My family and I have stayed in many state- and national parks in the USA but this summer we are going to Canada.

I can see various places where I need a fire permit to have a fire, but is that required to grill my dinner as well on a barbeque-grill? Also I can't seem to figure out whether or not there are [b]even firepits/grills in any of the campgrounds in Banff or Jasper! Are there grills in the campsites (and if so, which?). So many US state parks have the grill right on the RV site which we think is awesome. We are coming in a rented RV in early June.

I'm sorry if I'm being daft and hope someone can help me out so I can plan our trip in the best possible way. :-)

Yes you can grill food on a barbecue but please make sure it is properly cleaned and put away after you have finished with it. There are a number of grizzly bears is the park and lots of black bears who would love the chance to help themselves to your grill and food given half a chance.

Here is the link to Banff National Park with details of prices and which campgrounds have fire pits

Here is the link to their listof rules and regs., including the alcohol ban dates;

This is the link to Jasper National Park;

You will also need to purchase a Park Pass which, if memory serves me correctly, is about $137 valid for 12 months.
Alberta also has a number of Provincial Parks that do not require a park pass. Kananaskis being the most notable. I hope you have a great time.
