About Red Lodge
Red Lodge is a small provincial park in Central Alberta about 15km west of Bowden on Highway 587. It spans 2 quarter sections of land (~320 acres) along the Little Red Deer River. The park was named after a log house constructed in 1900 and painted red by a local rancher.
Summer at Red Lodge
Red Lodge Provincial Park is good for fishing because of the river that flows through the park. Swimming in the river is a popular way to cool off as well. Campers can enjoy a treed campground with group use options. Glennifer Lake is nearby as well for water recreation. There is a boat launch at both South Dyke PRA and Dickson Point PRA.
