Though spring break might be a bit chilly in Alberta, it’s still a great time to spend a week out in the wilderness taking in all that nature has to offer. Visit any of the parks in Alberta, including Banff National Park, Lake Louise and Kananaskis.
Before you head out, be sure to call our RV service department at Woody’s RV to schedule an appointment to have your RV checked out before you leave. If you don’t have an RV yet, but think spending a week or more away from it all sounds like the ultimate vacation, stop by our showroom to walk through the many floor plans we have available.
Banff National Park
The Canadian Pacific Railway found a cave and hot spring in 1883; and from there, Banff National Park, Canada’s first national park and only the third in the world. Banff National Park covers 6,641 square kilometers and features mountains, valleys, forests, glaciers, rivers and meadows. Enjoy the cave and basin, and the museum while you are visiting. Nearby sites include Kootenay National Park, Glacier National Park, the Bar U Ranch National Historic Site, the Canadian Rockies Hot Springs and more.
Lake Louise is part of Banff National Park; and this glacier-fed lake is surrounded by high peaks that reflect in the turquoise waters. Take the hiking trails to the Lake Agnes Tea House for some great views. During the winter, the lake is a skating rink; and during the warm months, take your canoe out. And, if you love to ski be sure to have your RV ready for winter camping as the ski resort features a wildlife interpretive center at the top of a gondola. Lake Louise covers 222 acres and is at 5,249 feet.
West of Calgary, in the foot of the Canadian Rockies, you’ll find Kananaskis, a park that covers 1,626 miles. You can access this series of parks via Highway 40, Highway 66 or Highway 68. The University of Calgary has an ecological and environmental research station nearby. Enjoy camping, golf, skiing, horse trails, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, hunting, backpacking, fishing and scrambling.
