7 Things to Do in Cardston That You Shouldn't Miss

December 25, 2017 Jacquiline Delozier

Cardston is a town in southwest Alberta, Canada. Cardston was settled in 1887 by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) from Utah Territory who travelled via the Macleod-Benton Trail to Alberta in one of the century's last wagon migrations. They had departed April 6 and arrived June 3. The official founder of the town is Charles Ora Card, after whom the town is named. The combined church and school was completed by January 29 the following year after their arrival.

Cardston Sweet Shop

Cardston Sweet Shop is an delightful candy store that has something for everyone. It has a great selection of Canadian Candy, hard to find candy, imported candy from the Uk, vintage sodas, and more. Cardston Sweet Shop also sells some of the most delicious ice cream from Mackay's Dairy. Nearly double the cream, and hand-made, this ice cream is one of a kind. A must stop for every visitor.

Courthouse Museum

Reviewed By mich-weedman

Cardston, MT was founded in 1887 and this courthouse converted to a museum has a huge number of artifacts from then to literally last month. Older folks like me (75) will be reminded of their grandparents homes and even things from their childhood. Younger people and kids will marvel at things like typewriters and 16mm projectors. Veterans will be reminded of their service. Seeing three jail cells from 1907 should be interesting to all. Overall, a most educational and interesting place. No charge. We were the only ones there.

St. Mary Reservoir Provincial Recreation Area

Reviewed By Thrift M - Cardston, Canada

This recreation area has two main sections...the upper area above the dam whete the main lake is, and the lower area below the dam. The lower area is where I spent a great afternoon of swimming, eatiung and snoozing. There is a campsite in the lower area in view of the spillway. There is no potable water but sites are powered. The bathrooms are pit style but the one I used had no odours. In addition to the sites that can be reserved there is a day use area. I took my three year old for her first swim in a lake at the beach area. Note that there is no sandy beach here. The swimming area was very nice here with no weeds although there were some larger rocks further out. The depth increases gradually with no sudden drop-offs. There isn't much shade in the swimming area but in other parts of the day use area you could find some. The upper lake area was quite busy with lots of boaters and jetskiers. The area around the dam itself has a trail along the bottom and some interpretive signs at the top. The lower area at the campsite is in a valley and at night it is very dark and very quiet.
