Fantastic park for camping! Quiet, peaceful and great walking access to trails and the lake. The lake is huge! Bring your boat as you can fish or just enjoy a recreational ride. There is a beach area and a cordoned off area for swimming in the day-use area a short walk from the sites. The staff are very friendly and the park is very clean and well maintained. They offer free firewood each evening from 5pm-9pm! There is a small shop on site that offers soft serve ice cream along with other small food items and a few camping essentials if you need them. We have enjoyed many an evening over the summer at this wonderful park and would highly recommend it! Power sites book up really fast and the park was full throughout the summer.
We love this campground and highly recommend it! They have laundry facilities and a beautiful location atop a hill overlooking Calgary! Peace and quiet in the City! Fantastic location and the customer service was excellent. You will not be disappointed with your stay here!
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.
