Dinosaur Provincial Park Campground

Camping at Dinosaur Provincial Park Campground

Update: Comfort Camping at Dinosaur Provincial Park has been closed permanently by the province of Alberta.

Dinosaur Provincial Park Campground is an incredibly fun place to camp because you’re in the heart of the badlands within a few steps of your campsite.

Amenities on site include a playground, showers (closed for the 2020 due to COVID-19), convenience shop, bathrooms and hiking trails in the area. Campsites range in price between $29/night for a non-powered site, and $37/night for a 15/30 amp, powered site.

Visit the campsite earlier in the season for a more temperate climate, as later in the season through August it gets very, very hot – making it a little more difficult to explore through the badlands with children or adults sensitive to heat.

Dinosaur Provincial Park Campground

Dinosaur Campground is in Dinosaur Provincial Park, 48 km northeast of Brooks off Hwy. 876.  There are over 120 RV and tent-friendly sites, including unserviced, powered and pull-through options. The campground is nestled in a valley by the Red Deer River and shaded by cotton-wood trees. Many sites back onto a creek. Explore the beautiful, unique landscape on foot, take a guided tour and look for dinosaur bones, or enjoy a show at the amphitheatre. Whatever you like to do, camping in the badlands is an unforgettable experience.

Exploring Dinosaur Provincial Park Area

Coulee Viewpoint. This 1.4 km looped trail will lead you from the Visitor’s Centre to the stairs in the valley you see when you’re driving into the campground. Fun terrain with plenty to climb, the views are phenomenal. The whole thing takes under an hour out and back, depending on how much time you spend exploring at the end, and the loop is an interesting interpretive experience for families.
