We stayed at Mt. Kidd for 15 nights starting the last week of July through the August long weekend. Even though the campground was close to being full, it was quiet at night and there were no noise or other issues. This is a great family campground as there are numerous playgrounds, trails within the park, sports field, wading pool, and a kids nature program.

The campground is well maintained and has good amenities including very clean washrooms and showers. We stayed in a full service site and requested a "less treed site" so we had good satellite reception and were close enough to get WiFi reception although it was weak. The price is a bit high at just over $50 CDN a night after taxes and reservation fees although the sites are large and most are quite private.

You are in the mountains at about 5000 ft. so expect cool evenings and ever changing weather. Unfortunately there were bears in the area so many of the trails in the campground were closed. You had to drive to get to good hiking spots. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Motorhome.

We normally stay in either Bow Valley Provincial Park campground or Boulton Creek. This time we decided to stay at Mount Kidd for the first time in a long while. We arrived at 6 pm Friday night to find the campers centre closed. They do prepare you for that on their website. This means no firewood for the night, unless you feel like driving to the Fortress Mtn gas station. We didn't. This also means that campers don't check in with campground staff, which I think causes a problem. The campground is well maintain and the scenery is beautiful without a doubt. Saturday night, a very loud party began at around 10 pm and ended at 2 am. We were really unable to do anything other than send an e-mail to management. The phone line is not answered (at least the one we knew of) and there is no voice mail. Very disappointed. This ruined our weekend, when we were expecting peace and quiet. Reservation staff at least listened to our complaints in the morning. We will not be back. We have never at this problem at either of the provincial parks mentioned above. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park is very peaceful and neatly kept. Our back-in site was large and very treed. Full serviced, 30 amps but the Wi-Fi only works in the Camping Center. No satellite reception due to the trees, and we did not try the cable TV. Staff was attentive and promptly took care of any of our needs. Easily accessible to hiking trails and the river. Very quiet and serene. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park if you accept the fact that you are up in the high country and you cannot have city amenities . It was very peaceful when we were there and the weather cooperated to the extent that it didn't snow. The facilities were well looked after and the staff did their best to accommodate you. Maintenance people did look after your concerns and addresses problems ( like the guy using eves trough for his sewer drain - yuck!!) immediately when they were brought to their attention. We would return and recommend this park to our friends. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great weekend / campground was clean / very well treed / restrooms clean / lots size very large / WI-FI very, very poor, only received weak signal at campers centre / cable vision ok, but limited channels. The biggest disappointment were the hot tubs. They are not is working order, so are closed. I was told campground was lease from the government of Alberta and they do not want to fix the problem, neither does the lessee. Well someone has to get their act together and repair the hot tubs. Overall 7 out of 10 due hot tub closure. Could be a 10 and one of the nicest campground in western Canada, a gem. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park very close to Calgary. It has full service sites which are easy to get into, so great place to start off learning how to park your unit. Some of the full service sites claim to have cable TV, but you get about 3 channels. There is Wi-Fi, but for a fee only, so we have not tried it. There is a very shallow wading pool for small children only, our kids tried it when they were 8 and 9 and found it to be too shallow for their needs. There are also hot tubs which have been out of order for a few years now, with what seems to be no plans to have them working again. All in all though we love this park and camp here very often - it is clean and well cared for and the staff are very friendly. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

While this is a well kept family friendly park but felt the sites (loop E) were too close to each other with only a few trees separating us. We felt $43.00 per night was a bit expensive when just down the road we stayed in a Provincial campground with 30 amp and water that were well spaced out for $35.00 per night. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campsite has lots of room for RV and tent. The sites are very clean, and well maintained. They charge extra for Wi-Fi, but you need to connect at the office only, it is not available throughout the park. Found the rate of $49.00 per night expensive, and the staff very young, but still worth the stay. We would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Location is fabulous with fantastic scenery surrounding this park. The park is well maintained and clean. Beyond that, this park has some significant issues that you should be aware of if contemplating a stay. First, this is a decidedly family-oriented park, and people with kids positively love the place. We didn't mind the din of a park full of happy kids, but if you are looking for a quiet place and want to hear the eagles cry or the chipmunks chirp, forget it. Getting reservations here is especially difficult due to it's reservation policies and practices that favor week-long stays or longer. (If you only want 1 or 2 nights, you have to wait until after a set date and by then most of the park is full-up or only poor sites are left to be reserved). Next, the sites are spacious, but tightly spaced and the loop roads are NARROW, making maneuvering into most sites a real challenge. Even accomplished drivers that normally have no trouble backing in a fifth wheel or large motorhome will find it impossible to keep the trees off the side of your rig. VERY tight and park gets a marginal Big-Rig Friendly rating. I would say that at least half the site do NOT merit the classification of Big-Rig Accessible. Wi-Fi and CATV at this park are essentially worthless. There is a fairly well-stocked store and the many recreational facilities here are good. There are few/no dining options in the area, so it's a hot dog or frozen dinner from the camp store if you didn't plan for your meals while here. We might stay here again, but our experience leads us to believe that if we are not staying for a whole week, we would be unlikely to get reservations for a site we would fit into or could maneuver into. That said, we are quite unlikely to stay here again, even though it is a scenic and well-maintained park. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The spaces are nice and long but beware the widths. They are, in many spaces very narrow. Dirt and not level. Trees in between spaces provided some privacy. There are a lot of trees and some of the spots are difficult to get into if you have a good sized motorhome or 5th wheel. We pulled in and had problems with the trees, managed to get in and the owner of the motorhome across from us came out and asked if we could move back more in our spot because otherwise he wouldn't be able to get out. Too many trees to get internet or TV. Cable TV was very poor quality with only 4 channels. Only one with decent reception was the sports channel. Misleading about the WiFi, only get it in some spots in section A, according to the office (we were in B) and it wasn't even working at the office. It was down the 3 days we were here. Would not stay here again. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pros: All 200+ sites are awesome with heated washrooms, best showers in any campground I've ever been, beautiful scenery, great bike and running trails (look out for the bears). Cons: It is pricey, the central laundry location is quite a jaunt, the swimming pool is really just a wading pool. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful mountain setting, and well maintained private sites. Staff are always friendly. We love to camp here with our dogs as the sites are so large and surrounded by trees. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Mt. Kidd for 3 weekends this winter. Yes, the park is open during the winter season. There are several loops open with electric hook ups only. Washrooms are only located in the Camper's Center but are accessible 24 hours a day. Showers, laundry, hot tubs, store, and lounge are all still in operation. The scenery is even more spectacular in the winter months and the view from the hot tubs is incredible. Use caution when walking though. The sites and pathways can be quite icy. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spectacular mountain views and lots of wildlife here. A clean, well kept park, with very accommodating staff. You can wash your rig if you want, at no charge. There are large sites, very wooded, each with fire pit and picnic table. They sell wood at the park for $6 to $8.00. Watch the trees when pulling into your site. It is not very close to Banff Springs (60 km) but we really liked the park. Downside is the booking fee of $8.00 if you make a reservation. We came without reservations and the fee was waived since they had plenty of room. Wi-fi is $8.00 per day and you might have to go to the office to get reception. We did not use the internet for that reason. Cable TV is a joke: you get three or four channels depending on the weather and there is nothing worth watching. Stayed here two nights and enjoyed the beauty of Banff Springs, Lake Louise and took the gondola up the mountain at Banff. Wow!! What a view!! We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
