This is a FCFS campground and, as it turned out, i was very lucky to get the last spot. They had to turn away many travelers. The sites have 30A service but no water or sewer. There was a water spigot conveniently located as you drive in. There was also a dump station which was also easy to access. My site was easy to back into and provided more than enough space to spread out. From my door I overlooked a beautiful green field. Although fairly close to highway 2A, it was very quiet. A train went through town on the other side of the highway but I don't recall hearing it at night. This is a fairly small community with limited services. I definitely would stay here again. We camped at Carstairs Municipal Campground in a Travel Trailer.

For access to any big name shopping, the closest town is Olds, then Airdrie. I was surprised to find a very nice car/truck/rv wash nearby. I was able to pull into the truck bay with my 34ft TT and truck and give them both a good wash for $20. Pop into the Olds College Brewery just 15 minutes north on 2A. Good stuff!

This a great little site in a lovely little town. The sites are large, with trees. Our site was very level, with picnic table and fire pit. There was firewood for sale - $5 CDN for a wheel barrow load and it burned really well. The hosts stay on site and were helpful. There is a playground and large field. It was an easy walk into the town just over the road with a small supermarket, a great little coffee shop, a great little museum and visitor centre. There was free wifi at the library and coffee shop too. We planned to stay two nights and stayed an extra because we liked it so much. There was a nearby train but it seems you get that everywhere in Alberta and the Rockies. The showers were $1 for 6 minutes, very clean and hot. We camped at Carstairs Municipal Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a golf course in town, but the one a few miles away in Didsbury was a great choice for a quick cheap 9 holes. Olds also seemed like a great spot for shopping. The Koffee Kabin had good coffee and wifi. The library is located in the school and the wifi is very good but you have to go inside, and they will tell you the password. You can't get it outside apparently.

We stayed here based on the previous review and were not disappointed! Only lacking a view. Excellent clean sweet-smelling washrooms with piping hot 6 minute showers. Quiet except for the odd train going by. Very clean well managed and well maintained grounds. Surprising number of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. We are staying an extra night due to central location and quality of accommodation. We camped at Carstairs Municipal Campground in a Truck Camper.
