The sites are closer together than I would like, but the ones along the river have a nice "back yard" which leads to the river. Picnic tables in the back provide a nice setting to grill out or have a meal. Restrooms are heated and they play music inside. The pool looks very clean, although we didn't use it. We could access the Crowsnest River from the campground, which was fun for us as we fish for trout. The CG is located across the road from a basic grocery store and the town is very close. The hosts are very helpful and provide an enjoyable atmosphere. Power, water, and sewer connections were convenient and power was fine, according to my installed monitor. We had some tiny black bug problems in the camper. We used apple cider, vinegar, and dish liquid in a dish to catch them. This worked fairly well. - rob3

Other than the fact of being crowded and some difficulty in manoeuvring rigs around, it is a nice place to stay. Some sites back onto the Crowsnest River, some into a steep hillside (these offer a little more privacy), and some are in between with no trees nor privacy. The site itself was clean and well looked after with newer improvements added as time and seasons permit. - Doug Dean

I did not have any problems with rules. Elect was good and had 50amp, water was good. Wifi was good. Close to town and there is a IGA there if you need food. Gravel roads. Watch out at the RR tracks. Bad bumps. Grass between sites and have a picnic table. Quite. too cold for the hot tub and pool. Is tight with my 38' with tow but really was not a problem. People running the place are quite nice. Bathrooms are really clean and nice. I would stay again if in the area. Stopped on my way to Alaska. Lots are pretty level. If you are new to the area there is a Tim Horton which is like Dunkin donuts. - neilontheroad

Campground asks for a donation to cover costs. Some noise from highway. There is water and a dump site. GPS 49.57011 -114.35918 - User3761
Jul 2014 - $30.00
Reservations were made by email and staff were friendly and caring. Campsite is near the highway so there is quite a bit of road noise. The 30 Amp electric was conveniently located and had a breaker at the pillar. The water was clean but distinctly chlorinated. Sites have gravel pads separated by grass with steel fire-pits. Washrooms are new and very clean with stainless-steel counters, are brightly lit and nicely decorated. Laundry room has two coin operated washers and two dryers. - North_fork

The Park has no cell phone service. The host requires folks to leave something at the site to show that it is not abandoned. I was less than pleased to find my site taken by another camper. The Falls are quite lovely. It is located on the old highway. There are vault toilets. Wood is two bundles for $15.00. I'd stay here again. - User3761

A lovely campsite. Close to the highway, but fairly quiet all the same. 15 amp power but lots of oomph. Water connection at the sites. Rinse water at the dump station. It is operated by the Town. Fire wood was provided, as are picnic tables. I would camp here again. - User3761

Large sites for most campsites. We kept a 27' trailer and boat side by side on our site. A few pull-throughs are available. Near Highway 3 so not as quiet as some campgrounds but night time traffic was lighter so did not bother us. It is a community run campground so is in good condition and office staff were very friendly. Would stay there again. - Calgarynorm

Clean restrooms, spacious sites but limited full service. Good community run park. Free firewood in abundance which is definitely a plus given that other campgrounds charge $$ for a very small bundle. Would visit again. - Alpiners

This would have a better rating if water & sewer were available. Good park for hiking & biking. - User3196

This is a great place to stay for a family as the park is great and walking distance from all sites. If you want the power sites, you will need to book well in advance. Very quiet, great walking trails and people are very nice. there is a lake to fish in as well. I would recommend this site! Be forewarned however, if camping during mosquito season, you will leave that campground with the fast reflexes of a Kung Fu Master! - threeunderthreeSAHM

This is a rustic park with plentiful vault toilets, several potable water faucets but none at individual sites and no showers. The sites are shaded and private sites and approximately 25 with electricity. They are a couple of dollars more expensive. For RVs the lake is within walking distance via a nature trail. Separate tent sites are on the lake. Fishing, a boat ramp (small boats only), wildlife viewing, playground and numerous well marked trails are available. For ice fishing and cross country skiing in the winter there are small huts with wood burning stoves beside the river. A serene and scenic park approximately 5 miles from town. - caragamuffin

Very small gravel parking lot in which 10 campers were squeezed very close together. Only 1 bathroom/shower so be prepared to wait. Even motel guests (motel is connected to the campground office) use this shower so it's one little busy bathroom! Very little privacy since campers so close together. This campground "parking lot" was right behind residential houses in town, but down the street about 3 blocks is a nice park and bike path. Overall this is just "a place to park overnight if you're desperate." Not worth it to stay long-term, especially for the price and how little you get for your dollar. If we had a choice, we would not come back here. - Rider

This is a great place to spend a night or even a few days while in Pincher Creek, AB. Electric only but good Wi-Fi. Dump Station and fresh water available. Host is very friendly and helpful. We stayed here, in the rain, for one night only, but would return. It is a very pretty little park right in Town and on the Pincher Creek. Lots of trees and grass. - Saskanna

A nice small park in Pincher Creek, we were a little surprised to find that the sites did not have water at the site. We came in with little water in our tanks; we were able to fill our tank before we backed in. The park is located next to a nice walking trail and close to the local museum. The camp hosts were very friendly. We would stay there again. - mamestra

Limited hours when office was open and self registration was in effect at time of visit. When I tried to register in person during evening business hours no one showed up. List of reserved sites on bulletin board and first come first serve for the rest. Our site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Electric was only 15 amp and I had to use a long extension cord and adapter to use it. Sewer connection was a home made affair with a corrugated pipe inside a wooden box that had a hole in the side where my sewer connector got pushed into the pipe. With my sewer support I was able to get a sold fit, but I have never seen such a wonky set up. No cable TV, but a couple of weak analog channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was available near the office only. I don't think I would bother coming back here again. - Onemoretrail

This is a beautiful campground. Nice level sites. Private and surrounded by trees. Paved roads and not too tight for larger rigs. Entry road is a bit rough. Close to town and other activities. Highly recommended! - Auworks
Jul 2013 - $21.00
21 of the 43 sites may be reserved. It is far from the highway and up a fairly steep hill. The road is paved but breaking up. There is an over flow camping area which I stayed in. Generator hours are 9 to 11 a.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. The cheapest dump site is at the Visitor's Center in Fernie. Potable water is available in the Park. I would stay here again. - User3761

Charming primitive campground. Nice big sites near the river. Very quiet and scenic. Lots of shade, the trees are well trimmed for taller rigs.
No host on site, registration is on the honor system.
The only hookup is electric. - Impkitti

There are 52 unserviced (no power) sites and 30 with power. They advertise 15 amp, but all outlets are 30 amp.
There is one serviced site (#1), with power, water and sewer. But it is marked "host", but unoccupied.
There is a notice that the water spigots (three?) may be out due to construction, and they were at the time we were there.
A number of the serviced sites a marked "reserved" and are supposed to be occupied only by reservation. At the time we were there, none were.
This campground is very quiet, even with the near-by bridge rebuilding.
Due to the bridge work the "up the hill" Old Man Recreation site is not easily available, so the dump-site, shower, etc are not easily accessible (a long drive around is required).
The "bathhouses" on site are all pit-toilets (with electric lights).
We would stay here again. - wetterwashington

The good: Clean park. Easy access. Long sites. Everything looks clean. Nice views and right beside a 9 hole golf course. The bad: Right between the highway and train tracks. The highway didn't bother us, but the trains going through at night blowing their horns did. No Wi-Fi at the site...although I did get a really weak signal at one point. To use the Wi-Fi you have to go to the laundry room. - AloraDanin

The owners are wonderful. Friendly, helpful, funny, and just terrific people who make you feel at home. The sites do not have sewer but there's a dump site available or "honey wagon services". We would love to come back and stay here again. The show, dance, and meals are all top notch. - Toby Maxx

Fantastic campground! Lovely views and very helpful and pleasant staff. Helped us park so we could make the most of the magnificent views. Plenty of space on grassed sites. Good 30amp electric and water. Sewer dump station on site. Wi-Fi in office area only, but very good overall. 2 local channels on TV. Nice location for visiting Waterton Lakes NP. Would definitely recommend this campground if you like peace and quiet away from everything. Nearest shopping is Cardston about 45 mins away. We did not stay over the weekend, but they do have barn dances and meals at weekends, which we heard were excellent. Would stay here again. - mcquin

This campground is family-run in a rural setting, accessible on paved roads. They serve a roast beef dinner each Fri. and Sat. night and also offer barn dance lessons and other musical events. The campsites are set around a pond. Canoes are available to use. Toilet and shower facilities are available on the main side of the grounds but not the far side. Beautifully framed by the Canadian Rockies and an hour away from Waterton National Park. - gbburgess

This is a small quiet provincial park. It is about 16 km south of Fort Steele on a secondary highway and quite close to Cranbrook, BC. It is well kept but there is no water hookup or electricity. Across the road is very pretty Norbury Lake which is turquoise in colour. It is very scenic. Deer are plentiful in this area so be careful when driving. According to the on site caretaker, there is a small 2 year old male bear in the area so make sure he doesn't scavage food so he won't be put down or relocated. This is a nice little park to stay in. The lots are also generous. - motorgo

This park was not good for our 40' motorhome and car but we found a double site and fit in for one night. We parked as far over to one site as possible with our slides. However, the manager came over about 7pm and asked us to move further over. There were plenty of empty sites available at this time of night & we couldn't believe he was worried about someone wanting to park so close next to us. If they did, they would have had enough room to pull in next to us. We told him this and said we wouldn't break everything down to move over a foot. So he charged us double. The sites are uneven with many trees to maneuver between. The campground roads were very dusty with people speeding through. It's a typical government campground with no facilities except for a reasonably clean vault toilet. There is a water faucet but no dump. This campground is reached by way of the side paved road which comes at a junction just north of Fort Steele at Hwy 93, 18 NE of Cranbrook. This side road reconnects at Hwy 93 approximately 20 miles south. From the north intersection go approximately 10 miles south on the side road. The campground is on the west side of the road. Across the road is Peckham's Lake and a day use area for swimming or boating, but power boats aren't allowed. There is a short trail from the campground to Norbury Lake but folks didn't seem to use this lake. - nbi600

We stayed here with friends while visiting Waterton Lake National Park. We are glad we stayed at this campground rather the Town Park. Much more room to spread out and much quieter. We would return to this campground if we visit here again. Very friendly person who registered us-which is always a positive. - borge007

We were placed in a field with hookups. The site was extremely unlevel and we were not even sure where our site ended and the next one began. We were placed in an area with no restroom and no shelter from the winds in spite of placing a reservation for our tent trailer a month before. Restroom had bird poop inside. Did not try the showers. Paid for 2 nights but after 70 mph winds and little sleep we left after one. Location is the ONLY thing this place has going for it! We would NOT stay here again! - frankltd

The nightly fee was $30 plus $5 for wi-fi. The Wi-fi was very slow and did not work sometimes. I don't think it was worth the additional $5. There is a gravel road, down in a small valley. We still had good view of mountains around the Waterton Park area. It is a ten minute drive into Waterton Park and town site. There is Buffalo viewing within one mile. There are few trees in park. It can be very windy. - shadetree

Level, gravel sites in a park-like setting. Plenty of grass, trees, and a walking trail around a pretty little lake. Clean, quiet park, and grass was mowed. Friendly, helpful staff. We couldn't get WiFi or TV reception (antenna), but would stay here again. - FranM

This is a very nice campground located on a lake near the small town of Granum. We stayed in one of the rear pull-through sites with 30 amp electric and water in the open with no trees. We did not have our cell phones or MiFi on while in Canada and could not pick up the campground Wi-Fi at our site. We were able to use our rooftop DirecTV satellite. Did not use the bathhouse or laundry. Owners were very friendly and helpful. There is a local fuel station, but be careful because they only accept debit or cash. We would stay here again if in the area. - roadking

Park-like setting - grass and big trees; very pretty and quiet. We found gravel sites to be quite level. We are PA, so paid half rate ($12.50). We didn't realize they had 30 amp; we chose our site based on tree location for our satellite dish, which is mounted on the roof of our motorhome. So 15 amp wasn't adequate to run more than one appliance (threw the breaker a few times), but was fine for one night. Would stay here again. - mjac

Campground is about six kilometers east of Waterton Lakes National Park. There is a wonderful view of the mountains from this campground. The problem is the amperage for the electricity. The service is 30 amp, but it is a very weak 30 amps. It was cold and rainy while we were here. Usually, we run 2 portable electric heaters on 30 amps to keep us warm, but we couldn’t run even one of the heaters without losing power. The park is nice, though, and the grounds are well-maintained. If you plan to be here when neither heat or air conditioning is needed, it’s a great place to camp at while visiting Waterton Lakes National Park. - Bobbi1948

Just a great place. Full hookup with so much space. At least 3 RV's could be in each site if they wanted. Easy walk to town and food and the lake. Great kayaking. - Spantz
Aug 2015 - $34.00
Love this campground. We had car problems so this was an easy walk into town, marina,etc.. The price includes the online reservation fee. While we could see the other campers there was enough room between sites. We enjoyed the shows at the Interpretive Center and the many paved walkways. Each night after dinner the deer came into the park. The only negative would be the numerous holes made by the ground squirrels. Some are break an ankle size. No fires due to dry conditions. - petpeople

This is a great place to stay. It is adjacent to the town of Waterton and the park has many great hiking and biking trails. The views are spectacular. The sites are spacious with many being pull through for easy access. The washrooms and showers are clean and plentiful. The only negative is that the sewer connection is in the centre of the site, under the RV. This creates a problem if you don't notice this until you are set up. - Camper_Guy

This is a hidden gem with nice level back-in sites with good utilities. The Wi-Fi works well but will time out after a period of time, just log back in. No cable and we were not able to receive any over the air channels. Easy to get to and easy to get around in. Very friendly host that will tell you about the area and things to do. We would stay here again. - dandg

The campsites are gravel with a paved internal road and are fairly level. The facilities are very clean. The showers are free. This campground is close to the town's amenities like the indoor pool. The campground is centrally located to the SW Alberta attractions. - L Langman

This is a park in serious need of a clean-up. There are junk or storage car/trucks everywhere. Doesn't deserve the good rating in Woodalls 2015. Nice river at back but really no way to access or sit by unless you are adventurous to climb a rocky dike. Piles of broken equipment, tables and all around junk. Electric sites are packed in like sardines. Still they allowed campfires if you paid, so the place was smoke-filled into the night. Site 46 with just 15 amps - no water or sewer, but nice shade to back into, but watch low tree branches. - FlyEasternAir

Since there aren't a lot of options in the area as far as other campgrounds, you kind of have to make do with this place. Older park, a lot of upgrades are needed: water connections was leaking bad and creating a huge puddle in the back of the site, electric hookup was scary (closed my eyes and prayed for the best when I hooked up), sewer connection is in a chunk of concrete that is broken, therefore leaking odours...
Lots ans lots and lots of traffic, no one cares about the speed limit, and they don't enforce it... Playground is an accident waiting to happen...
But since there aren't any other campground nearby, I guess this is what you're stuck with. Staff are very helpful and friendly though.
Laundromat needs major cleanup and upgrade. - Merveilleuse

We had a back-in near the office. Wifi was slow, lots of use. Older park with lots of permanent residents. Nice pool. I would go back. - retired fireman
