Campsites at the Crandell Mountain and Belly River campgrounds are available only on a first-come, first-served basis.

We do not take reservations for these campgrounds. During peak season (July-August), campgrounds tend to fill quickly and are usually full for the night by early afternoon.

Reservations can also be made for the Belly River group camp. This camping area is only for groups of 25 or more. Please call (403) 859-2224.
