If the major campgrounds of Jasper are full, the rangers will open up this area. There is plenty of space, so don't worry about coming late in the day... $15.70 per vehicle. This is the only place around Jasper right now for which you don't have to pay the fire permit.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
stayed 2 nights, huge area, lots of space, noises the whole night, trucks on the hwy and train (no horn), 16,75$, places with table, no fire allowed, no trees, less privat, perfect, when campsites fullReport Check-In

Huge site with many, many spots! Beautiful view of the night sky with mountain silhouette in the distance. The train noises didn’t bother us at all. Spent two nights here and even saw a huge elk on our first day driving in.Report Check-In
Windy and very open. Our site B81 has a few bushes around, and the lower numbers are definitely better. Many spots are completely open. It is very busy, but it is a Saturday of the Civic Holiday. Nice and clean outhouses. There are still spots available. Very limited signal. Not a bad spot for just one night.Report Check-In
Tons of Mosquitos, apart from that very nice. The tent area is further away from the train Tricks and more between trees.
There are more and less Private spots and a lot of space, should be enough room for anyone.
Confirming all the others comments! Cheapest place in the area, plenty of spots! We sow a deer in the campground, was just 20mt from our van, and the day before some freidns sow a black bear just at the entrance of the campground! Amazing nature! Only problem, you can hear the trains, and they pass all day long starting from early morning!Report Check-In
All other CGs full and lots of spaces to choose from here. Right now 16.75/night. Self registry. grass patch with table between each site. Lots of room and nice surroundings! Potable water but you cannot fill RV tank as it is only available in totes.Report Check-In
Surprisingly a great campground for overflow. Stayed here Canada Day weekend and had plenty of sites to chose from.Report Check-In
Nice spot, $16.75 CD a night. Tables, pit toilets, potable water. Lots of sites. Basic but nice, especially when you show up on a Saturday with no reservations. Spotty Verizon service.Report Check-In
Pas encore ouvert!!! Il y a 3 semaines de retard sur la saison d’étéReport Check-In
Really nice campground and at the moment by far the cheapest place (16$) around jasper, because you have to pay on all the other places for the fire permit (around 8$). There is even some reception close to the entrance..Report Check-In
Très bel emplacement pour dormir. Nous sommes restées 2 nuits et avons eu aucun problème. Eau potable, toilettes et poubelle. Endroit très bien entretenu et tranquille. Aucun réseau cellulaire, mais près de Jasper (20 minutes)Report Check-In
Lots of space after all other options are full. Nice quite night, but the mossies are bad, when there's no wind.Report Check-In
A bit unfair to call this a 'parking lot' - it's not amazing but better than many RV parks we have seen across North America. There is a grass area and a picnic table for each plot. Plenty of room for kids to play, walk dogs etc. It's not bad for an overflow camp. Try to get one of the lower numbered spots which are further away from the train line.Report Check-In
Nice simple campground with amazing views. Very clean, private spots and for 16.05$, potable water, pit-toilets and picnic tables. Friendly Rangers on the entrance to take the fees. Would stay again.Report Check-In
Grand stationnement pour VR ou tente
Coin à l abri ( arbre)
Pas très intime
everything was said already. If all CG are fully booked here you will find a place. Try to keep away from railway.
No phone reception.
As descripted ... Very simple, no showers ...Report Check-In
15,70$ you can pay cash or with card at the entrance. Spots have a picnic table. Not too bad for an overflow campground. Washrooms are clean. No showers.Report Check-In
Un peu à l’extérieur de Jasper mais parfait si vous avez un yo-yo. Ce stationnement-camping overflow est beaucoup plus beau que celui de Lac Louise. On vous assigne un emplacement avec table à pique-nique. Feu interdit. Entouré de montagnes. C’était parfait pour nous. Y avons passé 2 nuits pour prendre le temps de visiter Jasper et les environs.Report Check-In
You have to pay - there is a gate with Officers. Nice place with cool views and lots of space. Railway noise all the time:(Report Check-In
Clean pit toilets, lot of space, everyone got his own picnic table. Huge space!Report Check-In
Still $15.7, however, reading other reviews, it seems that the park significantly improved this place - there are designated camping spots with picnic tables, toilets, potable waters - it's basically a fully fledged campground.Report Check-In
Large windy Field, near highway, the only good point is the view.
Cant belive i paid for thatReport Check-In
Not free. You pay 15.70 for previlage of parking in a big parking lot. Seriously disappointing such a famous park where so much tourism comes from all around the world.Report Check-In
We tried to go to the Overflow campground because the signs said the Snaring River Campground was full. When we got there it was closed, so we tried our luck in the Snaring River Campground and found an empty spot, even if the signs said it was full. Same price.Report Check-In
Everything already said ☺ on long weekends you may have a special challenge. The box for self registration is maybe absolutely full so that you are not able to pay
Nothing for railway haters ☺
Technically nothing else than a huge, open gravel parking lot with clean pit toilets. Still 15.70$ with self registration (no matter if tent or RV). Ok for a night if everything else is booked and you would like to stay within the National Park. The information says that lot will be closed every day at 11am, so you are requested to leave by then. Train & street noise all night. Pay showers available downtown Jasper.Report Check-In
Lovely overflow area and nice that something like this is available. Very pretty setting and road/train noise is a non factor. More organized than Lake Louis OF lot as this one had a proper attendant to take our $15.00 but disorganized parking. It’s nice to be able to pick the spot of your choice. Some like shade and trees some prefer more open local to enjoy the 360’ mountain views. There are even a few options along the river.Report Check-In
Very beautiful spot for an overflow campground. not too many people as it's a huge area. spot a grizzly on the road there...Report Check-In
Huge overflow parking, perfect to sleep for cheap (or free) closed to Jasper. Pit toilets, potable water and really nice view.Report Check-In
Very full and summer. But we stay one night. Next railway...Report Check-In
Wonderful views. A little noise from trains and road nearby but not much. No fires on the site. People arrive up to 1.00 am so you can turn up any time it seems. Pay at the entrance in an envelope into safe deposit so no need to book even if the park ranger at the park entrance says otherwise. This was our first official campground and found it quite nice. So would reccomend for over night but not more than two. Looks like you have to drive out to find the walks and hikes etc.Report Check-In
