Escape to the Cypress Hills

Just half an hour south of the Trans Canada Highway, this high plateau stands above the prairie as an island of cool and moist forest. With its mix of forests, wetlands and grasslands, it is home to an astonishing diversity of plants and animals: over 220 bird species, 47 mammal species, as well as several species each of reptiles and amphibians.

With such varied resources, Cypress Hills is a wild and wonderful place to explore! Campgrounds are open year round or you can relax in one of our resort lodges.  Enjoy a quiet stroll along a lake, go fishing, discover the Dark Sky Preserve or view wildlife. Over 50 km of trails are waiting for you to explore on foot, mountain bicycle or cross-country skis.  

Step back in time and visit Fort Walsh National Historic Site which takes you back to the 1870s when whiskey traders, Aboriginals and the North-West Mounted Police co-existed.
