Spent two nights here in order to visit Banff National Park/Lake Louise. It had rained and huge puddles covered the blacktop. We had only 15 amp electric, NO water, NO sewer & the WiFi did not work. They charge for showers and they were not clean. It was a very unpleasant place & would not recommend to anyone. It seems to be connected to some attractive adjoining condos by the same name & it is surprising the RV park was so bad. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This one of the lowest rating we have given a RV park. The roads are terrible with major potholes. The grass is dying, and the sites are tight with trees and rocks making turns difficult to get into or exit. A train goes thru 5 or 6 times a day the good news they do not use the horn. The sites are small but manageable, this is one of the most beautiful places in North America it is a shame it is not better maintained. Would not return to this park. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Canmore is a great town and Banff is a true National treasure of Canada.

Beautiful views, close to trains although they do not blow their whistles very often, sites are tight, and wifi is horrible. My main reason for the 6 rating is the size of the site and the wifi. Convenient to Banff are attractions. If you want wifi I suggest trying another rv park. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

If you can get a site along Spring Creek, it is to your advantage. Others are only average. Creekside sites back onto Spring creek and offer a lovely view and the sound of water flowing. While fairly compact, the alloted areas are adquate and could be fairly tight for bigger units. Canmore has exploded in recent years and is on the way to becoming another Banff. Streets are crowded with tourists and shoppers. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The views, from anywhere in the campground, are lovely. Canmore is a great little town, only about one mile away. There are a few large off-leash areas in the municipality as well--great for dog owners. But the campground itself is, well, unpleasant. Despite a patch of grass between sites, they are very close to each other (almost the worst we've ever seen). Our picnic table was literally over our neighbour's sewer connection. Most sites aren't very long and will only fit a big rig, no vehicle. Since there's no overflow parking available, everybody's parked haphazardly on the streets (toads, pickup trucks...). Not only is it unsightly, it's also quite dangerous for young children because the permanent residents living at the back of the park tend to drive much too fast going through the RV area. FHU worked well, strong Rogers cell signal. No cable and nothing we could find over the air. We would not come back given a choice, but it's still about the best campground in the Canmore area. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Try to go to the visitor centre early during your stay. There's a lot to see and do around Canmore!

The good reviews of this RV Campground and its closeness to Canmore brought us in. We stayed one night. Our spot backed onto the creek, the creek was lovely. The other people staying here were lovely. The washrooms were clean. I give this RV campground 2 stars for the reasons above. Now, would I stay again ? not on your life ? why ? the sites are equivalent to each RV being a sardine, and the whole site is a sardine can. You are so close you can hear EVERYTHING in the RV next to you. Your spot of grass is so small and so close to next RV you better be prepared to spend all the time in your RV. There is nothing relaxing or enjoyable about staying at this RV campground. Do yourself a favor and choose another spot. This place is not about your comfort or enjoyment or comfort during your stay, it's about profit and how many RV's c an they jam into a postage stamp. The train is noisy and shook our trailer and woke us up at least 3x that night. Our trailer pad went from creek to front street, so people and vehicles were mere inches from where we slept. It was impossible to park, and we had our SUV jammed up in front, ridiculous, like a LA freeway traffic jam, I've never experienced anything as laughable ! but heh, if you're there to party in Canmore and that's all that matters is that you have a crash pad, it's the spot for you ! DO NOT RECOMMEND and do not understand why this place gets rated positively ! Front office staff are nice, but seem stressed and I can see why ahahahahaha what a freakin zoo !

This campground was not as nice as we had hoped. Very muddy and full of large puddles when we got there. Lots of permanent residents in trailers are at the back of the campground and these people come and go through the park at all hours of the day and night, usually driving very fast. The Wi-Fi was horrible! I had to go to the picnic table behind the office just to get connected, and sometimes I could keep the connection when I went back to my RV but not for very long. It was really frustrating. They did not have cable so if the site was blocked by trees you couldn't get any TV reception at all. The location was right by a stream so that was nice. Sites were very narrow. You could walk on a nice trail into town. Lots of construction noise where they were building condos on the property next to RV park. We left early due to the crazy crowds in Banff and Canmore. Would not stay here again. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here for 3 nights and had a back in site by the peaceful stream. It's a very crowded park and the campers are packed in, but it's clean at least where the overnighters are. The majority of campers/homes there are permanent, but the overnight section is very clean. The office staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

We liked this park. It was close to town and wonderful walking paths to take with my dog. We stayed near the playground which was a little noisy but overall, not bad. We found everyone to be friendly and helpful. Level site. Got our dog groomed at: Pawsh Pooch Spaw - super. Great gourmet deli: Valbella - delicious foods for grilling. We travel in a motor-coach and would come back again if in the area. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent park! Bathrooms very clean but slightly outdated, WiFi spotty. Our site was an older narrow one (there are wider sites). Quiet, train tracks nearby, but the trains did not blow their horns so they did not wake us. Friendly staff. So nice here that we stayed an extra night. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We camped at Spring Creek RV park over the May long weekend in a 50 amp pull through site. The rate shown does not include tax or any discounts (none offered or advertised). The campground is older and spaces are quite narrow but fairly level gravel pads long enough to hold our 41' RV. It is located less than 1 km from the trans Canada highway so there was some noise but not enough to spoil it for us. Spring Creek runs along the northern edge of the campground as does the railroad track. There is also a pleasant short walk leading back into Canmore town centre along the side of the creek. Seeing as it was a long weekend, the railroad wasn't too busy but there is definitely some noise from the rolling stock, which in this part of the continent. It can take 10 or so minutes to pass through. Only a few hundred meters away is a helicopter company running tourist flights into the mountain. This wasn't a problem for me because I enjoy listening to a helicopter turbine engine start and the rotor sound as they take off. Being an older site the facilities were a little tired looking although clean and functional. The washrooms had three pay-to-use shower cubicles and one toilet stall. The interior was clean but again, dated. Freshly painted block walls and white gloss painted plywood doors, nothing smart or close to modern. With that said, the water in the hand basins was very hot and a good pressure. I didn't use the showers, instead, electing to use the on board shower we already have. One thing I did notice was they did not appear to be too big and access for the disabled may be more challenging than other places. A laundry is available but we didn't use this or even take a look at it. Each site appears to be equipped with a shallow block built fire ring and a weathered picnic table with bench seating. Although there are fire pits there was a sign indicating that no fire wood was for sale. Whether this is a temporary glitch or a regular thing, I don't know. Our pull through was equipped with a 30/50 amp pedestal, a tap for water and a capped sewer drop. These all appeared to be working as designed and you can drink the water as there is no after taste. Apparently there is WiFi. It shows as being a signal I can connect to without a password and I can see the signal strength indicator on my iPad. However, even though I'm shown as connected it is so painfully slow I have yet to be able to open any email or web site using it. I have now resorted to using the personal hotspot created by my phone. The campground is about a 1km walk along the creek from Canmore town centre. This is a well established tourist town nestled in the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies. The mountain views from our site were spectacular. Canmore has several excellent grocery stores and restaurants but if you need RV spares, and I did, there is nothing doing. It is also outside of the Banff National Park so no park pass was required. Head a few km further west and you need to buy the pass if you intend to stop in the park. If you're just passing through and heading straight into BC along the trans Canada then, again you don't need to buy one. Some of the campground has been developed into condos. Whether this is in the long term plan for the remaining part I wouldn't know but I also wouldn't be surprised. Being as it was a long weekend, there was no construction taking place at the condo development but my guess is that 'under normal conditions' there will be some construction noise. Being less than an hour from home and in the mountains we may camp here again for an occasional weekend but nothing more. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I spent 7 nights at this RV park and used it as a base while exploring Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks. Staff was friendly and helpful, site was level and hook-ups worked fine. This is a busy park. Only negatives for me were traffic noise in the park itself and occasional Wi-Fi outages. Location makes it handy for grocery shopping, restaurants, etc. Would definitely consider staying here again. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Modern , clean , beautiful view of the mountains. Sites are somewhat small, had to maneuver our motorhome around a bit in order to get the slides out. Big rig friendly. Staff friendly. Close to town, a nice walk. If you love mountains, the view is well worth the price! We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Parts of this park are beautifully landscaped and maintained, and parts are a just a tad shabby. The laundry and washrooms were fine, and the staff was great. We thought it wasn’t worth the high fees, especially since the Wi-Fi didn’t work. The people are wonderful in Canada. But, I guess, as Californians, we were a bit shocked by the high prices. Canmore itself is a very charming town, and a good “jumping off” point for visiting the magnificent Canadian Rockies. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.
