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

This park is badly in need of major upgrades. Electric/water connections are not safe, and all coupled together inconveniently at the back of the site. Many of the concrete pads at the sites are broken up. Trees are overgrown, not maintained. After jockeying around with the RV to try to angle into the site with the trees, we asked to make a very minor trim to one of the tree branches in order to not puncture one slide cover. We got a lot of flack, 'oh, everyone says they need to cut the trees'....and then finally 'we don't give a x@# what you do' from the woman running the place. While the young lady checking us in was friendly and helpful, the folks that live on site and run it--not so, not 'customer focused' at all.
If you want a fire--you rent a fire ring, which comes with the wood. You are not allowed to bring in your own wood.
The park itself is just very shabby looking, so you can see why it isn't heavily used, despite being one of the very few options in the area. Looks like they had cable at one time, but lines are cut and useless. Can't get satellite for all of the untrimmed trees. And you'll want to watch TV, because nothing much else to do. The town, Fort Macleod? Forget it! Feels like a forgotten ghost of a town trying desperately to make itself a tourist stop. Don't bother! The only thing worth seeing in the area is Head-Smashed-In Buffalo jump; my recommendation is do that as an hour or so stop along the way to somewhere else. - Desert Girl 4932

Very nice little park, friendly staff, short distance to town, off highway to minimize traffic noise. It is right on the river and lovely sunsets! Would definitely stay here again. - DRBurns

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

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

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

Don't believe posted nightly rates. They don't include pet fee, taxes and "booking fee"! Only wifi is inside laundry room with three chairs. Pay showers. Nice enough place but come on! WiFi should be everywhere! Also no TV. Bare bones amenities with the highest prices we've seen in Canada. - Jenna69

A nice and clean park, but you pay for it. You'd think that for the high price your shower would at least be free. But no. Free WiFi is not true at your site. It's Tango in the park. The freeway is in the back yard, so highway noise is constant.
Access is strange. Going eastbound on 3, you take a roundabout way to get here and make a sharp turn off of a westbound freeway ramp to get into the park. You can't go east from here; you have to go back (westbound) to the exit where you got off eastbound and make a complete loop to get on eastbound.
It's not bad, just weird and inconvenient. Heading westbound, take the exit after crossing the river. Taking the exit prior to that requires a U turn and entering a busy freeway with absolutely no on-ramp. - Navadabob

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
