Step back in time and experience the middle ages with modern comforts and conveniences at Good Knights Medieval Encampment!
Located in the rolling hills of Kneehill County, Good Knights is a one-of-a-kind, family-friendly visitor experience. Guests to the medieval encampment can immerse themselves in another world, glamping in luxurious themed tents with costumes, cookery, and activities all carefully crafted to let you escape to another time.
Sir Daniel and Lady Linda Smith discovered their love for medieval re-enactments on a trip to England while in high school and their passion grew from there. In 2017, they decided to turn that passion into a business that others could enjoy. That decision lead them on the adventure of a lifetime as they started the process of turning their 18-acre parcel of land into a medieval village.
"Follow your passion. Have a plan. Get your approvals and permits early. Work with others. Pay attention to details. Keep innovating to stay fresh, and have fun," is the advice that Daniel has for others looking to build a business from their passion. Partnerships are key to the Smith's operation--they source as many of their supplies locally as possible. Make sure to sample beer from local brewery, Prairie Brewing Co. during your stay!
Guests can book now for the 2021 summer season, open from the end of May through September. Each immersive luxury encampment booking includes a multitude of activities from crafting to sword fighting, and a medieval feast for on-site guests every Saturday evening throughout the summer. Royal Feasts are also available to the public monthly, June through September!
