Enjoy a game of Crokicurl at the Hythe Municipal Campground Day-Use Area. The game of Crokicurl combines the classic Canadian pastime of Curling with the entertaining board game Crokinole. It can be played 1-on-1 or as a match between two teams. 

How to play a game

  • Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday 12 p.m. - 4 p.m. 
  • Wednesday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Once you are at the Crokicurl ice surface:

  • Shovels are available in the shed to clear any fresh snow from the rink.
  • Return stones to the shed after use, this will preserve them as well as protect the ice surface from damage.
