River Meadows RV Park

The Athabasca River flows right past our newly developed, private, RV park conveniently located only 10 minutes from the town of Athabasca. We have decided that we need to share a spot that we love with others. We felt a need for large, secluded, private sites that are out on over 60 acres that allow people to get away from everything, but not be far from town. We love this little spot as it has so much to offer. You can swim by the island when the river height is low, conveniently park your riverboat right out from the day use area, fish, canoe, kayak, and even paddleboard. We are only 8 km down the river from town! There are many trails to walk, run, hike, or pedal bike. If you’d rather taken in a round of golf, it is only a short 5 minute drive to the Athabasca Golf and Country Club!
