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.

Tips for other Campers:

The Town of Jasper is a nice walking town. Also if weather is good do the tram.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Jasper is a nice little town with lots of shops and restaurants and wifi access. Check out the Jasper Brewery and for food and beer.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

So much to do in Jasper National Park. Be sure to get over to Maligne Lake and Canyon.

Nice shady pine tree campground. We stayed in loop 63 site D that had a significant walk to the showers. Sites were level and well spaced apart. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Another great park in a Canadian national park. Well located and all hookups worked well. We stayed three nights and had to move after first night because of availability but they were very accommodating. Both spots we had were great. No issues.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. We stayed in the new section which has full services, and the sites are much more spacious and shaded than the old section. Where else can you stay and watch elk roam through your site! We experienced a vehicle problem and had to extend our stay by one night. The campground was full every night , but the staff found a site for us. This is the only place we would stay in Jasper. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Camping price excludes the daily park fees and online reservations (if used). Similar to U.S. National Parks, advance reservations are usually a wise precaution to get the type of accommodations you may desire. Note that the daily entry fees (on top of the nightly camping fee) (annual passes also available) came to $10 per day for the two of us. Various regular, senior, group, and family rates may apply. The park facilities were good, though the paved roads near the camp sites were rather poor. The other park roads (between camp circles) were just fine. On the basis of "value" the provided facilities were fully acceptable, but were expensive in comparison to privately owned facilities we visited elsewhere. The campgrounds, are actually in a park with considerable natural beauty. The shower building was actually at the opposite end of the park, closer to the tent-camping area. We drove to the showers after fixing breakfast before departing on our day's activities. The power-post appeared to have been recently replaced (or upgraded) but only offered 20 and 30 amp power (No 50 amp). Fire Ring can be rented from the campground with additional fee and permit. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Stunning Rocky Mountain scenery. Many Elk (females and offspring) were wandering around in the camping area, browsing on grass.

This is a nice park. Good level sites with good water and electric (some with sewer). No wifi or TV but a good location to visit Jasper and surrounding sights. Very quiet and the day we arrived there were 10-12 elk around the area we camped in. We would stay here again. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

According to the friendly check in person, this is the biggest campground in No. America. Check in went fairly quickly, but had a very long line of vehicles. I would definitely make reservations, if possible. I walked to the front of the cars and checked in by foot. There was a dorm/military like house for showers that was clean but not particularly pleasant. The elk were starting to calve and wander around the camp sites to avoid bears which is cool but scary. There were reports of bear in the campground. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a very large laundromat and nice smallish but well stocked grocery store in Jasper. This is an area of spectacular natural beauty with great hiking and wildlife viewing. Nice coffee shops and restaurants in Jasper to hang out in during the rain storms that we experienced. We saw quite a few bear on the roads.

Great campground. We had full service and a pull-through site. Sites are well spaced and the smell of the pine trees is wonderful. Park staff is very friendly and take the time to explain things about the park before sending you off to your campsite. Roads inside the campground are very bumpy and could use repair. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Tim Horton's in town has fast internet if you want to use non-secured WiFi.

Not bad for a park service. The roads into and out are in need of lots of repair. Very bad. The power was good and the water. Great place to see all the cool things in the area. Quite. Not much else there. Just a good place to stay. Pretty level spot. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.
