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

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

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

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

We arrived late in the afternoon and were given a back-in site close to the main office, which houses a fitness facility, laundry, pay showers, and toilets. The bathroom looked clean. All utilities worked well. Sites are short and relatively small but we have been in RV parks where they are even smaller. There are a lot of trailers staying here. RV service is on the road driving in. Some families staying here are from the Fort McMurray area. One little boy commented to my husband that "his house has burned down." - Mother of 3 boys

Park is hard to get to, due to location at intersection of two highways with limited access, and bad map in Woodall's. They do have good signs once you are within about a mile of the park. Huge place with RVs crammed in, but not many choices in Edmonton. Lots of in/out traffic early and late, which we heard because our site was close to the entrance. Price was good for the hookups. - garlina

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

One of the 5 best campgrounds we've ever stayed at. Service is like Concierge Service at a Monaco Hotel... Park has lots of full-timers driving massive coaches, fifth wheels and Class A. Makes for a very nice campground. They do accept smaller units without a problem. Manager lives on site and is helpful, and then some.
Facilities are extremely clean, all connections are state of the art.
Manager extremely knowledgeable of attractions, and is very friendly.
This campground sets the bar very high... - Merveilleuse

Just a few KM from Edmonton. Full hook-ups at each level, gravel site; 15/30/50 amps; wide streets; Wi-Fi; land lines; coin showers and laundry; restrooms; fire pits and picnic tables at each site; horseback riding; dog run; walking trails. Nice owners. Quiet. Train runs past at about midnight, but didn't bother us at all. Some winterized sites for seasonal residents. Lovely, rural surroundings. Great spot from which to visit,or commute to, Edmonton. We had a 50 amp site. All utilities are excellent and the Wi-Fi is strong. - Iris

We were parked there in a 40 foot diesel motor home in a back in site cause all the pull through sites didn't have sewer hook ups. My site was totally unlevel and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get it level. To make matters worse it rained a couple of days and the dirt roads were not the best I've seen. I don't believe I'll ever stay there again. It's too high for what you get. - Bob2K

Wi-Fi available for a fee, but unreliable and often not working. Gated access, small lake (pond) frontage. Very close to highway and freeway, lots of traffic noise 24 hours. Close to shopping, gas, and an easy drive to Edmonton. - RoseMarie

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

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

Tried to set up our coach in site 150. Was sloped to front beyond auto level system tolerance. Was then moved to 159, better, but too soft for coach jacks, sank 4 inches. When we checked out, my wife tripped at entrance to office and scarped leg and knee, bruised arm and wrists. I asked office for first aid kit to no avail. They stood around looking at us like we were from Mars. There was no offer to call ambulance or offer any medical attention. They claim to be a 5 star resort....far from it. The place is owned by 4 partners who don't know anything about customer service including how to make a proper site for Big Rigs. Also, be careful when pulling into sites, the power and water and sewer services are incorrectly installed 1/3 into the gravel pad where you are supposed to park you unit. Amateurs, not worth the $54 CDN we paid per night. I asked if they plan on putting in concrete pads, you guessed it, a big NO. They have been open for 4 years, you would think they would have learned something. I would not stay here again! - BigBear

The park was very nice. It is newer, and very well cared for. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The only downside was the WiFi was non-existent for the three days we were there. The excuses were typical of most parks:
1. We've been having problems with it, and someone is coming to look at it tomorrow.
2. I just work here, and don't have the code to reset it.
3. Try it again in an hour or so. It might be up by then. (Of course, it never was.)
It never did work. I don't think most parks with poor WiFi realize how much future business they lose by advertising it, and then not telling you it's not working until you inquire if it's working or not, after you're set up. My wife and I keep a list of parks with good WiFi, and it is not very long. Those are the parks that get our repeat business. Although Diamond Grove is a very nice campground, we will not be back because of the poor to non-existent WiFi. When on the road, it's how we RV'rs keep in contact with friends, family, business, and finance. - Hiflyer

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
