"Camrose, Alberta" Camrose by iamted

Camrose Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 7 photos

Camrose is a beautiful prarie city of about 16,000, in Eastern/Central Alberta, South/ East of Edmonton.

I visit Camrose for the summer festivals, (J-Walkers Jamboree, Stage 13 Rock Concert, or Big Valley Jamboree). These are multi-day concerts with attendance more than double the cities population. The fairgrounds turn into a mini city with everyone focused on having fun.

I have many friends who attended Augustana University, in Camrose because of the excellent Cross Country Ski program. The ski-trails are right across the street, so they can train every day of the week.

Camrose is a very friendly place, where everyone you pass on the street says hello.

They have a website at http://www.camrose.com

    I spent a night or two at the Norseman Inn in Camrose back in 93. I have relatives in Hay Lakes, believe it or not!
