Black Nugget Lake Campground

Nestled in the serene beauty of Beaver County and just a short drive from Tofield, Black Nugget Lake Campground offers a peaceful escape on grounds transformed from a former coal mine. This unique destination welcomes both seasoned campers and newcomers to enjoy its 90 diverse sites, catering to a range of camping styles from full-service to non-serviced, including tent and group sites.

Embrace outdoor activities like kayaking, birdwatching, fishing, and hiking around the picturesque lake. Enjoy our upgraded facilities, including renovated concession, improved washrooms, showers, and a revamped dump station, ensuring your stay is comfortable.

Black Nugget Lake, teeming with rainbow and tiger trout, invites anglers for fishing against a backdrop of breathtaking sunsets. Our day-use areas are perfect for picnicking or simply relaxing in lush surroundings. Planning your getaway?

To provide for better management and visitor satisfaction Beaver County has implemented a policy for Reservations, Cancellations and Refunds.

The policy provides restrictions on over-booking and last minute cancellations resulting in more sites being available for  other campers. The policy also ensures that the reservation holder is responsible for the actions of all-party members. Refunds will not be given for an eviction, vacating a campsite early, or for inclement weather. 

The policy is based on practices which have been used in the past, and is based mainly on the refund policy established for Alberta Provincial Parks campgrounds.
