Worth the trip Jim, very nice drive, you even have a choice of roads and they are all nice to travel on. I personally prefer to stay away from the main highways so I went through Three Hills, Castor, Wainwright, to Marwayne.

Is there a registration, or does one just show up, pay the camp fees, then find a spot to set up?

We had planned on 2012 prairie egg but ended up at a family event instead. The time is problematic for us. I might end up at the Alberta Omelette for my first rally. When we can, we will come.

Just a short drive from Jubillee Regional Park you will find .
The Liveliest little Ghost Town in Alberta lies on the banks
of the North Saskatchewan River. Uptown Heinsburg looks
partly like a ghost town, a remnant from days gone by.
Stop by Railway Theme Park with an impressive restored
60,000 gallon CN water tower and CN Station along the
Iron Horse Trail. This is the eastern trailhead and is a
great place to begin an adventure. www.albertaslakeland.ca/comm_heinsburg.html

Be sure to see Heinsburg Alberta's Vintage Restored CN Train " Water Tower " !
