We are from Calgary, we enjoying going down to some of the more hidden campsites at crowsnest pass, away from the crowds !!! Fernie is always excellent if you like mountain biking, but watch out for the bears. Don't ask how I know any story for another time .....

45 miles west of us is the Kananaskis and the Highwood country . Many places to camp and they are all beautiful.

Hey there. We're from Saskatoon. If you're looking for weekend trips that aren't too far, I would suggest the provincial parks. We have not seen one yet that we don't like. Since we have a little one on the way this year, we decided to get a seasonal site at Emma Lake Prov. park. Only 10 more days!!!

We were supposed to spend a month in the Rockies but that wouldn't work with a couple week old.

Oh wow. A month in the Rockies would have been cool. Girlfriend wants to go fishing tomorrow so we're thinking of just going out to echo lake provincial park for a couple days

ok if you insist here is the website for Crownest pass ....

Provincial Recreation Areas in SW Alberta - Rocky Mountain Camping

Most people don't know about these as for some reason they are not included in the Provincial Park website for Alberta, not sure why.

and some photos from last year - mind you it some of them are a fair distance down a gravel road, with no water or power, but that suits us just fine. Beautiful lake, plenty of fish in it, warm enough to swim / paddle

Ok uploading photos is a pain - I had to downgrade them sooooo much to get them within the size limit - I hope that they come out ok ?

We live in southern Ontario but head to the US every time the trailer is hitch on,it's way too expensive to go any where in Canada except the border, we have the idea here that when you buy gas you should buy the oil company to, people say it's taxes but once you actually compare it's just pure greed by the oil companies.

It does suck the costs of fuel now. It's 126.9 in Regina. Makes it hard to afford long distance travels. Guess you save on hotel costs but not near enough sometimes

Used to live in Northern Ontario and there are a lot of nice parks there.

Echo is a nice park. Went there 2 yrs ago and really like it. Here's a few pics. This was before I bought my Lacroose trailer.
