Camping Summer Outdoor Activities

Listen to the birdsong and the gurgling of a nearby stream as you awaken from a restful sleep in the great outdoors. Poke your sleepy head out and breathe in the fresh scent of the forest. There’s something else on the breeze – pancakes, bacon, coffee and campfire. Camping is a quintessential Canadian tradition. You can camp almost anywhere in Alberta, from tenting in the backcountry to full-service campsites. Stay in a teepee or a trapper’s tent or try comfort camping, where everything is ready for you on arrival. Or hit the road in a recreational vehicle – bring your own or rent one here.

Medicine Lodge Fall Roundup

Medicine Lodge, Alberta
2017-09-08 to 2017-09-10 MST

The Medicine Lodge Fall Roundup is excited to bring family-friendly western entertainment to the Hinton/Edson area for a weekend every September! The weekend kicks off with a short rodeo performance on Friday, September 8th at 4:00 p.m. Camping is encouraged and we invite all spectators to join us for the entire weekend. The full rodeo action takes place on Saturday, September 9th at 2:00 p.m. The best cowboys, cowgirls and rodeo stock in the country will make a final push to qualify (or solidify their positions) for the Canadian Finals Rodeo that takes place at the end of the year. The rodeo is followed by a pig roast dinner and live music around a bonfire where spectators and cowboys alike can relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Sunday is Family Funday in Medicine Lodge! Our spectators and fans are what makes our rodeo so fantastic, and we want to include them in our weekend. Family-friendly events like sheep riding, miniature pony racing and lawnmower racing will happen on Sunday at 12:00 p.m. as a lighthearted way to finish off the weekend. The rodeo grounds offers a concession all weekend long and a dance hall for those wanting to kick up their heels a bit on Saturday night. Take a look through our gift shop for the opportunity to purchase rodeo related items & attire and have a visit with any of our committee members. Free firewood is provided to all campers, and there is running water, washroom facilities and potable water available onsite. The beautiful McLeod River is only a short walk from the grounds and offers peace and tranquility for those wanting to slow things down a little. We look forward to this event and are very excited to share it with new and returning spectators every year! We'll see you in September!
