Year Round Camping

Crimson Lake Provincial Park offers year-round camping just 14km west of Rocky Mountain House. During the summer, enjoy all the amenities the park has to offer, including a boat launch, showers, campground store, and large beach. There is winter camping at a reduced rate for powered camping sites with access to ice fishing, a maintained skating rink, and groomed and packed trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking.  

Interpretive programs run year-round, with a focus on seasonal education and recreation. Each winter, the campground store is open for Snowy Saturdays, with snowshoe rentals as well as firewood and food sales. Experienced Parks staff are on site during these events to provide information and guidance for inexperienced snowshoers. Crimson Lake Winterfest takes place Family Day weekend, which is a free event with many winter activities that celebrate the community around Rocky Mountain House.

Camping Notes


There are no first-come, first-served sites at this campground this year in order to reduce cash handling to align with Alberta's health guidelines due to COVID-19.

  • During May and June 2019, just east of camping loops E & F, there will be construction to complete three mini group use areas that will accommodate smaller groups wishing to camp together.  Visitors are advised to stay out of the closure and construction areas for their own safety, and expect the presence of construction equipment and increased noise.  It is anticipated these sites will be available in early July.
  • WINTER: Winterized sites in Loop A; 18,19,20,21,23,24,25,30,31,32 and 33.  These campsites have power but there is no water service in the off-season. Showers are not available and no firewood is provided.  Camping is first come-first served during the extended season.

Two wheelchair-accessible campsites adjacent to shower building (C11, C12)
