Based on a stay on August 30-31, 2015.

A quiet campground close to the trails and pie at Miner’s Cafe…

The campground is on the edge of the North Nordegg subdivision, yet offers nicely treed sites in a quiet setting. It’s a great option if you’re planning to explore the area, enjoy some of the nearby hikes (Baldy, Coliseum Mountain and Eagle Mountain are all nearby), learn about the local history on one of the mine tour or just to relax by the campfire.

The tall trees make for a cozy atmosphere

Private site in the trees

The campground looked clean and well maintained with lots of trees. Services include hand pumps for water (the water needs to be treated), firewood, dry toilets, and bear proof garbage disposal.
