Rainbow Valley Campground
Escape to the campground in the middle of the City: Rainbow Valley Campground in Edmonton. Since the mid-sixties, Rainbow Valley Campground has been wrapped around the Whitemud Creek at the south end of Whitemud Park. It is part of the larger River Valley Park system in Edmonton and the only campground within City limits. You can walk for 45 minutes in either direction and occasionally see signs of city life along the natural trails that follow the meandering creek. There are over 70 unique sites, half with power, the other half have without services (tenting) and all in the midst of mature pine, elm and poplar trees. Check-in and other amenities such as firewood and refreshments are available at the Rainbow Valley Chalet building. There are also laundry facilities, free showers, a playground, outdoor cookhouses, and a Sani-dump station.
