What's New in Alberta Camping

Camping is one of the quintessential experiences in nature and now it can be enjoyed without special equipment or outdoor skills making it possible for more visitors to experience the thrill of sleeping outside under a starry night sky.

Get oTENTik
Think half cabin and half tent and you’ll have the basic idea of an oTENTik, the latest camping innovation in Banff and Jasper national parks. A wooden floor, canvas covered walls, beds, a table and chairs, a wood stove, a fire pit and a barbecue make getting close to nature comfortable and give visitors time to enjoy the campfire instead of wrestling with tents. Just bring your own bedding and food.

Comfort Camping in Dino-land
A mysterious moonscape of rock formations known as hoodoos and striped sandstone canyons makes visitors to Dinosaur Provincial Park feel as if they have stepped into another world – a world once ruled by massive dinosaurs that today is the territory of explorers and adventurers. Spending the night in the heart of the Canadian Badlands is now easier with the introduction of comfort camping facilities in the form of high quality canvas tent cabins with wood floors, beds, heaters, fridges, tables and chairs.

Tipi Time in Waterton 
On a clear night, tipi campers in Waterton Lakes National Park can glimpse the stars through the top flap of an authentic tipi the way Alberta’s First Nations did for thousands of years. It’s one of the most unique new camping experiences in the Canadian Rockies.
