Close to Edmonton and St. Albert, but far enough out for a fresh country experience.  Memory Lane Campground offers opportunities to enjoy activities on-site and in the area.

SKY-WATCHING

Remember when you could watch for shooting stars, see the Northern Lights and look for the "man-in the moon"?  Memory Lane Campground is far enough from city lights that you can enjoy seeing the night sky.

Celestial Events for the 2019 Season.

·     

·        October 8 - Draconids Meteor Shower. The Draconids is a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, which was first discovered in 1900. The Draconids is an unusual shower in that the best viewing is in the early evening instead of early morning like most other showers. The shower runs annually from October 6-10 and peaks this year on the night of the 8th. The first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight leaving fairly dark skies for observing. Best viewing will be in the early evening from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Draco, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
