Arrival Spring Creek RV-Canmore AB

29 June 2014

We arrived at our campground in Canmore AB, Spring Creek Mountain Village, around 430P. This is a busy weekend due to Canada Day on 1 July and the Calgary Stampede 4 July til 14th. The campground which has over 150 sites is completely booked. Glad we made reservations months ago. Must admit we were somewhat disappointed in the overall appearance in spite of the mountain views. Did not look like the photos on internet which were probably taken when they were not full. Cars and trucks parked along the road, sites very narrow and close. Wi-fi impossible during the day in spite of our booster. John finally got on at 4AM.
Welcome to Canmore

Our site is C-24 with creek behind. Laundry facilities for such a large park only has 2 working washers and 1 dryer. There is a better laundromat in town on Main. We are here for 10 nights at a cost of $493.00 including tax which had to be paid in full at time of booking and no refunds for early checkout. Unfortunately this is only somewhat decent campground in town. There is a walking path that takes 10 minutes along the creek into town. We will try that later. There is  even a charge for showers which we don't use. There is mobile home park on one end and new condos on other side. The park does have nice mountain views including one named 3 Sisters.. www.springcreekrv.ca



A magpie visited us, probably looking for a handout. The town of Canmore is very nice. www.tourismcanmore.com

All in all, guess the mountain views and proximity to town, make this an OK place to stay in area.
