Location: 81kms east of Calgary. 7kms south of Carseland next to the Bow River. Southern Alberta.

Description: Wyndam Carseland Campground Provincial Park contains 100 campsites for both RV's and tents. Several of the the sites are surrounded by thick bush and large cottonwood trees creating a wind break and privacy. This campground fills fast on weekends due to it's close proximity to the city of Calgary. Amenities include group camps, horseshoe pits,  a small store, playground, nearby golfing, excellent, fishing, fire pits, dry toilets, water, garbage bins, sani dump and picnic tables. Dry firewood is available for sale. The small store located at the entrance offers limited groceries, a coffee bar, ice and ice cream. Wyndam Carseland Campground should be designated as a bird sanctuary. During spring and summer I'm sure you can find every bird species native to Alberta here. Regular campers hang bird feeders along with tripod mounted cameras. Owls can be heard calling at night and during the day. Pelicans and Double Crested Cormorants can be seen fishing near the weir. This stretch of the Bow River in either direction, up or down stream, is excellent for Fly Fishing from early spring to late fall. You'll need a fishing license to try your luck. There is a short walk from the campground along the river heading up stream towards the irrigation weir and day use area. The weirs "Extreme Danger" sign shown below is true, several individuals have drowned trying to float it. Night skies here rank #4-5 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.
