May 12, 2024

Ah… the feeling of a warm, crackling campfire, the chirps of crickets perched somewhere in the woods and the glow of the aurora borealis above— there’s nothing like camping in the prairies. Whether you are looking for a camping retreat in Edmonton, or just a short drive away, there are plenty of places to unroll your sleeping bag, pitch your tent, or park your R.V. and take in the sights and sounds of the wilderness. From yurts and tipis to a full on glamping experience, you don't have to go far to rest and recharge.
