Dinosaur Provincal Park has been recognized in an article by National Geographic for its winter camping services.
Most people consider going camping over the May long weekend, but with the recent warm weather it might be better to go earlier to beat the crowds.
"Well it is winter services so there is no water available or showerhouse, all the water lines have to be blown out for the winter," said Donna Martin with Dinosaur Provincal Parks. "The power is always on so you can plug in your unit and we clear the first few campsites of snow."
She added that not many visit in the winter but they do get small amounts of campers and scouts.
"There are a lot of provincal parks open year round and people should think about that," noted Martin. "In Southeastern Alberta there is nice weather in April. We've had half full campgrounds on Easter weekend because it is so beautiful and sunny so people want to get out camping."
"It's very easy and a quieter time," added Martin. "You'll see mule deer, you'll hear the coyotes howl, no bugs, and it's lovely evenings."
