Campground Description

Spring Lake Campground provides an excellent nature camping experience with 62 back-in camping stalls. The forest setting provides good privacy within the sites. Located in a approximately 30 minutes Northwest of Hythe, Alberta. The park contains hiking trails of various lengths and is a short walk to Spring Lake. The lake is stocked with Rainbow and Brook Trout and the deep pools and clean clear water result in some large fish being caught. The day use area has an older semi-enclosed Gazebo with a wood cookstove that is suitable for family gatherings and events. Saddle Hills County was assigned the Crown Lease for Spring Lake Park in 2019, and have resumed the operation of the campground in September of that year. We have invested in the replacement of most of the old outhouses with mens/womens toilet buildings, new picnic tables and some new firepits. In late 2021, we built a new wood storage shed. For the 2022 season, we've added a new playground structure, we will be installing concrete pads in the boat launch, two additional toilet buildings, improvements to walking paths and a well water retention tank. Saddle Hills County remains committed to make improvements to the campground, including some electrified sites in 2023.

Playground removed

May 25, 2021by Anonymous
We love this campground and have taken our large family here many times. However it was quite disappointing to arrive for the long weekend and discover the playground had been removed. Also the peddle boat rentals were not available either. Hopefully there are plans to reinstate these amenities in the very near future! Otherwise the rest of the park and the host were both great!

We spent our first weekend in our new trailer at Spring Lake and the whole family loved it! The park's caretakers were very friendly and helpful and the park was very well kept. The lots are separated by lots of big trees; we enjoyed the privacy! We enjoyed walking to the fishing dock - but if you plan on fishing it's helpful to have a boat as the dock is always full. We will definitely be back!
