Bylaws that change every minute
The lake is beautiful, however the county of athabasca do a terrible job running it. If you are going camping to enjoy your stay and relax then this is not the place for you! The bundles of wood are over priced, the rules and by laws change every hour, one second your allowed to have a tent with a trailer, next second your not, the speed limit is for guests only, the young staff rip though the campground at over 20k, the one way roads are again for guest only, not for staff, the security is very poor, we left our trailer on our seasonal site and someone came and shut off the propane causing our food to spoil, our wood pile was tampered with as we had a truck load of wood on our seasonal camp site. If for any reason you need a second vehicle for transportation, you must pay 10$/ night for parking the vehicle on your seasonal site or even in overflow parking even if they are registered under the same household. They change the rules a month into the season, just to inconvenience you. Your children if over the age of 18, must pay extra to stay with you on your campsite. Generators are to be turned off at 11, unless they decide not to enforce the rules, but that only goes for some, chances are yours would need to be off at 11, while your neighbor runs his all night long disturbing the peace of your sleep, special privilege to some but not all, you could be awake at 2 am with your crying baby because Leo is too busy to tell the people to quiet down when campers are blaring their trucks sound system at full, waking you across the campground, and when you go to complain you will see the employees sitting in the cabin with their marijuana and pipes on the table, probably too stoned to give a shit about anything you have to say, I'd rate this a zero but there is no option less than 1! Choose your stay wisely!
Sincerely, pissed off about my first few months stay, at forfar recreation park, biggest waste of 1200$!
