Number of Sites: 5
This site is an excellent representative of stream-side camping in the Rockies. Campsites are spread out among the level terraces of an open pine forest and allow for some privacy. A number of other spots, without facilities are suitable for large trailers or overflow camping. The transparent waters of the Alberta and Palliser rivers merge here and compliment other campsite views. Special natural features are nearby: (1) cascades near the Albert River bridge, 1 km north, (2) Palliser Falls and canyon (watch footing), a short distance from km 46 on the Palliser Forest Service Road. The recreation site serves as a good base for driving, exploring and hiking in the upper valleys of the Albert and Palliser Rivers. Due to a bridge washout, the roads past the campsite are not accessible.
