“Gorgeous, riverside free camp with excellent cell signal. Very remote section of southeast Alberta”

Overall Rating

This beautiful free camp is located on the Red Deer River. There is an open field area suitable for any size rig, and a spacious treed area accessible to smaller rigs. You can even camp right beside the river if you can weave between the trees to get there.

Pit toilets on site but no water supply.

Paved road is adjacent so there will be road noise when a vehicle goes by but this is a very remote location so there is very little traffic.

There are 3 cell towers just south of the camp at the corner of 555 and 886. I had excellent service on my AT&T plan which usually roams on Rogers. But I am guessing Bell and Telus are good here too based on the 3 towers.

This camp is in the middle of Alberta's Special Area, a super remote part of the province where there are endless open fields and little else. The closest anything is 30 minutes to the hamlet of Jenner where there is a small convenience store with basic groceries, gas and propane. 50 mintues will take you to the town of Oyen where there is a grocery store or also 50 minutes to Acadia Valley where there is a grocery store as well.

The city of Medicine Hat is 1.5 hours away because you have to drive around through Jenner. Brooks is slightly closer and has lots of amenities as well.

This is a beautiful camp but you will want to stock up before you go if you plan to stay there for any length of time. Great spot to get away for awhile and relax or get some work done on the great cell signal.
