Lions Campground, located in the heart of Red Deer, combines the beauty of a park with the convenience of the city. The Red Deer River provides a striking backdrop to the campground, and campers are welcome to enjoy the expansive trail system that winds its way along the scenic waterway. Lions Campground is just minutes from the wealth of stores, cultural opportunities, and golf courses in Red Deer, so urban opportunities abound for people travelling through the region. Its site amenities include: 126 full and semi-services sites, washrooms, showers, and laundry facilities. Recreation opportunities include playgrounds, horseshoe pits, and an amphitheatre for interpretive programs offered by Kerry Wood Nature Centre. The campground is open yearly from May to September.
