Our first impressions of the Resort were very good. It was somewhat chilly when we arrived late in the evening and at check-in we found our registration form had already been filled out so all we had to do was verify the info and sign. Then we walked into a heated cabin, especially appreciated by my wife. Our rustic, simple... More

Happy to leave this review. This location is the best I've seen for customer care. A misplaced item found and being sent back to us. Besides that I am in love with the vintage charm of these beautiful cabins. Nice remote location and private. Will certainly return without a doubt!!! The trail is a must and great to take photos....

We stayed here for 4 nights in cabin 24, and we couldn't ask for more! Nothing special on view or anything but for the price we got a rustic cabin feel with the amenity of a full bathroom which was perfect. Check in was a breeze and you are literally just steps from the start of Johnson's canyon which is... More

We stayed three nights in a river front cabin. Quite pleased - our cabin was updated, spacious and clean. Setting was lovely. Did not eat in the restaurants so I can't comment on them. Staff in store/restaurant area not overly welcoming (maybe borderline rude), but staff at checkin/checkout were fine.

We stayed in a two-bedroom bungalow with kitchen and living room for three nights, which gave us plenty of space to relax, prepare simple home-cooked meals, and enjoy the wood-burning fireplace. The property is conveniently located about halfway between Banff and Lake Louise, so if you are an early riser you can easily be one of the first on any... More

Ater reading some negative reviews about the reservation process, I am delighted to report that I have only had prompt service in booking a cabin on the phone with excellent follow up on line communication to chat about my reservation. I anticiciapte a good experince based on my contact with the staff.

Johnston Canyon Resort could be a top notch place as the location is lovely, the cabins are older but spacious, and the fireplaces are a rustic nice touch. However the place badly needs some good management right from booking through to ensuring the cabins are cared for. Customer calls are not returned.The cabins are dirty and if you are even... More

The location of this report is fantastic, the workers are incredibly nice, and the restaurant was very good for dinner. It stops there. The resort is completely overrun with tour busses, making it very difficult at times to even walk on the path to the falls. The cabins are very outdated and in dire need of an update. The picture...

Hi, we just came back from a weekend hiking in Banff and had a great time (June 25th). We stayed at Johnson Canyon Park Resort - used a Travel Zoo voucher which gave us 40% off a two bedroom fully equipped cottage. There were 5 adults and this cabin was great, with a kitchenette and BBQ we were able to... More
