Upgrading Trails and Campgrounds to Better Meet Needs of Residents and Visitors


University of Calgary

Trails and campgrounds are available in most communities now. They have the potential to not only get residents active but to have a positive economic impact through attracting visitors to a community. The proper layout and redevelopment of a campground will better serve visitor needs and yield positive results in terms of increasing visitation. Jaspers Whistlers Campground provides a background for the discussion. Kneehill County is used to present a business case for redevelopment and expansion of trails and campgrounds. The Glenbow Ranch trail assessment is used to show what works and what doesn’t in trail development.
