Visitor's Guide - Cottonwood Campground
Cottonwood Campground 
Cottonwood Campground is located in the Town of Treherne, just west of Vanzile Street. For years, campers have enjoyed the shade of the old cottonwood trees. Clean washrooms with showers, two play forts, playground structure with swings and proximity to Treherne Aquatic Centre, Treherne Museum and Bottle Buildings have all added to the popularity of this campground.

Cottonwood Campground has two areas for camping.  COTTONWOOD PARK is the area with the washrooms and playground structures.  BASSWOOD BAY was built in 2005 and provides full service with 30 amp electricity, water and sewer. 


In the fall of 2012 upgrades to the original campground, Cottonwood Park began.  The west and north sites along the outside edge of Cottonwood Park were upgraded to include 30 amp electricity, water and sewer.  Some trees in this area were removed to make room for larger trailers.  The popular trees along the North side were all removed as they were at the end of their life cycle.   New trees and shrubs to define the sites were planted in the fall.   

Wi-Fi hot spot located by the playground at the Cottonwood Campground provided by the SunRise Credit Union and the Town of Treherne.


2015 rates range from $18.00 to $32.00 per day, these amounts include G.S.T.

Reservations will be accepted starting May 1st.  For reservations please call: 204-723-5040. 
Reservations will also be accepted at pool registration for those that attend in person to book a site, no phone in reservations will be accepted during pool / campground reservation evening as we only have one person taking bookings.  Pool / campground reservation evening may take place before May 1st so please watch local paper and this website under Living Here - Treherne Aquatic Centre for date.
