Why Do You Have To Go?
Aspen Crossing is an homage to the earliest communities in Alberta that used to live around the railways. Situated in one of the stretches of the former CP Rail line, Aspen Crossing utilized the landscape as a backdrop for fun-filled events.
There are exciting train-theme excursions like the “Train of Terror” during Halloween and the “Polar Express” every Christmas. There are also eating options from the tavern or the vintage dining car.
What’s Great About It?
Aside from being a prairie oasis, Aspen Crossing is a family-friendly picnic area. Some sites can accommodate RVs, and there is a campground that has a swimming lagoon. You have no shortage of merchandise because many items are available in their shops. It is just a 40-minute drive southward from Calgary.
During your visit to the campground, you can book a discounted ticket for a train excursion.
