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.

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.

We got lucky and were able to make a 5 day reservation, three days before arriving at the end of June. Not a recommended approach, book as far in advance as possible. This is a lovely open campground on the shores of Waterton Lake, surrounded on three sides by mountains. A full service pull-through site is just under $40 per night (Ntl Park entry fees extra). Our site was perfectly level and had commanding views of the surrounding mountains. As I am composing this review, a male deer is grazing on the grass outside my RV window. The picturesque little town of Waterton is less than a 5 minute walk from the campground. If you plan on cooking your own meals, bring food with you as selection is extremely limited and ridiculously overpriced. Diesel is not available in the town. The closest place for diesel is Mountain View about 20k East of the park and the closest full grocery store is in Pincher Creek about 50 km North East of the park. The town has free WiFi throughout and it is possible to connect from the campground. Both Bell and Rogers phones work in the park.

As we drove into this small campground (28 sites, no seasonals) I commented to my wife that the grounds were so immaculate, that it reminded me of a golf course. This 40 acre property sits on a lovely little lake with a sandy beach (where we enjoyed a couple of hard lemonade before dinner). There is a 4 km hike, though we only journeyed to the lookoff point where the owners made a tree-log bench for viewing. There is a playground for the children, as well as Adirondack and zero gravity chairs for enjoying the tranquility at the sandy beach. Most sites are 100ft long EWS, but tenting is also possible. $39 for EWS pull-through. Washrooms and showers were immaculately clean. Unfortunately we only stayed one night as we were on our way to the Rockies, as this is a true gem.

Access to this RV resort could not be more straightforward, with excellent signage along Hwy # 3. Sites are side-by-side with no privacy, though each site has a picnic table but no fire pit. There is a pool and laundry facilities. WiFi is a joke. There is a weak signal at the office. You can purchase WiFi for your site but I was told that it only works when there are no clouds in the sky. The name of the campground is accurate, in that it does have a bridge view, however the campground also backs onto a major highway, so you cannot escape the noise when the big rigs pass by - I guess they didn't want to call it "Bridgeview with noisy highway traffic RV resort". The Alberta campground book lists the price of a full service pull-through site at $48, so I questioned why I was being charged $65 for an overnight stay. She laughed and said that was the weekday rate for a very small RV in the off season. At $67, this campground is a total rip off.

Unfortunately we were only able to spend an overnight at this most lonely and remote provincial park that sits along one side of Buffalo Pound Lake. Don't be confused by the various 'campgrounds' listed within the park, they are merely loops within the park. We stayed in Maple Vale loop. Most sites were pull-off with no backing up required, all were large and afforded good privacy, and all had a picnic table and an elevated fire pit. There were washrooms in the loop as well as a water spigot, with showers in an adjacent loop. 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 - typical government bureaucracy. At one point I refused to answer, telling her to get the answer from my online reservation form. At $46 for an E site (including the $8 per vehicle park fee), camping at this provincial park is totally overpriced - you can camp in Banff for less than that.
