Excessive noise can negatively affect campers, hindering their ability to connect with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. To help minimize these impacts, we’re continuing to pilot rules for fuel generators (running on gas, diesel, or propane) at a few select campgrounds across the province in 2023. Positive feedback was received from campers, with most supporting these changes in our Reserve Alberta Parks survey. This project is continuing with the same sites for the 2023 season. Establishing fuel generator rules at select Alberta Parks’ sites will help reduce noise overall while continuing to provide opportunities for generating power.
