A well maintained campground with paved roads and nice level gravel sites. Stayed in a back in river site. Nicely maintained hedges between each of the sites to provide more privacy. New WiFi which was free and works great for normal uses. They have a good set of rules and expect everyone to abide with them. If you select a river site, be aware that there is a public trail along the river and the campground has a fence but I think everyone in the town of Cochrane that has a dog brings it here to walk since it is a "no leash" section of the trail. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate based upon monthly stay in 50 amp pull thru. Nice well maintained park close to river. Good things: quiet, great location, paved roads. Negatives: wi-fi useless, construction on adjacent property, speeders within park. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for several days in a 43' 5th wheel, very easy to back into site but narrow and not deep enough to park the truck conveniently. Very quiet, well maintained campground, our site (#4) backed a tall hill and was nicely sheltered from the wind. Sites are separated by well maintained hedges. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been here 2 times and it has been great both time. Very quite, nice separation between sites with bushes. Great place to us as a base camp to travel to the Rockies (Banff etc...). Highly recommended this please to anyone. Lots of pull though sites and the back in sites are very easy to get in to. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here because everything in Banff NP was full. Good roads to the park but a little far. CG is clean, quiet and plenty of room at the site. Would stay again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the most well groomed and maintained campgrounds that we have ever been at. The landscaping was well looked after. The washrooms and showers were very clean and updated. Laundry facilities are also very clean with newer machines. Like other reviews stated the sites are rather narrow with just enough room for slides and awnings. This is the place to stay when in Calgary area. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is not that easy to find off of the main highway (poor signage). I was given a gravel pull-thru, FHU 30 Amp site for my 42' 5th wheel. I was able to unhook my truck & still have room to park on the site. Sites are close to your neighbor, but a hedge separates you and the next site, so it makes the site look a little bigger. Park is well maintained and looks well kept. Wi-fi worked well on my site. Picnic table & fire ring are on the site. Would probably stay here again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Signage from the main highway to the RV Park is not that good.

Rail Station to Calgary if you don't want to drive to Calgary from the park is just a few miles from the park.

The setting is a little odd. You think you're driving into an industrial park and at the end, through all the construction trucks, you find this little gem. While there is a lot of construction going on near the park, it's just temporary and didn't affect our experience. The campground is very nice and has a wonderful off leash dog walk area/trail right outside the gates. It comes complete with a river view. The path went on for miles and would be great for biking or walking. Our site was very roomy and provided more space than we needed for our 36' plus tow. It would accommodate a larger rig with ease. The laundry facilities were very, very nice with lots of washers/dryers! There was a beautiful playground as well. If ever in the area again, we will definitely return. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was built and run by the Rotary Club and Lions Club and the proceeds go to their projects. It was obviously built by someone who has camped in RV parks. There are hedges between each site for privacy, level gravel pads and nice grassy yards. There is a nice paved path right out the gate for walking or bike riding along the river. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

One of the best parks in Western Canada. Very clean, sites are excellent. As other reviews, if you arrive before check in time 1:00 pm, you will wait. Saw some rigs holding tough even though there were vacant spots from the previous night. No cable, here but you can pickup 4 - 5 channels with the antenna. If you have a dog, it's paradise, outside the gate along the Bow river is a nice long walk, all off leash. Will definitely come back here. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a wonderful campground from which to explore Calgary and Banff National Park. The place is very manicured and well-maintained. The sites are nicely separated by hedges and trees. The campground is located on the river at one corner of the town of Cochrane, giving convenient access to shopping, dining, and services. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would happily return to camp here again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is immaculate. Very well landscaped and very well maintained. Some criticism because sites are very narrow, neighbor is very close. They have planted trees and shrubs between sites and these help but the campers are still very close side to side. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park right on river although you can't see it, just a short walk from sites. Did not use the bathroom/shower so can't comment on. Clean laundry room although a little small to maneuver around and no folding tables. Very well maintained, after a camper leaves a site a worker shows up and smooths out the gravel before the next camper arrives. Landscaping between sites is nice since you are close to your neighbor but you won't see them through the trees and shrubs. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park, this is how all parks should be organised and presented. Wifi is good and free for 1st 7 days not sure about after 7 days. Shopping is 3kms away and there are river walks by the park. Quiet.
We arrived at 10 am but were asked to wait until 1.00 pm before we could occupy the site even though the site and plenty of others were vacant, we found this a bit odd and quite inconvenient as it was pouring with rain so could not do much except drag our rig to Walmart and back. Other than that a superb site. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
