Due to the pandemic - operations will look different this year. BALL DIAMONDS and PLAYGROUND equipment is not sanitized and is use at your own risk, social distancing is still enforced (unless from the same household) and any outdoor gatherings must be in accordance with Provincial Public Health Orders. Washroom facilities will be use at your own risk and will be sanitized regularly. 

The campground is located in Treherne, just west of Vanzile Street. Clean washrooms with showers, playground structure with swings and within a close 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.  In 2013, the outside circle was updated to include 30 amp service with water and sewer. Basswood Bay was built in 2005 and provides full service with 30 amp electricity, water and sewer. Due to a storm in 2016 the cottonwood trees have been removed except for a couple along the edge of the campground.
