Camping in the Foothills
Camping in the Bragg Creek area is a wonderful and exciting experience. The Elbow River valley is just down the road from the Bragg Creek hamlet, where you can stock up on supplies, dine out or escape from unexpected rainy weather!
From Bragg Creek, take highway 66 west. Here you’ll find aspen parkland, subalpine forest and then the stunning views of the high alpine. Come for a picnic, a night or two, or a whole week of the best air you can breathe!
Note: don’t forget to minimize your impact on the environment by packing out all your garbage, controlling campfires and staying on trails. This is bear country so take proper precautions. Find a handy list of things to take here.
