We are located in Black Diamond in the Bob Lochhead Memorial Park at the west end of town. The campground is beautifully nestled on the banks of the Sheep River.

Sites will be available starting May 1, 2023 for seasonal, monthly, or weekly usage. Reservations are suggested. However, for day use, no reservations are required – first come, first served.

“We have stayed in campgrounds across all of North America and this is one of our favorites. The sites are large with plenty of space in-between, the internet coverage is good, and the campground is well-managed by people who are friendly and always available and willing to help. Black Diamond is a delightful town with lots of amenities within walking distance. We will come back here.” – Rv’er, September 2021
