Family Camping in Southern Alberta
Note, we are now open for weekend camping!BOOK NOW
Riverbend is a family campground with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Family in central to everything we do. We are family owned and operated and we are a kid friendly campground. Our unique location on the banks of the Sheep River encompasses a diversity of habitats: parkland, marshland and river. This means we have a diverse range of campsites and each visit can seem like a unique experience. Visitors can choose from camping at full hookup RV sites (50 or 30 amp) both back-in and pull right through to tenting sites with no on-site services.
Riverbend is well equipped with clean modern washrooms, laundry, wi-fi and an onsite store. If you need milk, bread, ice, fire wood or propane it’s all here. Put your feet up, or participate in an activity like mini-golf or paddle boating. Your active youngsters will enjoy the many playgrounds and if you travel with their bicycles kids enjoy our flat terrain. Your family can also rent one of our peddle carts to tour around the property. The big kids might make use of the horse shoe pitches on site.
Close to Nature
Our philosophy is to live in harmony with nature and being close to nature is what attracts people to camping. Depending on your campsite, you might catch glimpses of wildlife out your window. Campers also enjoy walks along one of the three well maintained Nature Trails and view a variety of birds and animals- deer, beaver, and muskrat.
Close to Urban Amenities
Whatever the campground does not offer, you are sure to find in the town of Okotoks and the surrounding area. We are aslo on the doorstep of the City of Calgary, which is the headquarters of the Canadian energy industry and home of the world famous Calgary Stampede. We are just 20 kilometers south of the city limits.

This is in the heart of Southern Alberta’s ranching country, where the grain fields to the east rise up to meet foothills to the west. From our entrance, look west for a view of the spectacular Rocky Mountains. We are a short day trip to internationally renowned Banff National Park.
