Camping Notes


This is an unserviced campground. Please remember to bring your own firewood to enjoy your stay.  Collection of deadfall for firewood is prohibited.


Recent changes to the recreation area regulation under the Public Health Act have affected provision of drinking water in this campground – we cannot absolutely guarantee that water from hand pumps is free of pathogens because of the risk of ground water contamination. As a result, Alberta Parks recommends that you bring your own drinking water.
