Alberta Parks is introducing a pilot project to reduce noise and improve camper experiences in Provincial Parks and Provincial Recreation Areas. Excessive noise can negatively affect campers, hindering their ability to connect with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. To help minimize these impacts, we are piloting new rules for fuel generators (generators running on gas, diesel, or propane) at a few select campgrounds across the province this summer. These new rules, effective June 1, 2022, will reduce noise overall while continuing to provide some opportunities for fuel generator usage in participating campgrounds, ensuring that all campers can enjoy their stay in Alberta’s parks.
Question: Why is Alberta Parks instituting rules on generator use through this pilot?
Question: What kinds of generators are permitted in the participating campgrounds?
Question: When and where can I use my generator?
