Road Construction

Big Horn Campground Road construction and campground closure

Update as of September 28:

There will be road construction starting on October 2. This will claose the road and campground for a few days but the Bighorn will be open for Thanksgiving.


Update as of September 25:

Road construction is running a few weeks late. The road and Big Horn campground are still open. The campground will be open for the Thanksgiving weekend but the plan is to start work on the road after the weekend. The heavy truck traffic has left the road from the forestry trunk road in rough condition.  

This fall, Parks Canada is upgrading the road from the gates of the Ya Ha Tinda Ranch to the Ranch Yard.

Weather permitting; this construction work will make the road from the Ya Ha Tinda Gate to the Big Horn campground impassable from mid-September to mid-October. For this reason, the Big Horn campground will be closed. Visitors should plan to camp at the beautiful Eagle Creek campground during this time.

Horse Stall Priorty

Dear Campers and Friends of the Eastern Slopes,

We have recently received correspondence from concerned members regarding horse stall and high line stall camp sites being occupied by camping units without horses. We, the Friends of the Eastern Slopes Association, support and encourage multi use of all of our 6 campground areas. As a courtesy to the campers with horses we are asking to give priority for the stalled and high lined sites to people travelling with horses. If the campground is full and no other options exist then by all means non horse users are welcome to use stalled and high lined sites. We operate on a first come first served basis.

Thank-you for your co-operation,
