are non-conventional. One is what appears to be an RV site that you must pull into nose first so that the connection is on the correct side, but there is no outlet. This means that you must back out in order to leave the sewer dump. The other site in right in front of the office. You must pull into it going against the traffic flow so that the connection is on the correct side here too. You can then pull out just fine as long as no new customer is in line waiting for you to leave. We camped here in a Motorhome.
