We are a family-oriented campground, with a playground and basketball court for the younger campers. Fishing, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking are available during the camping season.

We are situated on the Castle River at SW ¼ 27-06-02-W5 Municipal District of Pincher Creek #9, on highway 507, north approximately 3.5 kms from the turn-off at the intersection of highway 774 south and 507 west. Alternately, 13.8 kms south of the intersection of Highway 3 and Highway 507 south. Please watch for signs.

At present we have eighty sites, half of which are for nightly campers with all but three sites now powered. Non-potable water is available. Bundles of firewood are also available for purchase. The majority of sites are limited to one unit per site but there are some available for multiple units on request. Open fires are permitted in the campground proper, unless fire restrictions are in place.

We also have a large overflow area for dry camping for when we are full. No open wood or briquet fires are allowed but propane campfires, stoves and barbecues are permitted. There is no power to this area.
