The Carstairs Municipal Campground, known as "The People Friendly Place," is located on the east edge of Carstairs, at the corner of Centre Street and Highway 2A. The campground, located temptingly near the 18-hole Carstairs Golf Course, is open from May 1st to October 31st. A stay in our campground can bring you in contact with people from across Canada, Europe and the United States.
The new Campground Registration Booth was built in 2006, with widespread community support, and through the efforts of the Friends of Remembering the Carstairs Elevator (FORCE).
Stop in and check out the many artifacts preserved from the last remaining grain elevator in Carstairs before it was dismantled.
There are 28 power hookups, 15A and 30A. Washrooms are wheelchair accessible. Great fun for the family with playground and horseshoe pits. Firewood is free and fire pits are available at each site. A great spot for day use and picnics or for a weekend relaxing in the shade.
