Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation (TPR) maintains Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca. The purpose of this web-enabled application is to provide centralized campground reservation and registration services to the public to facilitate better enjoyment of Alberta for Albertans.
TPR and its agents are committed to providing our Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca website and Contact Centre visitors with the information and services they are seeking in a manner that respects their privacy.
This page summarizes how the Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca website will be managed in accordance with the rules established in the Alberta Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act.
The Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca website provides individuals with the opportunity to voluntarily provide limited amounts of personal information to create and manage an on-line account and to make campsite reservations.
Whenever personal information is collected, you will be provided with a privacy notification statement. You are encouraged to read the notification carefully prior to submitting your personal information.
To establish an on-line account, you will be asked to provide your first and last name, the country you live in and postal or zip code, if applicable, your email address and a password to secure access to your information on the website.
In order to facilitate registration at the campground booth, you may also provide your vehicle license plate number and information concerning any other campers who may occupy the sites you are reserving. When providing information about other campers please ensure that you have their approval to do so.
If you make your reservation over the telephone, you will be asked to provide your telephone number rather than your email address. TPR has taken every precaution to safeguard the personal information you provide to us and ensure that it is used appropriately.
The information you provide on the system, over the telephone or to campground staff will be used to reserve a campsite, fulfill your service needs and evaluate our parks program.
It is collected by TPR under the authority of section 33(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act and is protected by the privacy provisions of that Act. If you have any questions about the information collection, please ask the person you are speaking to or call 1-866-427-3582 .
