William Watson Lodge Campground is in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, 50 km south of Hwy. 1 on Hwy. 40 and south on Hwy. 742 (Kananaskis Lakes Trail). This small campground is for exclusive use of clients of William Watson Lodge. It is fully wheelchair accessible and each site has water, power and sewer hookups. From here there is close access to the lakes for those hoping to canoe, fish or go boating. There are many hiking, mountain biking and paved trails nearby.
The lodge is now open. The new lodge enhances the overall visitor experience and safety, and brings the facility up to today’s international accessibility standards. The Government of Alberta invested $6 million into the project.
William Watson Lodge provides year-round, barrier-free, wilderness lodging for persons with disabilities, seniors and their families.
