Here is another great campground we have visited. Last summer we went camping at Crimson Lake over by Rocky Mountain House. This campground was amazing.
Nestled in the foothills just west of Rocky Mountain House is this little gem. The area is beautiful. Lots of trees, paths and water.
The campsites have lots of room. Well maintained which makes it easy to set up the trailer. The campground as a whole is kept pristine. The Alberta Parks staff are always buzzing around, taking excellent care of the campground.
Speaking of the Alberta Parks staff, I will say they go above and beyond. We had a water issue in the trailer. My wife noticed right after set up that our water was coming out black. So I ended up finding a staff member at the pump house and asked if they were having issues. She was in the middle of her water tests and asked for a sample from our trailer.
Once she finished her rounds, she came back and showed me the parks water compared to ours. It was just our trailer! Turns out that something was at the top of our fresh water tank, so once filled our system became contaminated. This was also the first time we filled it right to the top.
She really went above and beyond for us. It would have been very easy to just say ours is fine but she took the time to help. Thank you for that again by the way.
Now if you end up camping at Crimson Lake, take advantage of the trails. They are huge with lots to see and do.
We found this great nature park right in the middle of the trails. Slides, rocks and log structures to play on. Really gives the nature adventure feel.
Now, as any parent knows you can’t camp with kids without hitting up a beach. It really becomes the highlight for them. Well Crimson Lakes has one of the best beaches I have ever seen!
It seems like it goes on for miles! Always groomed each morning. The water is flagged off for swimming. Not too deep and very nice for swimming. The sand is great for playing and the size of the beach area allows for lots of personal space.
There is also a great dock area for launching boats or just sitting down, staring out onto the lake.
Days where you want a break from the water, there is great playgrounds all around. Let your kids climb and slide away the day.
Even bring out badminton rackets or a volleyball and hit up the sand court!
There is so much to see and do here. Great campground for family’s. One that we will definitely be going back too.
Where is Crimson Lake?
