The campground looks more like a truckers-stop next to a highway. Very unfriendly staff. If they wouldn't have Lake Louise and Moraine Lake people wouldn't stay here! The hook-ups are on the wrong side of the RV.

Perfect location in the heart of Banff National Park for the adventurer who wants to experience the beauty that is found in this famous Rocky Mountain escape. Very close to the small town of Lake Louise where you can find tourist shops and ice cream, and only another five minutes away from the historic Lake Louise Fairmont and hiking trails.... More

This is a basic camp ground, without frills or ambiance, but the country in which it lies is awesome! We stayed two nights, but should have stayed at least three, there is a lot to do and see in the area, and we missed the hike to the tea rooms due to insufficient time. This was our jumping off point... More

The true is, that Lake Louise Campground is a good, strategic location to stay as a hub to travel to Banff, Yoho and some places direction Jasper (like Bow Lake or Peyto Lake). My low rating comes with the approach of camping management to provided basic facilities like toilets or showers, which definitely need the visit of plumber since YEARS.... More

We stayed in the tent section as we were in a pop-up camper. This is another large campground, with little space between campsites. You are very close to the highway and there is a train track that runs near the campground. The trains run all day and all night. I had a very hard time sleeping there. The tent campground... More

We were here tent camping for a night and I am glad we only reserved the single one. I would not have wanted to stay there much longer. We had a "moderate" privacy site, which had no privacy whatsoever. We were placed right next to the bathhouse, which was not even marked in the map they gave us. On the... More

We stayed here August 2014 in an RV. The location is great and very picturesque, next to the glacial Bow River, not far from Lake Louise itself. Be warned though, it's next to a railway which has frequent freight trains - throughout the night! These are long trains so the noise goes on forever, we were awoken 2am, 4am an... More

The trains run through the... More

Lake Louise is far prettier and more to see than Banff. However this campsite has loud frequent trains. No power for a lot of trailer sites. We had to pick having a fire or electrical. The town is very close by which is nice.

My wife and I tented at the Lake Louise Campground for four nights in August 2014. We used this campground as a jumping off point for day hiking in the Lake Louise/Banff area. It couldn’t have been more generally convenient. The tent sites are average sized and well wooded between spots. The campground itself is really busy, but pretty quiet... More
