Southern Area Backcountry Campgrounds

Prince Albert National Park

Take a hike and discover diversity!

Some of Prince Albert National Park’s most diverse trails are in the southern portion of the park. On these trails the forest habitat seems to change with every bend or hill. From grassy meadows and jack pine covered hillsides to spruce bogs and aspen woodlands, the park’s southern forest seems to have it all. Camping at one of Prince Albert National Park’s South Area Campgrounds will be the perfect home base to explore this transitional forest ecosystem.

The South area campsites are considered unserviced sites. Regular backcountry fees apply. Please remember to register.

Backcountry registration for these areas can be done at the South Gate or the Visitor Centre.
