It's not too late for those who haven't booked a campsite for the long weekend, says Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation spokesperson Susan Johnson.

Some of the campsites take reservations up to 90 days beforehand, but Johnson says there are plenty of other options.

  • Listen to her full interview on the Calgary Eyeopener below:

"For those of us that maybe don't have that flexibility with our work schedule or family obligations, I mean that's why the first-come, first-served is so popular too because you can literally get out there and nab it that day."

Johnson says one of the ways you can find vacant sites is trying one of the smaller campsites around the province.

"They don't offer maybe all the modern amenities, but if you want a quiet more rustic experience you can certainly find that as well."

Johnson has a few choice picks that she recommends for those still wanting to head out, including Kananaskis.

"K-country is always very popular and Bow Valley Provincial Park has first-come, first-served and that's great for families too. There's lots to do in that beautiful part of the province," says Johnson.

"If you want to go maybe down to Dinosaur Provincial Park — ... a little quieter but gorgeous views — and even further down south to Little Bow Provincial Park and there's lots of stuff for families to do there as well."

If you want to find out more on the availability of campsites just head online.
