Easy to find, close to city amenities, well setup campground, hedges between sites for the appearance of privacy, clean small but adequate laundry, next door to a family sports center, river walk nearby, mostly pull-thru sites. If you just need a place to leave the camper and go exploring - great location.

This campground is clean and well-kept. I arrived late and they left instructions for me on the office door, and then check-in the next morning. The campground itself is beautiful, clean and well laid out. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the 2-dog limit. This meant that many of my friends who were attending the...

Hi Karen, Thank you for your kind review of Bow RiversEdge. I understand that you attended the dog show that took place this past weekend. There is a reason for the 2 dog limit and we will always stick to this limit. It is not just the dog show that can bring multiple pets and we would be setting a...

We booked this place sight unseen, but were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. The owners take pride in their park, it is well planted, well maintained and each site is pretty private. The bathrooms are very clean and my only criticism would be the two loonies for a five minute shower that was barely above warm water. Their is a...

Hi ZumaDawg, Thanks so much for your kind review of our park. This RV park is owned by the Lions and Rotary Clubs of Cochrane and this park helps them to contribute back into the community each year.

We needed to take our motor home for a shake trip. We choose Bow Rivers Edge because it's close to our home. I was very surprised to find such a nice campground in town. I stayed at many "municipal" campgrounds and they generally slightly above acceptable. Bow Rivers Edge is outstanding. It very clean and the sites are generous in...

If your out touring around in your RV and need a spot to spend a couple of days to recharge your batteries; look no further. Conveniently located between the Rocky Mountains and Calgary, the Bow Rivers Edge is a winner. It's 35k to Calgary's city center; 15k to the Trans Canada and about 60k, give or take, from Canmore making...

We only stayed 2 nights but will be returning in September for a slightly longer stay. The staff at arrival were pleasant and efficient and got us checked in without any difficulty. The campground is located, as the name suggests on the banks of the Bow River, it is a very nice campground with wide, level, gravel and grass sites....

We booked this purely unseen and only based on reviews. It is a really nice park along the Bow River and close enough to Calgary and Banff, depending on your desires. While this park is huge, each site has privacy and shade Sites are level and roomy-no worrying about where to park your vehicle if you're towing. Unlike many of...

Great place to stay a few nights and explore the area. Sites are level, everything is clean, has fire pits and firewood sales, nice playground for kids, amazing off leash dog park along the river that is accessible right from the RV park, close to shopping and restaurants and far away enough from the highways and railways that you don't...
