Pembina River Provincial Park is located about 100 km – 1- 1/2 hours west of Edmonton near the towering Pembina River gorge. The gorge, with cliffs as high as 62 metres, was created by meltwaters from the retreat of glaciers during the Wisconsin Age. The gorge offers an interesting view of these geological features.

This campsite offers 132 units, of these 65 are power sites. The upper sites are well spaced with trees dividing the sites and the lower sites closest to the water are side by side, parking lot style with grassy areas. Tables are provided, fire wood available at or near campsite for a fee and tap water is available. Showers are available, when we were there the showers were free, but there was talk of that changing, so bring coin if you plan to have a shower.


The river is great for tubing or any water toys, don’t forget your life jackets.
