9 Parks near Hill Spring, Alberta
Sep 2016 - $50.00
A fun place to stay, the live music was very entertaining and the food was fantastic! The hosts are very welcoming. Close enough to Waterton lakes park for a day trip and the carriage museum in Cardston is a must see as well. We will definitely be back again. Close enough you can see the rockies from there. - MJB

This is a very nice, family run campground that is a little out of the way unless you search it out. You have great views of the mountains and farm countryside. Sites are grass, reasonably level, and about 60' long with perhaps 12' between RVs. Sites are 30A with water and there is a dump site available. I didn't see any 50A sites although their web site says they have some. I was able to get a weak Verizon signal on my mifi. There's no shade so all sites are good for satellite. If you are there on a Friday night, they serve a very good dinner and put on a musical show (for extra cost of course). Make sure you have a reservation if you want the dinner & show. Bathroom was clean and shower worked but it was a very small stall. - Danno

The owners are wonderful. Friendly, helpful, funny, and just terrific people who make you feel at home. The sites do not have sewer but there's a dump site available or "honey wagon services". We would love to come back and stay here again. The show, dance, and meals are all top notch. - Toby Maxx

Campground is about six kilometers east of Waterton Lakes National Park. There is a wonderful view of the mountains from this campground. The problem is the amperage for the electricity. The service is 30 amp, but it is a very weak 30 amps. It was cold and rainy while we were here. Usually, we run 2 portable electric heaters on 30 amps to keep us warm, but we couldn’t run even one of the heaters without losing power. The park is nice, though, and the grounds are well-maintained. If you plan to be here when neither heat or air conditioning is needed, it’s a great place to camp at while visiting Waterton Lakes National Park. - Bobbi1948

We had been staying at the Waterton Townsite campground, but were unable to extend our reservation over the weekend, thus we booked 2 nights at Waterton Springs. It is only 3 km outside the Ntl Park gate and across the road from the Buffalo Paddock. The full service sites, as you would expect, are side-by-side-by-side. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit (firewood $13). We were in site #61, which is at the end of a row, and when entered from the wrong direction, has a nice view of the mountains. WiFi is $5/day, showers are $1 for 6 minutes and laundry is $2.25 wash, $1 for 24 minutes drying. There is a lovely 1km prairie trail at the back of the campground. Staff are most friendly and helpful. - driftdiver1

We have stayed twice in this park. We only needed power for our camper. Had site 111 was large treed fire pit. Was a lovely campsite. Will stay here again.
Several years ago we stayed and we left several things behind. Called office they retrieved them for us. The operators are very warm friendly people I highly recommend this campground to people who love to camp. We will be back next year. - LynBriSteph

Basic campground close to Waterton NP. Nice personnel. Very clean bathroom and shower. (Coin operated shower. $1 for 4 min.) WiFi average. Verizon signal good. Gravel roads in. Gravel site with small amount of grass. Very close to neighbor. - smitty12

Quiet park with large sites. In late September, when we were there, there was no one in the office. It was handled much like the National Parks in the US. Pick out a spot, put your money in an envelope and you are done. We will stay here on our next visit to Cardston. - RagFtw

Delightful small campground along Pincher Creek, AB. Level back-in spots with picnic tables and fire rings. Friendly camp host! Showers are clean and included in camp fee. Firewood is available for purchase. A few sites will accommodate 40' units and sites are assigned by camphost. Cash, debit and credit cards accepted. Wifi worked great while we were there. Dump station and potable water near entrance. Propane is available at a nearby service station and a larger dump station at the Co-op 2 miles away (which is also a great place to hookup tow vehicles!) - Terry P

This is a "power only" park. No sewer or water at your site. However, there are potable water risers very close by. We could have run a water hose (maybe two) to the riser to top up our tanks had we needed to though, instead hauling jerry cans. The showers and bathrooms on site were spotless. Each site has a nice fire ring topped with an adjustable BBQ grate suitable for cooking over a wood fire. Free wifi but a bit weak. There is a sani-dump handy in the park as you depart. I don't believer there are any pull thru sites. - User3527

This is a great place to spend a night or even a few days while in Pincher Creek, AB. Electric only but good Wi-Fi. Dump Station and fresh water available. Host is very friendly and helpful. We stayed here, in the rain, for one night only, but would return. It is a very pretty little park right in Town and on the Pincher Creek. Lots of trees and grass. - Saskanna

Limited hours when office was open and self registration was in effect at time of visit. When I tried to register in person during evening business hours no one showed up. List of reserved sites on bulletin board and first come first serve for the rest. Our site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Electric was only 15 amp and I had to use a long extension cord and adapter to use it. Sewer connection was a home made affair with a corrugated pipe inside a wooden box that had a hole in the side where my sewer connector got pushed into the pipe. With my sewer support I was able to get a sold fit, but I have never seen such a wonky set up. No cable TV, but a couple of weak analog channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was available near the office only. I don't think I would bother coming back here again. - Onemoretrail

Park has great views of mountains around the area. Sites are not the most level I ever had but do work. Just outside the park you can see black bears on both sides of the highway. Water and electric worked just fine, however the sewer connection is in the middle of the gravel site and not at all easy to get to. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

We got lucky and were able to make a 5 day reservation, three days before arriving at the end of June. Not a recommended approach, book as far in advance as possible. This is a lovely open campground on the shores of Waterton Lake, surrounded on three sides by mountains. A full service pull-through site is just under $40 per night (Ntl Park entry fees extra). Our site was perfectly level and had commanding views of the surrounding mountains. As I am composing this review, a male deer is grazing on the grass outside my RV window. The picturesque little town of Waterton is less than a 5 minute walk from the campground. If you plan on cooking your own meals, bring food with you as selection is extremely limited and ridiculously overpriced. Diesel is not available in the town. The closest place for diesel is Mountain View about 20k East of the park and the closest full grocery store is in Pincher Creek about 50 km North East of the park. The town has free WiFi throughout and it is possible to connect from the campground. Both Bell and Rogers phones work in the park. - driftdiver1

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

This would have a better rating if water & sewer were available. Good park for hiking & biking. - User3196

This is a great place to stay for a family as the park is great and walking distance from all sites. If you want the power sites, you will need to book well in advance. Very quiet, great walking trails and people are very nice. there is a lake to fish in as well. I would recommend this site! Be forewarned however, if camping during mosquito season, you will leave that campground with the fast reflexes of a Kung Fu Master! - threeunderthreeSAHM

This is a rustic park with plentiful vault toilets, several potable water faucets but none at individual sites and no showers. The sites are shaded and private sites and approximately 25 with electricity. They are a couple of dollars more expensive. For RVs the lake is within walking distance via a nature trail. Separate tent sites are on the lake. Fishing, a boat ramp (small boats only), wildlife viewing, playground and numerous well marked trails are available. For ice fishing and cross country skiing in the winter there are small huts with wood burning stoves beside the river. A serene and scenic park approximately 5 miles from town. - caragamuffin
