Prairie Creek Campground

Information: (403) 845-8349 Rocky District Office

If you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful camping experience, head to Prairie Creek Campground. It has 50 unserviced sites, including a number of pull-through sites. The mature forest and ample space between campsites creates privacy for campers.

While there are limited amenities within the campground, it is only a 30 minute drive to Rocky Mountain House. The highway leading to the campground is paved, so you get the peace of a secluded campground without having to travel on dusty backroads.

Many campers like to take advantage of the proximity to off-highway vehicle trails. We encourage visitors to use the campground as their base, but please note that off-loading and/or using OHVs inside the campground is prohibited. They must remain on trailers to travel to the nearby trail system and staging areas.

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.
