Cadomin,Alberta

April 25, 2011

Cadomin is a great camping spot. You are in a valley with rugged mountains all around. Cadomin is located about 50km south of Hinton on hwy40. The population is now only 64, but was once a booming coal community,in the early 1900’s the population was 1,700, in 1952  the mine shut down and many people moved away. Cadomin still has a general store that carries your basic camping needs, a small restaurant is also available at the store. Cadomin does not have a gas station, but does sell propane, you would need to get gas in either Hinton,Edson or Robb, if you are going quading you will need to haul gas.

The area around Cadomin is well known for it’s quading trails, they go for mile so you can expect to see lots of ATV’s driving around. When visiting this area you need to go the the caves, the caves are open from May 1 to Aug 31. The caves are closed during the bats hibernation period, and also have been closed due to a disease that is transfered from tourist activity. The bat popuation of these caves has dropped significantly. You will need some good hiking shoes as it is quite a steep climb to the entrance of the caves, also a bright light is essential. If you have not been to this area before you can get a map at the general store in Cadomin or arrange for a tour guide.

Watson Creek Provincial Recreation Area just outside of Cadomin is a nice quiet place to camp, there are about 38 sites available. The sites are well treed with good space between sites.Power is not available and water pumps are thru out the campground,  wood is available for campground use only, it cannot be removed,washroom are also available, these sites are pay on your honor and run about $10.00/night.

Whitehorse Creek Provincial Recreation Area has basic camping facilities with 26 sites,non flush bathroom facilities, wood is available. This site also provides access to the unmaintained hiking/equestrian trail to Miette Hotsprings in Jasper National Park. If you are planning to travel overnight into Jasper, a permit from the Jasper trails office is required. These site run about $10.00/night and $2.00/night/horse.

This is beautiful country to camp and get the feel of the great outdoors. There are many other areas to camp, some people just park on the side of the road somewhere.

    hello I am looking into going camping at cadomin caves for august long, and I cannot seem to find a map or phone number to make reservations. Can you help me out?

    • Carol says:

      Hi Rocknrob,

      Thanks for the request. There is not any camping right at the caves. The Whitehorse campground or Watson creek campground are probably the closest camping spots to the caves. These sites are first come first serve with pump water and outhouse style washrooms. Although you can pretty much set up camp any place you find a good site if you do not need any services.

      From Edmonton Hwy 16 west to Hinton, go through Hinton and watch for Hwy 40 on your left hand side, turn left. Follow hwy 40 for about 50km, you will come to a T intersection, turn right to go into the town of Cadomin and towards the caves and the Whitehorse campground or turn left and Watson Creek will be on the left side of the road. There is a general store as you drive into Cadomin that are really helpful. Be sure to check if the caves are open as not to be disappointed. The number for the motel is 780-692-3663 they should be able to help you with most of your questions.

      Hope this information is helpful.

      Happy Glamping

    Are there any guides for hire to take newbies caving?

    • Carol says:

      Hi Della,

      There are tours of the caves when they are open and they can be arranged at the general store. An update as of July 12 2011 states that the caves are still temporarily closed due to white-nose syndrome that affect the bat population so the caves are only open to researchers at the moment. Calling ahead is wise if caving is your main reason to visit Cadomin.
      Hope this info helps.

      Happy Glamping,

      Hi Kathy,

  • Donna says:

    Hello, I am wondering if I can register for the Coal Branch Club. I was not born in Cadomin, but spent many summers camping and visiting in that area in the early 80’s. This was before the Cheviot mining started, and prior to the quads and bikes. Would I be able to participate in future long weekend reunion activities even though I was not born in the area?

    • Carol says:

      Hi Donna,
      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I have been out glamping and enjoying our finally nice weather. You can register to be member of the Coal Branch Club. The cost is $5.00 for a regular membership or $2.00 for seniors. You can contact Lois Fleck at 780-454-1648 or Agnes Brennen at 780-455-0114, Agnes is in charge of publicity. I did speak with her and any one can join.

      I hope this information is helpful,

    Hello,
    Next june we will be cycling in the area. Maybe you can tell us if they sell groceries in the general store.
    Thanks
    Jim, Rotterdam, Netherlands

    • admin says:

      Hi Jim,
      The general store has a little bit of everything, but not a lot of any one thing. You can get your basic camping supplies at the store like eggs, bread, milk etc. and general supplies, rope, matches,propane etc. but if you are looking for fresh meat and veg or major camping supplies you would have to go into Hinton about 50kilometers away about a 30 min drive by car. The General store also has a small restaurant “The Hole in the Wall” that has a pretty good breakfast and daily special. It also has a small selection beer, wine and spirits if you are so inclined.
      I hope you enjoy your trip in this spectacular part of Alberta. I would love to hear about your experience.
      Take care and Happy Cycling!

  • Bob McGonigal says:

    Hello. I’m in Windsor, Ontario and have a son and daughter and their families who live in Edmonton. My son is talking about going to Cadomin this summer for a camping trip. I have a 5th wheel and my son has a straight trailer. My daughter might have a trailer by then. We’ll be dry camping and are self sufficient but the problem will be getting fresh water and perhaps a dump station.Are there any facilities to get water and to dump in Cadomin or the area or do we have to go elsewhere for that? Thank you. Bob

    • admin says:

      Hi Bob, There is a dumping station in Cadomin and you can get fresh water right at the Fire station. I have never dumped my trailer there so you can just stop at the store and they can let you know where it is located,(they definately have one). I usually dump in Hinton, but then again it depends on how long you plan to camp there and how often you have to dump. Watson Creek campground has some nice sites but can be a little tricky to manouver, I have a 36′ motorhome and got in there just fine, I did do a drive through first. Whitehorse campground doesn’t have as many sites and is a staging area for people with horses, the sites are not all that big, but you can pretty much camp where you want to, find a field and pull in.

      Hope you enjoy your trip!!!
      Happy Glamping,

    Carol,
    Well that was fast and I thank you very much for the info. I’m sure we will be parked some place where there are no conveniences.

  • Bob McGonigal says:

    Hello again. My son is visiting us here and when I asked him about going to Cadomin he said that he has heard that ATVs have been banned from the area. Just wondering if this is correct? Thanks again. Bob

    • admin says:

      Hi Bob,
      There isn’t a ban on ATV’s but there are certain trails that are off limits to ATV’s due to the amount of equestrian traffic on them, and of course the bylaws are always in effect. The General Store in Cadomin would be able to tell you which areas are off limits and supply a map of different trails in the area.

    I was just wondering, do you know if the caves are still closed down?

    • admin says:

      Hi Desiree, As far as I know the caves are still closed. We will be following the closure during the summer months, if they open the caves I will have a post relaying that information. There is alot of hiking in the area.

  • Reed says:

    Hello,

    I was wondering if the Cadomin cave will be open for hiking/exploring for the 2012 season or if it is still closed due to the white nose syndrome effecting the bats (if it’s still a concern)?

    Thanks

    • admin says:

      Hi Reed,
      The caves are still closed, there are alot of other options for hiking in the area. I will be following the situation with the caves and put a post up if they open during the 2012 season.

      Happy Glamping,

  • Sarah says:

    Hey there,

    I know that the caves are closed. I was wondering if the Alberta Fire Ban is including Cadomin for this up coming long weekend

    • admin says:

      Hi Sarah, In wildland provincial parks, all backcountry fires are prohibited, so no open fires, there must be a fire pit at your site. In wildland parks with auto-accessible staging areas/campgrounds, fires are permitted in designated fire receptacles (metal fire pits) only. That is as of May 16th. You may want to double check before you leave for any changes at albertaparks.ca

      Hope the weather cooperates for you,

  • Clint says:

    Hi Carol,

    Was out to Cadomin for the first time last year (wow, Beautiful!!), We camped just before town on the left and then hauled ATV’s to Ruby Falls trails.
    This year looking to go again but hoped to camp and be able to ride ATV’s right from Camp. Is this possible from the same location or is there another location? Maybe Watson Creek area? Taking some nicer RV’s so not really wanting to beat them down to much back roads.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Clint

    • admin says:

      Hi Clint, Yeah, Cadomin is pretty spectacular. You can pretty much camp anywhere in that area, you just need to be aware of the weather, some fields get pretty muddy if the weather turns wet, I have seen some 5th wheels get pretty stuck. Watson Creek is a nice camp site, some sites are quite small, but you can go ATVing from there. When I went I also had a jeep and scoped the campground fro a decent size site, I fit my 35ft motorhome in, tight but it fit. Another good place we had a great time at is by the Greg cabin. Go South on highway 40 to Greg Cabin road (about 15km). Turn west before you cross the bridge. Great riding there. Also if you go down highway 40 all the way, you will run into the town, carry on through the town, be careful the cheviot mine is operating there full time now, carry on and you will come to a place called mountain park, its an old mining town there is nothing there but you can’t miss it. There are all kinds of trails on the east side, they go for a long way so bring a gps and I would suggest a map. its a long trip, but trust me its completely worth it. If you keep going past mountain park you will come to the Cardinal divide( High Divide), this is where all the rivers in Canada either go east or west. It is a long rocky climb so careful, keep going and just look on either side of the road, you are now about 5-6 km (in some places anyway) from jasper park, there are trails everywhere.The riding is awesome, the scenery even better. Here are a list of all the streams in the area, If you like to camp near water.
      ■Luscar Creek (2.4km) ■Whitehorse Creek (6.1km) ■Cadomin Creek (6.1km) ■Drummond Creek (6.6km) ■Prospect Creek (8.3km) ■Watson Creek (8.7km) ■Harlequin Creek (10.6km) ■Berry’s Creek (11.3km) ■Little MacKenzie Creek (12.4km) ■Trapper Creek (12.4km) ■Thornton Creek (12.8km) ■Cheviot Creek (12.8km) ■MacKenzie Creek (13.8km) ■Sphinx Creek (15.1km) ■Deerlick Creek (15.6km) ■Meadow Creek (16.1km) ■Eunice Creek (16.1km) ■Wampus Creek (17.5km) ■Mary Gregg Creek (18.6km) ■Poachers Creek (18.6km) ■Rainbow Creek (19.5km) ■Mercoal Creek (19.8km) ■Beaverdam Creek (21.2km) ■Alpland Creek (21.3km) ■Thompson Creek (21.9km) ■Slide Creek (21.9km) ■Drinnan Creek (22.2km) ■Toma Creek (22.2km) ■Climax Creek (22.2km) ■Blackface Creek (22.3km) ■South Drinnan Creek (22.5km) ■Antler Creek (22.5km)

      Happy Glamping, (ATV)

  • Clint says:

    I think riding at Cardinal Divide and Mountain Park have be closed for awhile?
    Is there room to park and camp at Greg Cabin Road?

    Thanks Again

    • admin says:

      Hi Clint, I have not been down that way for a while. I do know the original cabin is still that the site and they have added a new cabin with sites available, you would have to phone and see if there are any sites left or what is in the near vicinity. We have camped at the cabin and also found some spots near by, you can pretty much camp where you find a suitable spot, provided you don’t want picinic tables, wood and outdoor bathroom facilities.
      How to Get There: When travelling west from Edmonton, turn left (south) onto Highway 40, approximately 4 kilometres past the town of Hinton. Follow Highway 40 south just over 20 kilometres until the Gregg River Road (and Gregg River) is encountered on the left side of the Highway. Turn left onto this road and follow it for 7.4 kilometres until the turn-off to the Gregg Cabin Recreation Area is found on the right side of the road. The Gregg River Road is an active logging/hauling road, and is normally accessible by 2-wheel drive. Drive with extreme caution, Last time I was there we took our truck and camper with no problem.
      Fee: This campground can is normally booked as a group campground on the weekends (by reservation only) – the cost is $100 per night. If the camp is not booked as a group campground individual campsite can be reserved. There is a $10/night fee per unit (a unit is a ten or a RV)

      Appropriate Use: The Gregg Cabin Recreation Area is located near the Gregg River, which has good fishing for rainbow trout, bull trout, eastern brook trout and whitefish (check local regulations for limits and restrictions). The Pine Management Trail starts from the Gregg Cabin Recreation Area and is popular for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and All Terrain Vehicles (quads). The Gregg Cabin also makes a good starting or ending point for hiking the Bighorn Trail. The Picnic Shelter has a wood stove, good for heating up food, or just warming up. There are also 5 picnic tables on this site both inside and outside of the Picnic Shelter for day use.

      Reservations: Reservations are available . Reservations can be made by phoning the campground maintenance contractor “Fox Creek Development Association”. They can be reached at 780-865-2154, or by e-mail at foxsk@telusplanet.net. There is a reservation fee of $6/night and reservations must be made 3 days in advance (e.g. by Wednesday for a Friday night reservation). Un-reserved sites will be on a first come, first served basis. If reserved as a group site, the first night fee of $100 is non-fundable if cancelled.

      Facilities: There are 11 sites at the cabin,wood bin, garbage, picinic shelter, 1 toilet,potable water and close to the river.

      Hope this helps,
      Happy Glamping

    All these comments have really helped out! I’m planning to go to Cadomin this coming long weekend! Just a general question though. Is there any type of Public Phone in Cadomin?

    • admin says:

      Hi Tyler or Steve, I’m glad you got some useful information, Cadomin is really beautiful. There is a pay phone at the general store and also at the legion. Enjoy your trip.

  • Heather says:

    We have never been to this area. We are looking for some great quading. Are the trails easy to find? We have gone to other areas to quad and have difficulty finding many trails. Any info you could provide would be great. We are also camping with a 32 foot trailer. Sounds like the best thing is to just pull in anywhere? or would you suggest a campground?

    • admin says:

      Hi Heather, You can just pull in anywhere, but be sure to check the weather some sites at the side of the road look nice but if it rains you could have a problem getting out. The weather can change very rapidly, one year we had snow in the morning, got a major sunburn in the afternoon, and it snowed again that afternoon, the wind is also an issue so be well sheltered. All in all I would suggest a campsite and take the quads for a tour and maybe find a great place for the next time you visit. Your best bet for trails is to stop in at the general store and talk to the locals and get a map, they have been doing alot of mining up there so the trails can change often. Enjoy your trip, don’t forget your camera and bear bells/spray.

      Happy Glamping

    wanting to visit cadomin for the first time carol with trailer and one quad with my wife.please tell me where we should go for our fist trip to camp and quad and maybe do some fishing the week of july 3-8th.
    thanks in advance paul

    • admin says:

      Hi Paul, Are you going with a pull trailer? If so you do have a lot of options, unhook your trailer and go for a drive and you will find some remote and beautiful campsites. Should you not wish to do that, it is a little bit of work, I would suggest Watson Creek campground is well treed with water pumps available and wood is also available. If this is your first time I would suggest a campground and tour around with your quads, the weather in Cadomin can change at the drop of a hat, you don’t want to get stuck in muddy field.Look for your next camping experience in Cadomin. Make sure to bring bear bells/spray and of course your camera. Hope you enjoy your trip.
      P.S If Watson Creek is full there is another campsite up the road on the left hand side (my opinion, not as nice).
      Happy Glamping,
      Carol

        yes carol with a pull trailer,as far as quading goes not looking for mud but scenic which i understand there is lots up there,thanks for your response.

  • Hal says:

    Hi, I would like to know where to find info on some easy jeep/truck trails that arent too hard but can get us to some really picturesque spots for the end of september. Thanks!

    • admin says:

      Hi Hal,
      I’m not sure about truck/jeep trails, you would be wise to call, you could try to call the motel 780-692-3663 and ask if you can take jeep/truck on some quad trails. I do know that you can drive up to the Cardinal divide, this is where all the rivers in Canada either travel west to the Pacific or east to Hudson Bay. You can drive to a staging area and take a hike up to the divide, you can see for miles, it is quite spectacular. On the way up be sure to stop at Little Mountain Cemetery, there is alot of history at this location. From Highway 16 head South on Highway 40, Travel 47.8 kilometres south,Turn right on Range Road 234A,Travel through Cadomin and continue onto Range Road 235A,Follow signs to the mountain park cemetery which is 8 kilometres beyond Cadomin on the left. Continue on to the Cardinal Divide. I hope this helps you out.

    Hi, we have a family member who was just there yesterday and overnight last night quading with two others, and we haven’t heard anything from them today. They were supposed to return to the Edmonton area around five and it is now 8:30- I am wondering if anyone has heard of anything going on in the area…any reason they might not be back yet?! James, Ed and Peter are their names.

    Thank you.

      Hi Natasha,I haven’t heard anything if you haven’t heard fom your boys after 24 hours, contact parkscanada.ca, they will have the information you would need and what steps to take. I hope they get home safely.

  • Marlene says:

    We are looking to camp in Cadomin area the last week of July, 2013. Where can we find information on horseback camping, trails, etc.? We are totally self-sufficient as far as camping is concerned…just need a spot that allows horses and campers. We would really like to have a map of the area, and, if possible, talk to others who have recently ridden in the area.

    • admin says:

      Hi Marlene, If you google” trails in Cadomin”or “equestrian trails” there are some good maps available and they may have maps at the store in town.There are alot of trials to choose from, Cadomin to Myette hot springs is a popular one, but you would have to do your homework as to how rugged this trail is. I do know the Whitehorse Creek campground has a staging area for horses and room for campers and tents. There are 26 unserviced sites,tables available at site,free firewood, pump water, pit toilets and a fenced area for horses. You can also call 780-865-2154 to find out more information about maps etc. Also there is a tourist center in Hinton that would have maps of the area. I don’t know anyone who has personally ridden in the area so lets hope we get some comments from readers,
      I hope your trip goes as planned and you have a great time, it is beautiful country.

      Happy Glamping,
      Carol

      • Marlene says:

        Hi, Carol. I really appreciate you taking time to answer my questions. Can you tell me about the roads in the area…where pavement ends and gravel starts, etc. How many km of gravel and how well the road is kept up. We haven’t been on Hwy 40 south of Hinton so don’t know what to expect. How does the campsite at Gregg Cabin Campground compare with the one at Whitehorse Creek? Which is better for horseback riding? We’re not planning any overnight trail camping, just day rides from the campsite. Also, rugged trails don’t worry us but bog does; if I NEVER see bog again like we’ve found around Kakwa Lake, it will suit me fine! Anyone who can share any information or insight on the area or trails will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

        • admin says:

          Hi Marlene, Glad to help. The Gregg Cabin has recently been rebuilt, the original cabin is still there, but a new building has been put on that site. The last time I looked into going to the cabin it was being booked by groups, ATV’ers, weddings etc., they book quite far in advance, like January is already fully booked for the season. I believe there are about 11 sites and about $100.00 a nite for all sites, this was a few years back now so prices may have gone up since then. So I would say your best bet is Whitehorse Creek. You can camp pretty much any where in that area, if you are self sufficent, find a spot and pull in. You will need to watch out for big groups of ATV riders, Cadomin is very popular for quading. Also be aware of the weather because it can change drastically in a very short time. I have had scorching hot sun, 10 minutes later a down pour and woke up to snow and a frozen BBQ.
          Hwy 40 is paved all the way to the Luscar mine site,it’s a good hwy, there is gravel from there to Cadomin,but it is a well maintained road but does get slick when it’s wet. I have taken a 36ft. motorhome on that road without any issues.
          I hope this helps you out, I would love to hear about your adventure.

          Happy Glamping

    Hi! My family and I are staying at strawberry creek cottage for my brothers 30th this next weekend (March 15-17). What is your opinion on quadding in cadomin during our stay? Do the trails get pretty mucky in the winter/spring or should it be ok?

    Thanks!

    • admin says:

      Hi Jaclyn, Sounds like fun. Quadding in Cadomin can be pretty dirty at any time of the year, it would all depend on how far back in the bush you go. The open areas will no doubt be pretty mucky, but if you can get in the trees where the sun isn’t reaching yet you may be alright.Not really much help but prepare for the worst and anything better will be a bonus!!! Hope you have a great time regardless of the weather and the mud.

      Happy Glamping,

  • German Polak says:

    Some people vacation in permanent camps with cabins and other facilities (such as hunting camps or children’s summer camps), but a stay at such a camp is usually not considered camping. The term camping (or camping out) may also be applied to those who live outdoors, out of necessity (as in the case of the homeless), or for people waiting overnight in queues.:

      Hi German Polak, In our part of the world, camping is enjoying the great outdoors wheather it be in a tent, camper or trailer, we have just put a little glamor in the outdoor experience. The weather maybe unforgiving at times so it is nice to be prepared with a few luxuries from home to make your experience one not soon to be forgotten.

  • Marlene says:

    Hi, Carol. We drove to Whitehorse Creek Campground just to see the area and can’t wait to go back with our horses later this month. Do you know if there is a way to ride from Whitehorse Creek Campground to Prospect Creek Kiosk where there is another riding trail into the mountains? We got a map of the area which shows several trails in each area but it seemed like the access between the two sites was restricted to coal mine traffic. Another area showing riding trails is further south at the Cardinal Divide but again, no access road shown. We don’t want to drive to any of these sites because once we are set up, we will be on horseback only. Thanks for your help.

      The scenery around Cadomin is pretty spectacular. I’m not sure if there is access between the two sites due to all of the development in the area. I think your best bet would be to ask at the General store. If you are setting up camp at Whitehorse it would be quite a long ride to the divide, but there used to be a trail from Whitehorse to Miette, but again that was a few years back.
      I hope you enjoy your trip and would love to hear about it.

      Happy Glamping

    Hi Carol,

    Not much of a camping question as I have been to Cadomin camping/quading often & I look forward to it every time; however, this time when we go in August I will need to have internet connection. I have a Telus mobile stick when I’m on the road. Do you know if there is a tower that the mobile stick would work off? or do you know if there is cellular service in Cadomin?
    Thanks very much

      Hi Michelle,
      There are not alot of hotspots around Cadomin, it’s kind of a hit and a miss. My Telus stick would work in certain places, but you have to find those places. I never tried it when I was in town because I didn’t have laptop handy at the time. You could always ask at the store, they would know if there are any towers around. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. Have a great time!!

      Happy Glamping,

    Hey! I am just wondering if it is pretty easy to find quad trails down there. In addition, if you know of any good areas down there to quad. Thank you!

      Hi Leah, You bet, there are quad trails all other the place. Well if you gave me a quad and turn me around three times that is the way to go, the scenery and wildlife in that area is fantasic. Some trails will be muddier than others but you could always stop at the general store and ask for their opinion. It really depends on how much rain they have had. Hope you have a great trip!!!

    Hey there, me and my kids and a couple of frends are coming up to cadomin the first week in August. I haven’t been there for about 10 years. Can we still dry camp on the east side of the gravel flats road? We’re going to bring the quads to tour around and see some of the history in the area. Is that sort of thing still allowed up in that area? Last time I was there I didn’t have a quad and it looked like there was a lot more to see. Should we bring fire wood or can we find dead fall in the bush to cut up and burn?

      Hi Jeff,I haven’t been up there for a few years, with the development going on with the Cardinal river project I would check with forestries in Hinton. The last time I was in Cadomin you could not get up to the top of the divide due to environment issues, also the caves were closed do to bats problems. So just to be sure I would either google some maps or you could call the store, they may have some information. Cadomin is spectacular country but with all big industry we are losing our amazing sceneries and chances to see albertas wildlife. I hope your trip goes as planned.

      Happy Glamping,

    Hello – We are looking to do some sheep hunting in Cadomin during the last two weeks of November. Is there any place that offers full-service RV hookups?
    Thanks

    • admin says:

      Hi Lindsey, Sheep hunting that sounds exciting! Unfortunately there are no full service sites.Power is available at some campgrounds and there are not alot of them. I haven’t been up that way for a while so my suggestion would be to google Travel Alberta, they would have a full list of campgrounds in the area and the services they offer. Hope this helps.Good luck with the hunt!!!

      Happy Glamping,
      Carol
