MEET OUR FURRED, FINNED, AND FEATHERED FRIENDS:
‘Friendly’ will show you why Clydesdales are called ‘The Gentle Giants; his brother ‘Victor’ is somewhat more aloof unless you have oats!
Ace and Stretch, the normal-sized boys are two of the nicest equine lawn ornaments you’ll ever meet.
For those a bit unsure of the large equines and for toddlers, we have our little herd of Miniature Horses: Gemma, Big Red and Lambchop who can’t get enough TLC and horse crumbles.
The canine cadre consists of Molly the Border Collie who’ll chase sticks and balls all day long, Daisy, the Marema princess, and Blue our new Bernese Mountain Dog. All are friendlier than a basket full of kittens.
And speaking of cats, Daniel and Henrick, the red point, blue-eyed feline barn brothers handle rodent control and human interaction with equal intensity. For non cat lovers they know what “Psssst!” means.
Help fatten our Rainbow Trout with the twice-daily fish feeding frenzy.

We had a wonderful stay here! The camp manager, Mike, was very welcoming and kind. We really enjoyed chatting with him and his guided tour of the grounds. It was such a quiet and peaceful stay, and the views were stunning. We can’t wait to come back!
Road Apple Acres is truly a lush and quiet gem of a campground. If you want a peaceful camping experience with a welcoming and kind host, then this is the place. The sites are well-spaced apart, allowing for privacy and a relaxed way to get away from city life.
Mike, the camp manager, took good care of us and ensured we had everything we needed. He even brought us a large container of water right at our campsite. We were fortunate to come when the air was clear and the weather was beautiful. Our first night was the peak of the Perseids meteor shower. There was no moon, and our site was roomy, so we had an unimpeded view of the night sky. Jupiter and Saturn were visible, as were the spectacular meteors streaking across the sky! Amazing.
Our young one .loved feeding the miniature horses and exploring the many paths throughout Ernie’s campground. We picked raspberries and took pictures of some plants to identify at home since we forgot our nature book.
Ernie and Mike were very hospitable and invited my husband down to play his ukulele with them around a campfire.
Overall, it was a wonderful camping experience and ticked all of our wants: quiet, secluded, and family-friendly. Our little family can’t wait to come back!
My family and I had an unforgettable camping experience at Road Apple Acres. Ernie and his staff are so friendly and worm-harted, we sit around the fire pit to enjoy the music show, which brought some beautiful memories to us. It is not just a campsite, it is home for the travelers to relax and enjoy. Huge thanks to Ernie, we will visit again and recommend Road Apple Acres to my friends for sure.
This is a fantastic campground that Ernie has put together with the help of his groundskeeper, Mike. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and the hosts are super friendly. We had been traveling for more than 12 hours and they had already prepared our campsite for us. Their dogs are great and their barn is very unique. I highly recommend anyone to stay here on their way through Alberta.
Nice, quiet and ernie is so nice!
Thanks Ernie for your hospitality. Our family had a wonderful time in your site and with animals!
The site is so huge and quiet! If you want to have a piece break this is the perfect place.
Ernie is a great host and always here to help you. Kids have so much fun with horses and dogs. This is a really good place!
What a great little spot that Ernie has. It’s truly an absolute gem of a site - we’ll be coming back for sure.
Numerous spots for you to choose where to pitch your tent, with a fire pit and picnic bench always close at hand. The complimentary box of firewood was a really nice touch. Ernie’s a great host as well and was more than happy to let me and my daughter visit with the horses and play with the dogs.
Would be a great to take the whole family out here for a weekend.
