History in the Hills is 40 minutes from Medicine Hat Alberta, Canada. Take Hwy #1/41 east to Hwy 41 junction South and go south to the Elkwater Lake town site, turn left at the Rodeo Grounds and then jog right on the side road to the parking area. No parking in front of toilets that is where the buses drop off students and it becomes highly congested! Transportation of wheel chair users and Elders is available upon request.


There are restaurants and stores in the town site, 1 km away

Stay at Elkwater Lake Lodge or in our cabins and tipis

Within this beautiful setting will be an arrangement of tipis, available for overnight camping.

Costs to be negotiated based on meals and night sky programming. Group cabins are  available upon request. Campers must provide their own bedding and toiletries. Elkwater is a dark sky preserve so this is an excellent opportunity to view the night sky.
