Love camping, but don’t like packing all the gear and setting up the tent? Well you’re in luck, as there are much easier and comfier ways to camp in Alberta.
Gaze up at the star-filled sky from the comfort of your cozy queen size bed. A vented skylight is just one of the perks of a yurt. Your own private wooden deck with covered barbecue and lounge chairs is another. The yurts at Pigeon Lake Provincial Park are insulated, round, canvas tent-like structures, furnished with beds, a couch, table and chairs. The kitchen is also stocked with all the utensils and dishes you’ll need to barbecue. Remember the ice cream, as there’s a fridge and freezer for keeping your perishables cool. How perfect is that?
For a more traditional experience, Bactrax makes camping in the Canadian Rockies simple with full-service custom camp gear rentals. Rent a tent with a car camping package and you’ll have everything you need for six people to enjoy the great outdoors, including sleeping bags, lantern, cooler, dishes, chairs, and a kettle and coffee press. Items can be rented individually as well. Add on delivery and even campground set up for a small fee.
