We camped here twice within the last 5 weeks. Next season, it will be under new ownership, and we have met the new owner, a very cool guy, who knows a lot about RV repair. The grounds and facilities are well maintained. There is a small café on the premises that serves sourdough pancakes for breakfast, as well as casual lunches and dinners. Every night, in the covered gathering place, there is a pancake toss, which is a hoot. The owner gets everyone who comes involved and it is so much fun. There is a campfire and often there is live entertainment by local talents. High pressure vehicle wash is available, sites are widely spaced, level, and shaded. This place is popular with tent camping groups, maybe because of the covered table area, but also because the management is actively involved with their guests and very welcoming. We would definitely camp here again, and highly recommend the Sourdough.
Have to say this is the best KOA we've ever visited primarily because of our site. We were in site 157. Sites 156, 157, and 158 are awesome. Grass in front of you and then a beautiful view beyond. No other RV within 50 feet. Even if we were not in these sites we would have liked this park. It's about a mile off the highway so it is quiet. There is a small pool and two hot tubs. A staffer come around every evening to see how we are doing and to offer to pick up things for us. To get these great sites I'm sure you have to reserve ahead of time and ask for them. Two were pull-through and one was a back-in. The staff was very friendly and the store seemed well stocked.
Beautiful park. We had elk roaming through our campsite several times. The full service sites are really spaced well and we never felt crowded. We were here during the horrible Southern Alberta floods and had to change our plans. Though the park was 'full', the staff helped us find a spot for a few days waiting to see if we could travel toward Lake Louise - didn't happen and we rerouted to Golden, BC. This is a HUGE campground - but we never felt overwhelmed by it. It's very close to Jasper (a great little town) and the Jasper Tramway. It's about an hour away from the Columbia Ice Fields - another must if you are in the area. We recommend Whistler.
The KOA at Clearwater is a very versatile “campground”. It has lots of places for RV’s, trailers, cabins, and Condo units. WiFi was OK, not great. Most sites were separated by shade trees and bushes and fairly level. They have a decent supply store, and a restaurant. The perimeter has a safety electric fence keeping bears out. The entrance gate is closed at 10pm, also keeping bears out. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good place to stay for white water rafting, and touring Wells Gray Park – a must to visit in this area.
