Close to the town for all your needs, nice small trails within campsite and nice kids park. Showers were pretty clean too. One of the best campgrounds in Jasper and we've been to most of them. Good for tenting or trailers

I stayed here for two nights on a rainy weekend. The sites are relatively spaced out, but it is a pretty open area. I would suggest that you try and book a site right on the river. There is not much for views here but I would consider it a quiet campground. The bathrooms were renovated near us and were... More

Although there were bear warning signs everywhere, we enjoyed our stay. Clean, and easy to find. Our site was a little tough to get into, but we made it work. When I booked the site online, it said it was full service, but it's only electrical. No water hook ups. That was disappointing. Good, central place to make a base,... More

We tent camped here for 1 night. It was a nice quiet site and our pitch was very private with lots of trees. The site is in a lovely location right next to the river, a lovely walk and views. There are no showers but the toilet blocks were fine and close to the pitches. There is a nice 'feel'... More

Travelling with a family with two small children and a 25ft RV, this was the best campground we stayed at around Jasper (we also stayed in Wapiti and Whistler). Although it's about 10 Miles from Jasper, it's only a 10 min drive. Compared to Wapiti and Whistler, this is a quiet campground with a lot of privacy. In weekend evenings,... More

We've stayed at Whistlers (our favourite) and Wapiti many times. This was our first time at Wabasso and it was disappointing compared to the other two. We didn't see any wildlife (Whistlers is full of Elk, etc), the sites are much more open (fewer trees and less private) and no showers... And quite frankly the bathrooms were kind of gross,... More

We booked campsite A49 in the tent only loop a few months ago. The site was marvelous, it was spacious and right next to the river. There were some sites in the loop that were definitely not so stellar. The downsides: the bathrooms were a bit far away, the firepits were pretty small little things and there wasn't a lot... More

I wasn't expecting much because we were only able to reserve a last minute site online a few days before the Canada day long weekend, so my relief of even finding a site outweighed my pickyness. We had a little trouble finding the site originally and actually drove about 40KM past the site which wasn't so bad because the scenery... More

Since this campground is a few miles away from Jasper, it is likely less popular than Wapiti or Whistlers. We stayed on a Sunday and Monday in mid-July, and there were a number of sites still available. Pros: - It was very quiet and relaxing, with the Athabasca river running just beside the campground. - walking trails along the river... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Best suited for tenting, and motorhomes and trailers under 27 feetWith pristine views, rushing river water and electrical sites for small RVs, Wabasso lets you get away from it all, without getting rid of it all, so bring your rice cooker and your coffee maker! This quiet campground is tucked away on the 93A, a secondary highway offering excellent road biking opportunities, particularly in the fall. This is a good staging area for overnight treks into the backcountry and shorter day trips to Moab Lake and Athabasca falls. Wabasso features heated bathrooms with lights, flush toilets, and hot and cold running water. ... more   less
