We plan to have a camp host available and at various times an educational guide to help with self-guided tours. You will be given free self-guided tour books on the Ranch to explore what nature and ranching has to offer.
We will also provide free educational information to some of the surrounding historical sites. This will give opportunity to see the surrounding area.
we are designing this opportunity to be as flexible as possible. This will be a great time for you and your children to learn together about our local history and natural setting. Our train is undergoing maintenance and will not be operating.
What will it Cost?
Aspen Ranch Camping 2023
Individual booking campsite rates:
All Rates are suggested donation
For a serviced site (includes water and hook up, 30 amp power plug-in, wifi, and flush toilets available), $45 per night per unit
For an un-serviced site for tenting (with access to washrooms & water): $35 per tent
Up to a maximum up 5 people per unit for these prices, additional people $5 each person, for both individual bookings and group bookings.
Electrical power for the un-serviced sites can be purchased for an additional fee of $10 per outlet for 1st night and $5 per night per outlet thereafter. There will be a maximum of 10 outlets available. Bring your own outdoor-rated extension cord. [Power is limited so very few high-use appliances cannot be used at the same time, or the breaker will trip.]
2023 group rates:
3 - 4 serviced sites booked together $40 per night per unit
5 - 10 serviced sites booked together $35 per night per unit
3-4 Un-serviced tent sites booked together: $30 each tent
5 or more un-serviced tent sites booked together: $25 per tent
Additional people over the 5 is allowed per unit at $5 per extra person.
A shower fee will be charged to all Groups camping of $25 per weekend to offset the extra cost of natural gas and carbon tax. We have a limited amount of hot water at any time, so showers need to be spaced apart and not when dishes are also being washed. Hot water can be conserved by ‘shipboard showering’: where you get wet, then turn off the water while lathering up hair and body, then turn on water to rinse off, then repeat if needed.
Power for un-serviced tent group camping is available at the same rates stated above.
Day use: For those who want to come out to the Ranch for the day there is a $5 per person per day fee.
This is country camping in the Alberta foothills the temperatures drop especially at night and if windy, so come prepared with warm clothes,(yes even tuques and mitts in the Summer) warm sleeping bags and blankets to bundle up, especially in the evenings and overnight.
You can cancel your site anytime up to 7 days before your booked date. A $12 transaction fee is applied to all cancellations. Please note if you cancel a multi night reservation you will be refunded all nights more than 7 days from cancellation. Thus if the first night is 6 days out and the second 7 days out you will receive a refund for the second night less the cancellation fee. Please call us with any questions. Thanks
