Waterton Natural History Association No Longer Operating Crooked Creek Campground

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Waterton Natural History Association will no longer be operating the Crooked Creek Campground, east of Waterton Lakes National Park.

 

After a recent charity review by the Canada Revenue Agency, operation of the campground was considered to be a non-compliant business because it was not listed on the society's founding objectives, which goes back 14 years but was never mentioned until now.

 

WNHA Coordinator Anne McClelland knows this will make things difficult for the association. She says "the campground was our main source of revenue from which we operate all of our other activities inside the park. We also run the Heritage Centre which is a book store but it's mostly a museum and information centre and that is not a profitable business, so we have lost a profit making part of our associations funding, so it's a very major impact on us."

 

The Waterton Natural History Association must sell the campground back to the province, who will decide the future of the campground operations.

 

The campsite had 78 sites, 32 of which were rented by the season for summer holiday stays or by people who work in the park during the summer.
