George Lane Memorial Park & Campground situated on the Highwood River in the Town of High River, Alberta, among glorious mature black poplar trees (cottonwoods), many of which are more than a hundred years old.  Located in the middle of town, the campground is convenient to shopping, dining and even a movie.  Yet, unless you look carefully, you would not know the town is there. There are even 2 golf courses nearby.

The campground is part of a public park which has outdoor facilities for baseball, celebrations such as weddings, graduations and birthdays, family outings, picnics, a children’s playground, horseshoe pits, bocce courts, walking and bike riding paths. Swimming, tubing and fishing is allowed in the river.
