By private campground standards, the sites are large, however there is no privacy between sites. Our site was not level from side to side and it was necessary to use levelling blocks - not a good sign in a campground that only opened this season. Interior roads are not paved, rather they are gravel, as are site pads. WiFi is excellent. The washrooms are unique, with private rooms containing a shower, toilet, and sink - very nice, but they need to do something about the shower enclosure so that it does not leak water all over the floor. The laundry facilities are located in the same buildings as the washrooms (wash $3, dry $1/15 min). They are attempting to represent themselves as a luxury RV resort. With gravel roads and pads, no pool, clubhouse, or games room, the only thing luxury about this place is the price. At $70 plus tax for a campground that is still under construction, this place is overpriced.

This is a fairly typical municipal campground with side-by-sides and having little privacy. As their website says, the campground is located next to Kicking Horse River, which is a pleasant place to sit and contemplate the milky water as it flows by. However, their ad does not mention that on the other side of the river are train tracks, on which trains run throughout the night - bring earplugs. All sites have a picnic table and fire pit, and firewood($) is available at their small store. Electric and water connections require 60 feet of hose/cord. Hot showers are $1/6 min. There is free WiFi, but it is extremely slow.

This private campground caters primarily to seasonal and full-timers. Interior roads are in terrible condition. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Our site backed onto the creek and was long but narrow. As well, our site was not level side to side. WiFi does not work even with an extender. I went to the office to inquire where the nearest router was located. She said that it was in the building. When I said that I was unable to get connected, she commented that the router was located at the back of the building, not inside. So much for signal strength. I hate RV parks that advertize offering WiFi, but there is little or no signal. Laundry is $1.25 wash, $1.25 dry x 20 min, and firewood is $10 a bag ($8 at grocery stores in town)

Apparently this open campground at the edge of Black Diamond was hit hard by the floods of 2013. They have done a wonderful re-building job, with gravel sites generally being wide and spacious. Each site has a picnic table and firepit. There are a number of seasonals and the campground has campground hosts. WiFi works from all cites. There is overpriced diesel and food in town, a few restaurants (Vietnamese, Chinese, 2 pizza, hotel restaurant). The closest laundromat is in Turner Valley, 3 km away. At 22 km away, Okotoks is the closest full service community with Costco, WalMart SS, Home Depot, Sobeys, etc., and gas is about $0.10 a litre less expensive.

This is a lovely wooded campground about 2 km uphill from the town of Radium. Almost every day as we entered the campground we were greeted by bighorn sheep. Advance reservations are necessary, though there are a few non-reservable sites, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is significant variability in terms of the size and privacy of sites. Many sites are in serious need of re-grading. There are washrooms with free hot showers and electric outlets in each loop. Bell and Rogers work throughout the park, but there is no WiFi. Site G3 is a disaster. It is very narrow and drops off on both sides, such that when sitting at the site, you are about eye-level with your RV tires. The site is not level side-to-side or front to back. And finally, as the site was not long enough, it was necessary to detach the truck from RV. Fortunately after 3 nights I was able to switch to another site. Site H19 is designated as a pull-through for RVs up to 35'. Because of the sharp angles and the placement of the non-moveable picnic table, it was necessary to back in my 33 foot 5th wheel, which put me too far away from the sewer connection. Despite the drawbacks of these two sites, we enjoyed our two week stay at this campground.

This lovely quiet wooded campground is only 2 km south of the town of Jasper. There are fire and no fire loops, and sites range from totally unserviced to fully serviced (30w E, W, S). There is considerable variability as to site size and privacy. Full service sites seem to have the least privacy and tend to be small. We were in loop 30 (unserviced, no fires) and the sites were spacious and offered good privacy. There are two shower buildings with 6 showers each, one for men and the other for women to service the 700+ campsites. Each loop has a washroom with toilets, sinks with hot & cold water, electric outlets, as well as an outdoor sink for washing dishes. The dump station can accommodate 8 RVs at one time, but black tank flushes are not possible as the non-potable water hose does not have a proper fitting. There is no WiFi, but cell phone coverage is good throughout the campground. Free WiFi is available at the municipal library (open daily expect Sun). Paid WiFi ($2/20min) is available at the laundromat on Patricia St. The PetroCanada, next to Robinsons grocery store on Connaught Dr sells propane by the pound. Both of the PetroCanada stations and the Shell on Connaught sell diesel.

We had been staying at the Waterton Townsite campground, but were unable to extend our reservation over the weekend, thus we booked 2 nights at Waterton Springs. It is only 3 km outside the Ntl Park gate and across the road from the Buffalo Paddock. The full service sites, as you would expect, are side-by-side-by-side. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit (firewood $13). We were in site #61, which is at the end of a row, and when entered from the wrong direction, has a nice view of the mountains. WiFi is $5/day, showers are $1 for 6 minutes and laundry is $2.25 wash, $1 for 24 minutes drying. There is a lovely 1km prairie trail at the back of the campground. Staff are most friendly and helpful.

As I had pre-registered online, check in was a breeze, but true to form, the Parks Canada staff couldn't even give us proper directions to our site. Fortunately there were many vacant sites so turning around and entering from the proper direction was not a problem. The layout of this campground is ridiculous. All sites are shared and the electric connection is on the wrong side - thus many campers with short electric cords park in the wrong direction. At 13 feet wide, sites do not offer much privacy. All sites are 30 amp (no water or sewage), some having fire pits. There is no dishwashing station, the only potable water is at the dump station, and to access the dump station you need to drive all the way to the campground entrance and then double back to the dump station. Because of the fitting on the hose at the dump station, it is not possible to do a black tank flush. The person that designed this campground should lose their job.

I had pre-booked on line and check-in at the campground was efficient and involved simply confirming my name. The provincial parks could take a lesson from their federal government counterparts, and stop requiring re-registration for campers who have already registered online. Our site was EWS (30A) and all sites appeared level (did not see any levelling blocks being used). There are several washrooms with free showers in each section. There are no laundry facilities or WiFi in the campground. Laundry (wash $4, dry $0.25/5 min) is available in a tiny strip mall at the Douglas Fir Resort (800 Tunnel Mountain Road). Free WiFi is available at both Visitor information centres, the library, as well as several restaurants in town. Bell and Rogers have phone service (and if you have a data plan you can access the internet), and satellite TV worked at our site. Diesel is available at both the Shell and PetroCanada stations on either side of Wolf St., however their lots are small so leave your rig at the campground.

Wapiti is one of two in-town campgrounds that are part of the 5 campgrounds in Bow Valley Provincial Park. It is typical of a municipal campground. Sites are close together but level, and each has a picnic table and fire pit. Most fire rings are very close to the RV pad, so keep your fires small. There are washrooms, showers, and a laundry room with one washer and dryer (wash & dry $2 each); fortunately it is open 24 hrs a day. Firewood is available ($10/ bundle, $35 for 4 bundles). The condition of the main entry road make the speed bumps redundant. Take the third of 3 exits into Canmore when coming from the east/Calgary, first exit when coming from Banff. It is located next to the Alberta tourism, which has free WiFi. Next to the campground is a Petro Canada that sells diesel. Tenting sites, that are nestled in a treed area, are $27, E sites are $37.

Date of Stay:

Not being able to get a reservation in any serviced campground in Canmore, we stayed at Willow Creek, which has 15 and electric. The area with electric hookups resembles an open overflow campground, however the other loops are quite nice, being mostly shaded and private. This is a first-come-first serve campground with self registration (CC accepted). Firewood is available ($10, or 4 bundles for $35), and there is a freshwater spigot at the dump station. Sites are quite narrow and short, making it necessary for me to detach the truck from the 5th wheel. There are laundry facilities (wash and dry $1 each) and communal fire pits.

Booked this place because it was just down the road from Bucars RV, where I was having some work done the following day. What a disgusting, scary place this is. This place is home to mostly seasonals including derelict RVs, with a few unsuspecting overnighters like ourselves. The site was so short that the truck had to be disconnected from the 5th wheel. The site was soft and wet, as was most of the campground. There was garbage on the site from the previous guests. Washrooms were disgusting, laundry room was clean, but 1 of the 3 washers was broken (wash $2, dry $0.25/5min). We went to the nearby Crossiron Mills factory outlet area, and I wondered if the RV would still be there when we returned. Fortunately my appointment was at 8:30 in the morning, so we got out of there as early as possible. Tip: avoid this place and park overnight in anyone of the large parking lots in the Crossiron Mills factory outlet area.

This is nice little provincial park on the shores of Lake Superior. We reserved online, yet had to re-register upon arrival with the person at the kiosk asking all the questions that I had answered on the online registration form - such inefficiency! Waterfront sites are quite wonderful, though tend to be quite windy. Sites one row back from the water are better suited for sitting outside and having a campfire. And if you enjoy late sunsets, this is the place to be in June when sunset is after 10:15pm. There are laundry facilities (wash $1.50, $2.00 dryer). Fill up your freshwater tank at the dumpstation as you cannot attach a hose to the water spigots through the campground. And good luck finding the location of their garbage cans. Rogers but not Bell has phone service within the park. The Lookoff Trail provides a nice view of Lake Superior. I don't remember the price, and am unable to submit this review unless a price is given, so the $30 campground fee likely is an error.

As I commented in my 2015 review of this campground, this is a nothing fancy RV park, with unserviced and 30 amp electric sites. There is a fresh water spigot at the dump station. As I observed idiots cleaning their black hose from the potable water spigot, you may want to bring a container of Javex to clean the faucet. Unfortunately reservations are not accepted. The big change this year is that there is free WiFi in the campground. As we were in the middle of the campground I cannot comment on how the connection is at the far end of the campground. The best part of this campground is its easy access to Montreal via the subway (Longueuil-Université de Sherbrooke metro station) and the view of the city across the water are unbeatable.

This is a municipal campground that is first-come-first-serve. There are tent and RV sites, several pull-throughs with EWS, and backin's that are unserviced or with EW. There is a dump station. All sites have a concrete picnic table & fire pit. The shower room could be cleaned more often. Nearby is a tourist information, grocery store, liquor store, and diesel. If you have an inflatable, the lovely Milk River borders the campground. It is an easy 30 minute drive to Writing-on-Stone PP, if that campground is full.
