Campground Regulations

Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site of Canada is a protected place where special rules apply. Be sure to:

Register and pay at the Self-Registration Station or Visitor Centre.
Your fees help us operate the facilities.

Leave it for others to enjoy.
Whatever treasure you find – be it a rock, a flower, or an arrowhead – it belongs where it is.

Camp only in tents.
This is a small, tenting-only campground. The parking lot cannot accommodate RVs.

Keep pets on a leash.
Unrestrained pets may provoke wildlife attacks, harass wildlife, and endanger people.

Respect wildlife.
It is against the law to feed, touch, disturb or otherwise harass any wild animals – big or small.

Store all food and food-related items in a vehicle (not a tent).
This applies whenever these items are not in use, at night while you are sleeping, or when your site is unattended for any length of time.
Anything that has an odour or could be considered food may attract bears and other wildlife to your site.

Light fires only in designated pits.
By using fire rings provided, you reduce the risk of wild fires and minimize damage to vegetation.

Use only firewood provided.
It is illegal to collect or burn any wood from the forest. Even twigs and deadwood play an important role in the forest ecosystem!

Leave your ATV at home.
Off-highway and snow vehicles are not permitted.

Alcohol is prohibited except at your registered campsite.
