    hey guys,

    I’m new in town and I was looking to do some camping in the next few weeks. I was hoping to go to a provincial or a free spot that’s pretty out of the way. Some off-roading to get there is desired.

    Any recommendations?

    You have a couple of options, but honestly the list of places is dwindling since a lot of more remote areas and trails have been shut down by the government in the last 2-3 years. The easiest for you to access right now would be the Ghost PLUZ also known as Waiporus to locals. Link: https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/253...1d24f8ececb/download/ghostpluzmap-may2018.pdf The PLUZs are free camping but you must pack out what you bring in. Also be aware as we get closer to spring you’ll find the area gets crowded and there have even been a few issues with negligent shooters forgetting they have neighbours. Usually it’s easy to find a secluded spot at this time of year though but, on that note, make sure if you go in alone that you let lots of people know where you are planning to explore and have a way to communicate to the outside world. There is no cell service and lots of those trails are very icey with patches of deep snow at this time of year. I highly recommend tire chains and going in a group run with some locals your first time out.
