This was a great campground with excellent washrooms, toilets and laundromat. Not the fault of the campground, but the mosquitoes were horrendous! We only stayed one night as a stopover, but would certainly recommend it. Wi-Fi didn't work on our site, but did use it in the office on our laptop.
Full hook up was available and the facilities were OK. For a site of this size a laundromat should really be provided. There was only one shower per washroom block, and the hot water seemed to run out too quickly. No soap in the washrooms, though hand disinfectant is provided in the DRY toilets throughout the National Park. No recycling facilities, which for a N.P. campground I find incredible. (We're from Europe where we recycle paper, cardboard, glass, tin cans etc, and not just bottles with a deposit). Bus from the Village II campground into town worked well: it saved us from unhooking and moving every day.
Considering this is a National Park campground, and the only RV park in the area, the facilities are disappointing. There appeared to be only one shower block for the whole campground, though there were lots of toilet blocks (but no hand driers or paper towels!) The sani-dump was very dated and poor compared to others we used. And yes, there is a lot of noise from the rail track! Very disappointed with the lack of recycling facilities (coming from Europe where we are used to recycling paper, cardboard, glass tin cans etc. and not just bottles with a deposit). Went one night to the talk/ film about bears which was excellent. Not really within walking distance of the main centre of Lake Louise which is a shame.
We had considerable trouble finding this campground, as it is in fact miles from Sicamous! The plot itself was fine, but the facilities were very disappointing. The best thing about this campground was the children's playground. The swimming pool should be condemned: it was green. Whilst I would not describe the toilets and showers as "dirty" neither would I say they were clean. The laundromat worked well. This was the most expensive campground we stayed at (only stayed one night) and I would say it did not provide good value for money. Disappointing.
This was our very first night in a (rented) RV, so didn't know what to expect. We were made very welcome and enjoyed our 1 night at Claybanks. Yes, there was some noise (apparently all night) from the lumber works, but it didn't cause us a problem. Didn't go into Merritt itself as this was just a stopover. Washrooms were clean, and I would recommend this as a stopover, but can't comment on its suitability for a longer stay.
