14 Parks near Spring Lake, Alberta
Jun 2015 - $61.00
$47.00 Cdn. Plus a one time reservation fee of $10.00, for what I don't know. The place was not busy. Gravel site, 30 amp, no sewer.
This would be our last visit here. - wclogger1

We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday night and we were treated like we just committed the biggest sin. My gosh, just showing up without a reservation, how dare you.
the young blond girl behind the reception desk finally allowed us to stay for the night, but no sewer. That was fine with us since we were very tired.
We price included WiFi on our campsite for just one device (extra devices $5.00 each) but that didn't work at all. Back to the not so clever blond girl behind the reception desk, who just looked blank and the only thing she could answer was to phone the help desk.
If you have a campground and you state that drop-ins are welcome, let people feel welcome and if you have front desk staff, train them to be courteous and welcoming.
The campground is in a beautiful spot, there's a very nice beach where there are no dogs allowed but the beach is full of dog poo, and not just today's, so please enforce your rules and keep it clean. - henny04

This is the second time we have stayed here and if anything this stay was better than the first. Friendly staff, great sites, close to all amenities but far enough to be peaceful. Situated on a nice small lake for the fishermen and boaters and lots of places for the kids to play, even a nice beach. If there is space we will always stay here when visiting Edmonton. - ashtree

CG is protected 24/7 by gate. Roads are paved and wide. Sites are gravel, spacious and level. Travel time to Edmonton is about 40 minutes. - Rd yacht

Park is very clean and well maintained. Easy access from major highway even for bigger rigs. Short drive to West Edmonton Mall and major attractions in and around Edmonton. Nice dog run, kept very clean. Several off leash areas nearby. Managers are very helpful and friendly.
Very popular, so book in advance. - David Swanson

Very new, clean and well kept park. The management and people we met were all very friendly. We attended a bonfire type party on the first night we arrived which was quite nice. This park is gated and you have a security code to come and go. Even though the weather was cool and wet, we enjoyed our stop at Camp'n Class RV Park and would recommend for anyone. - North Star

Showers and bathhouse clean but needed updating. Mainly long term tenants (appeared to be construction workers). Very quiet. WiFi spotty. Good for one night stop. We would stay there again. - frankltd

Tried to set up our coach in site 150. Was sloped to front beyond auto level system tolerance. Was then moved to 159, better, but too soft for coach jacks, sank 4 inches. When we checked out, my wife tripped at entrance to office and scarped leg and knee, bruised arm and wrists. I asked office for first aid kit to no avail. They stood around looking at us like we were from Mars. There was no offer to call ambulance or offer any medical attention. They claim to be a 5 star resort....far from it. The place is owned by 4 partners who don't know anything about customer service including how to make a proper site for Big Rigs. Also, be careful when pulling into sites, the power and water and sewer services are incorrectly installed 1/3 into the gravel pad where you are supposed to park you unit. Amateurs, not worth the $54 CDN we paid per night. I asked if they plan on putting in concrete pads, you guessed it, a big NO. They have been open for 4 years, you would think they would have learned something. I would not stay here again! - BigBear

The park was very nice. It is newer, and very well cared for. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The only downside was the WiFi was non-existent for the three days we were there. The excuses were typical of most parks:
1. We've been having problems with it, and someone is coming to look at it tomorrow.
2. I just work here, and don't have the code to reset it.
3. Try it again in an hour or so. It might be up by then. (Of course, it never was.)
It never did work. I don't think most parks with poor WiFi realize how much future business they lose by advertising it, and then not telling you it's not working until you inquire if it's working or not, after you're set up. My wife and I keep a list of parks with good WiFi, and it is not very long. Those are the parks that get our repeat business. Although Diamond Grove is a very nice campground, we will not be back because of the poor to non-existent WiFi. When on the road, it's how we RV'rs keep in contact with friends, family, business, and finance. - Hiflyer

Overall, pretty good experience. After check in, we were driven to our site, adequate size for a back in, but a little on the narrow side. I don't recall when I made the reservation if I asked for a specific site, I feel if you don't get the vote when you reserve, you should get a vote when you check in off what's available, but not the case here. Also, one other pet peeve, if your wifi isn't working, you should state that up front, not wait until asked about it. And if the whole system is down, there should be some discount afforded. Suffice to say, we weren't notified their system was down until my wife asked about it, and we weren't offered any additional refund. In fact, in their nice check in guide, which is well done, it stated that if any of their services they advertise are not working, it's not their fault, no refunds will be given, and if you want to go elsewhere, they're still going to charge you since you're inside the cancellation window. Disappointed.
That said, this is a decent park, lots of spaces, but many are close to on top of each other. The bathrooms and other facilities were great. They have had a lot of the Fort McMurray folks in their park the last few weeks and it was good to see they were doing some things to help those folks. On the day we arrived, they were doing a free chili cookout - they also offered free laundry soap for them. I think there were a few other things, that was good to see.
The showers were pay for use, which we find a bit odd coming from the states, but when in Rome! We did not use them.
The absolute best thing about this park is it is adjacent to a city dog off leash dog park. This place is great, especially if you have a high energy dog, it's several acres with a walking track for the humans. The only drawback here is the mosquitos.
All in all, decent location, good service, clean facilities, laundry a little pricey. As to whether we'd stay here again, maybe if services advertised are available. - Shamrock Express

Stayed here overnight. They put us on the upper end of campground with the other pull thrus. Totalof 375 spaces in campground. Probably 95% full due to the families evacuating from Fort MacMurray fire. Space was level and dry. Elec and water worked as they were supposed to. Difficult to find it from south. Be patient. Once in the campground, difficult to find your way out. Central dumpster is a long way from where we were camped at for the night. Did not use the bathroom facility. Easy access to main highway out of town. Would stay here again. - Mark and Evelyn

We arrived late in the afternoon and were given a back-in site close to the main office, which houses a fitness facility, laundry, pay showers, and toilets. The bathroom looked clean. All utilities worked well. Sites are short and relatively small but we have been in RV parks where they are even smaller. There are a lot of trailers staying here. RV service is on the road driving in. Some families staying here are from the Fort McMurray area. One little boy commented to my husband that "his house has burned down." - Mother of 3 boys

Park is hard to get to, due to location at intersection of two highways with limited access, and bad map in Woodall's. They do have good signs once you are within about a mile of the park. Huge place with RVs crammed in, but not many choices in Edmonton. Lots of in/out traffic early and late, which we heard because our site was close to the entrance. Price was good for the hookups. - garlina

This RV park is in desperate need of an up grade. There were huge pot holes in the roadways. The bathrooms just need help and a lot of it. Great location as it is just on the edge of the city. - travelbugged

We choose to stay here because of its close proximity to the city of Edmonton. That was the only pro. The sites were short and square to the road, which made backing in difficult. Once in, there was not room to leave the tow vehicle in front without unhooking and parking sideways. Even at that, we had to park partially on the grass. A lot of the sites (including ours) were not level, so extra blocking was needed under the wheels. The washrooms/shower houses were deplorable and in dire need of upgrading. The toilet stalls were shoddily built, with a rail above the doors that I hit my head on almost every time. Internet was only available in the main building. Rules are strictly enforced. There was no flexibility on late checkout times, even though the park was not that full. Recommendation: Only stay here as a last resort. - powerstroker58

After camping here numerous times over the summer of 2011 for work purposes we tolerated the dirty park, unfriendly staff and noisy area due to trucks on the nearby highway, our main reason for returning was due to the convenience of shopping and work. WiFi is an issue here and we were not able to get access it over the duration of our numerous trips. We always abide by the rules of the park which are very, very strictly enforced. The prompting to write this review came with our last visit. We notified the park that we would not be able to leave at the appointed check-out time (11am)and offered to pay for an extra day due to the extra 2 hours we were delayed in leaving. We were told that it was not a problem however when we were hooking up our trailer to leave at 1pm another staff member came by and reminded us that we needed to pay due to our delayed departure. We told her we had offered and she left minutes later another staff member came by with our Visa swiped and used and a paper for us to sign thereby billing us the extra night as we were pulling out. Sorry Shakers Acres but our loyalty is no more and we will never return. Good luck in the future and I hope you treat your future loyal patrons with more respect and integrity. - John1221

Immaculate campground. Lots of walking and cycling trails but not much else to do. Very much "city camping". - Cathyhew
Aug 2015 - $50.00
Clean, organized and well managed. Lots of long term campers in high-end motorhomes / rigs. Good location for Saint Albert but perhaps a little expensive at $50/night.
Wifi absolutely rubbish, full signal but wouldn't load any websites - management are aware and are working on a solution (apparently).
Take a 50A adapter or rent one from the site management at $6/night.
Suspect our pitch was used solely for short-termers as looked like it needed a bit of a spruce up but did the job and was pretty level none-the-less. - Pete10K
Jul 2015 - $45.00
One of the 5 best campgrounds we've ever stayed at. Service is like Concierge Service at a Monaco Hotel... Park has lots of full-timers driving massive coaches, fifth wheels and Class A. Makes for a very nice campground. They do accept smaller units without a problem. Manager lives on site and is helpful, and then some.
Facilities are extremely clean, all connections are state of the art.
Manager extremely knowledgeable of attractions, and is very friendly.
This campground sets the bar very high... - Merveilleuse

The road leading to the park goes through a golf course fairway, so I was half expecting a golf ball to whack the side of our RV. Thankfully, that didn't happen. Nice location down near the North Saskatchewan River. Registration was fast as we had a reservation. Office staff moved us to a bigger site as the park wasn't full. Our site turned out to be an end one with plenty of space on the side of our entrance door. However, the slideout on the other side would have encroached on the adjacent site. Amenities included a picnic table and fire ring. Hookups were located at the rear corner and they all worked fine. No cable TV and only managed one channel of OTA TV (due to our location below the surrounding terrain), so satellite might be a challenge as well. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. This place is family oriented, so you can expect a certain amount of noise from all the kids playing around. There is a boat ramp for access to the river. We would stay here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

We have stayed here a couple times and it's always a pleasure. Some of the sites are a little close together and if your neighbours have a campfire, your RV gets smoke in it, but we only had this problem once. Most of the sites are spacious and close to amenities, nice size parks and fields. Beautiful and park-like grounds. Super friendly staff! Always a joy! - Manda

Beautiful stopover on the Saskatchewan River and outskirts of Edmonton AB. There are a lot of seasonal campers but they were friendly and not too junky. Our site was a long back in but it wasn't very level. They have a variety of sites in the park from a few very long pull-throughs to grassy back-ins. Ample open grass space for kids to play and multiple playgrounds. Satellite access is iffy with the trees as most sites are shaded. Rogers cell phone coverage was weak. Park Wi-Fi only worked if I was close to the office. - Danno

Nice by the beach...lots of people using facilities.....should have been cleaned more regularly for the crowds.
Staff was friendly and helpful. - Gripption
May 2014 - $18.00
Rate is Passport America. The park is clean and quiet with nice pull-through sites. It is a little far from Edmonton for regular daily trips. - Tranquilty1
Jul 2012 - $19.00
Decent for an overnight stop. Roads were very muddy due to recent rains in the area. Site was soggy and not pleasant to sit outside at. We stayed here with the Passport rate of $19 per night so was fine for overnight. - Trixie47

Great Provincial Park. Large park, spacious sites, all wooded in the Aspen Loop. Quiet at night. Electric very good, no problems. Potholes need serious attention. Check-in time was too lengthy, but would stay again. Stayed 2 nights. - Nevada Nick
Jun 2015 - $32.00
Some spots can be a little tricky to get into. For the most part they are fairly level. They have tables and fire pits and you have a decent amount of space between so nobody is lighting your trailer on from the sparks. They do have first-come first-serve sites. On long weekends this place is FULL and there are kids everywhere. So during the day it is loud. But at night everyone was respectful. Parks does patrols. All the staff is very friendly. - Full-time Canadian RVer

Great provincial park, I must say were very pleasantly surprised. Since it was the first weekend in May, the park was pretty empty, but later in the summer it must be very busy. Lots of shady sites, and great walks. Nice beach and boat launch, friendly staff. - Jayco_ClassC
