World Famous Calgary Stampede

Calgary Stampede

The Calgary Stampede is the city’s biggest event of the year and with that, Mountain View campground is at their busiest during this ten day major event.  In speaking with the owners, they have folks booking up to 3 years in advance to confirm a campsite during this time.

So if your travel plans include the Stampede and you are traveling in a recreational vehicle, then I highly recommend you call well in advance for reservations!

A great feature is the handy shuttle service from the campground to the fairgrounds during the 10 days the Stampede is running. So there’s no need to worry about driving or parking during that time!

Below,  I have included the parks official website for your convenience, where you can access much more detailed information including,  On-Line Reservations & International Toll Free Contact Numbers for those visiting from abroad.

This campground is definitely a favorite among those traveling in rental RV’s and as an added bonus, the parks staff do “spreken nederlands.” 🙂

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the park in early May a few seasons ago, and were able to get around Calgary’s main tourist attractions easily and conveniently. We hope to return one day soon to experience the Famous Calgary Stampede!
