Alberta’s National Parks – Your Winter Camping Destination

A Breakdown of Three Year-Round Campsites in Alberta

2017 has been an exciting year for Canadians, especially Canadian campers. With the government stepping up and offering free access to all of the Country’s national parks in honor of this great nation’s 150th birthday, we’ve had the opportunity to experience our own backyard like we’ve never seen it before. We’ve been able to teach our children to explore. We’ve allowed a natural curiosity and awe for this beautiful country to grow within them. The blanket of snow outside our windows doesn’t mean that we have to stop exploring. In fact, we still have two months left to enjoy the beauty of this country free of charge – let’s take advantage of them!

Camping With Your Kids

Enjoy the Outdoors With Your Family

Kids campingI have 6 and 8 year old girls and they love camping, especially if we bring our iPad and other electronic devices for the trip……….hmmmmm.
I remember when I was young and when we went camping, it was an opportunity to do things we weren’t able to do at home (or for some reason chose not to).

When you go camping, you are able to talk and hike and talk and fish and talk and swim and talk and boat…you see where I am going! There is no RUSH when you are camping, so whether it’s throwing a frisbee or having a meal, you are able to slow it down and enjoy your time together.
