If you enjoy camping in a field with 300 other people or are afraid of bear encounters, this is the place for you. The campground is well run, the bathrooms and showers are clean. The toilets in the bathrooms are real toilets that actually flush.😎 We live in a farm where our closest neighbor's are 3/4 of a mile away....

This is a great camping spot 12 minutes form the town of Waterton. Very reasonable rates, with full service sites. It is a great spot and my kids loved the stocked fishing pond. We had another family member join us short notice and they were very accommodating I putting them in the overflow area.

This is a great location to stay if you plan to visit Waterton Lakes National Park. While it is basic field camping, we enjoyed the mountain views surrounding us. Our campsite was full service and a very accessible pull thru. Laundry facilities were clean. WiFi was not the best but the owner indicated that she had placed a service call....

My SO and I decided to go camping near a national park and found this place. Location is excellent! Just 2 -3 min drive from the parks front gate and in a beautiful area. We were tenting and were placed up near the ponds. The area was very nice, mostly secluded but still had a good view. Table and fire...

Unfortunately, we cannot recommend this campsite. It has huge potential bat alas falls short. We stayed here on the the last night of a 2 week holiday (I am actually writing this at just before mid-night). The campsite is in a wonderful location just outside of Waterton National Park and the views of the mountains are fabulous. Unfortunately though, not...

The campground is only about a 5 minute drive outside of Waterton National Park. Our family of 4 (2 adults 2 kids 2/8) stayed over the August long weekend 2016. We were given the spot right beside the park which we had requested and it was great because we could keep an eye on our kids right from our trailer...

If going to the National Park, this is a good option. Roads are a little rough, everything is dirt and gravel, but the park is nice. No TV access without a satellite. WiFi is weak. Campground is about 3 miles from the National Park, and about 15 miles from the US border.

Great little spot; washrooms and showers clean and well maintained. Couldn't ask for a more beautiful view...... A lot of activities, programs, splash pad for little ones. Mule deer walk everywhere, not bothersome....many ahhhh moments

I reserved a campsite and when we checked in I told a lady that we had to add an additional person to our site then she got mad because I didn't call and informed them so I explained that I didn't know because it was not written in their rules and regulation, all I know was 4 adults and 6...

Definitely loved everything about this campground (top 5 campgrounds I've stayed at)! The owners were more than accommodating: provided us with free tape for our ripped tent, information about the park and the surrounding area, and were just great to talk and joke with! The campsite (112) was excellent. It was private, and had nice shaded, and sunny areas. Nice...
