The Foothills Recreation Management Association (FRMA) is a group of companies and organizations committed to providing safe and affordable outdoor recreation opportunities in Alberta’s foothills area.
The northeast slopes of Alberta’s foothills are rich in economic and recreational opportunities. The economy and communities of the West Yellowhead region are largely dependent upon the wealth created in the forest, mining, energy, and tourism industries. Equally valued by locals and visitors are the outdoor recreational opportunities the area provides.
Through the Foothills Recreation Management Association, the partners in the association provide quality camping, hiking, fishing, and other outdoor recreation opportunities managing 15 campgrounds and eight trail systems in the foothills area near the communities of Hinton, Edson, Robb, Cadomin, and Brule.
The Foothills Recreation Management Association’s campgrounds and trails are maintained by Fox Creek Development Corporation. Fox Creek Development Corporation is an Aboriginal owned and operated not-for-profit company committed to creating and maintaining jobs for Aboriginals (Treaty, non-Treaty and Métis) in the Hinton area.
Reservations for campgrounds can be made by calling Fox Creek Development (780-865-2154) during office hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Monday through Friday.
