Interlake's Campground Alberta

  Rating:    Ratings 5 Star
Sites: RV & Tent 1st Come or Reserve: 1st Come

 

Location: 65kms south on the #60 Kananaskis Trail highway, 154kms west of Calgary. Peter Lougheed Provincial Park Kananaskis Country Alberta.

Description: Interlake's campground contains 48 well treed campsites for both RV's and tents. Half of the cites back onto Lower Kananaskis Lake. Views of the lake and the surrounding valley will keep you mesmerized. Boaters can leave a small boat on shore right in front of their campsite. Peter Lougheed Provincial Park is as nice as the National Parks and does not require a park pass however during the summer months it fills fast and can be crowded. There is no official reserve system for Interlake's Campground however I often see reserved cones located on empty sites. Amenities include nearby paved bike paths, wheel chair accessible sites, water, dry toilets, picnic tables and fire pits. Dry firewood is available here for a fee. Grizzly Bears frequent the cleared power line located next to the campsites. There are several hiking trails located near here along with a paved bike path system that connects all the campgrounds. You can also ride your bike to nearby Upper and Lower Kananaskis lakes. Both lakes have very nice picnic areas with picnic tables located close to the lakes edge. Upper Kananaskis Lake has a well groomed hiking trail around the entire lake that offers beautiful views of Mount Lyautey, Mount Sarrail, Mount Foch and Mount Fox. Trailheads to Rawson Lake, Elbow Lake, Elbow Lake to Elbow Loop, Hidden Lake, Kananaskis Fire Lookout, Fossil Falls, Astor Lake and Three Isle Lake are located near here. Both the Upper and Lower Kananaskis Lakes have excellent boat launches for both power boats and small water craft. Canoeing the Upper Kananaskis Lake on a calm summers evening would be an unforgettable experience. There are Rainbow Trout, Cutthroat Trout and Bull Trout in both lakes. You'll need a fishing license to try out your luck.


William Watson Lodge is located a few kms north of here. The lodge was created to provide equal access to the park for people of all abilities and provides excellent accommodations for seniors and those with disabilities. I tip my hat to Jean Lougheed who thought of creating this Lodge and her husband Peter Lougheed who made it happen. Skies here rank # 2-3 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates. 

Near Here:
Local campgrounds include Elkwood, Boulton Creek, Lower Kananaskis Lake, Canyon Creek, Mount Sarrail, and Mount Kidd. Trailheads to Upper Kananaskis Lake, Elbow Lake, Elbow Lake to Elbow Loop, Hidden Lake, Fossil Falls, Kananaskis Fire Lookout, Ptarmigan Cirque, Tombstone Lakes, Mist Mountain, Mount Lipsett, and Robertson Glacier are all located near here. This is bear country, food and food related items must be stored properly.
