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. We camped at Wapiti Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is between the highway and the train tracks. No dump station but you can dump at the Visitors Centre next door. All you get is 15 amp power for your fee. We won't camp here again unless we're desperate. We camped at Wapiti Campground in a Motorhome.

I was able to select a site first before registering. Water available from a tap near site 3. First site chosen (#3) was very unlevel so chose another one (#1). The electrical pedestal cover plate was off exposing the connection to the elements. The campground manager was friendly enough, but he could have shown more sense when burning a pile of wood in his fire ring and smoking us out. There was noise from both the Trans Canada highway and the trains nearby. There is no dump station at this campground. Go to the Travel Alberta Info Centre next door. I would not go back to this campground if in the area again. We camped at Wapiti Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a city (Canmore) owned campground just outside the boundary of Banff National Park and known only to locals. It is certainly worth a try if the other main campground is full. Canmore is a great place to visit in the Banff National Park. Even though there is no sewer dump within the park, it is next door to the Visitor Center which does have a free sewer available. Physical address is 100 Ray McBride St., Canmore, Alberta. It is open from May 1 through October 15 each year. There are 47 RV sites and 36 tent sites. Additional contact number is (866) 366-2267. We camped at Wapiti Campground in a Motorhome.
