This pretty campground is found in Bow Valley Provincial Park, about 5 km east of Canmore on Hwy. 1. Upgrades in spring 2017 added 20 campsites.  The majority of the campsites are now serviced with power.  Additional upgrades are coming in spring 2018, with the addition of a comfort station, a few walk-in tenting sites and water becoming available at the power serviced sites.  The campground is next to the Bow River, offering pleasant views. There are many activities available in this area, including hiking, biking, fishing, and paddling.
