Frontier RV Park

Fort Heritage and Frontier RV Park is a newly developed campground just 15 minutes east of Waterton Lakes National Park on Highway 5 near the village of Mountain View. The beautiful mountains in view, waving fields of green grass, the calm and peaceful atmosphere gives Frontier RV a really great down-home feel. It offers 16 powered sites on gravel pads, 18 non-serviced grassy sites by the lake and many more tenting sites – some by the lake and some nestled in the Caraganas. There is lots of space.

With two of the Waterton area main campgrounds closed down, Frontier RV is happy to accommodate those who would still love to visit Waterton and be able to camp close by. The gravel padded sites have new grass growing, power (50, 30, 20 amp), picnic table and an amazing view of the Rockies. There are porta-potties this year. Although it does not yet have water to the sites, there are 5-gallon jugs available for purchase. There are paddle boats and kayaks for fun on the little lake as well. The Frontier RV staff are focused on a welcoming western-style spirit and will do their best to make your stay a great one. In the future Frontier RV will be adding trees, toilets and showers but for now, Frontier RV is good to go and open for business.

Location: 15 minutes east of Waterton, 1/2 mile west of the town of Mountain View AB Hwy 5A 2800 28B
