Welcome to the Village of Rycroft

Known as the “Hub of the Peace”, the Village of Rycroft is located in northern Alberta, Canada, 68 km north of Grande Prairie and 8 km east of Spirit River.

The Village of Rycroft was established as a village in 1944.

The Village of Rycroft is well known as a tourism town in the 60's, 70's and early eighties. It is the hub of the Peace and was originally situated for the Northern Alberta Railroad (also known as NAR).

The local campground, Nardam was given this name for that very reason. The small lake was man made as a source of water for the railroad and later on when NAR no longer required the water it was turned into a campground and therefor named "Nardam".

A Caboose is a permanent fixture from NAR in Edmonton for historical value.

As of late the new rage is the Rycroft Chuckwagon Races hosted by The Rycroft Agriculture Society.

The main industry is agriculture, with retail, oil, transportation, and education also contributing to this area’s economy. www.discoverthepeacecountry.com

With a population of 638 (2013), Rycroft serves a surrounding trading area of approximately 5,500.
