We are so incredibly thankful for everyone who has been working hard to bring the amazing vision of this family resort to life. From Darcy and his crew at Wiart Dirtwork, to the team at Trevi Pools and Spas Calgary, these groups have really been working their tails off (pun fully intended) to help ensure that the first owners of tiered lots at Raptor Ridge RV Resort are able to pull up and enjoy the family fun next May Long Weekend!

We are getting ready to make a splash here at Raptor Ridge Resort! A big shout out to Jesse, Paul and their crew from Trevi Pools & Spas.
They're working hard to install the pool in the day park area of the resort.
Their expertise in working with our landscape architecture company has complimented the overall vision to ensure that you and your family will be spending next May long weekend cooling off by the pool.

Drumheller's Raptor Ridge RV Resort Breaks Ground on One-Of-A-Kind Recreational Community
Raptor Ridge RV Resort, Drumheller's one-of-a-kind recreational community, officially broke ground on its 325-acre site located on the north side of the Red Deer River escarpment off Highway 576. Following a three-year collaborative application process, engaging with Palliser Regional Municipal Services (PRMS), the Town of Drumheller, the Drumheller community and technical experts, Raptor Ridge's development builds on The Town’s title as Alberta's #1 staycation destination.
Every summer, the dinosaur capital of the world welcomes tourists from all over, looking to experience the world-famous Badlands, the "Largest Dinosaur," and the internationally renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum. With many Albertans looking to stay safe and close to home once again this summer, Raptor Ridge is set to fulfill the high demand for RVing while also bolstering the local tourism industry and economy.
"Our team has worked diligently to ensure Raptor Ridge not only protects The Badlands and supports the local community but also provides an opportunity for local and regional tourism growth for years to come" says Daniel MacGregor, Senior Planner with B&A Planning Group. "Having collaborated with the Town, Palliser Regional Municipal Services and the greater community over the past eight months, we are confident that Raptor Ridge will be a resort community that everyone – owners, guests, neighbours, the Town, and the region – can be proud of."
From the initial concept, the Raptor Ridge Team has strived to ensure the new three season RV Resort addresses all needs. First and foremost is the development not being visible from the valley but also includes protection of The Badlands, minimizing environmental impacts, ensuring a safe development, providing fully serviced and titled RV lots, and enhancing the property with recreational amenities. In support of the local economy, Raptor Ridge is employing local businesses to facilitate the development of the lands, including a local surveyor and earth-moving company. Widespread economic benefit will be seen as people take occupancy of their sites and build decks, sheds and become part of the local community.
The Raptor Ridge RV Resort will develop 88 acres of the 325-acre site, protecting the majority of the land, including the entire Badlands escarpment, in its natural state. A 26-acre Municipal Reserve dedication will be accessible to the public from the Red Deer River. At full build-out, the community will be home to 420 RV lots and a series of amenities including a heated pool, day park with picnic area, walking and biking trails, kids’ playground and "dinosaur dig," a zipline, and more.
The RV lots will be built over four phases of development. Phase 1, with 150 lots and several key amenities, is currently under construction and anticipated to be ready for its first owners later this year.
