Surrounded by expanses of golden canola and acres of leafy green potato fields, the town of Vauxhall is the epitome of rural life in southern Alberta. Known as the Potato Capital of the West, Vauxhall is the municipal hub for dozens of Alberta spud farmers, and the business centre for some of the largest potato producers and exporters in all of Canada. You know you're in the heart of potato country when you're greeted by Vauxhall's mascots - Sammy and Samantha Spud, two enormous potato figures that stand smiling and waving hello at the entrance to town.
Located along Highway 36, about half an hour from Taber, Vauxhall is a friendly country town of almost 1,300 people. There are great recreational possibilities in this small community and wonderful campgrounds that offer plenty of peace and quiet in the abundant Alberta sunshine.
