There are 15 new campsites at the Turner Park Campground.
With 27 campsites before the expansion, the Fort Saskatchewan Lions Club found their area packed with campers. Having to turn down many people over the summer, the Lions decided to save up for a buildout. Now, there are 42 sites.
"The best thing about it is that every dollar goes back to the community," said Lions' treasurer Don Westman.
The expansion came from the profits of the campground itself, which added up to a total cost of $200,000.
All sites offer electricity, water, free firewood and sewer services.
The expansion's design was courtesy of local architect company Voshell and features a paved road alongside rustic wooden fences.
Westman says that the campsite is drawing people from all over the continent.
"The word gets out and the people are coming," Westman said. "I counted license plates from Quebec, New Brunswick, British Columbia, Tennessee, and Montana."
Despite the extra sites, the campground is more packed than before. Westman said that they're still having to turn people down and hopes they'll be able to expand the park again in the future.
"We have to come up with the money, that's the big thing, but the need is there."
