It looks like it will be a nice weekend, and a lot of Central Albertans will be wanting to head out to do some camping.

One thing you will want to do is reserve a spot, as many of Alberta's campsites fill up fast during the Spring and Summer months. Parks Alberta is currently booking to August 7th, 2024.

Here's a guide on how to reserve your spot:

2024 Reservations

  • Reservations can be made 90-days in advance for individual and backcountry camping camping and 180-days in advance for group and comfort camping. Once reservations begin, the first date when reservations can be made will be 90 days before the campground’s season opening dates.
  • The booking window advances by one day each morning at 9:00 a.m. to provide fair and equal access to both online and call centre users. Your arrival date must be within the designated booking window before a reservation can be made. Once you select your arrival date, you can book up to the next 10 days, depending on availability.
  • Campers can book a maximum of 10 consecutive nights per reservation to enable fair and equitable access for all campers.
  • This helps reduce booking changes, overbooking and no-shows, which gives more Albertans the opportunity to experience camping in our provincial parks.
  • Campers can stay for a total of 16 consecutive nights in an individual, backcountry and comfort campsite; however, multiple reservations must be made. The maximum stay in a group camping area continues to be five (5) consecutive nights.
