Camping in Alberta 2010

My family and I have been camping in and around Alberta for the last 10 years. We have a few favorite spots (ex:Beaver Flats in Kananaskis) and are always looking to try a new site.

Last year’s Boler has been replaced with the Wanderer. Now that the my twins are turning 6 we wanted the extra space. The larger RV means our choice of camping spots is a little bit more limited but there are still lots of choices.

This year the ‘rush’ to find a camping spot has been made a little easier with the help of an online reservation system. Alberta Park’s website allows you to browse available campsites and pick a spot according to the services you need (power, water, sewer).

Having a reservation takes the guess-work out of whether or not you will find a spot on a busy Friday night.

Another favorite site for camping reservations in and around Banff National Park is Mount Kidd. If you can snag a reservation here you won’t be disappointed. Sitting in the hot tubs staring up the side of a beautiful mountain will be a memory you and your family never forget.
