Pipestone Creek Campground

Pipestone Creek Park

A dramatic drive down the river valley where Pipestone Creek meets the Wapiti River lies the hidden valley of Pipestone Creek Park. Located along the Wapiti River, near one of the richest areas for dinosaur fossils in western Canada, and the largest site in the world for Pachyrhinosaurus fossils.

Thanks to this ultra-rich fossil bone-bed, we are proud to be the home of the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur museum.

The park is located just 16 kilometres south of Wembley. Head west on Hwy #43, then south through the Town of Wembley, and follow signs to the park.
