The RV Park is part of the Parks Canada system. We arrived with a reservation and found the camp staff to be accommodating and friendly. We waited in line for approximately 20 minutes to check-in. On weekends and holiday periods you can expect to wait in line 30-60 minutes, even if you have a reservation. We were assigned a pull-through site that was approximately 90 feet long, gravel and level. All sites are side-by-side with another RV camper next to and facing the opposite direction. All RV sites are big rig accessible, pull-through, gravel, and level. Hook-ups were electric (30 amp) only with good voltage. No water or sewer at camp sites. The RV dump station has six separate dump sites, is located near the entrance to the RV Park and has excellent access with easy entrance and exit. Some sites have fire rings for which you will be charged an additional $8.80 per night for a campfire permit that also includes firewood. The RV Park is located in a dense forest that provides a lot of shade; our site had sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. The bathroom / shower building had five showers for each gender. All had modern fixtures with tile walls and floors. The shower stalls were large with a separate changing area. The women’s bathroom / shower building was very dirty, had mildew in the corners and had a musty smell. During our stay the women’s bathroom sewer system backed-up into the showers and sinks and was out of service for one day. The men’s bathroom / shower building was clean and well ventilated. There are also several small bathroom buildings with toilets and sinks throughout the RV Park. The RV Park is next to the Bow River and walking distance to the Lake Louise Village and Samson Mall. Lake Louise, the Lake Louise Chalet and hiking trails are a 10 minute drive. Moraine Lake and the Moraine Lake Lodge and hiking trails are a 20 minute drive. The RV Park is close to Highway 93 and there is some highway noise. A railroad line is also very close and creates a lot of noise throughout the day and night. Bears are a small problem and a clean camp is important. WiFi is available at the Lake Louise Village and Samson Mall for a fee. We stayed four nights and paid $32.30 per night, not including taxes. Parks Canada also charges a daily park entry fee of $19.60 for each vehicle in the Banff and Jasper National Parks, in addition to RV Park fees. An annual park pass is $136.40. A fire permit is required to have a campfire and costs an additional $8.80 per day, including firewood. This is a very popular area and reservations are highly recommended.

The RV Park is part of the Parks Canada system. We arrived at approximately 4:30 pm, without a reservation, and found the camp staff to be accommodating and friendly. We waited in line for approximately 10 minutes to check-in. We were assigned a back-in site that was approximately 55 feet long and not a problem to back into. All sites are on the outside of a camp loop and easy to back into. The park is big rig accessible but some non-hook-up sites have a lot of trees that will prevent slide-outs from opening completely. All sites are gravel and very close to level. We stayed in an electric (30 amp with good voltage) only site that was densely forested that provided a lot of shade and seclusion. The full hook-up sites are closer together with only a few trees separating each camp site. The campground is very quiet and dark at night. Access roads throughout the campground are very rough and full of deep pot holes. All sites have fire rings for which you will be charged an additional $8.80 per night for a campfire permit that also includes firewood. Wash / bathrooms had five showers in the main bathroom / shower building. There is only one shower building in the campground and it is a 5 - 20 minute walk through the forest depending on your site location. Bathrooms with flush toilets and hot water in the sinks are close to each camp loop. All had modern fixtures and were in very good condition. The shower stalls were large with a separate changing area. All were clean. There are several laundromats approximately 10 minutes away in the town of Jasper. The RV sewer dump had eight separate dump stations, had easy access and was located near the entrance to the park. We stayed four nights and paid $32.30 per night, not including taxes. Parks Canada also charges a daily park entry fee of $19.60 for each vehicle in the Banff and Jasper National Parks, in addition to RV Park fees. An annual park pass is $136.40. A fire permit is required to have a campfire and costs an additional $8.80 per day, including firewood. This is a very popular area and reservations are highly recommended.

We arrived without a reservation and found the park staff to be very accommodating and friendly. We were assigned a back-in RV site with plenty of room for our 5th wheel trailer with three slide-outs. All of the sites are back-in. The RV Park is located in a densely forested area and all of the sites are well shaded and have a fire ring. The front office sells a decent bundle of firewood for $7. All sites are separated from each other by a dense forest that gives each camper a lot of privacy. Access roads are paved and in good condition. The RV Park is generally big rig accessible however; some turns are a little tight and trees at some sites make it a challenge to back in. The RV Park is on a slope so most of the sites are not level, but with a full set of leveling blocks we were able to come close to level. Electric (30 amp) and water hook-ups were convenient, on the left side and closer to the front of the site. The electrical connection box did not have a breaker and the voltage was very low. The water system consisted of a flexible plastic pipe attached to a spigot with a hose clamp. The water pressure was very poor. Water from a faucet would slow to a trickle after 3 – 5 seconds. None of the sites have a sewer connection. The sewer dump station is near the RV Park entrance and the turn going into and out of the dump site is tight. There several bathroom / shower buildings in the park. Bathroom buildings and fixtures are a little dated. Each building has two small shower stalls. Bathrooms and showers were in fair condition and could use a deep cleaning. The ventilation fan was very dusty and did not keep the shower area ventilated so the building had a musty smell. The RV Park laundry has four washing machines and two large capacity dryers. The machines are older but in good condition and clean; $1.00 to wash and $1.00 to dry. There is a restaurant on-site with a large open pit BBQ. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner in a large covered outdoor seating area. The BBQ ribs, baked beans and soup were great. The RV Park is approximately .25 miles from Highway 2 and there is a little noise from passing vehicles. There is also a railroad line approximately .5 miles away and the horn from the passing trains can be heard day and night. The RV Park is approximately one mile from the west entrance to Glacier National Park, which is very popular, and reservations are highly recommended. Verizon 3G cell signal was good with three bars. Sites at the southwest side of the park, up the hill, offer the greatest privacy. We stayed three nights, paid $86.67 and received a 10 percent AAA discount. The RV Park also offers a 10 percent discount for Good Sam and AARP.

The campground is in Glacier National Park near the town of Apgar. We arrived early in the morning and did not have a problem finding a campsite we liked that our 34 foot 5th wheel trailer fit into. The campground hosts / managers were very friendly and accommodating. Campsites are available on a first come-first served basis. Campground access roads are asphalt and in good condition. Loops A, B, and C are big rig accessible. All sites are gravel and NOT level, and range from “somewhat level in places” to “impossible to level.” Trees at some sites may prevent slide-outs from opening completely. None of the sites have electric, water or sewer hook-ups. Generators are restricted to running during three periods during the day. The campground is located in a dense forest that provides a lot of shade. Each campsite has a fire ring and firewood is available at a fair price in Apgar Village. Lake Mc Donald, Apgar Village and the Apgar Transit Center are within easy walking distance. The campground is very quiet at night. Bathroom buildings are dated and require maintenance. Bathroom fixtures are also dated, with cold water only, and all were clean. Showers are available in Apgar Village or at the private Glacier Campground for a fee. RV sewer dump station is located near the entrance to the campground, was in excellent condition and had easy access. We stayed 2-nights and paid $20.00 each night.

This RV Park is family owned and operated; the camp staff is very friendly and accommodating. We arrived without a reservation and were assigned a back-in RV site with plenty of room for our 5th wheel trailer and pick-up truck. The RV Park is located in a densely forested area and almost all of the sites have a lot of shade. The RV Park has well maintained paved access roads and most camp sites are gravel or grass. Several sites are big rig accessible with very long pull through sites and plenty of room to turn. Most sites are approximately 20 feet wide however at some sites, trees may prevent slide outs from opening completely. Most sites are not level but with a full set of leveling blocks and some leveling skill it was not a problem. Electric (50 amp) and water hook-ups were convenient and the water pressure was very good. The sewer hook-up was at the very back / center of the site which made hooking-up impossible. The sewer connection was positioned so that it ended-up under our trailer. Our site had its own trash can. Camp fires are not allowed at individual campsites but a large, attractive community fire pit with firewood is located near the park entrance. Men’s and women’s bathrooms had three showers and two sinks. The handicap accessible bathroom has a toilet, bathtub and shower. All were very clean. The laundry room includes four washing machines and three dryers and all machines were in very good condition. The camp restaurant offers an excellent breakfast, homemade baked goods and BBQ items. The camp store offers locally made souvenirs. There is a very nice playground near the park entrance. The RV Park is approximately 150 feet from Highway 2 and there is a lot of noise from passing vehicles. This RV Park is approximately 2.5 miles from the west entrance to Glacier National Park, which is very popular, and reservations are highly recommended. Verizon 3G cell signal was good with three bars. We paid $43.50 for one night and the RV Park does not give any discounts.

We arrived without a reservation and found the park staff to be very accommodating and friendly. The RV sites are as advertised. Ours was a gravel site, approximately 20 feet wide that easily accommodated our 5th wheel trailer with 3-slideouts. The site also has a grass area the full length of the site and approximately 20 feet wide. The only shade is from a single fire tree at each site. A wood picnic table is included. Most of the sites are not exactly level but with a good set of leveling blocks and a little work it was not a problem. Electric and water connections are convenient for hook-up but the sewer connection is located at the very back of the site and depending on the site, the connection may be uphill from the sewer discharge on the rig. We dumped our black / gray tanks on the last day of our stay. The bathrooms are up-to-date with newer fixtures and floor tile. Each bathroom had four sinks and four showers, including handicap facilities. The bathrooms were very clean. The park laundry room is clean. The four washing machines and six dryers are somewhat old. Trash dumpsters / barrels are located within a short walking distance from most sites. A very long pet walk at the south side of the park meanders up a grassy hill to a bench that overlooks the park. The park is fairly quiet. Interstate 90 is approximately .5 miles away and an airport is approximately 4.5 miles away.
