  • Will forever remain imprinted on camping in this park. It is a rare and unique charm. A beautiful souvenir of Canada. The mountains with their movements take various forms. Camping very equipped, from the showers to the laundry area. In the Bar of the camp there is also WiFi. There are various paths to take, is ideal for those with children and wants catapultarli in the age of the dinosaurs. Beautiful, I would love to go back again in a future

  • We have travelled around the world and lived in some very interesting places. However, this past summer we decided to stay in Alberta and avail ourselves of the places that we had not previously. Actu...  more »
  • Of course, these badlands of Alberta are less spectacular than those of the Dakota or New Mexico, but after three weeks in the Rockies, the scenery is total. The Park is infrequent, the small museum at the home is worth a visit (the symbolic entrance ticket price). The paths in the part open to the public are very easy. At the entrance to the Park we can stop the car and enjoy a lovely panorama of the badlands.

  • So much to say about this place! The scenery is absolutely breathtaking- such a shocking transition from the fertile farmland around Brooks. Dinosaur park is such a great place to camp. The atmosphere is kind of exotic and relaxing, and hiking around the badlands is tough to beat. We did one of the bus tours where you get to poke around and find fragments of dinosaur bones. Well worth the time and price- our kids loved it (and so did we for that matter). Definitely at the top of our list!
  • Great, very nice and with the drive. Way better than drumheller and much larger
  • Great area to go camping! The campground itself is maintained very well. Staff are friendly. Interpreters are awesome. The area is almost magical. So much great hiking and places to see here.
  • I visited this on Monday, I have to say what a stunning place, mind blowing, I walked all over the park and fished the river then used the camping facilities in the night. I would have given this 5 stars however I felt for the size of the place, the history surrounding it and what has been found and continues to be found, the visitor centre lacked a certain spark. it is one floor, only had a handful of skeletons. for something so great this should be a multi million pound building with hundreds of skeletons and masses of interactive areas. amazing day out just feel some things could be improved, though highly recommended
  • Really nice park in Badlands
