Waterton Springs Campground was my first choice after a late arrival in the National Park area. Since campsites were full within the park, I drove to this convenient location. Beyond and above the RV slots, a beautiful aspen stand envelopes sparsely-occupied tent sites. Although I was caught in an early evening hailstorm, I took time next morning to dry my... More

The tenting area has great variety in terms of sites, which are generally well-treed and private. They are also away from all of the RV's so you don't have to deal with generators, slamming doors etc. The bathrooms are clean and in good working order. The location is super convenient for exploring Waterton National Park or if you're heading south... More

One of the previous reviewers wrote that this campsite has huge potential and I agree! It is set in the prettiest location and the views are fantastic. Unfortunately once we parked our (small) trailer, our views consisted of the sides and backs of gigantic fifth wheels and motor homes. To make matters worse there is one row full of seasonal...

If you enjoy camping in a field with 300 other people or are afraid of bear encounters, this is the place for you. The campground is well run, the bathrooms and showers are clean. The toilets in the bathrooms are real toilets that actually flush.😎 We live in a farm where our closest neighbor's are 3/4 of a mile away.... More

This is a great camping spot 12 minutes form the town of Waterton. Very reasonable rates, with full service sites. It is a great spot and my kids loved the stocked fishing pond. We had another family member join us short notice and they were very accommodating I putting them in the overflow area.

This is a great location to stay if you plan to visit Waterton Lakes National Park. While it is basic field camping, we enjoyed the mountain views surrounding us. Our campsite was full service and a very accessible pull thru. Laundry facilities were clean. WiFi was not the best but the owner indicated that she had placed a service call.... More

My SO and I decided to go camping near a national park and found this place. Location is excellent! Just 2 -3 min drive from the parks front gate and in a beautiful area. We were tenting and were placed up near the ponds. The area was very nice, mostly secluded but still had a good view. Table and fire... More

Unfortunately, we cannot recommend this campsite. It has huge potential bat alas falls short. We stayed here on the the last night of a 2 week holiday (I am actually writing this at just before mid-night). The campsite is in a wonderful location just outside of Waterton National Park and the views of the mountains are fabulous. Unfortunately though, not... More

The campground is only about a 5 minute drive outside of Waterton National Park. Our family of 4 (2 adults 2 kids 2/8) stayed over the August long weekend 2016. We were given the spot right beside the park which we had requested and it was great because we could keep an eye on our kids right from our trailer... More

If going to the National Park, this is a good option. Roads are a little rough, everything is dirt and gravel, but the park is nice. No TV access without a satellite. WiFi is weak. Campground is about 3 miles from the National Park, and about 15 miles from the US border.
