Absolutely gorgeous spot! Great hiking and unique hoo doos - they are smaller than the hoo doos in Dinosaur provincial park - which is also gorgeous! Lots of wildlife including rattle snakes. The interpretive centre has really good programs. Our son took part in a program with a live non poisonous snake. the presenter let the children hold the snake...

We had a great stay here. Clean washrooms. There are lots of historical things to see and cool hikes. The playground is a nice size. The showers were hot and clean also. There are powered sites but no water - there is plenty of drinking water accessible though. We saw a lot of wildlife and even a rattle snake! A...

This is an amazing set up. Well worth the money. Great campground all around. Tours from the visitor centre were a great choice for our family. Bring shoes for hiking and playing in the hoodoos as snakes are in the area. No restaurant or cafe in the area so make sure you bring all your food, but cold drinks are...

We recently went for a 3-day weekend, and would easily go again and add another day. The campsites are close enough together to be convenient, and far enough apart that you feel like you have your own space. The kids loved climbing on the hoodoos, plus learned lots at the interpretive center. I would also recommend booking a tour, as...

It was wonderful. Everything was there, all you need to bring is food and fun!! They are very thoughtful, including everything that you need, and something you did not think of too! The space is big, the washroom and shower is very close by. Most important is very clean and you feel safe in the camp ground. Lots of stuffs...

A great place to unwind and reboot life. The landscape is unique and breath taking. Would recommend this place to everyone. While there make sure you pack your running shoes for the Hoodoo Trail and don't forget to check out the interactive center. Visitors should be cautious of snakes in the park along the rocks.

This is a very special place. The unique topography, wildlife, and history make it worthy of a visit. To top it off, the campground is incredibly quiet and peaceful. The facilities - showers, trails, visitor centre, and camp store - are all first-class. The river is cool and delightful to swim or float. The beach area is fantastic for kids...

For those who enjoy camping once in awhile but don't want to invest in a trailer or tent or all the gear, comfort camping is the way to go. Writing On Stone has three lovely, clean, permanent tents for comfort camping - 100% equipped, comfortable and rain proof. The fact that they book up so quickly is a testament to...

A must do camping. main Washrooms:showers were clean and warm water. Loved that they had treated drinking water taps located thru the park. Highly recommend this place just no internet service in campground but...

This camp ground is really a Southern Alberta gem. Summer weekends are quite booked up far in advance, as it is a favourite place for locals to come campling. If you decide to spend a few nights midweek, you can probably get a site with power. (Alberta Parks has a great on-line reservation system so you can see pictures of...
