Spring Creek Equestrian Campground

Information: 403-893-3833

Spring Creek Equestrian Campground is in Cypress Hills Provincial Park, 20 km southeast of Medicine Hat on Hwy. 1, and 40 km south on Hwy. 41. This small campground has corrals and RV-friendly sites surrounded by meadow and open pine forest.  It's a great base camp for equestrian users hoping to explore the park's many kilometers of trails on horseback.

Equestrian campgrounds are intended for campers bringing a horse. Please only book at an equestrian campground if you are using it for equestrian purposes as there are only a few campgrounds available to these users.
