This was the first Canada Provincial Park campground I happened upon enroute to the Alaska Canada Highway via San Antonio, Texas and I wasn't more pleased, impressed and happy to see that Canada camps so much better than my fellow countrymen and women. This rustic, diamond in the rough was just what I expected my East Access Route to the AlCan would be and Bow River Camp Ground nestled in the forest with the Three Sisters on one side and the Bow River on the other, Delivered. I guess I was so worn out from driving and marveling at the great sights of the country I was passing through and hiking, biking, jogging through the woods and splashing around all the cold, clean water I was finding...I slept right through the highway noise other reviewers refer to. Thank you Canada. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow River Campground in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Fish, swim, wade, splash, tube the Bow River. Nature walk, jog, walk, bike up the mountain through Three Sisters Mountain Village...where you can get your retail fix.

This is boon docking. There are no facilities other than "out houses" and a hand water pump available. The vistas are spectacular. Very quiet and serene. There are sites situated very close to the river. Also some site that are very close to the Trans-Canada Highway so these will be quite noisy. Not big rig friendly at all. The park road is narrow and winding. Lots of low hanging branches and large trees to maneuver around. Just a few miles to Canmore where there are all amenities and plenty to see and do. The best part of our visit was a Black Bear wandering through our site in broad day light. We would stay here again. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow River Campground in a Motorhome.
