"Must be seen to be believed" - Guest quote

"The nicest place we've been to in Alberta" - Guest quote

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. 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, 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! 



This year for all of you floaters, we are having a poker float in June. More info to follow!

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 R.V’s.  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! 


One of our most popular attractions here at the Battle is floating.  Depending on the year floating is best in June and July.  Floating can be 20 minutes, 45 minutes or up to two hours and you are still on the resort.  From one beach to another beach is a nice trip where you can leave your vehicle or walk back to your campsite, enjoying a scenic hike through the trees.  

Another fun thing to do is disc golfing.  Free if you are staying with us, this 9 “hole” course is sure to challenge you if you are a serious player. If you are out for the fun, you are guaranteed a great time!
