Hired 2 trapper tents for our family group if 10 for a couple of nights. Great welcome,tents well spaced (just as well with 2 very small youngsters who made far too much noise on occasions), great space for games, main toilet and washrooms in excellent condition - remote toilets ......... enough said !!!

We all had a great time - cannot wait to visit again.

Room Tip: Trapper tents - excellent. Perhaps next time we will try a teepee.

Booking was a breeze
Check in was seamless
Included were kerosene heater and propane lantern which were so appreciated
Washrooms were spotless, sites were large, private, and impeccably kept!
Green space for playing, volleyball and badminton nets were also available
The location of the property in Kananaskis was amazing and perfect for getting to the many hiking trails in the area.
Tipis and hunter's cabins were all amazing and the fun of staying in a tipi was bar none :)

After getting soaked the night before while tenting in Bow Valley, I was looking for a break. I thought we'd try Sundance Lodges for a night. Glad we did! The staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome. I rented a trapper's cabin for the night and my dogs were welcome too (for a nominal charge). The cabin was spacious having 4 single beds (2 pushed together to make a larger bed). It included a heater and I was given a lantern as well. The best part of the cabin was the covered picnic table area. Weather in the mountains is sometimes unpredictable and we stayed dry. There were lots of families enjoying their stay with some rowdy kids during the day but "quiet time" was observed. As far as improvements - there were a few minor things like no bench in the showers (which were included in the price), low on toilet paper, but those are all easy fixes. One suggestion for the future is to keep a few of the camping spots "tenter friendly"- meaning grass and not gravel. It was a little close to Hwy 40, so a bit of traffic noise at night, but no trains (thank goodness!) I loved how much space there was between the sites and clean everything was. I'd stay again for sure!

Not a dream trip when you stay at this place. It's a complete nightmare. Constant screaming at the top of their lungs (kids) and running amuck with absolutely no parental supervision. Dogs off leashes running through our campsite. People running clear through our site to get to another one. Air horns going off at two sites adjacent to us. Just rude. LOUD music at all times of the day and night. Management does NOT manage this place well at all. They have a generator running full time and cannot hear what is going on in the campground. The employees speed around the campground on that little four-wheeled quad and don't check anything out. So don't know why they even do rounds. That thing is so loud, they wouldn't be able to hear a thing anyway. We will NEVER return. Gong show at its best.

I've been bringing my sons here for an annual camping trip for 6 years. With young children, I appreciate that guests are reminded of the 10:30 quiet time when they find they've lost track of the hour. I think this is especially important to note for people considering this destination because if you like to stay up late enjoying some laughs around a campfire with friends, then you may find yourself disappointed here.

It's also worth knowing that this is not a full-service, 4 star campground. I think it's quite typical of a campground in the Canadian Rockies. Whether you describe it as "rustic" or "run down" probably depends on your expectations.

At Sundance Lodges, there is one central bathroom with running water and showers. Each bathroom has three toilets and three showers. The facility is cleaned daily. The showers are free - which is terrific. I love not having to shower while wondering when my water will run out. This is also the only place in the campground to get potable water. There are outhouses in a few other spots in the campground.

We've stayed here in our tent, and we've also rented a tipi and a trapper tent. The heater is awesome, but it's kerosene. Folks sensitive to the smell might find it off-putting. The tipis leak when it rains, but not enough to ruin your day, so long as you are prepared. This past weekend we were there and it rained all Saturday. We woke up with some wet things. No big deal.

Most of the campsites are well spaced out. Some are close together and are well suited to families camping together. The highway is close which is a drag, but it tends to quiet down in the evening. The river is also close, which is awesome. If you can arrange to get a site further from the highway and closer to the river, you'll be a happy camper.

The staff here has always been friendly to us. I've never run into the angry owner that other folks report. I've also never arrived late. Maybe those things are related.

The tipis and especially the trappers tents are priced a little high for what you get. But, if you don't have a tent, don't like tents, or want to try something different, then they are still worth considering.

If you are visiting the Rockies from abroad and don't have camping experience, remember that these accommodations are very basic. You'll need to bring good sleeping bags, camp-friendly food, something to keep your food cold, something to cook your food, and some way to clean up after you're done. If you're in a tipi, then waterproof storage and a tarp (for around the picnic table/campfire) are good things.

I do wish that they had some safe place to wash dishes. You never know what the person who stayed there before you may have thrown into the bushes with their dishwater.
