The Alberta’s Guide to Outdoor Recreation on Provincial Crown Land is a new resource for Albertans and other visitors and provides valuable information about outdoor recreation on Crown land.
Provincial Crown land is owned and managed by the provincial government and makes up approximately 60 per cent of Alberta’s land base. This includes public land, parks and protected areas administrated by Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP). It is important for the recreational user to understand the rules across the different land areas. Legislative controls and land designations are used to assist in the management of these lands and resources. The intent of this guide is primarily to provide information on recreation opportunities on provincial Crown land outside the parks and protected areas system, often referred to as public land.

With the record number of reservations we had in Alberta for camping spots last year our Association believes it is really important that we encourage the Minister of Parks to allow access to public lands to handle the overflow of demand for people looking for a place to park their RV this summer. We encourage you to take a few minutes to complete this survey to show your concerns and support for allowing camping on Crown Land.
– Alberta’s government is seeking input into how to support the responsible use of Crown lands, including trails: how they can enhance trails experiences for a variety of users; supporting partnerships, funding opportunities; and how money can be reinvested into recreation as well as education and enforcement.
– The Alberta government is inviting Albertans to tell them how AEP land use policies can provide more clarity and consistency in responsibly managing our shared outdoor spaces.
– The Crown lands are managed for a variety of purposes to include but not limited to conservation, recreation and economic activity. The existing system is complicated and does not always recognize that land is used for a variety of purposes.
– Your input will help shape future policy and legislation for Crown land, including parks and public lands that support recreation for generations to come.
Alberta Crown Land Vision
– The new vision will guide improvements over the coming years to Alberta’s Crown land management system, to make it clearer and easier to understand.
– It will support solutions that make outdoor recreation sustainable and enable more partnerships, and will sharpen government’s focus on achieving outcomes and reducing red tape.
– Many Government of Alberta engagement surveys require registration to participate. This is considered a best practice for survey design and helps ensure the quality of data received is high.
