It's time to finish off those summer to-do lists. 

Here at Ayre & Oxford, one summer activity we love is camping. If you're looking for a campsite in Alberta, we've got you covered with our list of great campgrounds.  These campgrounds are conveniently close to our apartment buildings and offer washrooms, shower stalls, and picnic areas.

Elk Island National Park 

54401 Range Road 203, Fort Saskatchewan

Elk Island has it all. Enjoy the majestic wildlife like bison, deer, and elk. Pick from over 75 campsites, including walk-in tent sites, oTENTik cabins, and equipped campsites - where your tent, sleeping pads, camping chairs, and propane stove are provided for you. This fascinating national park is just 20 minutes from our Sherwood Park condos and about 30 minutes from Vegreville or Downtown Edmonton.

Discovery Wildlife Park

5400 42 Avenue, Innisfail

This wildlife park now offers 63 powered campsites just 30 minutes from our Red Deer apartments. Enjoy fishing in their fully-stocked pond, visit the animals, or if you don't feel like "roughing it" anymore, have breakfast or dinner delivered right to your campsite. Discovery Wildife Park has something for every type of camper -  30 and 50 amp sites, tenting sites with or without power, and cabins. Take part in an Evening Animal Experience tour to get up close and personal with the local wildlife. 

Miquelon Lake Provincial Park Campgrounds

Range Rd 205A, Kingman 

Get back to nature at this massive campground, just 45 minutes from our Southeast Edmonton apartment buildings.  Miquelon Lake has many exciting activities for campers, including hiking along nature trails, canoeing, picnics on the beach, and more! Unfortunately, if you feel the need to cool down, swimming is not recommended due to water quality. The campground includes 82 non-serviced sites and 191 powered sites.

Wabamun Lake Provincial Park Campground

Range Rd 35, Kapasiwin

Wabamun Lake Campground is a beautiful park less than an hour from our Edmonton apartments. Enjoy a quiet weekend here with 275 spacious, treed sites available. Nearby activities include canoeing and kayaking, golfing, bird watching, geocaching, or fishing. Feel like relaxing? Enjoy sun and sand on the lake's stunning beach.
