Hours of Operation:
Starland County is a rural community located in the heart of the Canadian Badlands, north of the Town of Drumheller. For adventure, discovery, relaxation and fun...we have it all!! Well maintained campgrounds, fishing, hiking, and sightseeing are all yours to enjoy. Please visit our attractions while you visit the Canadian Badlands.
WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS. All the campsites are first come first serve. If you are having a large group function such as a family reunion, there is a possibility we can reserve a site. Due to the fact that someone has been stealing firewood from our campgrounds, we no longer stockpile firewood in large amounts but we will be delivering loads of firewood to the campgrounds as needed. This will result in shortages of firewood at times and we apologize for that. When you are camping at our campgrounds, if you see anyone stealing wood please try and get their license number and contact our office at 403-772-3793.
