Campgrounds in Alberta are always full, but this year most are booked solid. If you didn't book your campsite back in May when reservations opened, chances are you are going to have an incredibly hard time finding a spot. However, that doesn't mean you can't get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. Alberta has a lot of overnight sights, but also a lot of day use picnic areas that are first come, first served. Unload your camper and spend the day by the water, roasting marshmallows and enjoying some camping, even if modified. Here are some day use areas near Calgary, Alberta for you to check out:
Two Jack Lake
Ghost lake Reservoir
Upper Lake Kananaskis
Alternatively, check out some of the local parks right here in YYC such as Bowness Park.
