Whitehorse Wildland Provincial Park

Alberta Parks

Random Backcountry Camping

Information: 780-865-2154

Due to the remote nature of these campgrounds, cleaning and sanitizing of shared surfaces is infrequent and users should be ready to sanitize high-touch surfaces upon their arrival. Be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Note that cleaning supplies may be wildlife attractants, and should be stored in your food locker and away from your tent.

This small backcountry campground is located in Whitehorse Wildland Provincial Park, which is about 6 km southwest of Cadomin on a gravel access road. There are marked tenting pads and hitching rails for equestrian users.
