Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park Campground

The prices range from $23 to $31 per night, and electrical hookups and available for RVs. If you’re interested in camping year-round in Alberta, this place can be on your list at any time of the year.
Kinbrook Island Campground
You might be surprised to learn that this beautiful campground is open in the winter, too! Located lakeside in Kinbrook Island Provincial Park, this place is the essence of serenity. Each site is well-shaded with beautiful trees and also quite private. The wetlands nearby are ideal for birdwatching, and there are endless trails to walk around and explore. If you decide to visit in the winter, you should be ready for a slightly less luxurious experience than you’d find in the summer. The showers and flush toilets aren’t able past Thanksgiving weekend, and firewood may not be available, either. The outhouses are open, but the campground won’t have water. You can book a site with electricity, so you're all set if you’ve got your own water.
