    Spent the weekend camping with our family (6yrs, 4yrs, 17 mth). The Sandy Beach campgound is cramped and the service buildings are not as clean as I would expect. Yeah there are Bison roaming around the park and a big beach but you can not swim in the water. Try keeping a 17 month old who loves the water out of the water when playing at the beach. The park staff at check in couldn’t answer my questions, you had to go to the visitor centre to get trail maps which was a 12 KM drive. You have to hunt around for fire wood as the stock in the campground went fast. Found batteries in the ashes in our fire pit along with a couple of tin cans. All in all for a National Park perhaps my expectations were a little high but this wasn’t a back country camping trip. Won’t be returning to this park to camp or visit anytime soon.

    Need to pay to get in unless you have a pass. Camping gets full very quickly here, but you can always book at the Strathcona Wilderness Center if so, not too far and much more natural landscape. In any case, this Park has the option to rent canoes and nice hike with information on the wildlife and such.

    Its just great to have a National Park within a hour of Edmonton.Tons to do, beach, walking paths, hiking trails, campground, even a golf course with a fully licensed cafe! (You can buy beer here even when there’s a liquor ban on long weekends!) Not to mention the bison which freely roam the park, it’s pretty good!
