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 closed for renovations. The new lodge will enhance the overall visitor experience and safety, and bring the facility up to today’s international accessibility standards. The lodge will be closed during the two-year construction period. The Government of Alberta is investing $6 million into the project.

William Watson Lodge provides year-round, barrier-free, wilderness lodging for persons with disabilities, seniors and their families. It's situated in beautiful Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, overlooking Lower Kananaskis Lake. The goal of this facility is to connect people of all abilities, all ages and all cultures to recreational opportunities in nature.
