Starland Campground Alberta

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

 

Location: 40kms north of Drumheller, 10kms east of Morin. Red Deer valley Alberta.

Description: The Starland campground is where the (RASC) Alberta Star Party is held every September. The surrounding natural odd shaped land formations are called the Badlands. These arid softer sedimentary rock formations have been created by several million years of erosion. The campground is mainly located on open grass next to the Red Deer River with 50 sites for both RV's and tents. Most of the campsites are open to each other allowing for spacious group camping with a few choice sites located next to the river. Amenities include picnic tables, fire pits, water, dry toilets, refuse containers, camp kitchen, firewood, ball diamonds, boat launch and playground. If you want to explore the surrounding Badlands you can hike for several miles in both directions along the Red Deer river. Make sure to pack plenty of water in the summer as it can be very hot and dry here. The Cactus plants found growing is a good indication of just how dry and arid it is. Starland campground would make a good starting point for canoeing the Red Deer River south to the Bleriot Ferry campground located 12kms downstream, or an overnight float to Drumheller. The nearby town of Drumheller has several souvenir, fossil shops, restaurants, lodging, shopping, gas, grocery stores and home of the famous Royal Tyrrell Museum. Night skies here rank # 4 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.

 Near Here: Local campgrounds include Tolman East and Bleriot Ferry.  The Tyrrell Museum is also located near here.
