** IMPORTANT NOTICE - ADDRESS CHANGE **
FOESA, Box 1441, Sundre, Alberta T0M 1X0
We are excited for the re-opening of the Bighorn Campground June 1st, 2023! But we would not have been able to make this possible without the generous volunteers who attended our Campground Clean Up on May 27th, 2023.
We had 55 people in attendance. 4 Skid Steers, 1 Tractor, 4 Dump Trailers, Gravel truck, Gravel Packer and various skid steers that worked steady for 5+ hours. We successfully cut and stacked dead fall, spread gravel throughout the campsite, tie-stalls and highlines and improved the firepits.
We want to enlighten everyone on the time and hard work that has gone into re-opening this campground so everyone can go back to enjoying it. Therefore we hope you all respect the guidelines set in place so that the campground can remain open.
According to Public Lands, the Panther Road, trails and campground are now open to OHVs. The trunk road is also open from south of Mountainaire to the Coal Camp Road and various spots from there to Highway 11. There will be enforcement for speed limits and alcohol use. More information is available on this year's Bighorn maps. Public Lands is making a new map on trails South of the Red Deer River available at Mountainaire Lodge.
Unfortunately someone has taken it upon themselves to put up signs prohibiting OHVs on the Panther Road and in the campground. These have been taken down. If you see a person putting up signs or doing anything that looks out of place, please take a picture and FOESA will send it to enforcement.
August 6, 2022 was another successful poker rally held at the Eagle Creek Campground with great weather and an impressive turnout with 165 registered riders. There was the 2nd annual chili cookoff which was won by Wanda Malka, door prizes and a fundraising auction. There were some beautiful custom prize buckles awarded throughout the evening. Thank you to all our sponsors and participants, you are what made our event the success it was!
