Are you searching for the largest dinosaur in the world? Look no further than Drumheller, Canada. Although this location is pretty far off the beaten path, many visitors love coming to Druheller to get away from the crowds and take in some beautiful scenery.
There are also many local attractions that draws in people including:
- Dinosaur Provisional Park
- Atlas Coal Mine
- Horseshoe Canyon
- Star Mine Suspension Bridge
Before we get into camping in Drumheller, we wanted to quickly talk about Dinosaur Provincial Park. Located in the Badlands, this is one of the more popular attractions in Alberta. Not only does it boat the worlds largest dinosaur (a t-rex), but it also has guided day tours through their quarry to see historic fossils. It is completely interactive and you may even catch some excavations an the discovery of a new dinosaur.
There are several great campsites to stay at in between your adventures. Most come with your standard fire pits and picnic areas, but few are very close to recreational areas such as hiking and fishing.
The campsites come equipped with gas barbeques, so we decided that tonight would be a perfect night for a couple of steaks. Beef is amazing and affordable in Alberta so I bought the most expensive cuts I could find at $7 a piece. Not bad!
