Campground Description

Rochon Sands Provincial Park is one of the older provincial parks in Alberta that has a wonderfully natural feeling. The park is full of treed sited, picnic tables, and fire pits, and it is very close to the lake. It is the perfect place to make memories with your family and friends! We are open the week of May Long until Thanksgiving Weekend. We only take reservations for the week of May Long to Labour Day Weekend (Sept Long).  Please note, tenters MUST book in the walk-in tent sites (where you park and where you will camp is approximately 30s from each other).  This MUST be followed.  There are high demands for RV sites over tent sites and RVs cannot fit in tent sites.  If you have questions, please call the office.

For staying in our campground full payment is required at the time of reservation. Please look at our Cancellation and Refund Policy. 

Campers who are tenting please note that you must book in a tent site and not an RV site.  This is due to the demand for RV sites for RVs, especially in the high season on weekends.  RVs cannot fit in tent sites; therefore, tents must be in tent sites.  Walk-In only means the vehicle is not right on the site but the parking is very close (approximately 30s from where the parking is and where the site is).  Please follow this rule for campers whose tent may be moved to a tent site if there are tent sites available.  If you have any questions, please make inquiries through the office.

The Summer Village of Rochon Sands has the operating lease at Rochon Sands Provincial Park and the Summer Village follows the Regulations of the Alberta Parks (, unless noted. 

We believe in buying local and burning local firewood in our provincial park to help prevent the spread of disease and pests. We strongly urge campers that if they bring their own firewood, it is local to the area. We also have firewood we have sourced for purchase through the Park Office and the Security Truck in the evenings. Please come with water in your trailer because our well cannot keep up anymore when many sources are pulling on it.

If a camper is an avid boater, please use our boat launch but boats must be taken out when they are not in use since there is no room to moor boats at the boat launch. You can anchor outside of the swimming area and wade in. 

Using the Day-Use as a camper or just visiting, we ask visitors (not campers) for a small donation of $1/person/day to help maintain the Day-Use area. Please make sure to pick up after yourself and leave the Day-Use area in good shape so others can enjoy it too. 

The gates are not closed in the provincial park during the season since it is a fire hazard. 

We do ask visitors to leave quietly at 11 pm. Generators are permitted to be used and must be turned off from 11 pm to 7 am (unless for a medical reason and has been discussed prior with the park office staff). Generators must not run when no one is on the site and please be courteous to your fellow campers around you. 

Make sure that your campsite is cleaned up before your leave (garbage, waste, the firepit is not full of garbage, etc) or the person registered to the site will be charged a $250 clean-up fee. 

Free wifi is available at the park office. Please ask the Park Office Staff for the password if you wish to use it.

Pet are permitted in the provincial park. All pets must be leashed at all times, cleaned up after, not a nuisance, and cannot be left alone at the campsite. They are permitted at the beach, as long as they are leashed at all times, are cleaned up after and not bothering others. Failing to do so may lead to eviction from the campsite and a possible fine. If you wish to amend your reservation after you have completed it, there will be a $5 ammendment fee for each time your need to make changes. If you require a late-check out there will be a late-check-out fee of one night stay and must be cleared with Park Staff.
