In southern Alberta’s Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park, beneath a cottonwood stand in the Milk River Valley, you can camp with all — or at least most — of the comforts of home. The park offers three well-equipped tents on wooden platforms for comfort camping. Outside the tent, you’ll find a private deck with deck furniture and a gas barbecue. Inside, you can sleep in a real bed and make your meals in the kitchen.
Secluded, rustic cabins. Affordable family fun. Drop in for a night or two and take a step back in time staying in rustic camping cabins. Leave the hustle and bustle of everyday living behind. Your hosts Karen and Bob Brinkman offer warm "maritime" hospitality in an authentic western style, as you relax and enjoy quiet solitude in the privacy of your "home away from home". All three cabins are in isolated locations, separate from each other yet still accessible by private vehicle. Four wheel drive is recommended for winter time access but is not absolutely necessary. The unserviced cabins Drifters Camp & Paradise Inn offer the opportunity to step back into time and experience rustic living with candles and oil lamps for lighting. If you are looking for indoor plumbing and electricity you may want to consider the cabin called Earls Place with a full kitchen and wash room with toilet and shower. All the cabins have barbecues, picnic areas, fire pits, and free firewood. Pets are welcome.
