After calling and calling and calling to get a campsite at Lake O'Hara, I finally got through and was able to book three nights. It was so great! The bus service is really useful, and the ground are well kept and beautiful. The fire always seemed to be roaring and I can't wait to get back into the mountains again!

The Lake O'Hara area is absolutely beautiful. We had a reservation for the 10;30 bus and stayed two nights at the Lake O'Hara campground. We were able to pick our own tent site, which are just big enough for one tent and are on a nice flat platform. The community shelters, shelter for suitcases and luggage, fire ring, bear boxes,...

It's a small campground, but really well arranged. It's the best place to set up for touring Lake O'Hara (other than the very expensive Lodge). Sites can accommodate 2-3 person tents, though did see some people managed to cram in the larger Coleman tents. Bathrooms (not flush, sorry) and filtered water are centrally located. Best advice: campground spots (includes a...

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....

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...

OK, if you are reading this, you likely already know the secret that Lake O'Hara is one of the best places in the world. The next secret is that you do not have to pay the price of staying in the lodge if you can backcountry camp. By all means, stay in the lodge if this is your once in...

BC campsites always seem to be superior in quality to Alberta sites (Berg Lake is wonderful!). 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...

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...

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-...
