**** ATTENTION ****


Hummingbird Staging/Campground &

Bighorn Campground are now CLOSED.

Due to extreme flooding both campgrounds are now CLOSED for ALL CAMPERS for the foreseeable future. Water is continuing to run through/across roadways restricting access. Significant damage has been reported for both these campgrounds and until the water subsides and we can get in them to assess the damage, they will remain closed. Once campgrounds are accessible they will likely remain closed until repairs have been made. 

Thank You for Understanding


Our construction crew worked tirelessly to get the campground completed for the long weekend and we are excited to show you all the work they have completed. Currently we are still leveling/spreading gravel in the 'Overflow' parking spot but the rest of the campground is open for use. 

Thank you for bearing with us!


In February 1994, Friends of the Eastern Slopes Association was incorporated as a not-for-profit society.  The group took on as their first project the Bighorn Campground located on the Parks Canada Ya Ha Tinda Ranch.  They negotiated with Parks Canada to take over as the stewards of the campground.  Over the intervening years, through positive, proactive volunteer efforts, Friends of the Eastern Slopes Association:

    • Has grown and consistently maintains a membership of over 1500 members/families
    • Have an on-going agreement with Parks Canada for the Bighorn Campground area
    • Were entrusted by Alberta Sustainable Resource Development and the Bighorn Backcountry Committee with the stewardship of the Hummingbird, Eagle Creek and Cutoff Forest Recreation areas
    • Have made a real reduction in regards to the impact on the environment from recreational horse users 


Friends of the Eastern Slopes would like to thank


for their financial support
which has given us the opportunity to do the many
upgrades and expansions at our campgrounds.

Their commitment to our forests make this all possible

We would like to send a huge Thank You to our generous Sponsors, Donators and attendees of our Annual General Meeting and Boot's & Blue Jean Event held at Timber River Station, April 30, 2022. The event was yet another success!

Without your kind love and support, this association would not be where it is today! Thank & Support your local small business
