This was a pretty good campsite. There are a lot of sites and it wasn't exactly private but private enough. The showers were the best I've ever see at a campsite - clean with plenty of warm water. The fire pits were much smaller than expected. Good location.

We reserved our camping spot early thinking the place would be packed. We arrived May 25 to a nearly empty campground. The site was clear, the bathrooms clean and the wood pile was gigantic. We loved the proximity to hiking trails and made the most of the quiet space before heading to Jasper 3 days later. We were able to... More

Really liked this campsite - great facilities to use, as well as a ton of firewood available to use for your whole stay. Even though the campsites were close together I didn't feel it was that bad (maybe because we were out hiking all day)- but it was quiet at night. I would stay here again!

Having stayed at the other Tunnel Mountain car camping campground, I can easily say this one's a cut above. Most campsites have a bit of tree coverage in between, so you do get a little privacy. The one thing TM2 has over this campground is its proximity to downtown Banff. TM1 is a fair bit further. One beef I did... More

Nice site, basic but clean. No bus service to Banff so leave from Village 2 bus station if you'd like to travel downtown. Elk EVERYWHERE, unfortunately no wolves or bears or cool animals. Firewood was plentiful and bathrooms are very new. Couldn't drive our tent spikes into the ground as the tent pad must have been laid over an existing... More

Can't really ask more of a campground. Hot showers, washing up area, clean bathrooms, spaced out tent sites. Plus really friendly staff and a great view of mt rundel from our site A43. Just a note when they ask at registration if you want a fire they mean do u want to buy a fire permit for 8.80 a day.... More

It's a parking lot. You are so close to your neighbour you feel like your in the Truman show, just living out your day with people staring and evesdropping on your conversation. I've had more privacy at a Walmart parking lot than this place. Pros- the staff is great!!!!!

We were here aug long weekend and found everything to be in top shape. Shower and washroom facilities were clean and regularly maintained. Park rangers regularly monitor and drive by to ensure park rules are followed and to also keep an eye for wildlife. We had a herd of elk roam around the campsite peacefully. Can't wait to go back!

Stayed 2 nights over may long, full campsite with heated bathrooms, showers, hot & cold water tap, & food lockers. Lots of wildlife, make sure you wake up early as that's when they are most active. 7am had a cub grizzly come walking through the camp escorted by 2 police officers lol
