The campground is nestled in a valley by the Red Deer River and shaded by cotton-wood trees. Many sites back onto a creek.

Whatever you like to do, camping in the badlands is an unforgettable experience.

Geography:

Park geology provides evidence that this area was a lush coastal plain adjacent to the Bearpaw Sea, at the time of the dinosaurs, but the present day landscape is the result of glacial melt-water from the end of the Wisconsin Ice Age, only 15,000 years ago. Today, the Park contains three important habitats: prairie grassland, badlands and riparian (riverside), which together support a rich bio-diversity. Towering plains cottonwood trees, prickly pear cactus, and blue grama grass all contribute to the variety of plant life. Over 165 species of birds can be seen in the park, including threatened species such as the ferruginous hawk and Rev. 02/2013 golden eagle. Mammals living here include cottontail rabbits, bats, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, weasels, porcupines, red fox, coyotes and bobcats.
