Em-Te Town is an authentic western frontier town tourist attraction and resort near Alder Flats, Alberta, with campground, cabins, motel, saloon, restaurant, and banquet facilities. Come and experience life in the old west in a truly unique and relaxed setting. Take a tour of the town and see the buildings, tools, and implements of a bygone era when the west was first settled. Have a bite to eat in our newly renovated restaurant or your beverage of choice in the ole saloon. Spend the weekend in one of our rustic cabins or full service motel. There is lots of room for camping with new power sites now available. We cater to weddings, reunions, corporate functions, and other special events. There are many activities, both modern and with a theme, for both the young and the old. Check out our website and we will keep you posted with our upcoming events.

During the Winter closure we worked on several planned renovation projects. Some of these are completed but others are still in progress and some have been delayed because of unusually harsh winter conditions this year. Our main focus is to upgrade various facilities. This includes the saloon and banquet room as well as some utilities. We have also expanded our kitchen facilities and are in the process of upgrading our POS system to improve our food and beverage service.

We have recently computerized our reservation systems to increase efficiencies and reduce processing times. As some of you know at times last year making a reservation was a trying experience as our systems became overloaded. We hope you will approve of our efforts and help us along with the transition. It seems that sometimes we just have to find ways to blend the technologies of this age with the ways and traditions of old.

For all that have visited or stayed with us in the past we appreciate your continued support. We will continue to improve our service and facilities to serve you better. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Em-Te town has been under new Management since mid 2008. Since then we have completed numerous renovations and upgrades to the entire facility. These include a new modern kitchen and public washrooms. A renovated dining hall with entertainment system and a new expanded outside licensed covered patio deck. The cabins have new heaters and queen beds. Some of our campsites are now serviced with 30 amp power and water. Numerous town buildings and cabins have new roofs and some have been structurally repaired.

The Motel rooms have been renovated to serve you better. We hope you will enjoy the added comfort. The Cabins have been spruced up, some with new roofs, decks, and awnings. Much of the furniture has been replaced. The main shower house has a new roof and platform. These are just some of the new changes with more to come. 

Our new Grande Banquet Hall was completed in the spring of 2011. Since then many Weddings, Reunions, and other events were held in our new Hall. By all accounts it has proved to be a great success and a good time was had by all. Come on down and have a look, or check it out on our Facilities page. Information on booking your event can be found on our Functions page.


Additional 30A power & water sites have gone in across from the shower house, which will also have new lights for your comfort and safety. The gazebo has been spruced up and moved next to the church. A new petting zoo is in the works near the corrals. The store has more camping essentials, gifts, and fun stuff for the kids. Many more town buildings and boardwalks have been fixed up as part of our ongoing maintenance program to preserve and upkeep the Town.


As part of our efforts to promote the new equine part of our business the entire corral area has been completely renovated. The barns have been cleaned and repaired. Also new fences and corals have been built. We boast a brand new full size Rodeo arena complete with bleachers. We are planning many new rodeo events for this season and beyond. Check our Activities and Special Events pages for updates.

Our goal is to preserve the unique character of old town going into the future. We also wish to continue to improve the standard of the rest of the facility for the comfort and pleasure of our guests. We appreciate your input and thank you for your support.
