5 Parks near Jasper National Park, Alberta
Jun 2011 - $49.00
Large, spacious drive-through sites, although in a very treed environment. Bears and elk have been problems, but we did not see any of them. It is a bit pricey for what you get, however there is only one shower for campground. - dandd

Excellent campground - nearest to Miette Hot Springs. No services, no TV, no satellite radio, no cell phone coverage. Very big sites - fairly level. Road rather narrow for 40' motor home with toad but passable. Only complaint - signage not adequate off main Jasper Park Road and off side road passing campground. We passed the first turnoff and had to travel 5 miles + before able to do a U turn with toad attached. Sign is about 50 feet before turnoff to campgrounds and until you turn a bend, the gate is not obvious. - Joe Chernow

Sites are nicely separated. We had electric, no water or sewer. Sites were in loops and in the middle are trees with grass where one night a group of elk made camp. Lots of trees so plenty of shade. Bike trails from camp will take you in town. Stayed four nights, would definitely come back. - pamandtina

Nice wooded spacious campsites. Close to Jasper that offers all the tourist trappings.
Had full hookups and everything functioned the way it suppose to.
The park offers a nice trail that runs through the center, observed Caribou/Elk lounging about the campsites. - RailwayRog

This is a great National Park experience (the US National Park Service could learn from this). This is the only full service RV park in the Jasper but it is a jewel. The forested campground is quite large. All roads and campsites are dirt. Our pull thru site was a little tight with trees for our 3 slides. But with a little patience we were able to position our rig between the trees. Don't get me wrong - the trees are what make this campground wonderful. There is no wifi in the campground but all of the restaurants in the town of Jasper had fast free wifi. The town of Jasper was quaint and enjoyable - the US NPS could also learn form this. The only problem with the campground is all of the potholes in the access road. If the roads had been graded we would have given this campground a 10.
The rate quoted includes an $11 online reservation fee spread across the the 2 nites we stayed but did not include the Canadian National Park fee of $9 per senior per day. This campground sells out fast - make your reservation early. - lyzzards

Nothing negative to say about this park. Within walking distance to the Athabasca River. Group campfires with performances by nature analysts and park wardens happen daily. Large, spacious sites with hookups, firepits and lots of privacy. About 15km from downtown Jasper. - Jaclyn

A little disappointed with this one. First off one of the two roads heading in were very bumpy, so much so that we had to slow down to a snail's pace. The campground itself was quite nice as far as layout and general appeal. The site we had (and saw many others this way) was not very good. It was hard to back into (unless you're good at backing in a "s" pattern) and it was too narrow. Could not open our awning more than three feet. There was a fire pit and picnic table behind a barrier at the rear of the site though. If I ever return to Jasper I will not stay here again. - dabat

First stayed in electrical parking lot: a paved lot with lines. Had nice washroom and showers. Then had an interior site with very large sites, fire ring, picnic table. But interior roads range from fair to poor. The interior rooms are old and have no showers. No water or sewer at the site. Park is very picturesque, we would return. - janel323

This campground is open year round. In the WINTER it is just the paved parking lot that is open. They do plow it out. With 30 amp plugs, new bathrooms put in a few years back. Always have stayed in the WINTER mostly as an over night spot. Sani dump in town. If the snow isn't deep you can walk to the river and around the rest of the campground. Normally don't have anyone else staying in the WINTER. People do use the bathrooms as a rest stop. Have no idea what it is like in the summer with people around. Looks like everyone could be in there tight. - Full-time Canadian RVer

We stayed in the overflow area which is paved loop, with electric hookup. there was a bath house right in the area, very convenient. Super clean. No charge for the shower, but there was no control of the water and it was HOT! Had ellk wander through the lot in the morning and saw many more bedded down on the way out. We didn't have a reservation and we were glad to get a space in the park. - Wyboo

No change from previous reviews except the price has crept up a little. You register at an unstaffed kiosk then park wherever you like in the lower north parking lot. You can get pretty close to level around the parking lot edges but in other areas, you'll be so unlevel that you probably won't want to put out your slides. You can go indoors at the visitor center to use the restrooms. Generator hours are limited to a couple of hours in the evening and a couple in the morning. They only enforce the generator hours if someone complains. You'll have no cell phone or wifi and, of course, no services at all beyond the parking spot. Still, you can't beat the views! - Danno

You stay there mainly for the view, and for the experience. Campground is actually the RV parking of the visitors center, which becomes a Parks Canada no-service campground for the night.
No service. But the view is incredible. Where else will you see 5 glaciers and 9000-feet mountains when looking out your window?
Heed all security warning, there ARE some black bears in the area... - Merveilleuse

Hard to rate the service and cleanliness. As previous reviews have stated this is just a huge asphalt parking lot for RVer's stopping to see the glaciers. We dry camped here for 2 nights with glaciers right out our back window. Am sure there is not another spot like it in the world. We could walk to the visitor center and catch the tours to the Skywalk and Athabasca glacier and we were able to take our time exploring the Icefields Parkway from each direction. Would gladly have paid more for this stop. - PRG
