  • Daily Tree Watering at Group Camp

    August 18, 2018

    Group camp occupants should be aware that daily watering of newly planted trees will occur twice per day during weekdays at Syncline Group Camps.  Watering uses a pump and some generator noise will occur for several hours.  Alberta Park staff are working to upgrade the Group Camps; we are sorry for the inconvenience.

    Affected Areas
  • Construction Closure - Designated Camping Areas 1 & 2 and Hwy 774 Construction

    August 13, 2018

    Designated Camping Areas 1 & 2 will be closed due to the paving of Highway 774.

    The Highway 774 paving project is within the boundaries of the Castle Provincial Park, from Castle Mountain Resort to the existing paved highway at the Castle River Bridge. 

    • Work has begun and construction traffic has increased on the gravel section of 774
    • Any remaining vehicles and camping units (in DCA 1 & 2) may become inaccessible once paving and other work begins.
    • We are sorry for the inconvenience; all other Designated Camping Areas (3 - 9) are open.
    • Day Users are encouraged to park in official staging areas, rather than along the road.

     Enjoy your stay and feel free to stop by the temporary Visitor Information Centre if you have any questions.
