Recreation: The TGCA Campground

Campground information & booking

Online bookings for 2024 to open Mar. 6 at 9 am

Are you a member? The TGCA has 5 camp sites in the Water Valley area and they’re available to members only. Get the clan together and have some laughs in the Albertan foothills this season. 

The TGCA campground is available May 10 – October 7 this year. 

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 now 5 sites available at the campground, and you can rent 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. 

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.
