We stayed here at the end of July. The weather was very hot and we were so glad to find some cool little streams you can walk to, along the trail just down from the main R.V. Park. They were fun to splash and walk along. We were also happy to find a waterfall of sorts, at the seemingly end of the trail which is an organic hotspring of sorts, actually being the overflow of hotspring water from the pool. This was our highlight with our visit to this park. The washrooms were clean and the laundry room was adequate. Very child friendly, and our pets were accepted. We had a very nice time at this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this RV park. It was clean and set among the trees and mountains. We had a Deluxe site and were very pleased. It was a bit of a walk for change and ice as both are only obtained at the RV office. The only reason this did not get a 10 was because there was only a community fire pit and we prefer a pit at our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The hot springs pools are an additional fee when using the RV Park - and for a family of 4 you will spend as much on a day pass to the pools as you spend for one of their deluxe sites. Having stayed here twice now, I would not stay again unless we have a deluxe site booked. The standard sites are extremely crowded and not very nice considering how little you save compared to the deluxe sites. The wireless internet is free, but it's not very good, so we used our cellular service when here - the cable TV was great though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The superior sites are excellent, concrete pads, wide sites and mainly level. Good Wi-Fi, restrooms very clean and hot showers. Hot pools add a delightful setting with grassy areas and lawn chairs. Stayed for 3 nights. Laundry facilities also excellent. Would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The scenery is gorgeous and access to the hot springs a 2 minute walk or nearer depending on where you are located in the campground. There are a variety of site classifications and the deluxe sites have the best views of course and more amenities. Very family friendly. Can't really go wrong on any of the sites. Everything is well serviced and maintained. There is no Wi-Fi at the standard sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The following applies to the "deluxe" sites, which I feel are grossly over priced: Internet is miserable. In this day and age, a good park should spend the money and upgrade their service. Some sites not level. On ours, #200, I could not level the motor home it was so bad. Bring 40' of sewer hose, as some sites are laid out as if the designer never saw an RV park. Utilities are "40 behind the parking spot. Hot springs cost $10/day, the most we have paid in Canada this trip. I will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very large park, with many types of sites. I stayed at a paved deluxe site, which wasn't particularly level. WiFi is pay only, and the machine was not working when I was here. The washrooms were clean, as was the place itself. I did pay for the pools, which were well worth it. But yes, it's overpriced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The premium pull-through site (194) we had was very long. Wi-Fi is available for a fee: didn't buy, used our Telus AirCard. Hot springs and swimming pool is at extra cost. Rate is Canadian price and somewhat over priced, especially when everything is at additional cost. Overall it's better than most RV Resorts in Canada. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a "destination park" for the most part, with the pool fed by the hot springs being the focal point. Prices have increased quite a bit over the last few years (C$55 for deluxe sites, C$10 to use the pool). The RV park is accessed by a narrow road with one hairpin turn. The interior roads are paved and in good condition. Sites are " unserviced ", "standard", and "deluxe", and there is a huge difference. Unserviced sites are generally tucked into the woods with gravel access over some steep terrain. Standard sites are gravel with paved access, with some steep access points. Deluxe sites are all paved (access and site) with a paved patio for the picnic table and lots of grass between the sites. All of the deluxe sites are full service (E/W/S), and 70% are 20/30/50 amp (the remainder are 20/30 amp). Standalone tenting is not allowed, but tents can be pitched on an RV-occupied site as expansion room. Washrooms and laundry are clean, centrally located, and possibly a bit undersized if the RV park had been full. Satellite access is possible from the row of sites closest to the footbridge to the pool. We didn't run into any hotel vs. RV bias; staff and other guests were uniformly helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical canadian campground. Small sites, excellent views. Americans will want the 'deluxe' sites as they have a bigger pad and 50AMP service. Showers are terrible - no temperature control or volume control. You push a button on the wall and get about 10 seconds of water. Everything is extra$$ - and the locals tend to stare and point a lot. Good stopping place on the way to Banff and Lake Louise. Nice hot springs on the park but it costs you $7 to use. Overall they go out of their way to let you know that the hotel (resort) guests are more important than the campers. We couldn't wait to get back to the USA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unless you are in the "Premium" part of the park (at the price of $41) you will be in just a so-so park and not one that would be "the highest rated park in Canadian Rockies." The spa you get to use is a "public pool/spa" and is crowded and has babies in it in diapers. Who knows what is 'in the water' by the evening? The condition of the spa is poor with peeling paint/concrete. Lifeguards didn't seem to mind the babies in the spa. Also, in addition to the $41/night you have to pay extra to use the spa/pool, a hefty sum for a family. We paid $7 each to enter once a day, daily rate was $10 each. It all adds up! The guests of the resort use a different pool/spa. Internet kiosk in the laundry ($1 for 10 minutes), but Wi-Fi available in the lounge of the main building. (Free) I wouldn't bother to stop here again. I'd stay longer at Whistler or Lake Louise! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Fairmont Hotsprings Resort RV park is a very well maintained campground with almost all the amenities you could want. There is a large hotsprings pool plus separate cold water diving and lap pools closeby to the RV park. Hot showers and washroom facilities are available as well as an upscale restaurant in the lodge. The deluxe sites are located more in the open area of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has a great location near the Hot Springs and shops. It was nice being so close to the river and having grassy areas to play sports. Also the staff was friendly. Only downfall was some of the louder group campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pros: A friendly front desk, convenient shuttle service to the hot springs, shopping, golfing, clean pool for the kids, good running (jogging) location. Cons: Was very little water pressure in less than pristine showers, the free WiFi is only available at sites very close to office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only downside of beautiful Spruce Grove is that the free WiFi didn't reach to our site on the river. We had plenty of room to back into our site, and loved walking our dogs through the grounds. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is perfect: the hot springs are only a 5 minute drive away, and half-price ($5 Canadian) for the last hour of the day, 9-10 p.m. This is a great overnight park on the way to Banff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairmont Hot Springs is much less crowded than Radium, so it's a good place to relax. This park is right on the highway, so expect some noise. Night traffic is very modest, so it is livable. All of the W\E\S hookups are right by the road, but there are many sites well off the road and very quiet, very private. Internet works well in the several sites near the road, but not the more remote ones! Would stay again for a short stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent family campground. Pool is right behind the office and is nice and looks clean. The office staff are friendly and helpful. There is plenty of parking space and access to the sites in the front area of the park. The back section next to the river looked at little bit cramped for large rigs. They don't seem to have many full hook up sites. Water pressure isn't bad, and the sites are clean. The free WiFi was fast and worked at our site which was directly in view of the office, but was told that it didn't reach all sites. Very convenient access directly off the highway - traffic noise was a little bothersome at busy times, but not too inconvenient. They have fire pits and grassy sites, with gravel pads. There is a small playground area for kids. Overall, I would recommend this park as an economical alternative in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
