Camping in and around Alberta - where do you go?

I was out at Boulton Creek in Kananaskis Country at the beginning of June. and I'm headed out to Livingstone Falls West of Longview on the Forestry Trunk Road in Mid-July.
In past years I've spent quite a bit of time out near Canal Flats BC, some wonderful free camping out on the forestry roads around there.

Where do you go?

Fairmont hot springs on May long.

July long we're off to Crimson Lake by Rocky Mountain House.

With small kids it's tough to get too adventurous! Lol

Crimson Lake turned out pretty good. Nice campground and very nice beach for Alberta.

As I posted in the "slow posting" thread. We were at the Coburn Community Hall. Coburn Hall - Google Maps
It's a former one room schoolhouse from back around the turn of the century. It lay alongside the original C&E trail wagon route that first linked Calgary and Edmonton by land.

It's not much, just a small building, a couple trees and a big lawn, but it's perfect for summer gatherings.

Good spot for the kid to run around.

There are some great spots long the trunk road. Nice little trailer, must be a pretty easy load to tow with your truck.
