About this location
Round Lake Campground is situated within a 33-acre government lease. Our company Highway 63 RV Ltd. obtained the lease on May 17, 2010 and just 4 days later, we were open for business and were bursting at the seams!
About the Lake
Corrigal Lake (locally known as Round Lake) is well known for its natural beauty and amazing sunsets. Our clients are first drawn to our campground because of its beautiful, peaceful setting but they choose to stay in our campground for what it doesn’t offer:
Round Lake is not a fish-bearing or swimming lake but it is ideal for paddle boats, kayaking, and canoeing. Round Lake Campground is family-friendly and ‘off the grid’ which means our clients provide their own water, power source, and are required to dispose of their black and gray water in one of the three on-site receptacles. Cell phone and internet coverage is hit and miss which makes our campground ideal for those who want to ‘unplug’ and ‘get back to nature’.

Events & Incentives
Our client demographics range from young families to middle-aged couples to retirees. Whether you’re looking for peace and quiet, or tons of family-friendly events -- or a bit of both, Round Lake Campground is the place to be!
May - Meet & Greet.
An opportunity for our campers to meet us and one another. It is also an opportunity to review campground rules, expectations and to ask questions. The area Lands Officer from Alberta Environment and Parks is invited to attend and we strongly encourage all campground clients present to attend. Complimentary snacks, beverages, and prizes round out the first event of the season.
June - Photo Contest for Website.
Tenants were asked to submit their favorite campground photos for a chance to win $50 gift cards. Categories: 1. Sunsets; 2. Your Beautiful Stall; 3. Kids at Play. Nearly 100 photos were submitted and winners were chosen by a Facebook group vote.
July – Christmas in July!
Monique teaches the techniques of Watercolour painting for an afternoon in the gazebo. The kids paint a Christmas image of their choice and Round Lake Campground has them professionally printed on Christmas Cards. Packages containing cards and envelopes are distributed to the parents before the end of the season.
August – ‘Clash of the Campgrounds’ River Float.
Teams representing our RV Park and Round Lake Campground take part in a friendly river float (race) that takes place on calm and scenic La Biche River. The float concludes at our RV Park and attendees from both campgrounds gather in the Tiki Bar themed cook house where the winning campground receives the honorary title of ‘BEST MOSICH CAMPGROUND’. Participants receive complimentary beverages and burgers.
August - Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt.
Since the campground is not open for Easter, we host the Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt in the summer! Candies and toys are hidden throughout the campground and the only way to find them is by participating in the scavenger hunt. Organized by one of our wonderful “camper moms”, this event is a hit with the kids and parents alike.
August - Campground Cup Golf Tournament.
This annual fundraiser is co-hosted with Better Den Ome Campground and is open to campers from our campgrounds. For a $100 registration fee, golfers receive transportation to and from the tournament, a steak dinner, golf cart and prizes. Contests, raffles and draws take place throughout the day and all proceeds from the tournament are donated back to non-profit groups in the Wandering River community. This is an extremely popular tournament with a waiting list to get in.
September - Halloween at the Lake.
This is our extremely popular season wind-up / appreciation event. Trick or Treating for kids, prizes awarded for best costumes and best decorated stalls, candy guessing games, spaghetti eating contest, and a fabulous potluck marks the end to an amazing, fun-filled day.
September 2019 - Ten Year Anniversary Celebration.
Anniversary celebration / appreciation event for campers, contractors, and invited guests. Bouncy Castles for kids and ‘Roll Back the Rent’ game for adults. All campers were entered into a draw for a chance to roll back their 2020 season rent to the rate associated with the year on the prize wheel. $2450 in rent credits were won (and redeemed) by our happy campers in the 2020 season.
October - Stall Beautification Incentive.
Campers must enter the contest for a chance to win a $500 rent credit for the following season. Criteria is given at the beginning of the season, judging takes place throughout the season, and a shortlist is determined by the end of the season. In October, we invite 3-4 community members to do a complete walk-through of the campground and determine the winners based on the contest criteria. In 2018, we awarded 8 stalls with rent credits for the 2019 season and in 2020, we awarded 6 stalls with rent credits for the 2021 season – for a total of $7000 in rewards / incentives! The rent credits are a token of appreciation for the effort that our tenants put into their beautiful stalls.

Round Lake Campground is a quiet and relaxing spot. We love it there because of that, along with the short drive from Fort McMurray. Monique and Kevin are very informative and great to deal with. We look forward to spending our summers there.

Round Lake is an amazing place to spend the summers. It is truly a family out there. Everybody watches out for everybody and I feel safe letting my child run and play around the park. The Halloween celebration at the end of the season is a highlight to our summer!
~ Valarie Hare, Fort McMurray
We have been at Round Lake Campground for 6 years and have enjoyed our time here. This is our home away from home.
Big thanks to Monique, Kevin and manager, Jamie for all your hard work. We look forward to many more years here.
~ Hilton Payne and Leigh Young, Fort McMurray
Spent one weekend and decided to put our camper at Round Lake full-time, that’s how much we like it here! It is a great campground for families and we can’t wait to spend the summer there!
~ Brandi Marsh, Fort McMurray
This is our 3rd year enjoying camping at the lake. We love spending time with friends and family and quiet time around the fire.
~ Tonya and Jason Dreaddy, Fort McMurray
Round Lake Campground was our happy place for the last 11 seasons. We enjoyed bringing our family there to create great memories and be in a friendly environment. The campground was always kept clean, tidy and it was well maintained – and the owners are such great, friendly people.
Enjoying nature and the sunsets are beautiful over the lake.
~ The Whiteway’s, Fort McMurray
We loved Round Lake Campground. Monique and Kevin have created a very welcoming atmosphere. The area is beautiful with the most stunning sunsets we’ve ever seen. It is a very clean, family friendly campground, surrounded by beautiful, mature forests. We even had wild raspberries and strawberries that growing around our campsite!
~ Jen and Joel Hoilund, Fort McMurray
