Waterton campgrounds filling up

With the recent warm weather here in southern Alberta many people are looking forward to driving off to a campground this weekend.

Waterton Lakes National Park is no exception.

Christy Gustavison, the visitor experience manager for the park updated us on if the campgrounds are full and if there is a potential fire hazard in the mountain regions.

“The fire hazard is at moderate, and we wish to remind all visitors to Waterton Lakes National Park that any fires need to be in designated firepits or in one of our kitchen shelters. Our town site campground has over 200 reservable sites, and we operate at full capacity from now until the end of the reservation period in the fall. And so we do anticipate that this weekend, like others in the summer, will be busy.”

A watercraft and pedestrian trail between Waterton Lakes National Park and Glacier National Park will soon be reopened for the summer season. Staff say the Goat Haunt area will be ready for visitors on June 24.
