I really enjoyed staying at this campground. The staff was very friendly. The site we had was quite private and peaceful. We paid to have a fire and the wood was free and they had a large pile to take from. The view from the campground is beautiful and there are trails to walk in the campground and close by.... More

Very quiet and lots of room to set up camp. I enjoyed the drive to and from Banff. The washroom facilities were accessible. Quiet mornings were spent with coffee and enjoying the mountains and fresh air.

We camp here at least twice a year. Lately we have been asking for the K loop as the bathrooms are the nicest. However, we made the mistake of camping right beside the bathroom and late into the night we had to suffer through constant door opening and the sound of the high speed hand dryer- ughhhh There is a...

While traveling through Banff with family recently, we spent one night camping at the Tunnel Mountain Village 1 Campground. We found this to be a great place to camp. There were enough other campers around to feel a some sense of safety in bear country, yet the camp sites were far enough apart between campsites to allow a bit of... More

Loved staying here! Nice and close to town, yet far enough to not hear traffic. Very clean and nice bathrooms. Another plus - almost no bugs, it was amazing. The staff are also very friendly and good at recommending nearby places to sight-see

A very nice full service area of the campground within walking distance (if you are fit) to downtown Banff. No wifi of course being a provincial park but who cares, you're in the Rockies; get out and enjoy it. Cons: very small outside picnic area due to terracing and very limited # of showers and the water was lukewarm. .... More

Spent the weekend camping out with some friends and had a great time.paid for a fire permit and it's well worth it,endless fire wood.Nothing like cooking over a fire.Bathrooms were very clean and well looked after.Camp site across from us didn't follow basic camping rules and campground staff were quick and professional about addressing the problem.

Reserved an outer plot for two nights after reading a review on here and I was not disappointed! Amazing scenery, ample toilets and showers which were clean enough! Seen quite a few deer (at least that's what I think they were) walking through the site. The only downside was there is a train track close by and extremely long trains... More

If you are able to request a site, be sure to ask for an outer ring spot, facing the woods, which are down the hill and across the street. When we woke up in the morning and stood in the campsite, we could see Mt. Randle on one side and mountain peaks when we turned the other way. Beautiful and... More
