This the best campground we've stayed at in Jasper or Banff; so small and intimate, and right next to an incredibly scenic lake! We stayed there in our tent trailer in August, 2016 with our three girls and had a great time. We used this spot as a base camp; we took our canoe down across the lake and down...

This is a review of the lake and not the campground. Most who come to the lake are picnickers. There are plenty of picnic tables and a small beach. The day we were at Two Jack Lake was gloriously sunny and warm. We brought our own kayak (no onsite boat rentals) and spent a most enjoyable couple of hours kayaking...

We pre booked early and managed to get a spot lakeside. The views from the tent are unparalleled - the comforts of staying in a hotel are far outweighed by the setting of Two Jack Lakeside. Our site was surrounded by trees, perfect to set up a hammock, and the campsite provided pre chopped wood for the fire pit (only...

Most of traveller usually come back to Calgary airport. Everyone wants to go to a close and impressive place. This place is very close to downtown Banff and is a calming place. If Mine Wanka Lake gives a great impression, this place is a place to stay calm. 햇살이 눈부셨고, 두 명의 jack 이란 운치있는 이름이 마음에 들었다. 밴프 시내에서...

When I first heard the sites were walk in I was under the impression it would be a far walk. But from the parking area to your selected site it is only about 100 yards max. The tent camping area is peaceful with amazing views of the lake and mountains. I reserved spot 29 and it was an amazing view...

My dream was to go tent camping again (age 65) since I hadn't done it since my kids were little. So, my daughter and I found this beautiful campground! We scouted around the day before and fell in love with #42. Returned at 11AM the following morning, and were able to rent it for that night. We were right across...

A popular drive that we almost always take while in Banff National Park is the Lake Minnewanka Loop. Take the road from Banff / off the Trans Canada and just after the cattle gate (in the middle of the road ) and take your 1st right turn. This takes you past some magnificent scenery onto 2 Jack Lake and onward...

Came here for a quick stop during our banff trip. We saw goats here! The color of the lake was beautiful. Parking was easy as this isn't a touristy place so there aren't many people. A worthy stop when exploring banff.

We rented one of the Otentiks for the night and absolutely loved it. At first, I thought it was a bit pricey, but in the end it was well worth it! Very clean, comfy and came with its own grill. There were only two of us, but it would fit a large group easily. The employees were extremely kind and...

Very small campsites but close to the water with a very beautiful view. The washrooms were kinda dirty by the morning but were cleaned. We got one of the last sites available that was beside the washrooms. Do not get the site by washroom if you want quiet, as it is very noisy listening to the hand dryers go on....
