We actually looked at this campground to use with our 30' 5th wheel but chickened out and thought we would report our observations anyway.

The campground is located on a dense pine covered hillside east of the parkway, up a quarter mile long access road about 2 miles south of the Icefields visitor center or about 1 mile north of the Banff/Jasper Park boundary sign. There is a VERY popular hiking trailhead at the foot of the CG access road that can reduce this part of the road to a single lane at times.

The campsites are short and narrow "shoulder-side-pulloff" type widely scattered around 6 narrow one way roads along the hillside. There is a water fill with threaded faucet and dump station along the exit road at the foot of the hill and we saw 2 other threaded water points scattered in the campground. The CG also had a couple of vault toilets and an open kitchen structure. No cell service, no off air TV just a scenic National Forest type campground.

The park service recommends a 27' maximum length and we saw only one site that was as long as 34', tree-to-tree. It looked to us that the suggested ~27' length limit should apply to the combined length of your rig, meaning a vehicle with a short trailer or a class A/B/C unit no longer than that. Given the narrow interior CG roads (and limited parking space), we thought it would be all but impossible to parallel park a 27' towable with slideouts on any site. It looked to us that you could (carefully) drive/pull any type of unit 30' or less through the lowest road in the CG if you wanted to just pass through and use the water/dump station at the exit.

CG fee was the same as the nearby parking lot at the Icefields visitor center, $15.70 CAD/nite, and an optional daily permit for a fire (including firewood) was an additional $8.80 CAD. Dump fees for non-campers was $9.00 CAD. Flush toilets and free WiFi (with chit from the Jasper National Park desk) available at the Icefields visitors center 2 miles north. We camped at Wilcox Creek Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.
