Description: Two O’clock Creek campground is well suited for both tents and RV’s offering 20 campsites with picnic tables and fire pits. Fire wood is available for a fee. Most of the campsites are located on open grass with a few choice sites next to Two O’clock Creek. Bring insect repellent. No See Ums can be nasty here.
Amenities include water, dry toilets, group camp kitchens with wood burning cook stoves. The adjoining group campground is nicely spaced and one of the nicest in Alberta. The North Saskatchewan river is located a short walk south of the highway. This area is very important to the local Stoney Indians. Native peoples have resided here for centuries and consider most of this land sacred. One can see why they settled here. The weather is warm and dry with little rain or snow. In fact it is classified as the driest location in the Canadian Rockies.
The private land west of the campground is home to native vision quest and sundance ceremonial sites. Vision quest sites can be identified by several strips of colored cloth tied to trees in a ceremonial fashion.
