We stayed in Beaver Creek campground with a family group. We had 5 sites for our group. Sites are very large and easy to navigate. All of the sites are in a loop within a meadow so there's no privacy between sites, but because they're so large and well spaced it was not an issue. Many trails to hike and great lake access. This is a real gem in Alberta. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped at Beaver Creek, and we had Power, Water, and Sewer. The site was level, with large space between sites, but no privacy. There were no shelter within the campground. Showers were free. There was a bike and boat rental place by the lake, of which we took advantages. We camped during the week, and not a lot of people were there. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

The main advantage to this place is proximity to the Cypress Hills and to Elkwater. The campground itself is nothing special, and seems to be the favorite place for lots of party-goers. Still, facilities were adequate and there was a beat up basketball court that occupied my kids for hours. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

In this Alberta Provincial park there are many smaller campgrounds all around the town of Elkwater. We stayed in Firerock but there's also Ferguson Hill, Lakeview, Elkwater, Beaver Creek, Lodgepole, Old Baldy etc. You get the idea. At Firerock there is power but no water service - fill up with potable water at the sani dump. There's only 1 sani dump with 4 stations for all these parks. I waited for an hour and 15 minutes to dump. Park is nice, sites are quite small - barely room for my F-150 and 21' travel trailer in there. A fair bit of garbage around the gravel. Beaches on lake very nice, lots of boats, Elkwater is a very cute little town with a few restaurants and massive ice cream cones at the gas station. Lovely scenery too. Will be back there again for sure! Some nice hikes through the park too, take a stick to beat away cougars though. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in Old Baldy. There are several campgrounds one beside the other; check in all at the same entrance office. Very nice location. Staying in a somewhat mountainous area after days of traveling through the prairies is a relief. Our rate was for a pull through water and electric site including taxes. The site was spacious, very level and had good hookups. Unfortunately it was raining all night so we didn't hike on one of the nice looking trails. We would have stayed longer but next morning it was still raining and all the trails were muddy and uninviting. However, this is a very nice place to stay and hike or enjoy the lake. There is no Wi-Fi in the parks and we couldn't steal a signal from a nearby lodge either (rangers tip). When in the area we would stay again and take the 35 km detour from the Trans Canada Highway, it's worth it. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cypress Hills is in southern Alberta about 60 km south east of Medicine Hat, Alberta. The town of Elkwater is adjacent to Elkwater Lake just off Highway 41 which continues south to the USA. We stayed at the Beaver Creek campground but there are others including Old Baldy and Lakeview which are part of the Alberta segment of the Cypress Hills. This Provincial Park has many services including a grocery store, visitors center, a pavilion, boatdock etc. The Cypress Hills area is very popular with western Canadians. The employees are very client focused and provide survey forms at your campsite. They are keen to do a good job. They are very friendly. The bathrooms are very clean and modern. We were fortunate to see fireworks across Elkwater Lake at dusk which were very impressive, as part of 'Park day festivities'. The Beaver Creek campground has small paved sites which was quiet after 11 pm. There is a small beach area which was busy. Dogs are not permitted on the sandy beach of Elkwater Lake. The place was sold out and many people reserve sites on line. We highly recommend this campground, provincial park and region of Canada. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
