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." We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

See the High level bridge Streetcar and get off at the Legislature building to look around. Walk Old Strathcona.

West Edmonton Mall is lots of walking but definitely worth a stop to see the different things it houses like the skating rink, amusement park, wave pool and slides, and even a sea lion show in the afternoon. We just watched that from the second floor.

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. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a couple of truck stops for fuel about a mile north of the campground on the main highway (Hwy 16. Yellowhead Hwy) Plenty of room there to fuel MH towing a trailer. We came in from the south via Hwy 2, then west on 19 and north on 60. Little difficult to find but it is there like the Milepost said it would be.

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. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

A good overnight place to stay. We had a shady spot in a treed area. Helpful staff. Spaces are a little close but...
Campground is a little tired and there is lots of nearby construction going on, but fine for overnight. Wifi really only works at the office. The park needs to invest in a wifi system that can handle a park of its size. Lots of full timers but they kept their spaces tidy and were friendly.

There are stores and gas stations nearby. The park is near Devon so should probably be listed as Devon rather than Edmonton. The sign says 8 miles from Edmonton Mall.

The spots are all small. They say the pull thrus are 75 feet yet we couldn't leave the truck connected to a 32' trailer because it was out on the roads. Total maze to get to the back where the pull thru are. Lots of cars parked everywhere because there is no room in the spots making it hard to move around. No overflow parking for these cars. Bathroom are fairly clean. Showers take a dollar but you do get hot water. Laundry room is busy but lots of washers. Gym is available but normally you have to go in through the office. WiFi works when it wants to. They also have a good sized store. And an RV store walking distance. But the power does work great. And they are open year round. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I can really recommend this park, friendly people that go out of their way to accommodate their guests.

The sites are well maintained and offer all amenities, a well stocked store. Roads are in good condition. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park appears to be mostly for permanent installs--primarily oilfield and refinery workers. The sites are very crowded and it is hard to maneuver large rigs into most of them. The next time we are in Edmonton we will probably stay somewhere else. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice flat park. Level spots. Some were tight to get into with larger motorhomes. Nice people in the office. We would stay again when in the area. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times in the past years. It is pretty much an OK RV park, but their claim of Wi-Fi should say "occasionally". They kept saying they were working on it. The other problem is not the direct responsibility of the RV park, but we had very poor cell phone reception. Every time we checked our phones it kept switching between "Leaving Service Area" and "Entering Service Area". This made making calls difficult plus our batteries had trouble lasting 24 hr. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were disappointed in this park. While it has a above average Good Sam rating, it appeared rough around the edges. Restroom stalls were painted a dark brown, almost black, color. Made it very hard to see. Laundry had several out of order machines. One quit while we were using it. Roads were very dusty. In fairness there has been a large influx of pipeline construction workers that, while nice people, their vehicles contribute to the excess dust and dirt in the park.

Easy access from highway. Office staff quite friendly. Most sites are incredible crowded, ugly, but we were given one of the best 5 in the full campground, next to grassy area with playground. Noise from the highway can be heard even after midnight. We are just passing by so that's OK with us. Wi-Fi does not work, in case you see the ad on the Milepost and head here in search of Wi-Fi. I work even when I travel and to me it's important to have access from my site, so I can get up early and do work from my site. If I had been given a site in other areas of the campground I would have probably asked for a refund. I am very happy about the site we got, but pretty much everything else is quite dumpy.

What a dump!! Sites are very close together, some permanent folks units are so old and dilapidated they are held together with ratchet straps and duct tape... No lie!! Interior roads are dusty and rutted. No dogs are allowed within the park. The back pull through sites are next to a storage lot that contains some units that came over on the Mayflower. Oh, the rates are much too high for what you get as well. Only positive was that the sites were fairly level. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Basically a big, dusty, trailer village. No ambiance. 95% of people are permanent. OK for a night or two but not as a destination. Not much choice close to Edmonton, and this may be as good as it gets. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Just like most reviewers have said, this is a place where most sites seem to be taken by people living there. The roads are littered with construction trucks, and it definitely doesn't create a nice camping ambiance. I reserved a 30amp site, but when I got there, they only had a 50amp site for me. My trailer does not use 50 amps. The cost for a 50 amp site is more than it is for a 30 amp site, but do you think they would only charge me for a 30 amp site since they changed me to a 50 amp site? NO! They charged me for 50 amps. I will never stay here again based on this! No fire pits either so not sure how it can be named "Glowing Embers".

Sites are way too small. If you do plan on staying here make sure you tell them that your trailer is about 10 feet longer than it is because you won't get a site that you can actually park your vehicle in. Most all vehicles are parked in the main driving aisle, making backing in to your site near impossible. They do not clean the sites after the previous tenants. There was garbage left on our picnic table. Sites are very unkempt and unclean. Grass is uncut. Sites are not level and maybe 15 feet across. There are little to no trees between sites or any type of privacy. It's like they don't care about their campers but are very eager to take your money. Our sewer cap was missing when we arrived at our campsite, and our breaker kept tripping all night. I will never stay here again, and I will never recommend that anyone stay at this 'park'. We camped at Glowing Embers RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
