The campground here was very nice; however, the weather in early September was frightful which dampened my personal experience as a foot of snow fell on our tent! I would love to visit here in July though! The sites are large and pretty private and the facilities are well maintained.

We come out to this area often because it is so close to Calgary and makes for a nice, relaxing and scenic drive. It is a great place to hike or bike or just hang out and look at the mountains and be in nature. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy!

we finally made it to this beautiful part of the country. We stayed in Golden BC our first night then spent 7 nights at Little Elbow Horse site. The riding was spectacular and the weather was perfect. My pictures do not do justice to this area...
