  Rating:    Ratings 4 Star
Sites: RV & Tent 1st Come or Reserve: 1st Come

 

Location: 220kms east of Red Deer and 18kms north of the Village of Consort. Situated on Gooseberry Lake. Southeast Alberta.

Description: Gooseberry Lake campground contains 82 campsites for both RV's and tents. Amenities include group camping, picnic tables, public phone, showers, water, power, fire wood, wading pool, play ground, baseball diamond and a sani dump. Gooseberry Lake is to shallow for motor boats and the lakes high alkalinity creates poor fishing. However there is another nearby pond stocked with Trout. Gooseberry Lake campground is not located directly on the lake, there is no real beach or swimming area but the grounds are well maintained and nicely laid out. The park has a remote prairie feel to it with campsites located on cut grass. A few of the sites are surrounded by shrub thickets that offer good privacy. The park is excellent for bird watching and is a major breeding area for shore birds. There are a few trails in the area that can be hiked or biked. I don't know how they derived at the name Gooseberry for the Lake. Gooseberries are not native to Alberta and I did not see any. They have been planted somewhere nearby. A few private cottages are also located next to the campground. Night skies here are ink black and it would be perfect for star gazing. Night skies here rank #1-2 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.
