Whether you want to stay close to the city or crave fall and winter adventures in the wilderness, there is a year-round campground for you. Check out these three incredible year-round sites.

Longriders RV Park

Located only 15 minutes northeast of Edmonton near the town of Gibbons, Longriders RV Park offers year-round camping in a quiet setting with easy access to the city. They offer 228 sites on daily, weekly, and monthly winter rates that range from $49 per night to $990 a month. Amenities include complimentary wi-fi, propane services, coin laundry and showers, fire pits, picnic tables, firewood, and extensive riverside hiking trails. In the winter, Longriders RV Park also offers sleigh rides on their property. To find out more or book a spot, call (780) 923-3300. Longriders RV Park is located at 23136 Secondary Highway 643 in Gibbons.

Crimson Lake Campground

Crimson Lake Campground, located just west of Rocky Mountain House, is an excellent destination for enjoying the beauty of the Rockies in all seasons. In the summer, campers can enjoy boating and a large beach. In the winter, it is the perfect place for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking. Unlike most campgrounds, the interpretive programs at Crimson Lake Provincial Park run all year long. The campground store is open every Saturday throughout the winter for snowshoe rentals and firewood sales. Visit the park on Family Day weekend to experience the many free activities offered at the Crimson Lake Winterfest. Winter camping sites have power, but they do not have water and are not reservable. There are 11 sites available in the off-season for $20 per night.

Beauvais Lake Campground

Beauvais Lake Campground is the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful scenery of rolling foothills in any season. Beauvais Lake Provincial Park is a popular destination for bird and wildlife watching as well as fishing in the summer months. In the winter, visitors enjoy snowshoeing, skiing, and ice fishing. The campground has 15 powered winter campsites that are first come, first served and cost $25 per night. Campers should note that there is not any firewood available on the campground and there is no drinking water available in the winter months. Beauvais Lake Campground is located southwest of Pincher Creek.

Wherever you camp in the off-season, make sure your RV is winterized properly and bring adequate drinking water and firewood.
