Camping Summer Outdoor Activities

Listen to the birdsong and the gurgling of a nearby stream as you awaken from a restful sleep in the great outdoors. Poke your sleepy head out and breathe in the fresh scent of the forest. There’s something else on the breeze – pancakes, bacon, coffee and campfire. Camping is a quintessential Canadian tradition. You can camp almost anywhere in Alberta, from tenting in the backcountry to full-service campsites. Stay in a teepee or a trapper’s tent or try comfort camping, where everything is ready for you on arrival. Or hit the road in a recreational vehicle – bring your own or rent one here.
