The Leduc County (Alberta) council approved upgrades for Jubilee Park’s campground at Wizard Lake at its Feb. 9 meeting, the Leduc Rep reported.

Once the upgrades are complete, Jubilee Park will have two permanent comfort camping units for rent.

“Most of the amenities are provided. It’ll be a hard-floored unit with a tent top to it. It’ll have bunk beds inside, maybe a table, place to lay down your sleeping bags and camp for the evening,” said Dean Ohnysty, director of parks and recreation for the county. “It’ll open up camping to a different type of user.”

There will also be an additional 26 powered sites, in response to demand from campers. There are currently 32 powered sites out of the 111 on site.

“The demand for power has become more than a want, it’s a need. People need to have the power units, it’s something they often won’t look at asite if it doesn’t have power so this just gives us the capacity to keep those people camping at Jubilee Park,” Ohnysty said.

The $300,000 project won’t begin until the fall so as not to disrupt the camping season and guests at the park.
