Alberta Campers/Quadders Discussion

I wanted to start a thread so us Albertan's could share our stories, experiences or general questions about Alberta camping/quadding. It would be great to see where people like to go quadding and share their experience.

I've been owned a TT for about 5 years, this being my 5th season. I recently bought a 2016 Cherokee Grey Wolf 22RR and have been out 2 times with it, once with a Suzuki King Quad and another time without. I used to have an old 1980 Prowler by Fleetwood, a very good trailer to "learn the ropes" of camping.

Most of my camping areas have been in Banff, Rocky Mountain House, Nordegg. Now with the TH I've been doing a lot in Alder Flats, since it's the closest for me to go quadding. I will be going back out to Alder Flats this weekend for possibly my last trip of the season.

Feel free to post any comments or stories you've experienced in Alberta. Possibly some hidden gem places where you can go quadding/camping!!

Hey Thanks! Ya, I'll be winterizing it soon now too I'll at least enjoy this last weekend. Hopefully you can get yourself a nice little toy! It enhances the outdoor experience to roam free on one of those units!!

Lots of nice places to camp in the foothills of Alberta.. However some areas have lots taken away from the experience with guys dropping off their TT's before May long weekend, and picking them up after the September long weekend.. Some figure it's their own private summer home.. Some have no respect for the area they are in and leave a huge mess, tear up quad trails, drive down creeks and rivers with quads or trucks, cut down gates, figure everyone wants to hear their stereos blaring all night, figure that the place is their own private target range, etc..

There are also some that enjoy the outdoors and like to ensure that everyone in their group has a similar experience.. That clean up when they are done, so that the next people can enjoy it as well.. But it seems this group is dwindling..

Rant over..

Personally, I live 45 minutes from some great camping in the mountains, and have no desire to camp in the forestry (random camping), but I'd rather campground it.. Better experience in my books...

Ya Glen, there certainly are some people who ruin it for the rest of us... When we "dry" camp we usually do an inspection of our area right before we take off, that's the kind of group that I go camping with. We don't tear up roads or rivers, we respect.

I like to do both types of camping, the back country or "glamping" as some people call it. It all depends on the company. When we do "dry" or "boondocking" it's usually with toys, ATV/UTV's, other times its definitely camping with hook-ups.

It's all fun and games, till someone ruins it
