Excellent view of A canyon driving in. Road down to camping area very steep. Was a gravel road. Do not recommend driving down when road is wet. Had boat launch in camping area. Walking travels not clearly outlined some deep shrubbery areas along trails.

This is one of Alberta's best kept provincial park secrets! Why? Because it really doesn't look like a park. Yes, there are toilets and drinking water and picnic tables and fire pits and a couple of parking lots and a canoe launch (Red Deer River),...More

The landscape is unique with rich wildlife and plants, worth a visit for sure. Make sure good hiking shoes and gaiter are on because of the mudding condition all around.

Lovely spot off the beaten path for a picnic or a hike. Beautiful landscapes. Can get hot so dress in layers. No amenities except for toilets.

We drove approx. 190km north of Calgary. Nice day's outing. Enjoyed the freedom of an undeveloped site, hiking is just following wild life trails, or no trails at all. Very few visitors, "have it for yourself" feel. This is an ecological niche, First Nation Heritage...More

It is pavement up to the park entrance and then gravel. If you come from the North, you will be range roads all the way (all small gravel roads). Worth the trek though!

The area is quite remote and I can only remember lots off trails, waterproof hiking boot is must have. Hiking pole will be a great help, no scramble involve.
