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 geocaching, the County operates eight parks and campground facilities. Every campground has a golf course within a 20-minute drive.
Four of the County's campgrounds have resident Park Hosts who attend to their customers to provide the following services: complimentary firewood; daily site supervision and assistance; campsite visitation; and management of activity. Please note that all County campgrounds are family orientated environments and campground quiet hours are enforced to ensure that everyone enjoys a positive experience.
