Recreation: The TGCA Campground

Campground information

Booking for the 2021 camping season will be open March 3 at 9 am

Are you a member? TGCA Campground is available to you! Get the clan together and have some laughs in the Albertan foothills this season.

The campground resulted from a partnership between the 58th Scouts (our designated scout group) and the community association in 1990, and the Scouts still use the area today for outings. It’s a great area for RVs and many people tent there too!

The TGCA Water Valley Campground is located 45 minutes NW of Calgary, and is the perfect place to host a reunion, party or just plain kick back and relax! Located near Winchell Lake.

There are 3 sites available at the campground, and you can rent 1, 2 or all 3. 

Weekends (Friday – Sunday) are reserved for 3 day bookings of either 1, 2 or all 3 sites, and single day bookings can be made on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, of either 1, 2 or 3 sites.

Your check-in time (time of day you get access to the site) is 3 pm on the first day and checkout is 2 pm on the last day of your booking.

If you’d like to rent the site for an extended period, please check the availability and contact the office to get a rental rate.

The camp sites are available for all TCGA members on a first come first serve basis, so book yours well in advance or you may be disappointed.

All renters must abide these rules and conditions, or risk the good standing of their TGCA membership.

The TGCA camp sites will be open to book on March 3 at 9 am.
Bookings for this year's camping will be available from May 7 until October 11.
