5 Great Campsites In and Around Red Deer

Albertans are tough. We endure long and cold winters only to enjoy the heck out of our summers and Red Deer is one of the best locations in the province to do it. Red Deer offers plenty of natural escapes for camping, some within the comfort of city limits and others deep in the backcountry bush. If you’re keen on camping, Red Deer, Alberta is the place to do it.

We love the smell of a smokey open fire, the taste of burnt marshmallows, the fresh air, and endless starry nights. Whether it’s in Red Deer or in the County, here are some of the campgrounds we love to explore.
