This is a good city campground. The water was a long way from our site but they provided a hose that reached our hose, so it worked. No sewer (there is a dump station), the electric is 30amp and worked. Lots of trains so if you are sensitive to noise this could be a problem. There are no pull thru sites ours was a large back-in located right next to the office, so there was lots of walking and drive by activity. The upside the wifi worked. The sites vary greatly in size so when making reservations be sure to reserve accordingly, We would stay here again. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is about an hour drive to Lake Louise. The crowds where overwhelming but we parked and ate at the lodge which was a blessing. Lots to do in the area worth 5-7 days in the area if you can stand the crowds in the summer.

Called and out site was available so they let us check in early. Lovely spot, right on the river BUT across from the railroad tracks. The trains run 24/7 and every 20 minutes. A real challenge at night. School across the street and the kids wander through the sites. The water spigot was 25 meters away so they provided long hose. Power was good. No sewer so no one's going to spend a long time here. Showers were clean and $1 for 6 minutes. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of hiking close by, trail through town, waterfalls. Beautiful and scenic area. Will return but not stay here because of the trains.

We stayed 1 night in a site on the river. The sites are well used and could use a little TLC. The water and power vary and are not necessarily together. In our case we could not reach the water. Other sites vary from tent sites to pull-through's and configurations can be quite unusual. The river trail is quite nice but others were closed due to bears in the area. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

July 31, Monday Town of Golden Municipal Campground, 70 sites, hookups and no hookups, $42, site 2, WiFi This campground is in the town of Golden, BC between Glacier National Park and Yoho National Park. It is run by the town and located on the river which you can walk to but can't see from your site because of a dike. Railroad tracks are across the river and you can hear the trains but they did not bother us. There are also tent sites in the woods. Many of the sites along the river are narrow and right next to others. It is located in a busy area with a school across the street. Check in was easy and there is a little store at the office. Showers and the laundromat are next to the office and there is a second bathhouse closer to the wood sites. This campground filled up at night especially now being summer time. The washers/dryers/ showers would not accept our quarters and the office didn't have anything to exchange it. This is a convenient town to get gas and food before one heads into Lake Louise. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a fairly typical municipal campground with side-by-sides and having little privacy. As their website says, the campground is located next to Kicking Horse River, which is a pleasant place to sit and contemplate the milky water as it flows by. However, their ad does not mention that on the other side of the river are train tracks, on which trains run throughout the night - bring earplugs. All sites have a picnic table and fire pit, and firewood($) is available at their small store. Electric and water connections require 60 feet of hose/cord. Hot showers are $1/6 min. There is free WiFi, but it is extremely slow. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Golden has everything an RVer requires, including diesel, propane by the pound, grocery and hardware stores, etc. I found it best to use my engine brake for most of the drive along Hwy # 1 from Lake Louise to Golden. And consider adhering to the reduced speed limits especially near the south-western end of the highway with all its hairpin turns. If you are heading to Radium/Kootenay, the drive along Hwy 95 is most pleasant.

Gravel sites, very crowded, very busy, no TV(0) channels, Wi-Fi at office only. Two bathhouses, one old and really bad, one good but a far walk. Some hookups require a 50 foot hose, electric the same way. An international flavor at this park, people from everywhere. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is along side the Kicking Horse River and a great walking path. Unfortunately, it is also across the river from trains that seemed to be coming by very frequently. We were able to get WiFi at our site with help from a router booster. Sites are fairly good sized and we had a site by the river. It was a good base for exploring Canadian National Parks. Staff friendly and helpful. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this place! Right along the Kicking Horse river, beautiful spot. Only down-side was no sewer hook-up on site. Lots of room, great scenery, friendly staff, highly recommended campground. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This Campground DOES have a Sani Dump unlike the other reviewer said. It has 30 amp and water and 15 amp and water just no sani at the sites. Lots of nicely treed sites for tenters. There have been many upgrades; showers in rear wash house are newly tiled. New amenity hub with RV parts, convenience store, even pizza delivery. Laundry and FREE WiFi! Beautiful setting on the Kicking Horse River near all downtown amenities; perfect for families with new splash park across the street and municipal pool. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The rate is lower due to no sewer hookup and the trains going by very frequently. Was very happy I sleep with earplugs!! Nice park for overnight if you don't mind trains and don't have to dump. Would stay overnight here again. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was rather disappointing, although we should have been warned by the name 'Municipal'. It is located along the road, across from a school building. Thankfully it is a dead end road, and the part in the back is for campers only, on two sides of the road. The sound of the river is nice, the screaming noises made by trains are horrible. The owners are very kind, and are obviously willing to give good service. It is a pity that one has to pay for a Wi-Fi connection. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.
