WHITOUT A RESERVATION, We arrived at 7:30am at the parking lot and went right away to the bus stop. At 08:20am the warden arrived and every place on bus was reserved. But when I told them that I was camping, they said OK hop in! I guess they have reserved places on bus for people who camp whitout a reservation.... More

We booked 2 nights at the Lake O'Hara campground and it was great! The Lake O'Hara area is absolutely beautiful and camping for a few days is a perfect way to enjoy all it has to offer. My boyfriend and I are used to a more "rough-rugged" style of camping, and for that reason we felt as though the Lake... More

The camp spots were good, but the picnic tables were not near the sites, and were communal and often full. Bathrooms were fine, and it was nice to have two covered shelters during the rain, and storage location for gear and food. Needless to... More

For people who like roughing it, this campground is not for you. You get to take all your gear on the bus, there are wood stoves and toilets in the outhouses. Because you don't have to walk in, there are lots of families. Of course, the kids have a limited appreciation for the great outdoors and are just as happy... More

the campsites are crammed together, and the day is long in the summer. people let their kids run wild so it is impossible to sleep. no picnic tables near tents (for bear control) but it is hard to get a spot at the group tables. beware there are no flush toilets, only pits. the mosquitos were absolutely awful in july-...
