Location: 32kms northeast of Brooks. 219kms east of Calgary. Central Alberta.

Description: Dinosaur Provincial Park is a designated UNESCO world heritage site. This area is world renowned for it's Dinosaur fossils and the natural oddly shaped land formations called the Badlands, created by several million years of erosion. There are 126 campsites located within the park all with picnic tables and fire pits. A few sites are surrounded by cottonwood tress and willow bushes creating some privacy however most of the campsites are located on open grassy areas next to the Badlands. Amenities include comfort camping units, water, toilets, showers, power, refuse containers, fire wood, playground, amphitheater, small craft boat launch located on the Red Deer River, concession store, interpretive visitors centre and sani dump. There are several interpretive trails located in the nearby badlands with secure displays of dinosaur fossil digs. Tours are also available that offer more views of the local hoodoos and other major dinosaur finds. Unfortunately one is not allowed to hike off of the designated paths as the parks department is trying to preserve potential finds of new fossils. You are not allowed to pick up or remove any fossils in Dinosaur Provincial Park. The nearby interpretive visitors centre, more like a small museum, has several excellent fossils that have been found in the area. The Royal Tyrrell Museum located approximately 150kms northwest of here contains several of the fossils found in this area. Night skies here rank #2-3 on the Bortle Scale. The road leading to the campground is paved. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.
