Overall Rating

Huge, well spaced sites in a forest thick with healthy 50 ft tall lodge pole pines. Quiet with very little traffic noise and no trains! Easy access and easy to level, at least in our site). Loops A and B have water and electric. Rate is Canadian dollars and includes the reservation fee for Alberta parks. Our credit card was charged US $, according to the current exchange rate. Vault toilets scattered thru loops with a central shower house that also
has flush toilets, mirrors and outlets (for drying your hair after you shower). Showers are token operated. $2 CD for 5 min. Water was hot and pressure was good. Firewood for sale from campground hosts. Lots of hiking nearby: paved paths connect campgrounds in the area (also used for biking), rustic trails all over the area. Both Upper and Lower Kananaskis lakes provide opportunities for hiking as well as various boating activities. I believe one can rent canoes or kayaks from the Bolton creek store about 3 miles down the road. Note Hwy 40 Is closed from December 1 until the middle of June for wildlife migration. My Verizon plan switched to the Canadian carrier but Cell phone service was not consistent.
