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.

Em-Te Town will re-open for business in April. We have had an
unusually heavy snow pack so opening day will depend on spring
thaw conditions, and the completion of our current renovation
projects. Please check back here for further details!
During the Winter closure we have working 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 has
been to upgrade the facilities that are winter compatible to
allow us to remain open throughout the year. 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 food and beverage service.
We also plan to computerize 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 a bygone era.
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.
