Free parking overlooking a small pond amidst mountains and glaciers is well worth a night with no hookups! This overflow area is just a huge, paved parking lot, but it's in the right place. Forget hookups, WiFi, laundry, etc and enjoy nature. Bathroom is a pit toilet, but nice and clean. No showers available. This was a good spot to stop for a night, and the price can't be beat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's a parking lot for the Icefields Centre. No services. It was offered for free tonight. I guess because it appears the snowplow hit the registration deposit station so you couldn't leave any money if you tried. In a pinch it works. The view is out of this world, but you have to work hard to find a location flat enough in this slanted paved parking lot to keep from rolling out of bed. Would not recommend unless you really needed a place to park for the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This might just be the best deal in both national parks. Asphalt parking lot but with a view, and what a view it is. You're looking straight up into the glacier. The lot itself is somewhat unlevel but they have a self pay kiosk that you have to put in 15.70 exact change or you can use your credit card. I'm not sure anybody actually checks the lot with the pay stubs, so it is a honor system. For one night we enjoyed it We camped here in a Motorhome.
While traveling along the Icefields Parkway between Lake Louise and Jasper in Alberta, you will find the Columbia Icefield Center in Jasper National Park. This Center is located just below the enormous Athabasca Glacier. The lower parking lot is available for overnight camping for RV's without any hookups. You can visit the museum, dine in the cafeteria or restaurant, view the glaciers, take glacier hikes or ride the spectacular Ice Explorers on the glacier. Pit toilet available after hours when the center closes. Camping below these spectacular landscapes and watching sunsets and sunrises from your RV is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
