The Milk River area is famous for its strikingly stark landscape – broad swaths of windswept prairie, accentuated by undulating grasslands and hoodoos that appear to have remained unchanged for millennia. It’s somewhat surprising then, to find a beautiful green oasis in town, just a stone’s throw from the highway.
8 Flags Campground is a cool and shady reprieve in the middle of the Alberta badlands. Open year round, this pristine mini-paradise is a favorite among fishermen, kayakers, and canoers as well, because the river is conveniently close by. The Golf Course is nearby too, and stay-and-play packages are available. Guests appreciate the upgraded facilities – the showers are new, and the restrooms were recently renovated. Best of all, the rates are very reasonable, whether you plan to stay for the night, the week, or all month long.
