Notice: Located on the shores of Buffalo Lake, Rochon Sands Provincial Park is a manicured landscape that provides camping facilities and beach access; from the comfort of their campsites, park visitors can watch the graceful flight of geese on their late summer migration south; in the campground, undergrowth provides protection from wind while large trees create a cool, shady picnic area. Rochon Sands Provincial Park is operated by the Summer Village of Rochon Sands under a lease agreement with the Province of Alberta. This agreement provides a degree of flexibility in how the village operates the campground and enables them to broaden the services they provide to campground visitors. Facebook and Twitter are the recommended venues to obtain specific information about services provided by the village.
