Camping Notes

  • Campground is by reservation only during summer (May-Sept)
  • Select sites turn into First Come, First Serve for the winter after September long weekend

Showers are no longer coin operated - a small fee increase/ campsite was added for ease of use and cost efficiency for users.


Firewood is sold onsite for $8/bag, as well as at the Switzer Park Visitor Centre during peak season (hours vary).


Fee $5.00 for registered campers; $10.00 other users.

  • Due to our mountainous location and later thaw season, we must advise that our water system may not be operational for opening day, and the ensuing May Long weekend. This possible delay in water service is entirely dependent upon weather conditions.
  • Should a delay in water services occur, a no water service advisory will be posted and any applicable fees paid will be reimbursed.
  • For further information if this occurs, please contact the Gregg Lake Campground Booth at 780-865-5152. 
  • During fall and winter, water is only available from a hand pump.  Although Alberta Parks strives to maintain water quality, we recommend that you bring your own drinking water.

Wheelchair-accessible washrooms.
