A pretty campground along the shores of Goldeye Lake and close to Nordegg.
Goldeye Lake is a popular family campground along the David Thompson Highway. Located near the lake, the sites are secluded and offer the classic Alberta Parks camping experience.
You can spend the weekend there, fishing on the lake, renting a canoe from nearby Goldeye Centre or simply enjoying a stroll along its shores. If you’re looking for a little more adventure, this makes for a great base camp with Nordegg and Abraham Lake nearby along with a host of hiking trails, historic mine tours and much more to do.
The campground is divided into two loops with the first one consisting of 19 sites near the lake and the other loop in the forest. The sites range from large RV sites to smaller sites that would be perfect for tenting.

We all have our part to do to keep this place special. Planning ahead is key to ensuring that we all continue to enjoy adventures in the Nordegg & Abraham Lake region. These are a few of the things you can do to help:
Minimize your impact by using existing sites, fire rings and toilets instead of creating your own.
Know about current fire bans, make sure that your fire is completely out before you go and buy firewood instead of cutting down trees. Remember that shooting fireworks is not allowed in the region.
Keep your site clean and your food stored inside your vehicle to help keep our wildlife wild. Always use bear-proof garbage bins.
While alcohol is now permitted in some Alberta Parks day-use areas, none of those are in our region. Alcohol is only allowed at registered campsites.
Be mindful of your neighbours and other visitors, including keeping noise to a minimum.
Be prepared for adventures in a remote area. Explore within your skills to reduce the strain on our volunteer search and rescue team.
Remember that cell service is limited. We recommend carrying a satellite communicator, like a Zoleo, on your adventures.
Support local businesses and communities in Cline River, the Bighorn and Nordegg.
