Spring Lake Campground in Alberta, will be open in time for this upcoming weekend (Aug. 30-Sept. 1), according to mygrandprairienow.com.

The site, about an hour outside of Grande Prairie, was recently taken over by Saddle Hills County which intends to run it from now on.

“The public lands disposition for the campground has been assigned to Saddle Hills County and it will be reopening. It will be open for the long weekend and we’re going to keep it open until Oct. 1,” says County Community Protective Services Director Brian Ballard.

The campground had been closed since May 20 when the previous owners made a social media post announcing the closure and thanking visitors for their support over the last eight years.

A reason for the initial closure has not been released.
