  • A nice little place away from Sylvan Lake proper. Not as busy as the main area so much better for relaxation.

  • I have camped all over North American, State, National, Provincial camp site. This site is magnificent. Clean, well maintained, blessedly quiet and reasonable prices for ice, wood etc. I can't wait to come back...
  • Great campsite! LOTS of shaded, private sites. Good playgrounds and free showers. Too bad the shoreline wasn't a little larger--it can be reached by walking down a steep hill.
  • This campground is one of our favourites to visit. The sites are great size and covered with trees for shade. Nice walking / biking trails. Clean washrooms & shower would highly recommend visiting this campground.
  • It’s a nice campground but not a good place for families or if you’d like to sleep before 3am. The site beside us was blasting a movie on a projector screen and their music for multiple nights - there was no action from the management company or conservation officers even after we asked the campers and called the office. Not much point in having rules for quiet hours if there’s no one there to enforce them. The conservation officer basically told us it was a loud campsite and too bad when we did finally talk to them.
  • I just love this place. If you live in Sylvan Lake and don't visit this provincial park you are truly missing out on the beauty this town has to offer. It's not just a camp ground! There's parking! Secret lake access by the bridge for a dog swim. See if you can spot a garter Snake. Keep doggos on leash while walking on trails because of the cliffs.
