Cold Lake M.D. campground will see continued work this year

The phased expansion of the Cold Lake M.D. campground is ongoing, and will continue through the camping season.

The M.D. park is currently closed to all outside visitors, with the exception of construction crews. The campground will open on May 14 for the 2021 camping season.

“While we will be doing everything we can to minimize the impact of construction on their stay at the park, visitors should expect there to be noise and dust during the day at the campground this season,” says Parks Manager, Rodney Guilbault.

“There will be heavy equipment working. The construction site will be cordoned off for visitor safety. The overflow camping area will be closed this summer, and the expansion may affect the availability of some  sites.”

Phase I of the project includes the installation of waterlines and other services for the expanded park, which will see 74 new sites added. Phase II, which is scheduled to begin this year, will include installing electrical services, creating a road loop system, and building up the new sites. Phase III will include paving the main access road and adding finishing touches to the campground.

Updates will be posted on the website (www.mdbonnyville.ab.ca), Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MDBonnyville), and the online reservation system at www.campreservations.ca.
