We spent four days at Dinosaur Provincial Park and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, the great walks, and a tour into the non-public area of the preserve. Would definitely stay here again.

“Beautiful Provincial Park surrounded by Dinosaur discovery areas in Alberta Badlands.”

Reviewed Nov 03, 2016

Overall Rating

This Alberta provincial park, located on the Red Deer River in the Alberta Badlands, is the location where dinosaur fossils were first discovered, leading to the creation of the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, AB. The campground is situated well below the prairie, and is surrounded by walking trails through the wind and water-worn landscape.

The 126 comfortably large well-spaced campsites offer different levels of service. Ours had electricity only, while others in another section ion the park offered water and electricity. The park offers 'comfort camping' sites as well, allowing those without an RV or tent to experience the park in a glamorous tent. There is a dumpsite at the exit, and a store & restaurant at the campground entrance including washrooms with showers. There are privies in the campground itself, for those not self-contained.

The interpretation centre hosts amazing displays about the fossil discoveries in the park, and there are a number of self-guided walks showcasing the discoveries as well as the Badlands ecosystem. If you have the opportunity, take the guided tour, which takes you behind the gate into the more interesting parts of the fossil beds.

There is no cellular service in the park, as it is so far below the prairie, but Alberta parks provided free wi-fi, and cellular service is available as soon as you climb out of the river valley.
