What's great about us...Activities and Outdoor Adventures... 

Enjoy a more secluded wilderness camping experience with 1 mile of private river front access to the the North Saskatchewan River, amidst 200 acres of thick pristine forest. It's like camping and adventures in the mountains without the crowds and long drive. Incredible fishing in 2017! Some campers catching over 50 walleye in a weekend - catch and release. Plus awesome tubing and swimming as the river is very clean and shallow this past year.
