Come out and recharge! 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

  

Well after long wait and hundreds of requests, The Battle River Crossing  Resort is designing and building a public access campground adjacent  the resort, hidden behind the 6 acres of Saskatoon orchard. 30 sites are  currently roughed in and development is quickly moving along with  expectations of opening May long weekend.
 

Please Join Us on Facebook to  view our newest photos of the resort, the beach, and the sites and join  in conversations with other Crossing fans and friends!
 

We ask, out of respect for our guests, that anyone wanting to tour the  resort contact us first to set up an appointment and refrain from  entering the resort without registering. Thank you.
 

Corporate Bookings Available
This year we are opening the resort to corporate  events, reunions, and weddings in a location specially created that can  accommodate 20 RV's and includes a large enclosed tent. So come and  enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the valley on your next special  occasion. 

About Us

 If you love nature, the birds and wildlife, the peace and  tranquility, if you want to have an RV camping experience but don't want  to fuss with the inconvenience, added risk, and high costs of an  awkward RV and tow vehicle or if you are an astronomy fan looking for a  dark sky preserve to map the night sky, then The Battle River Crossing  Resort has what you need! 

 The Battle River Crossing Resort is only an hour east from both Stettler  and Camrose in east central Alberta. We are nestled in a quiet and  secluded bend in the beautiful Battle River Valley. Surrounded by  wildlife and river you can enjoy nature or learn about healthy organic  farming nearby.
 

Living on the nearby family farm that  was homesteaded by his grandfather nearly 100 years ago, owners Don and  Eileen Blumhagen have chosen to share their wonderful river locaton and  provide an experience you won't want to leave.
 

Leave all stress and hassle at home! One breath of the sweet aromatic  river air is all it will take to convince and relax you. All you need to  bring with you is bedding, food and sufficient clothing. We provide the  rest along with a refreshing and rejuvenating experience that cannot be  beaten or matched! 

 The Battle River Crossing Resort is a completely new option for Canadian  summer enjoyment and as such many people have difficulty relating the  benefits of the resort to conventional camping. One of the most  frequently asked questions is "Why would I rent an RV and not buy my  own?" Some of the benefits would be: 

  • Renting an RV keeps your summer camping costs in camping season,  not stretched out in payments all year for years, regardless of use. 
  • Peripheral RV costs are eliminated, such as year-round storage,  propane, sewer and water handling, separate tow vehicle, excess fuel  costs for tow vehicle, added insurance costs, maintenance costs, and  many more. Let BRCR worry about these. 
  • With limited capacity at campgrounds it is crucial to book your  entire camping season far before the camping season. If you miss booking  your RV costs will not go on hold until you find a place to use it. 
  • You don't have to worry about parking, firewood, propane,  dumping, water, site boundaries against your neighbour, hooking up and  pulling your RV, or noise from traffic, neighbours, railroads. 
  • You can enjoy everything a full length fifth-wheel has to offer  simply by showing up in an easy to drive and easy to fuel compact car. 
  • And many more benefits that you need to come stay and see for yourself.

As such there are vast numbers of wildlife to be seen and  enjoyed. However, this environment is not suitable for pets as it may  create a dangerous encounter for them and for humans. To protect you and  your pets The Battle River Crossing Resort is a PET-FREE environment.
