60kms east of Banff
National Park on the #11 David Thompson highway. 140kms west of Rocky Mountain
House Alberta. Note, 6.5kms gravel road access.
Crescent Falls campground has a remote feel to it and better suited for tents
due to the gravel road access, and every spring the road located at the
campground tends to wash out.
Check the official campground web
site link below before heading out.
There are 29 well treed campsites with picnic tables and fire
pits. 6 of these sites are walk-in tent sites located next to the Big Horn
River. Amenities include water pump, dry toilets, fire wood, equestrian area,
corrals, loading ramp, and community kitchen. There is also a very nice day use
area plus an equestrian campground with all the necessary amenities for horses. The campground is located
very close to
Falls view point with a few
nice hiking trails that run along
the top of the Big Horn Valley.
Spectacular views of the
double tiered Crescent Falls and
Big Horn Canyon can be found here.
Interesting to note that there have been several Sasquatch sightings in this
area. Night skies here rank # 1 on the
Bortle Scale. See the official web site
