Camping Summer Outdoor Activities

Camping is quintessentially Albertan. Everything (coffee, bacon, beer, bad ghost stories) is way better around a campfire. • Your call: Pick your favourite vista (mountains, foothills, Badlands, forest) and there’s a campground or RV park there for you. • Come unprepared: No tent? No problem. Equipped camping in national parks comes with all the basics. Comfort camping, or glamping, (found around the province) is like a hotel room in the great outdoors, complete with heaters and real beds. • So Alberta: Book a guided multi-day canoe and horseback camping trip. You’ll follow the same routes once travelled by whiskey traders and the police who chased them.
