Welcome to Bearberry!

Our hamlet is located 25 km north-west of Sundre at the base of the foothills in southwest Central Alberta close to the east border of Banff National Park. It is located in Mountain View County.

Many people from all over the world settled in Bearberry in the early years of the last century. Many of their families still live in our area. Over the years, more and more people moved to Bearberry because of the peace and quiet, but it maintains its atmosphere as a small, close-knit community..

Ranching is still the heart of the community and wildlife can still be seen frequently. Don’t be surprised if you see some wild horses!

Don’t look for high rise buildings … the “downtown” is only marked by the Community Hall, the Heritage Barn Museum and The infamous Bearberry Saloon. There is no gas station, so please fill up in Sundre before you come.
