Welcome to Dinosaur Trail RV Resort

Camp where the dinosaurs once roamed on the Red Deer River in the heart of Dinosaur Valley!

Dinosaur Trail RV Resort is located 11km west of Drumheller, Alberta on North Dinosaur Trail. Home to the world’s largest dinosaur, Drumheller attractions also include the Royal Tyrell dinosaur museum, a historic coal mine, and natural features like hoodoos (towering rocky spires) in Dinosaur Valley. Activities in the area also include golf, biking, hiking and fishing.

A family-friendly resort with a distinctly dinosaur twist, Dinosaur Trail has amenities for all ages including a heated pool, a large green space with horseshoe pitch and dinosaur-themed Frisbee golf, a recreation hall, canoe and raft rentals, and much more. For the kids, enjoy our dinosaur fossil hut, the dinosaur soup pot, a playground, our resort mascots and the resident wildlife - two owls and several bunnies.

Join us for a true dinosaur experience at one of the world’s largest dinosaur fossil finds in the heart of the badlands!

All campers are welcome at Dinosaur Trail and HTR’s other sites. Choose between a nightly fee and membership within our network.
