12 Parks near Devon, Alberta
Jun 2016 - $32.00
The road leading to the park goes through a golf course fairway, so I was half expecting a golf ball to whack the side of our RV. Thankfully, that didn't happen. Nice location down near the North Saskatchewan River. Registration was fast as we had a reservation. Office staff moved us to a bigger site as the park wasn't full. Our site turned out to be an end one with plenty of space on the side of our entrance door. However, the slideout on the other side would have encroached on the adjacent site. Amenities included a picnic table and fire ring. Hookups were located at the rear corner and they all worked fine. No cable TV and only managed one channel of OTA TV (due to our location below the surrounding terrain), so satellite might be a challenge as well. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. This place is family oriented, so you can expect a certain amount of noise from all the kids playing around. There is a boat ramp for access to the river. We would stay here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

We have stayed here a couple times and it's always a pleasure. Some of the sites are a little close together and if your neighbours have a campfire, your RV gets smoke in it, but we only had this problem once. Most of the sites are spacious and close to amenities, nice size parks and fields. Beautiful and park-like grounds. Super friendly staff! Always a joy! - Manda

Beautiful stopover on the Saskatchewan River and outskirts of Edmonton AB. There are a lot of seasonal campers but they were friendly and not too junky. Our site was a long back in but it wasn't very level. They have a variety of sites in the park from a few very long pull-throughs to grassy back-ins. Ample open grass space for kids to play and multiple playgrounds. Satellite access is iffy with the trees as most sites are shaded. Rogers cell phone coverage was weak. Park Wi-Fi only worked if I was close to the office. - Danno

First impression: Roads to this RV Park are VERY BAD. Second impression: Office staff could learn a lot from charm school. Third impression: WOW, have the management ever walked and really looked at the sites which they assign? By far, the worst site that I have ever been assigned, on this 4 month trip thru the lower 48 and Alaska. It took (4) 2X6 planks to level the 5th wheel to get the frig to operate. Would I stay here again? Probably would, as Edmonton does not have a lot to offer RV travelers. We stayed here three days. - wyoming

The road in is without a doubt the worst road in Western Canada (not the campground's fault). Friendly check in although it seems the golf check in is more important. Wi-Fi did not work for the first three days. The general impression from the staff was "oh well." Have been here three days now and the bathrooms have not been cleaned. Showers are dirty and no hand paper-towel. You would think that booking for a week you might get a round of golf or a two for one. Nope. All in all, for the price (we camp all over Alberta and Montana) this is the most expensive campground with the least appeal. If not for it's proximity to the city, I don't would not stay here for long: or ever again for that matter. - GopherSlayer

This park is OK, except for the price. $48 per night is exorbitant, in our opinion, considering that the facilities are no better than far less expensive places. We have stayed here before (at exorbitant rates) but continue to return because the campground is close to relatives. If that family connection did not exist, we would definitely stay somewhere else. - wandrr

Campground is very dated but acceptable. You will have to back out of the dump station. Fresh water tap is on the wall of the washroom facility but is not properly labeled. Faucet has to be held on the open position when filling ones tank. If using a GPS, DO NOT ENTER their street address, you will end up in a residential area with narrow streets. Enter 1 Royal Way which will get you are the end of the road going down to the campsite. Campsite sign is across the street from 1 Royal Way. Wi-Fi is available, but at a cost. - neilmcb2002

This has the potential to be an awesome campground. However, their idea of an electrical hookup is in some cases a skinny little 15 amp extension cord running through the trees. Also, at the time of our stay the ski hill next door was under construction with heavy equipment and trucks starting at 6:30am. The staff was rude and the washrooms/showers weren't clean - there were even beetles in the washrooms. Furthermore, there are no fire pits only the little camp stoves held over from the 70's. Wi-Fi is available, but it'll cost you $$$$ and only for one device, make it count. Won't be coming back!! - Squirrel66

A very nice campground right in the city but in between trees and next to Whitemud Creek. The sites are very private and the washrooms and showers are in good condition and clean. Unfortunately, the laundry was not yet open during our stay with our travel trailer due to the freezing temperatures. Staff is very friendly. Firewood is available against fee. There is a playground for kids available. The nearby Whitemud Drive is not bothering, especially not on the sites further to the back. - dbo73

Excellent Lion's campground! Rates vary by site type. We had a 30A W/E gravel back in on the north side which met our needs. The most popular sites for short termers are probably the north side 50A pull thrus which were about 70' long with 20' of grass between sites. On the park south side, the treed sites are older & well spaced with many suitable for big rigs. I saw some as long as 100'. Interior roads are easy with no tree issues. The older south side sites have an unkempt appearance as the tree underbrush is wild and overgrown between sites. But that adds privacy for those sites too. The back-ins looked pretty easy as the gravel road was generally 15' wide. On the far south side, they had grass back-ins for small rigs. All sites looked very level. Bike paths connect to the park at both ends and take you all over the town. Laundry was adequate. They charge $1/day per dog. Park wifi worked but was limited. Rogers had weak cell phone coverage with LTE data. My Dish Trav'ler only picked up satellite 119 despite clear skies so we're still too far north for reliable satellite. There's no cable TV but we picked up several good channels OTA from Edmonton. Family friendly with new playground & alcohol restrictions. - Danno

This park is split into two parts; one has pull-thru, full hook-up (30 or 50 amp) and the other is more treed and has only 15 amp (power only). So if you like a more rustic camp spot, you want the trees and if you want all (or most) of the amenities you can have that also. There is no pool or spa but there is a good size club house and the location is not too far from Edmonton. There is no traffic or train noise but it is on the flight path to Edmonton International which means you will hear planes. The pull through spots are large and there is a fair amount of room between them. We disconnected but only because we wanted to tour around with the truck. We have stayed here before and will again in future. - cachencouple

This campground has two parts - one older and shaded, the other newer and open. We stayed in the new section where access is very good for big rigs. In general, this is a top-notch campground, well away from highway noise. The access gate adds security, and the new facilities are excellent. We didn't use the laundry, but it appears to be really good. We will probably stay here again. - wandrr

This campground is in an industrial area of the city and hard to get to. It is full of mostly seasonal people and the overnight folks are in the back row. The two young ladies that helped us on the front desk were excellent, and the grounds were very well kept, but the sites themselves were not great and most importantly the Wifi did not work at all at the sites. It was also very expensive in relation to what you received. One benefit is they have an RV bay and technicians on site along with propane sales. - Lee and Trace

This is a massive park, hundreds of units most of which appear permanent, but better quality ones.
Two problems, noise from the freight trains sounding horns all night and pathetic wifi that is almost impossible to get on, when you eventually get on it lasts about 2 minutes then you are off for hours. According to reception nothing can be done, I checked the download speed when I did get on, less than 1mb, which is the problem. The problem is that they can do something about it but either don't care or are too cheap to spend any money. Well they will not get more of mine. - Codliveroil

Stayed here overnight. They put us on the upper end of campground with the other pull thrus. Totalof 375 spaces in campground. Probably 95% full due to the families evacuating from Fort MacMurray fire. Space was level and dry. Elec and water worked as they were supposed to. Difficult to find it from south. Be patient. Once in the campground, difficult to find your way out. Central dumpster is a long way from where we were camped at for the night. Did not use the bathroom facility. Easy access to main highway out of town. Would stay here again. - Mark and Evelyn

This RV park is in desperate need of an up grade. There were huge pot holes in the roadways. The bathrooms just need help and a lot of it. Great location as it is just on the edge of the city. - travelbugged

We choose to stay here because of its close proximity to the city of Edmonton. That was the only pro. The sites were short and square to the road, which made backing in difficult. Once in, there was not room to leave the tow vehicle in front without unhooking and parking sideways. Even at that, we had to park partially on the grass. A lot of the sites (including ours) were not level, so extra blocking was needed under the wheels. The washrooms/shower houses were deplorable and in dire need of upgrading. The toilet stalls were shoddily built, with a rail above the doors that I hit my head on almost every time. Internet was only available in the main building. Rules are strictly enforced. There was no flexibility on late checkout times, even though the park was not that full. Recommendation: Only stay here as a last resort. - powerstroker58

After camping here numerous times over the summer of 2011 for work purposes we tolerated the dirty park, unfriendly staff and noisy area due to trucks on the nearby highway, our main reason for returning was due to the convenience of shopping and work. WiFi is an issue here and we were not able to get access it over the duration of our numerous trips. We always abide by the rules of the park which are very, very strictly enforced. The prompting to write this review came with our last visit. We notified the park that we would not be able to leave at the appointed check-out time (11am)and offered to pay for an extra day due to the extra 2 hours we were delayed in leaving. We were told that it was not a problem however when we were hooking up our trailer to leave at 1pm another staff member came by and reminded us that we needed to pay due to our delayed departure. We told her we had offered and she left minutes later another staff member came by with our Visa swiped and used and a paper for us to sign thereby billing us the extra night as we were pulling out. Sorry Shakers Acres but our loyalty is no more and we will never return. Good luck in the future and I hope you treat your future loyal patrons with more respect and integrity. - John1221

Well-maintained park with very few trees. Level, gravel campsites with approximately fifteen feet of grass between each site. Small playground for young children. Has a community center for showers, restrooms and laundry facility. Picnic tables. Full hook-ups. Fire pits. Wi-Fi decent. TV reception okay with few channels available. No privacy. - 2_Alaskans

We stayed here a couple of years ago when it was under construction and frankly not impressed at that time. This stay we were pleasantly surprised with how well they have progressed. Location of sewer and electrical outlets can be a problem when entering with a big rig and toad, they are near the back of the site so when entering with a toad you will have to unhook and park the toad in front. But overall quite level and nicely graveled. Staff were friendly and helpful. - DramaShare

The park is nicely layed out both for big rig access and utilities. Large spaces, open areas good for satellite.
The office staff are very nice and happily accommodated us as we were uncertain how long our stay would be.
Great location for visiting Edmonton and area, as well easy to find if travelling Highway 16.
I would have rated higher but it does lack a pool/clubhouse which is unfortunately common in Alberta parks.
Will defiantly stay again when in the area. - razz

Showers and bathhouse clean but needed updating. Mainly long term tenants (appeared to be construction workers). Very quiet. WiFi spotty. Good for one night stop. We would stay there again. - frankltd

Newer park, very clean and well kept. Showers, bathrooms and laundry area are all immaculate. Gated park. Charge for showers which is a bit of a disappointment when paying $50 Cdn per night. Upon check in, they tell you what their water pressure is, don't see that very often. Grounds are well kept. Each site has a patio made of pavers with a table on it. Would rate this as one of the best parks we have stayed in. - wfd

This was the nicest gated park. It's new and trees small right now. Walk through gate to area shops. Nice patio areas with grass and very spacious. The name speaks of the type of park it is and would definitely stay here again. - DRBurns

CG is protected 24/7 by gate. Roads are paved and wide. Sites are gravel, spacious and level. Travel time to Edmonton is about 40 minutes. - Rd yacht

Very quiet and well maintained rv park. Park, playground, and trails nearby. Was told there is a dog park across the road but did not go due to having to cross tall, muddy grass areas with short legged, small dog. Friendly and helpful staff. 30 minutes to downtown Edmonton via easy access to freeways. - rvYoungster16

Immaculate campground. Lots of walking and cycling trails but not much else to do. Very much "city camping". - Cathyhew
Aug 2015 - $50.00
Clean, organized and well managed. Lots of long term campers in high-end motorhomes / rigs. Good location for Saint Albert but perhaps a little expensive at $50/night.
Wifi absolutely rubbish, full signal but wouldn't load any websites - management are aware and are working on a solution (apparently).
Take a 50A adapter or rent one from the site management at $6/night.
Suspect our pitch was used solely for short-termers as looked like it needed a bit of a spruce up but did the job and was pretty level none-the-less. - Pete10K
