Proposed New Campgrounds in Kananaskis Valley

Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation is proposing to develop the area along the Lower Kananaskis River between Canoe Meadows and Barrier Dam. Canoe Meadows would be re-built to accommodate special events, river recreation, and to act as a multi-function camping area. Two major public campgrounds are proposed, one at Barrier Information Centre; the other nearer Barrier Dam. More parking would be provided at Barrier Dam and an 18-hole Disc Golf course built between Barrier Dam and the nearby campground. The trail along the Kananaskis River will be upgraded where needed.

    Great news
    I have been using the campgrounds in K-Country for 20 years.
    More campgrounds are required to fulfill the needs of campers.
    Is there a time line in place for completion of any proposal.
