15 Campgrounds with Pools in Alberta: Plan a Splashing Good Time!

Stirling community pool

Updated April 18, 2024

Alberta isn’t really known for it’s outdoor pools. Our season is pretty short for them. Which makes Alberta campgrounds with a pool that much more special to find. We’ve scoured the internet and camping forums to create this list for you. In alphabetical order (because why not?), here are all the non-seasonal campground pools we know of!

Rates were current in April, 2024. We try to update this annually – if you find anything inaccurate please let us know!

  • Rates: $29-100/night

Aim for the Meinerz Loop with both playgrounds when staying at Aspen Crossing Campground. Enjoy the beach at Sunrise Lagoon on the other side of the tracks.
