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 ! 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 where we are located. 3 lakes within 15 min drive for more boating and fishing.
