Location: 173kms south of Calgary. 31kms east of Vulcan on road #542 west shore of Lake McGregor Reservoir. Southern Alberta.
This campground contains
100 campsites for both RV's and tents.
Some of the sites are surrounded by willow bushes creating a wind break and some
privacy. However most are located on open grass with a few choice sites next to
the lake. Amenities include, playground, fire pits, dry toilets, water, garbage bins,
boat launch, and picnic tables. Lake McGregor Reservoir is excellent for,
water skiing, wind surfing and fishing. In 1920 the reservoir was created for irrigation and is approximately
22kms long with it's dam at the north end. Fisherman will find strong
populations of Walleye, Yellow Perch, Lake Whitefish, Rainbow Trout and Northern Pike. You'll need a
license to try your
luck. It's close location to Calgary makes it a favorite for
boaters. The boat launch is well constructed but poorly located. Strong cross winds
blow up the lake makeing it difficult to load a boat and often requires one
to enter the water to prevent the boat from blowing sideways over the trailer wheels. The
grassy knoll next to the campground is excellent for astronomers and star gazers. Night skies here rank #2-3 on the Bortle Scale.
The road leading to the
campground is mostly paved with views to the horizon in all directions. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and
