This is a modern, well laid-out RV park designed for easy big-rig access. Unlike others of this type, the sites are not a series of long strips but rather nicely landscaped rectangles. In addition to our 40' fifth-wheel, we could park our dually and our little car on gravel and still have a very enjoyable grassy area. All that separated from the neighbours by nice bushes, which afforded reasonable privacy. FHU all functioned well, strong cell signal; no cable. There's a municipal multi-use trail along the river that's easily accessed from the campground (dogs allowed). Cochrane itself certainly offers all the necessities, and downtown Calgary is about 45 minutes away. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Even though they remain open for a few more weeks, they shut off the water around Oct. 15 because of freezing nights. There is a potable-water spigot at the dump station where tanks may be refilled; alternatively, inquire at the front desk for water-truck deliveries. Check out the regular hockey games at the sports centre next door (a short walk away)!

Very nice RV park. Like a resort - paved roads and concrete pads. Full hookups. Privacy between sites though a little tight. Very well groomed and maintained. Antenna reception. Free Wi-Fi which worked well. Off the beaten path but close enough to downtown to go to the famous McKay's Icecream Shoppe. Would definitely stay here again!

Newer park. Level sites on crushed gravel with high hedges between site. Washrooms and laundry clean. Walking trail nearby. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

While it's not my sort of campsite. All in nice neat rows. It is clean and well maintained. Nice small tree separation between sites. Level and long. We would stay again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Rate is based on a weekly stay. Once you find this park, way at the end of the road and behind a sports building, it is very nice. Friendly staff, very clean park, grass at every site plus bushes separating every site. A plus for dog owners is that you can walk your dog out the back gate and be on a leash-free walk along the river. Dogs give this park a 10! We give it a 9 because it is only 30 amp. We would stay here again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Located in an industrial area, the ride in makes you wonder, but once in the park it's quite nice. Substantial landscaping at the sites (in fact, overtaking some of the sites), paved roads, borders a river with direct access to an off-leash paved public walking path. Many long term campers and early work trucks. Not the friendliest front office reception, but efficient. Park is pretty full - reservations needed. We're passing time here waiting to join a caravan into Calgary Stampede - probably won't have a need to come back. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

This is the nicest park we have ever stayed in during our RV life. It should be the standard for all RV parks in North America. Gravel sites with grass adjacent on the passenger side of the RV. Low shrubbery between sites gives you a sense of privacy. All hookups are in the proper place and the pull-through sites were well designed for big rigs. The rest rooms and showers were immaculate. All of the grounds are extremely well maintained and spotless. The park sits along the Bow River and a bike/walking/pet trail is right outside the south side. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience here and would return in the future. The park is owned jointly by the local Lions Club and Rotary Club and is a non-profit returning the profits to the local area. This park is the best ever!

Rate based on a monthly rate. Very clean and well organized park, with excellent laundry facilities. Located on a hillside overlooking the Bow River on the edge of Cochrane. This park is an excellent location for visits to Calgary or exploring Canmore and Banff. While this is not Alberta wilderness camping, it provides a nice mix of facilities for big rigs while also having a lovely riverside walkway just outside the park, which is also an off-leash dog friendly area. The sites aren't huge but were sufficient for our 40' fifth wheel with 4 slides, while also providing enough room for multiple family members around the campfire. Sites are level, with gravel for parking, a decent sized lawn area, fire pit and virtually new picnic table. Sites are separated by hedges and the entire park was beautifully maintained. The park has a gate that closes at 11 p.m. on the dot, but there is ample safe parking right across the road at a large recreation centre should you arrive back at the park after the gate closes. Calgary is a 15 minute drive east, Canmore is 30 minutes west, making this park an excellent location for the many wonderful attractions of southern Alberta.

Really nice campground. The staff was friendly and the park was easy to navigate to my spot. Finding the actual campground is a little challenging, but it's definitely a nice park once you get there. Most spots appeared to have a short hedgerow as a site boundary; hook ups and site were good and level. Overnighted there with a 40ft fifth wheel and had no problems getting in or out.

Super well laid out RV park with beautiful sites and all the amenities. Very clean and well run, people were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there next time we are in the area. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The park is very well organized and clean however did not know that there was a train track near by with trains that run all night. Quiet time is 11pm but when you needed this to be addressed due to noisy neighbors, management is no where to be found or accessible. Will not go back there again.

We stayed 5 nights here, catching the end of the Stampede. Overall, the park is clean and there is enough room for slide outs. There is a path next to the river that is an off leash dog path. Wonderful, if you are traveling with dogs. The biggest downside to this park: the showers require you to pay $2CAD for 5 min of hot water, and the internet (the free version) isn't what you'd call fast and there is a data limit (2GB, which was enough for our 5 day stay.) On another note, the mosquitos were fierce. Not sure if that's just a result of the recent flooding or not. However, that said, it's an easy trip up 1 A to the C Train station, or hop on 22 down to Hwy 1 and into Calgary - that way (roughly 30 minutes.) Banff was a little over an hour westward. Cochrane has plenty of little shops, or larger stores like Safeway if you need to restock. It was a good spot to serve as our center for exploring the Banff/Calgary area.

Great park. Couple things that they should have, cable TV should be a must. This is a fairly new place, well designed, but no cable seems odd. Also no maps or information for the area, had run out, do not give out the last one make a photo copy! Also, seems odd seeing this is peak season. Staff pleasant and helpful, but really do not know much about area. Very quiet location will stay again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

I gave this park a rare 10.....wide, long pull throughs around 70' long. Good WiFi, grass, small hedges between between the sites to give a sense of privacy. Wide interior roads. Right on the Bow River, and Bow River Bike Path. Close to downtown. Friendly, helpful staff. We were here for a week....reservations are a must in the summer time. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed two nights. The staff was professional and friendly when we checked in. Campground was very clean; sites are rather tight. They charged $1/night for our dog, but there was no special dog area in the RV park. There is a very nice, off leash river trail just next to the park. Enjoyed shopping and eating in the town of Cochrane. Seems most of the park is filled with returning snow birds. We would stay again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.Undo
