Park Reservations and Admissions

Park Reservations

Entry to Belfountain Conservation Area and Cheltenham Badlands is by reservation only. Use our new online* reservation system to book your date and time to visit each property during regular hours of operation. This will allow us to limit the number of people who can enter each property at one time and create the conditions needed for physical distancing. This video will show you how to book a reservation using our online reservation system.

*if you are unable to complete an online reservation call 1.800.367.0890 for assistance.

Refunds will not be issued for cancellations that are within 48 hours of the reservation time.


Park Admissions

Entry to Island Lake CA, Terra Cotta CA and Ken Whillans R.M.A is subject to park admission fees. Park admissions fees can also be paid upon arrival approval at the park.

General admission is free for Conservation Parks members. Please check park conditions before leaving home for the latest updates at each park.
