At this moment, there are two proposals in the public domain to change campgrounds in K-Country.

The first proposes the closure of the Three Sisters Campground in Dead Man's Flat. Ostensibly because of flood risk, but in great part due to improving wildlife corridor linkages, the plan would be to turn the campground into a Day Use Area, primarily to access the boat launch ramp. The public comment period was extended by 30 days, and now closes February 13, 2017. There will be an open house at Elevation Place in Canmore on Feb 1 from 5-9 PM. Read more about it here.

The second involves numerous changes to campgrounds in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, including:
* adding 34 RV sites to Boulton Creek;
* making a parking lot at Boulton Creek an overflow campground, similar to what is done at Pocaterra;
* Upgrading of the Mt. Sarrail walk-in tenting campground;
* Closure of 12 lakeside campsites at Lower Lake for wildlife habitat reasons.

The public comment window is open until Feb 7. Read more about this proposal here:

Three Sisters Campground in Dead Man's Flats will stay open as a campground.

Bow River Campground near Canmore has re-opened with most sites now served with power and water. Not sure but don't think there's septic waste connections.

Porcupine Group Camp will be closing in its current location and re-openeing in Bow Valley Provincial Park near Rafter 6.
