For many Albertans, Thanksgiving weekend is a time to get together with family and friends to enjoy one another’s company and a hearty meal! This year, why not escape to a provincial park and have your Thanksgiving dinner surrounded by Alberta’s autumn splendor?
As we bid a fond farewell to the Alberta summer with a frozen tear in our eye, we take a moment to reflect on another excellent summer camping season in Alberta’s provincial parks. Despite a wet start it’s safe to say campgrounds around the province saw lots of happy campers.
We aren’t just telling campfire stories:
- More than 130,000 reservations of regular, comfort, and group campsites were made, and more than 410,000 campsites occupied.
- The online reservation system surpassed a half a million registrations this season, an amazing feat considering it was only introduced in 2009 and only about 30% of Alberta’s campgrounds are on the system.
- The number of online reservation subscribers increased almost 50,000 this year alone.
