TourismLocated just two hours from the cities of Edmonton and Red Deer in the west and the City of Lloydminster in the east, the Town of Hardisty is perfectly situated for a weekend getaway or that long, summer camping trip.
The Town of Hardisty's booming oil industry ensures strong and vibrant businesses that are here to support you, whether you're here for business or for pleasure. There's rarely need to leave town to find everything you need.
With multiple campsites with full-service sites, the winding Battle River, and two lakes -- one in the town limits itself -- Hardisty provides a nature-lover's perfect paradise. Hardisty Lake is surrounded by walking trails, which provides a perfect opportunity to stay fit while enjoying the sight of bird and wildlife.
Every July, Hardisty bustles with the annual Hardisty Rodeo, filling campsites and hotels to the limits as people from all over Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the northern United States come to compete. The three-day event also features a one-day street fair on its Friday.
