Campground Construction with Southwest and Midwest Design & Construction

Campground construction is a unique endeavor that requires striking a delicate balance between preserving nature’s beauty and creating functional campsites that will stand the test of time.

At Southwest and Midwest Design & Construction (SWMW), this is our bread and butter. With over four decades in the construction industry, we bring a wealth of expertise to the table and are well-equipped to handle the distinctive challenges of campground construction.

How We Approach Campground Construction

At SWMW, we approach campground construction with expertise and dedication.

Our decades of experience in the construction industry equip us to tackle the many intricacies of campsite development, from site planning to infrastructure installation. We understand that every campground presents its own set of challenges, and our flexible approach ensures that we adapt to each project's specific needs.

We are committed to preserving the natural beauty of these sites while incorporating modern amenities – whether it's maximizing the use of local materials or collaborating with local sub-trades, we prioritize sustainability and community involvement.

As problem solvers, we navigate obstacles with efficiency and ensure timely project completion!

Recent Campground Projects

Cypress Hill Campground – Pine Hills Site

New Build

The Midwest team began construction in May of 2021, and completed this project at the end of June 2022.

Pine Hills, located on the Saskatchewan side of the interprovincial Cypress Hills Campground, has 60 campsites, 18 of which will be full-service (in this case, full service includes power, water, and sewer services). The remaining 42 sites will have power services.

The sites are of various sizes and orientations; some are pull-through, some have tree backing for privacy, and many can accommodate large Recreational Vehicles.

Our project scope included the construction of the campsites, a shower building, four outhouses, underground utility installation, and various access road construction.

Our main goal was to honour the rich history of the intricate Cypress Hills network by keeping the design and functionality as in tune with nature as possible. It was important to us to ensure that campers enjoy access to the comforts of modern living should they wish to, while balancing out the natural beauty of the park!

Waterton National Park

New Build

The Crandell Lake Campground Kenow Wildfire Rebuild Phase One project was a substantial Re-build of Civil Infrastructure within Waterton National Park, under a federal government contract with Parks Canada. Spanning from 2021 to 2022, this initiative sought to restore critical infrastructure following the devastating Kenow Wildfire.

The project's standout feature was its unwavering commitment to environmental protection. The project owner's top priority was safeguarding the delicate ecosystem surrounding the campground. This encompassed preserving fish habitats, safeguarding bird nesting areas, detecting rare plants, and managing noxious weeds.

Additionally, the project had to handle an archaeologically sensitive area, recognized as the winter hunting grounds for local Indigenous tribes.

Ultimately, this project highlighted the team's capability to handle complex construction within unique constraints and stringent environmental requirements.
