We stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a non-serviced site and I was pleasantly surprised. The site was treed, private and quiet for such a large and busy campground. The place was child and pet friendly, good for walking with a stroller. Had we stayed longer there would have been a lot more we would have checked out. I would return again. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent 30 amp power. The water pressure was good. There are trains every so often, but they are not loud enough to bother me. The sites are close together, but still left a feeling of privacy. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Very calm campground (we heard only the train but very far away). Fire pit. Very kind people at the desk. Store with lot of stuff. On the less good side : there is NO LAUNDRY in the campground and no sewer connection for the RV, so you need to go to the other RV campground which is about 10 minute drive (but too far to go there by foot). The sites are nice but the roads are very narrow which makes it a challenge to back into with larger units. Also a little bit too far to visit Banff.

This is our favorite park in Alberta. The sites are private, the playground is a great spot. There are several hiking trails in the campground and along the river. The showers are clean. The loops D & E are best to stay in for privacy / shade. There is a active amphitheater and children's program here during the week / on weekends. I highly recommend this park. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Unfortunately, you must reserve to come here now. That is often difficult. The campground is right on the river. Some of the best tenting spots are river side. The setting is breathtaking! Located not far from Canmore and Banff. Sometimes there are weekend parties which is loud. The washrooms are clean and you must pay with tokens to use the showers. Often you line up. Go early. The hand dryers in the ladies washrooms never seem to work. Great spot with lots of great hiking trails and bike trails. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground. Our site was furthest from the Bow River, but closest to the shower house and store. Sites are fairly close together but private enough. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice campground with beautiful views of the mountains and lots of mature trees. The sites are nice but the roads are very narrow which makes it a challenge to back into with larger units. We would stay here again. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park but the sites are small and the roads are somewhat difficult to navigate with bigger units. We have stayed here numerous times and will be back. We camped at Bow Valley Provincial Park - Bow Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
