I really enjoyed this park. The site areas are semi- mowed in an area big enough to keep the mosquito's down. We had Elk in the campground every day. One day we had a bear pass through. The folks who were our neighbors were really nice. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

This lovely quiet wooded campground is only 2 km south of the town of Jasper. There are fire and no fire loops, and sites range from totally unserviced to fully serviced (30w E, W, S). There is considerable variability as to site size and privacy. Full service sites seem to have the least privacy and tend to be small. We were in loop 30 (unserviced, no fires) and the sites were spacious and offered good privacy. There are two shower buildings with 6 showers each, one for men and the other for women to service the 700+ campsites. Each loop has a washroom with toilets, sinks with hot & cold water, electric outlets, as well as an outdoor sink for washing dishes. The dump station can accommodate 8 RVs at one time, but black tank flushes are not possible as the non-potable water hose does not have a proper fitting. There is no WiFi, but cell phone coverage is good throughout the campground. Free WiFi is available at the municipal library (open daily expect Sun). Paid WiFi ($2/20min) is available at the laundromat on Patricia St. The PetroCanada, next to Robinsons grocery store on Connaught Dr sells propane by the pound. Both of the PetroCanada stations and the Shell on Connaught sell diesel. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites are mostly dirt with a gravel pad. They are well spaced and some loops will have elk that hang out in them. We were in loop 61 and the elk were there almost every day.

Free firewood is awesome. Showers were marginally clean. The Showers are a long walk depending on where you stay. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

First off, I would highly recommend making reservations in advance, if you are planning a visit to Jasper in high season (summer). We didn't have any reservations before we left home. Thankfully, we stopped at the welcome/information center right on hwy 4, shortly after we crossed the Canadian border from Montana. Not only was there a ton of information available, but they offered help with reservations, at no cost.

The woman there was able to book us into both Banff and Jasper, with 4 nights in Jasper. We loved the town of Jasper, and appreciated the fact that it was alot less busy than Banff. But the cg could definitely use some improvements! The interior roads were terrible, very bumpy with lots of pot holes. Thankfully we didn't get any rain on our visit, otherwise, it really would have been a mess!

While sites weren't close, the layout just left it feeling less than private. Lots of trees, and also plenty of elk, too! They were nightly visitors to the cg. Be careful though! The ranger checking us in told us that the week before, an elk attacked a dog. Always keep your dog on a leash and attended at all times!

Note that nightly rate does not include $11 (Canadian) booking fee, or Canadian Park Pass. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit the sky tram at Whistler's Mountain. Ride to the top for amazing views! We bought the $59 (Canadian) per person package, which included the tram ride and dinner on top of the mountain. It was one of the highlights of our entire trip!

Whistlers campground has fully serviced sites but we stayed in an unserviced site because we reserved late. The website reservation system is excellent. All of the public toilets (there are lots) have flush toilets and hot water as well as a large outside sink for tenters to wash up dishes. There are fewer shower sites but they have many stalls and no charge. The sani-dump facility was large, included in the camping fee and very clean. The Whistlers campground is an easy bicycle to Jasper townsite. Our site 26KK backed onto a large meadow and we had elk walking by our window. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. Nicely wooded area area with FHU in some of the loops. Pull through sites for big rigs with generous space. The concept of buying a burning permit and then having a big pile of free firewood works great. Although the campground is close to the main road it was was not noticeable. There were some potholes on the main road that should be fixed. If we weren't heading up to Alaska, we would have gladly stayed several more nights. Reservations are a must for this park especially in July. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

This is the 4th time we have stayed here and would return again if in the area. We had a pull-thru full hook-up site and no close neighbors. We made the reservations immediately when on-line reservations opened up in April and it was well worth the effort. The interior roads are in very poor condition all through the campground. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely setting. Don't count on a full set up at your site. Just count on electricity and you will be happy knowing that you may need to use the dump/water center which is ample. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

We are from US and this is our second visit with first in 2007. We loved this campgound in 2007 and still love it today. We have measured all Nat'l parks against Jasper's Whistler and nothing equals it. 2 elk appeared and grazed in campground. Next day deer came out. The sites are spacious with plenty of trees, shrubs between. It is simply awesome! Price does not include the daily rate charged by Parcs Canada for entrance into Icefield Parkway. As soon as online reservations opened I reserved. When we checked in there was a sign indicating campground was full. There is an online booking fee which I included in the price. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Decided late to stay here. Could not get a site with hookups. But we were very pleasantly surprised. Lots of room to maneuver a 42 ft with towed. Had to back in, but room for Jeep in front. Would certainly stay here again. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

We drove into the town of Jasper, two main tourist streets, about the same stuff as most mountain tourist towns. But if you get off those two streets, it is a very pretty town.

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. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the closest campground to town. If you can, get a full services site as they are in much better condition than the unserviced. The interior roads have a lot of potholes. The campground itself has beautiful trees and we always stay here when we are in Jasper National Park. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.
