Camping Notes

  • Stay on official trails and viewing platforms. Do not go beyond barriers.
  • Areas around water and waterfalls are very slippery and you can fall. Keep a safe distance from these areas and keep children within arm’s reach.
  • Flowing mountain waters are swift, cold and powerful. Hypothermia can happen fast.
  • Remote mountain areas often have poor or no cell phone service. Emergency responses can be delayed due to distance from communities.
  • Obey all signs – they’re for your safety.

Recent changes to the recreation area regulation under the Public Health Act have affected provision of drinking water in this campground – we cannot absolutely guarantee that water from hand pumps is free of pathogens because of the risk of ground water contamination. As a result, Alberta Parks recommends that you bring your own drinking water.
