Situated in the heart of central Alberta, Kneehill County is a progressive rural municipality comprised of approximately 814,653 acres of land and a population 5001. Within the Kneehill County boundaries, are the Towns of Three Hills and Trochu, Village of Acme, Carbon and Linden, and 4 Hamlets (Torrington, Huxley, Swalwell, Wimborne) and other neighbourhoods (Hesketh, Sunnyslope) with a total population of 11,205.
Today, agriculture remains the backbone of the local economy, complemented by a strong oil and gas industry. Wind power is now a fixture in the Kneehill County hills and skies. We are also part of the Canadian Badlands tourism group. Kneehill County borders the Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller and Rosebud Theatre in Wheatland County, which both play a large part in tourism of the region. Camping is very popular in our area, which Kneehill County has four overnight campgrounds under its umbrella (Keivers, Braconnier Dam, Swalwell and Torrington). Municipal campgrounds in Acme, Carbon, Linden and Three Hills are all very busy.
Kneehill County is committed to advancing into a prosperous future and would be interested in accommodating ideas and services in our regional community. For more information, please contact Deb at 866-443-5541.
