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

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

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

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

A nice small park in Pincher Creek, we were a little surprised to find that the sites did not have water at the site. We came in with little water in our tanks; we were able to fill our tank before we backed in. The park is located next to a nice walking trail and close to the local museum. The camp hosts were very friendly. We would stay there again. - mamestra

The Park has no cell phone service. The host requires folks to leave something at the site to show that it is not abandoned. I was less than pleased to find my site taken by another camper. The Falls are quite lovely. It is located on the old highway. There are vault toilets. Wood is two bundles for $15.00. I'd stay here again. - User3761

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

Fantastic campground! Lovely views and very helpful and pleasant staff. Helped us park so we could make the most of the magnificent views. Plenty of space on grassed sites. Good 30amp electric and water. Sewer dump station on site. Wi-Fi in office area only, but very good overall. 2 local channels on TV. Nice location for visiting Waterton Lakes NP. Would definitely recommend this campground if you like peace and quiet away from everything. Nearest shopping is Cardston about 45 mins away. We did not stay over the weekend, but they do have barn dances and meals at weekends, which we heard were excellent. Would stay here again. - mcquin

Reservations were made by email and staff were friendly and caring. Campsite is near the highway so there is quite a bit of road noise. The 30 Amp electric was conveniently located and had a breaker at the pillar. The water was clean but distinctly chlorinated. Sites have gravel pads separated by grass with steel fire-pits. Washrooms are new and very clean with stainless-steel counters, are brightly lit and nicely decorated. Laundry room has two coin operated washers and two dryers. - North_fork

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

If going to the National Park, this is a good option. Roads are a little rough, everything is dirt and gravel, but the park is nice. No TV access without a satellite. WiFi is weak. Campground is about 3 miles from the National Park, and about 15 miles from the US border. - ta96silver

We stayed here with friends while visiting Waterton Lake National Park. We are glad we stayed at this campground rather the Town Park. Much more room to spread out and much quieter. We would return to this campground if we visit here again. Very friendly person who registered us-which is always a positive. - borge007
