Description

A beautiful riverside National Park campsite with tables and fire-pits. Despite the name, there were actually less mosquitoes here than at other campsites along the Icefields Parkway (though this is in early June). Surrounded by beautiful mountains and close to Bow Lake. $18.75 ($9.25 for fire permit). Open until mid-October.

Absolutely loved this quiet little campground. It’s a first come/self serve kind of place. A nice place to stop on your drive to Jasper/Banff. The creek flows through the campground, super fresh glacier water. We even used it for cooking ! And super cheap, $18 a night.

This place was fully booked but there is an overflow car park for the same price than a regular campsite!

overflow camping is available at a fee of having a regular camp spot.
great views of the mountains and a creek that runs through.

Most sites shaded in the trees but some overflow or oversize rigs can park along the huge open area. Tables and fire rings. $18.75 plus $9.25 for permit which includes the firewood. Some spots along the stream. 14 day max stay. FCFS

We arrived 06/30/2023 before noon and could get a spot. Nice place with pit toilets, table, fire pit and potable water. No showers but a river. If you cant get a spot, you can still stay in the parking slot.

Good spot close enough to lake Louise / Banff but far from the crowds. Plenty of firewood. Right on the water!

I was there on June 6th. It was closed as were numerous campgrounds in the area. I was told they were not ready

Basic, good for a night. Right by the HW.

As described - seemed like half of all places were reserved but many were just old stubs that people didn't take off. Remove your stubs from the posts when you leave, people!

this location is there is overflow parking so if you can’t find a camp site you can park somewhere and just pay the fees for the night. Large open area big enough for big rigs

This place is as described. One thing to add is there is overflow camping here in the large parking area near the cooking building. It says so on the sign where you pay and the price is actually the same as if you had a real spot - $18.75.

Very nice place. Several parking spaces on the lake. But also protected in the forest with a firepilace. Toilets available. $ 18.75 fire Permit $ 9.25 There was no firewood left. If you use your own firewood, you still have to pay the full price for the fire permit.

sehr schöner Platz.
mehrere Stellplätze am Lake.
aber auch geschützt im Wald alle mit Feuerstelle. Toiletten vorhanden.
18.75$ Feuer Permit 9.25$
bei uns war kein Feuerholz mehr vorhanden.
nutz du dein eigenes Feuerholz, ist trotzdem der volle Preis für das Feuer Permit zu zahlen.
finde ich schon happig.

Nice camping sites between the mountains and on a creek.

Selfregistration, $18.75 a night. Pittoilets, potable water. Picnic tables and fire pit at every site. I think it was around $8 for a fire permit including wood. A dishwashing sink, they ask you not to fill your RV up. We arrived around 13:00 h and there were about 6 spots left. Filled up pretty quick after us. It was nice and quiet.

We spend one night here, price 18.75$ first come first served. Beautiful spots next to the river with beautiful view. No phone service. Level spots. Park rangers allowed us to stay 2 vehicles in one spot as the campground was full.

Beautiful campground but we stayed on their last night being open. They’re now closed for the season.

Report Check-In

still open until october 14th. 17.99$ to put in a envelop (+ 8$/day if you wanna make a fire, infinite wood included). Basic but really beautiful, some open sites near the creek and some more private in the wood. We arrived around 6pm and still many sites available, even if a lot of campgrounds are closed in october. Would stay again!

Small National Park Campground ($17,60) with most sites in the forest and few sites along Mosquito Creek. These are on a big gravel area without privacy. Quiet.

Nice little campground, open till october 14th. No potable water available anymore because it is freezing.

nice spot -- fills up early, no overflow available. park near the stream to avoid road noise

Report Check-In

Nice camping, not very big, quiet, spots along the river and amongst the trees. The only problem is that there is 1 drinking water tap for the whole camping, and a few bathrooms... But it is true that we had less mosquitoes here than in the majority of other campgrounds and free camp spots

Camping très agréable. Il y a un overflow, et ce n’est pas très loin de Lac Louise.
