This equestrian campground is found in Dawson Provincial Recreation Area, 51 km east of Canmore on Hwy. 1, 7 km south on Hwy. 40, 11 km east on Hwy. 68 and 2 km south on Powderface Trail. There are several drive-up sites suitable for RVs, as well as some walk-in tenting sites. There are hitching rails, loading ramps and access to trails for horseback riding as well as for hiking and mountain biking. Equestrian campgrounds are intended for campers bringing a horse. Please only book at an equestrian campground if you are using it for equestrian purposes as there are only a few campgrounds available to these users.
