Campgrounds & Parks

Whether you want to walk where the dinosaurs did, follow the wagon trail of the first pioneers, let the wind carry you across a lake, or play a round of golf on one of the area courses, the County of Grande Prairie is a place to unwind, relax and maybe learn something new.

In addition to dinosaur digs, badlands topography, heritage villages, windsurfing, bird watching and geo-caching, the County operates eight parks and campground facilities. Every campground has a golf course within a 20-minute drive.

Five of the County's campgrounds have caretakers who attend to their customers to provide the following services: complimentary firewood; daily site supervision and assistance; individual campsite visitation; and management of activity.

Beginning November 5, 2016, the County invites you to get out and active in the day-use areas in our parks and campgrounds this winter.  Picnic tables, fire pits and firewood is provided for your outing.  Day-use hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays, please note winter use hours end May 14, 2017.
