More campground and not so much an RV park. The sites and roads are gravel, tight and not level. The layout for the sites are a shared hookup area with your neighbor just a couple of feet away. The park has campground quality bathrooms and showers, a small pool and a convenience store attached to the checkin office. We would look for a different park the next time we visit Calgary.

While this park has a fabulous view of Calgary and is so close to Calgary that staying there is our best option, we were disappointed with this place. We were packed in so snugly to our neighbor trailer that it was very difficult to park ours and being on a hillside did not help with that process! And while we were not supposed to park our truck on the grass, we had to, due to no other room to park due to the extreme lack of space provided. It really appeared to us that each campsite was in reality just 1/2 of what a campsite should have been, and in any other place we have been to, is. Luckily for us, our neighbours finished listening to their TV quite early at night. Annoyingly, the laundry machines were out of order. There was a lovely outdoor swimming pool which we could have taken our grandchildren to. With all the issues we had with this campground. we would probably use this place again as it is so close to our relatives' home and an easy access coming into Calgary from Banff.

We had a reservation for two months and we arrived and were put in the "first come" area. We requested 50 amp servvice and told the size f the rig. The outlet box had 50 amp plugs but no 50 amp service. only 30 amp and it was on the low side of voltage. The site was very uneven and difficult to get into and out of. We mved to another site and the same thing. The second night requested a move a got a site with 50 amp and level and large enough to get into and out of. The internet is "really poor" unless you are near the clubhouse and we asked if there was good internet in the park at all place and were told yes. The laundry room and pool were first class. Roads in and out rough. It is really convenient to the olympic park and freeway. They had a shuttle service but we did not use it.
