Very nice people run this little park in the middle of the prairie. We were on our way west when we decided to stop at Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump and this park is close to there. Nice wide sites and everything was clean. We stayed using the Good Sam discount. - vagabond8400

Old but clean. Separate bills for laundry, and Laundry room located Wi-Fi. Sites gravel and well spaced. Close to Head Smash Buffalo Jump which is well worth seeing. - mjtesky

Stopped for one night. Very quiet with only a couple of other units on-site. Suspect it would be a bit crowded at busier times as the serviced sites are open and closed together. Check in was quick and friendly. Campground is a bit worn but just fine for a few days. Staff were friendly and accommodating and let is pick out site. Power, water and WiFi were good. Restrooms were clean and looked recently updated. Best access was of Hwy 3. Would stop in again. - sfw1058

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

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

In all honesty, I don't recall the exact price, but thought it was very reasonable.
This little campground is a gem! Easy access to the highway, well-marked, good roads within the park. We fit our 45 ft motorhome into a back-in spot with room to spare. There was only 30 amp electric service and water. There are a few full hookup sites available but none were open during our stay. No trees on our site, so the satellite worked great.
Would definitely stay here again! - MerBee

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

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
Jul 2015 - $27.00
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

Expected more based on GS rating. Sharp turn off frontage road to enter the RV park. Must own the road. Leaving the RV park and heading east requires a u turn through a turnout. Registration queue was nice. Staff was not very welcoming. We were assigned to the Arizona section in the back where most of the bigger rigs were located. Paved interior roads take you to a huge uninviting gravel area with one tree per site and otherwise not a bit of landscaping or grass. Sites were muddy but otherwise level. The area when you first enter the RV park is nicer with grass and more trees. No cable, no over the air and no Free WiFi despite what they tell you. Tried several times at office to get on and couldn't. Utilities worked fine. We were in the back row with highway right above us. Very noisy. Showers were not free but restrooms were nice. For what they charge, would not come back here. - VegasVagabonds

The campground is right beside a highway, so it got noisy at time for our hybrid travel trailer. Our site was level, but there were no privacy between each site. WiFi was only available at the building, and not at our site. We had a pull-thru site, but at $67, it seemed rather expensive. At the time, Costco in Calgary was selling $100 Gift Certificate for $79.99, and that brought the price down to a more reasonable level. There were activities at the club house, such as pancake breakfast and kids' activities, but we did not use. - Htt_AB

Access to this RV resort could not be more straightforward, with excellent signage along Hwy # 3. Sites are side-by-side with no privacy, though each site has a picnic table but no fire pit. There is a pool and laundry facilities. WiFi is a joke. There is a weak signal at the office. You can purchase WiFi for your site but I was told that it only works when there are no clouds in the sky. The name of the campground is accurate, in that it does have a bridge view, however the campground also backs onto a major highway, so you cannot escape the noise when the big rigs pass by - I guess they didn't want to call it "Bridgeview with noisy highway traffic RV resort". The Alberta campground book lists the price of a full service pull-through site at $48, so I questioned why I was being charged $65 for an overnight stay. She laughed and said that was the weekday rate for a very small RV in the off season. At $67, this campground is a total rip off. - driftdiver1
