Cattle Ranch in the Foothills

6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents320 acres · AB
We are a working cattle ranch about 10 minutes drive off of HiWay #1. You’re surrounded by wildlife and outdoor activities just as you step out of the door. We offer lots of privacy. During most of your stay, you will think there’s no one on the ranch but you! We’re close to a golf course, about 40 minutes to Canmore, one hour to Banff, and 40 minutes to Downtown Calgary. Perfect for day trips for activities other than camping. Our cows are tame, but not house pets, especially when they have their calves near by! They’ll be curious, but then go back to munching on grass.

Camping near Canmore guide

Overview

Set in the Bow Valley—the heart of the Rocky Mountains—Canmore is a picturesque town surrounded by towering snow-covered peaks. A quick one-hour drive from Calgary, it’s a hikers’ paradise with ample trails, lakes, and family-friendly outdoor activities on the doorstep of Banff National Park. Camping and glamping near Canmore, Alberta provides easy access to Kananaskis Country—an area consisting of five national parks and ecological reserves. While summer brings kayaking adventures, biking, and strolls down the Spring Creek boardwalk, the winter season offers just as much fun—try snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, or (for the adventurous souls) ice climbing.

Where to go

Banff National Park=

An iconic playground of craggy mountains, winding canyon trails, and crystal-clear, glacial-fed lakes, Banff National Park is a dream destination when visiting Canmore. It features 13 campgrounds, including those offering RV park camping, so no matter your mode of travel, you’ll find the ideal home base for your trip. Stop in at the must-see Lake Louise for a canoe on the mineral-rich, turquoise waters, or take a 3.5-km hike up to Lake Agnes Tea House—a traditional 1905 log cabin with over 100 fine loose-leaf teas and homemade meals. Book a horse rental to head up in the most traditional and laid-back way possible. If you’d rather get your heart rate up, cycle the Bow Valley Trail, a 48-km journey with endless views of the Canadian Rockies.

Bow Valley Provincial Park

Bow Valley Provincial Park is less visited than Banff National Park, but that’s a bonus for Hipcampers who crave peace and quiet. Here, the full-service campgrounds are decked out with fire pits and all the desired amenities, as well as rugged sites offering a backcountry experience. Stay at the Three Sisters Campground for easy access to the Bow River and a day of fishing, canoeing, or swimming. You’ll need to snag a Kananaskis Conservation Pass and register your license plate when camping at any provincial park or public land campsite in this area, while Hipcamp properties will put you in close proximity with easy access.

Bragg Creek Provincial Park

On the eastern side of Kananaskis Country, Bragg Creek Provincial Park is a scenic spot worth the visit, even with no camping offered within the park. Whether you’re spending the day exploring hiking trails, picnicking, or snowshoeing in winter, you’ll be surrounded by mountain peaks and water views of Elbow River. Just outside the park, campers can find wide-open parks offering both pet-friendly glamping and off-grid tent camping.

When to go

July and August are the best times to visit the town of Canmore if you’re looking for sunny days and warm weather. Those months also draw the most crowds, so for quieter campgrounds, try for a visit between April and June, or in September or October. Winter (between November and March) won’t be quite as busy as the height of summer, but you should still plan ahead and make sure you’re prepared for those classic cold winters Canada’s known for.
