Two Jack Lakeside was a wonderful campground. The sites right on the lake are the ones to get (we were in #24, which was gorgeous and had its own path right down to the water). The bathroom was clean and, I was surprised to see, had free, incredibly hot, showers. The only major downside was that for each cluster of... More

This is one of the most private and beautiful campsites I have stayed at and it was great to be right on the water. I recommend sites 42 and 44 because they are right on the lake and a short distance to the restrooms. We also loved all the free firewood!! Highly recommend.

We camped here last July as it was recommended to us for the lake to go fishing. Fishing aspect was good but it is not a lake for swimming just a view really. The sites here a wide open, not much tree cover and are close together. I would recommend only tents or small rv's under 24 feet. I enjoy... More

We stayed in an Otentik for one night in June. These sites are almost completely booked for the whole summer, so you basically have to book them the first day the reservation system opens in the spring. When I was booking, I couldn't figure out which sites were good or not. Now that I have seen them, I would recommend... More

This campground is a great addition to the online reservation system. You just have to plan way ahead to get a space. Perhaps this fact makes it a quieter campground full of organized people. It seemed a bit eerie to have such a peaceful time without thick tree cover to separate the sites. It's a much smaller campground, compared to... More

We drove through here in spring on a cold blustery day. We stopped by the lake and enjoyed the great views and saw both the campground and overflow which our guide told us is booked out daily in summer by 11am as no bookings are taken and people line up at 5am to secure a camping spot. This is a... More

Absolutely stunning views you won't find in any campground in the rockies, unless you're a backpacker. Highly recommend the walk-in tent sites, they all have lake views and some of the sites are right by the water and breathtaking. Close enough to Banff townsite that you can take a break from roughing it as needed with a short drive. Be... More

Love this beautiful Lake spot in Banff National Park-Reserve early as it filled up quick!!Great for SUP Boarding-canoeing and kayaking. Some lovely day hikes and many are family friendly!I have been lucky to live about an hour away for many years used to bring my children here-still one of favourite spots!

This was a great place to camp. We stopped here for one night. We were right near the lake and it was quiet. One of my favorite camping sites in Banff or Jasper. We only stayed one night as it woke up to about 7 inches of snow the next morning. Much smaller campground.

We also stayed at Whistler’s in Jasper and Takkakaw Falls in Yoho. There are also lodges available for those who do not want to setup a full camp. We only stayed for one night, but were able to do the small walk around the lake and freshen up in the bathrooms (they have nice showers with warm water). I would... More
