This is a fairly typical municipal campground with side-by-side sites and having little privacy. As their website says, the campground is located next to Kicking Horse River, which is a pleasant place to sit and contemplate the milky water as it flows by. However, their ad does not mention that on the other side of the river are train tracks,... More

This is a nice campground; it is convenient to the town area, and it is on the river. Unlike many of the reviewers here, we enjoyed the trains, though they can be loud. The campground staff were helpful and the washrooms in the main office building were beautiful. The only real flaw is in the bathrooms in the actual campground.... More

Great location near town. Walking distance along the river to food and restaurants. Not too noisy except the train but I've found every camp ground has trains. My shower wasn't hot only warm. That was my only issue. Girls at the front desk were lovely. Helped me with all my questions.

During a recent trip to Canada we camped at the Golden Municipal Campground. The campground was very nice, close to the river and just on the outskirt of town. There was a swimming meet at the municipal swimming pool located just outside of the campground and so the campground was full. Nevertheless it was quiet. Beware that there are a... More

It is just on the edge of town, walking distance. But nestled in the bushes against the river, so we still felt secluded. Trains and ice cream were a hit with the kids. Bathrooms and showers were awesome and clean. Firewood a bit pricey. Quiet.

This campground is well run and located right on the banks of the Kickinghorse River at the edge of town. The mainline rail tracks are right across the river which might be appealling or appalling depending on your attraction to railways. When we were there a few trains only came through due to track maintenance higher up the valley. Good... More

This municipal campground has a beautiful setting beside the river with a few trees and the sites are very large not too close together. It is also within walking distance to a grocery store and restaurants. The negative here is the train!! It comes all hours of the night and there are lots of cars making loud sounds. At first...

We keep coming back for Golden adventures every year!! This campground is located minutes away from all the amenities. The campground is well kept and run. The staff at the front desk always helpful and friendly. Our family rode bikes around town and came across a French restaurant called French Connection right down the road, if you stop there try...

This is a great little spot to tent for a night or two-but be sure to bring ear plugs! The trains pass through the canyon in the middle of the night and the horn reverberates loudly all around. However, if you have earplugs it's not a big deal. And this campsite is worth it. It's well tree in the back-a... More

Only A few camp sites are close to the water/train And so many camp sites are so far And You can't hear any of that. Im sure calling You... More
