Camping season is on in High River.

Much like the Hitchin' Posts opening is the first 'unofficial' day of Spring, today's the first 'unofficial' day of camping season in town.

The George Lane Campground opens today and already most of the long weekends are booked.

However, there are still lots of opportunity to book the in-town campground that's run by the Highwood Lions club.

And because they're not on the provincial campground list you can book year-round and don't have to book only 90 days in advance.

The campground's open from May 1st till the end of September.

To book a site just call the office at 403-652-2529 or email and they do accept traditional mail, aka snail mail at:
