Without question Alberta has some of the most beautiful parks in the entire world and worthy of any RVing or camping adventure. In fact the Alberta parks system covers 27,678 square kilometres. Alberta parks preserve important ecological areas and provide places where people can enjoy and learn about Alberta’s natural heritage.
Five of Canada’s National Parks (Banff, Elk Island, Jasper, Waterton Lakes and Wood Buffalo), are managed by Parks Canada while 69 provincial parks are managed by the province of Alberta.
For a list of Alberta’s 69 provincial parks, 33 wildland provincial parks, 248 provincial recreation areas, 16 ecological reserves, 3 wilderness areas, 149 natural areas and Alberta’s heritage rangeland please follow the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Alberta_provincial_parks
Special permits may be required for fishing and back country hiking and always keep in mind that Alberta parks are teaming with wildlife and wildlife is just that – wild!
For the most part roads are good in all of Alberta’s parks and pulling a tent trailer, a travel trailer, a fifth wheel or a toy hauler shouldn’t present any additional challenges. That said some stalls may have length limitations.
Before heading out to your preferred destination, keep in mind that some parks have a limited number of travel trailer and fifth wheel stalls so a reservation is advised.

May your time spent in the beautiful Canadian outdoors bring you memories that you cherish for the rest of your life!
