Good campgrounds around/south of Edmonton?

Jump to last reply

We have had an RV for 3 years - we bought it for a big trip to Ontario/Quebec the first year. Other than that trip we have mostly stayed in provincial campgrounds in Alberta (as that's the camping I was raised in, and my hubby is from Ontario).

We have almost 5 weeks of holidays this summer (2 weeks, a week back to work, then 2.5 weeks) but for personal reasons we need to stay within a few hours of Edmonton.

I am looking for some real-life recommendations for campgrounds other than provincial ones within a 2-4 hour drive of Edmonton. We've done Drumheller, Calaway Park, & the Banff route in BC. I am not at all interested in the mountains this year.

We have 5 kids, so I am looking for family friendly (i.e. has a a playground and the operator/host doesn't have a hate on for kids). I'm not worried about showers, pit toilets are fine, and I would LOVE to find somewhere that actually has treed in sites. Full hook ups are not necessary but power is great. We can deal with an RV park if there are some fantastic side appeals to it, or we can handle middle of nowhere, few amenities kind of places.

Any real-life recommendations would be really appreciated - we are getting really sick of the provincial parks!
