The Fairmont Hotsprings Resort RV park is a very well maintained campground with almost all the amenities you could want. There is a large hotsprings pool plus separate cold water diving and lap pools closeby to the RV park. Hot showers and washroom facilities are available as well as an upscale restaurant in the lodge. The deluxe sites are located more in the open area of the park.
Close to nearby Lake Louise, this RV Park in situated in a beautiful, dense forest area with 189 pull-through sites in the summer and 30 various ones in the winter. Some sites are twin sites (two units per spur). A sani-dump station is available as well as 30 amp power hook-ups, flush toilets, showers, and recycling bins. It was quite snowy here still in March 2005 so no water was available at the sites, but you can refill your tanks at the washroom H20 room. The short drive up to Lake Louise delivers you to a very scenic lake.
This campground is located in the scenic small town of Waterton surrounded by mountain peaks. The Waterton lakes are very beautiful and closeby. It is a short walk to shops and restaurants from the park. You can drive up the hill to visit the Prince of Wales Hotel and take pictures of the townsite, lakes and mountains on the grounds behind the hotel. The grand hotel does close earlier in the fall so keep that in mind. The weather was quite cold and windy during the Thanksgiving weekend in October so we had to dress warmly. Overall the RV park met all our expectations.
We stayed at the Lost Lemon RV Park in Blairmore, Alberta (near the Frank Slide) in March 2005. We arrived at about 9:30 pm, and the friendly owners booked us in and even helped guide us into our rv spot. The German-speaking park owners have owned the park for two years and are originally from Switzerland. You do have to cross a narrow bridge to enter the park, but we didn't have a problem in our 33 foot Class A motorhome. In the summertime, there seems to be excellent fishing at the river. There are pictures on the Lost Lemon website. We liked the park and owners very much, but the only problem was the occasional freight train that passes by across the river a couple times at night. The trains tend to blast their horns when crossing roads so it was difficult to have a restful sleep. Other than that, the RV park, facilities, and owners were all great. We just wished the trains were not so noisy. If there were no trains, I would have rated this RV park a 7 or 8.
