Campground Guidelines

Campground Guidelines

On May 6, 2020 Beaver County Council made the decision to open Beaver County’s campgrounds on June 1, 2020 based on recommendations established for Provincial campgrounds by the Province of Alberta and Alberta Health Services

These recommendations include:

  • Only up to 50% capacity, every other site is closed
  • Only one unit per site, & you are confined to your site, no visiting other campers in other sites.
  • No group camping, single site usage no tenting permitted.
  • No out of province campers.
  • No Playgrounds opened, basketball, volleyball or tetherball
  • No benches, picnic shelters to be used, or change rooms at Camp Lake.
  • No public showers will be opened.
  • One person at a time allowed into concession or those belonging to the same family.
  • Boat launch is open but only people with a reserved site and from the same family home allowed into the boat.
  • Beach is closed, docks will be removed and relocated, buoys will remain out of the water.
  • Gates locked at night.
  • Water taps outside people must supply their own hoses to fill their tanks.
  • Day use area will remain closed until further notice.
  • Please provide your own toilet paper for the public outhouses.

The health and safety of our residents, visitors, staff, and contractors is our top priority. These measures are in line with Provincial recommendations to practice physical distancing.

The complete rules and regulations for the campgrounds are still being developed by the Province and will be posted as soon as they are released, which will impact County campgrounds also.

Black Bear Sighting

In early May 2014, a black bear was sighted on the east side of Camp Lake, east of Viking.  The bear did not enter the campsite.

Alberta Fish & Wildlife have been on-site, have assessed the situation, and believes there is a low risk that the bear will return to the area.

As with any other outdoor camping activity, campers should always remain diligent and take the necessary precautions to stay safe amongst naturally-occurring wildlife.

Keep your campsite clean and remove garbage from your campsite promptly.

Pets should always be kept on a leash, and small children should be accompanied by an adult around the campground.

To familiarize yourself with bear activity and safety tips, check out the following links.
