LEAVE EVERYTHING BEHIND! Escape Stress! Experience Nature. Experience Certified Organic Agriculture. Birdwatching. Hike. Enjoying light pollution-free night skies in the dark sky preserve giving excellent opportunities to view stars, planets, meteor showers, northern lights, and satelites. Relax and Enjoy the Battle River Valley at it's finest!
We offer an RV experience in the beautiful Battle River Valley. Don't fuss with an expensive and cumbersome RV. Leave everything to us, including the RV! While you're here record the number of bird species you encounter while enjoying the natural solitude we've preserved from our hiking trails, astronomy fans enjoy the dark sky preserve in a light pollution-free sky, pick both wild and tame organic saskatoons, enjoy a quiet campfire in your secluded camp location, enjoy the worry-free and beautiful RV experience, explore the activities of a certified Organic Farm, and so much more! There is much to do to enjoy nature around the resort but evidence has shown that most people take the opportunity to decompress, unwind, and enjoy the peaceful solitude right in their RV location. Come out and recharge!
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.
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!
