Quiet NP campground with many sites, some sites have full hookups but looks like a parking lot. Other sites have no services but have more privacy. Many Rv and tent sites here. Clean restrooms and free warm showers. Cell service is decent. Elk were prevalent in the campground. We stayed in Loop 16, site S.

Super grand camping de Parc Canada. Beaucoup de places. Sur le site de réservation, aucune place, mais quand vous vous présentez, toujours un espace. Les espaces de douches/ toilettes rénovés il y a 3 ans! Impeccable!

Walk-in area was rather empty. So it's really easy getting a spot if you're walking or cycling. $25 a night. There's a bus that runs to town. They have electricity in the ablutions, and if you bring a lock you can lock your stuff in a small locker while it charges.

Nice and big camping ground. Really new bathroom facilities. Many over the camping area. Free firewood. Reservation is a must during the summer.

I was at this place and everything is the same.

We stayed on this campground in may with our van 5 nights in on a serviced site and 3 nights on an unserviced site.

The campground itself is really nice. Well located and large, but not crowded.

The facilities are pretty new and shiny, BUT many showers are out of order (in every building at least 1/3, in some even 2/3). The working ones aren't nice as well. You can't control the temperature and often it's not hot at all. Also the pressure is low.

Looks like they did the facilities all new, but made it cheap and have no one to maintain them.

The loop (dirt road) to our unserviced site was full of giant, deep potholes. Needs to be done!!

Beatiful and enormous campsite. Big pits. Friendly staff. Moose wonderimg on the grass. Very calm during the night. When we arrive, late on te evening they only have places without electricity. O.K. for us. Very good price: 30 CAND, no firewood, no hook-
up

Report Check-In

Spent 3 nights on this campground. The staff is Really friendly. 30$/night for a spot with no électricity and no fire permit. Bathrooms are really nice but lots of them were « out of service » (we suppose they Just close half of them when the campground is not full, to save money on cleaning…) so sometimes we had to wait a bit to access showers. Would come again.

Beautiful sites, modern renovations, and free unlimited firewood (when you book and pay the ~$11 fire permit fee). Loved this spot.

Large campground in Jasper National Park. We are in an electric only site. It cost $36Can plus $11 firewood fee plus $13.50 processing fee. A good place to stay on our trip to Alaska. Attached a map for reference.

Report Check-In

Decent campground. Very few trees now due to pine beetle infestation. Infrastructure is new. Still barely warm showers though as per the October review.

Report Check-In

29$ for a spot for our transit van with no fire pit. We were put in 15-N one of the areas outside of the circle. There was a building with showers/bathrooms and a dish washing sink. Showers didn’t get hot but it is October so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Huge campground just outside of Jasper with beautiful views and plenty of Elks to keep you company (beware of the bulls at the moment!). Sites are a little on the small side and, depending on the amount of neighbors, not very private. Paid $29 per night for a site without electricity and a fire ring. Instead of paying $10 extra for a fire ring we just made a fire in one of the kitchen shelter wood stoves. The bathroom blocks are nice and have plugs but the showers are more lukewarm than hot. However, the disabled shower was nice and hot as it has a temperature regulator.

Stayed here 2 nights in September. We were able to book day of at the campground. $29 without fire pit, $40 with fire pit and unlimited fire wood. If you see there’s some available, just go there and save yourself the $11.50 fee to book on Parks Canada. The park is full of elk which is fun to wake up to!!

Report Check-In

Very nice campground. Huge, but with lots of trees in lane 21. We saw elks.
Showers weren't hot, so we used the disabled shower wich was much hotter !

One of the largest — if not THE largest — campground in Canada. Excellent facilities. We got a no-service, no fire pit site for $26 plus tax. We are in loop 29 which has lots of trees for privacy. Each loop is different. Bathrooms are nicer than mine at home!

I walked in at 7:45pm on a Sunday and was able to snag a spot at the check-in desk without a prior reservation. For a truck camper.

Nice campsite. Has all hot showers and all that jazz. Saw elk in the campground too!

We noticed that the campsite hosts regular stargazing events with staff from the Jasper Planetarium & Observatory for ~40$. We went to the Planetarium/Observatory itself for their event which was really cool, so can only assume this will be great too!

Very nice campground. All facilities seems to be new. The showers are amazing, warm and included. Walk in area for tents behind the reception building with Picknick tables and washroom (incl. showers) nearby.

Beau camping, 29$ pour aucun service/ 39$ pour avoir un pit de feu. Le tarif électricité et eau je ne sais pas mais ça doit tourner au alentour de 40 et +

Animaux sauvage dans les alentours.
Belle salle de bain et douche.

J’imagine que la vue doit être belle, mais nous sommes allés lorsqu’il avait bcq de fumée des feux de forêt dans l’air.

Stayed 3 nights in two different spots. Really impressive modern bathrooms. You can sit inside and charge your batteries. We saw many elks on the site. We had a site without service which is listed at 29$ on the Park Canada website but with all the fees the total is more like 40$.

Nice, clean and super huge campground.
A lots of elks there.
Warm showers.
spent here 3 night (2 of them we have to pay for firepit even though we didn't want a place with firepit.

Report Check-In

Cheapest option for camping here is $29.50. To get it, ask for a site with No firepit, and of course no hook ups. No firepit means no fire permit charge.
They also told me at check-in that they are out of wood, so everyone is getting the fire permit refunded right now.
Huge campground (700+ sites), but surprisingly quiet.

Report Check-In

Nice big campground, most spots are very open without trees, some of them are more covered. Had a very hot shower the first night, only just warm the second night. It's just a push button. The handicap shower you can control yourself. Even though it's full its quiet.
Saw some Elk.
There has been 2 bear sightings on the campground in the past 2 weeks so be very bear aware, as always.

A great campground with multi sani dump stations on one area of the campground. Beautiful and clean shower buildings. Deer and elk everywhere!

Report Check-In

Large campground with hundreds of sites. some sites have electricity. Nice new bath houses with showers. Elk everywhere. We came back from a bike ride and had an Elk 10 yards from our van. Minutes later another showed up. they grazed and nested 15 yards from our campsite for 4 hours. Woke up this morning and we had 4 elk roaming the campground, 2 cows and 2 bulls. They are not afraid of people or dogs but everyone is keeping their distance. They obviously frequent the campground often. Ranger told us an Elk gave birth in the campground last week.

Gros camping à quelques minutes de Jasper. Aucun service sur les terrains, mais plusieurs douches (tièdes/chaudes) avec toilettes. Très peu d’intimité entre les terrains, mais aucun bruit d’autoroute ou train. Nous y sommes allés mi-juin sans réservation et aucun problème à se trouver un site pour plusieurs nuits. 38$/nuit (avec permis de feu). Wapiti en prime sur votre terrain. Accepte les chiens!

18000km since February 2022 around Canada and this is the best campground we’ve stayed in! Unserviced sites are the way to go as you have much more privacy 15QQ close to showers, washrooms and sinks to wash dishes. Hot clean and new showers bonus that they are free too. Can’t recommend this place enough especially for families!

As described, only the showers were cold (which was really a shame given the brand new building and cold weather).

Huge RV park that can probably host 100s but my site with electricity is far enough away from neighbors with plenty of trees for privacy. $40+ for the night. 🐕 friendly. Free firewood.🔥 pit and picnic table at each site. The two regular 🚿 were ice cold but the handicap accessible 🚿 was nice and warm. Clean facilities. Okay signal for Google fi. An elk as tall as my van greeted us when we arrived!

Huge campground. Shower and firewood location not very convenient. Did the trick though. Hot showers. Will be renovated in 2019. When we got there it started snowing, in no time all outside taps were frozen.. Paid $27 for a van and a fire permit was around $8, including wood. Resident elk included. :)

Very beautiful campground. It's huge (781 sites). Book ahead in peak season. Very popular. The park comes with deer, moose and a grizzly. So follow the usual bear rules. Perfect location in Jasper cause it's so central.

wild life is very appealing.

Nice campground. We got a few bars of 3G reception with Rogers and sometimes LTE. If you don’t need anything from the village we would camp more outside of the village (it will be cheaper there). We paid 27 CAD for no hookups here (you can fill water and dump though). Outside the village it will be 15 CAD.
