Canadian Badlands Canadian Badlands

This is the home where the dinosaurs roamed. It’s still epic. Get ready to explore some remarkable rock formations and fossil beds. It’s enough to transport you to another time. Definitely take your photo with a towering hoodoo in a prehistoric glacial valley on horseback. ● Get lost: Canadian Badlands hiking is otherworldly. Seriously. Grab a map, then get yourself to Horseshoe Canyon. You’ve never seen anything like this. ● Dinosaurs: As if you could visit the Badlands without a trip to the cretaceous period. In addition to the Royal Tyrell Museum, try the Trail of the Fossil Hunters, an easy walk to the site of a 1913 fossil dig.

Reviews

Indian Hill is a fun, tree-lined 9-hole golf course hiding East and South of Coaldale, Alberta. Operated by a non-profit society for more than 30 years, the clubhouse features a full service dining room and excellent pro shop. Reasonable rental and green fees keep the course busy through the summer so reservations are recommended.  Come out for a round, or stay for the night at the campground, but don't miss this best kept secret of southern Alberta.
