Pulled in for an overnighter on our way from Montana to Banff, Canada. Very well maintained and conveniently located RV campground. It is located along the Sheep River, but you are not able to get a spot overlooking the water. It's a short 1-3 minute walk to the river and there is a nice walkway alongside it. This walkway will also take you into Old Town Okotoks with some nice little shops and restaurants.
The spaces were good size, we had a pull through but there were back ins as well. Check in was smooth by the camp hosts and they escorted us to the site and ensured we knew how to hook up and that the power was on at the box. The bathrooms were clean, however they do charge $1CAD for the showers. I looked in there and didn't see any adjustment knobs, so I'm not sure how one changes the temperature or water pressure.
Next to the campground is a nice park with playground for the kids, really convenient for families. For wifi, they had a pay as you go with the first hour being free, then $5 for 24 hours. We used the one hour option and this was probably the fastest wifi connection we've had on our drive from TN to AK.
The other convenient thing about this location is that Okotoks is a growing and well planned suburb. They have all the big box stores one would need for resupply, everything from Costco to Wal Mart to a bunch of eateries. It's a good place to restock if you're traveling through and the prices were reasonable for Canada. Overall, we'd stay here again for a day or two. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Earlier reviewers said it cost $40 a night plus charges for dogs. This web site asks for costs in US dollars, so the site for us at the current exchange rate was actually $30 a night, which includes full hookups plus cable. The campground is located along the Sheep River and it looked like the river occasionally required an evacuation of the campground. Our arrival was handled expediently and pleasantly, and we were escorted to our site by a staff member. There are pull-through and back-in sites. This is a gated park, very well run. The campground was full or nearly so during our 3 night mid-week stay. We arrived after a period of rain, so there was some mud on our site and on the roads. Some more gravel would have helped with that. Sites were dirt and gravel, level, and a reasonable distance apart, with lush grass for the picnic tables. Wi-fi was available, one hour each 24 hours for free or $4.95 per day per device. Okotoks is a bedroom community for Calgary so the mass exodus north on weekday mornings is very busy. There was plenty of shopping and restaurants available within walking distance and the off-road bike trail network was extensive; pick up the trails right at the campground. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again when in the area. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping and restaurants are about half a mile up the hill or across the bridge heading downhill a little. This campground is perfect for visiting Spruce Meadows, the premier show jumping facility in North America. It's about 18 km from the campground. Calgary is about twice that distance.

Small park (61 sites) conveniently located in downtown Okotoks right alongside the Sheep River. It is a great place for families with access to the public park and walking trails right beside the park. Restrooms are kept immaculate and firewood is available at the office. Staff assist parking all rigs as pull-through sites are limited with the majority of the sites requiring backing into. It is well kept and staff are friendly and helpful. Good Spot!

We stopped here for the night on our way back to the states after visiting the Canadian Rockies. The site was $38 but we were charged $2 for each of our two small dogs. Thought that was a little much. Especially since they didn't leave our site and we pick up after them. Not sure if I saw any "poop" stations or not. The entrance to the CG is immediately after turning off the main highway and signage is bad. We missed it and ended up having to go "around the block" to get back. We are looking for an easy in and out for our overnighters and this was not it. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for 3 nights. Very clean. Easy access for big rigs. Staff very helpful, will direct you to your site. Gated. Right in Okotoks so shopping was very accessible. Charged $2.00 a day for the little dog. Only about 30 minutes to Calgary. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, quiet, clean park. Level, gravel sites with trees and grass. TV cable and WiFi (Tengo). Escort to Site. $46 reflects $2 charge for each of our 3 dogs. A little pricey, but we would stay here again. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice little campground, city owned but run by the Lions. It was destroyed in 2013 floods, so it is nicely re-done. Pull throughs are large with plenty of width for slides and awnings. Utilities work well. When it rains it gets very soupy and muddy (they need more gravel). Also, no laundry here and the only place in town is a ripoff. So plan on doing laundry before or after. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and helpful staff. When we arrived we were in a stall that was too small, so they moved us to a nicer pull-through stall that was adequate for our truck and trailer. They guide you into the sites; garbage is picked up twice a day. Very clean and well kept. Beautiful grassy sites with fire ring. Firewood available through the store, but a little pricey. Gated campsite and we felt very safe. Would definitely recommend that people stay here. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean & well run. The rules are strictly enforced. 1 hour free WI-FI; after that you have to pay Tengo. The attendant guided us to our site and helped us back in. The bathrooms were very clean. The sites were well kept, watered and had lush green grass. The utilities were well located and in good condition. The park had key card security with a gate. There is a public park and river across the street with a walking trail along the river. A very nice RV park but not a place to party.

First things first: Wi-Fi is pitiful and almost non existent. Tengo of course and we have had nothing but grief when this company has been involved. No laundry. Now the pluses. You are right in the heart of Okotoks, handy to shopping and very good jump off to Calgary. If we were visiting Calgary, this would be the place we would hang our hats. Park is part of Sheep River City park. The Sheep river runs adjacent to the the RV park and is great for swimming. A network of wonderful walking/cycling paths start here and you can walk and bike for hours. Sites are close but well laid out. We loved this park.

Nice people, nice little park but more for local families than for travelers. We were here for 11 days as part of a Calgary Stampede caravan. The rate based on the 2 nights we came in early. Back in sites are adequate and we were lucky enough to get roof top satellite. The big negative was the power which was only 30 amp and went off 4 or 5 times for just enough time to stop the microwave clock. The road down into the park is very busy with people using the river. It is too far from Calgary or the parks. We would not stay here again. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Motorhome.

Pretty location next to a park that borders the river and a bike/walk path. If you want directions from the couple that manages the park, get them from the man. We got 3 sets of directions (to the same location) from the woman and couldn't follow any of them. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is located in a park along the Sheep River just south of downtown Okotoks. The campground lost 18 campsites in a Spring flood, but the Lions Club hope to have them all fixed up for next year. There are walkways along both sides of Sheep River with a pedestrian bridge connection. Very pleasant staff. Note there are gate barriers which are closed at 11:00 p.m. until 7:30 a.m. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Motorhome.

Daily fee per pet, large dogs discouraged, some breeds banned. Cable TV only available in full service sites (37), 7-8 of these are taken up by the Lions members who man the campground, most of the rest by seasonal campers. Well maintained, secure, great area for children, with playground and shallow river. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
