Starting on Feb. 19, reservations can be made online at or by calling 1-877-537-2757.

“Albertans and visitors love to explore our beautiful provincial parks,” said Christine Cusanelli, minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation, in a news release.

“Our campsite reservation service is a convenient way to plan a trip — either to a favourite campground or one discovered by browsing online.”

The reservation service allows campers to book individual sites up to 90 days in advance.

There are also 147 provincial group camping areas with reservations available starting on Feb. 11 and bookings can be made for the entire summer.

Any cancellation or changes to an individual or group camping reservation must be made at least 72 hours in advance.
