There is one good thing about this place - if your gas tank is empty they have fuel. Expect to pay 50 cents more a liter than you will anywhere else in the province and expect that when you ask for $20 worth they "accidentally" fill up your tank - so keep an eye on it. You are not allowed... More

On our way from Banff to Jasper, this was a good place to stop-over for the night. (There are not many, if any, alternatives in the area). The motel however was a bit run-down, and certainly far too expensive for the quality of accommodation and service. The restaurant was closed for a private function and we ate at the pub.... More

A gift shop that also has a section for camping items, clean bathrooms and a quick bite to eat it's all here and not a bad place to stop. If you are looking for a place to stay, they have rooms too....can't comment on them though as we were just passing through.

This was a nice place to stop for snacks while we were out sightseeing. Not only do they have food but bathrooms were nice too. You have to plan your stops because there is not much in between except beautiful scenery. I was, however, happy to find this stop on our way to Jasper.

although more expensive then in town, being half way between Lake Louise and Jasper, at the junction with the highway to Red Deer, makes this restaurant/ cafeteria/ gift shop combo a perfect place to eat on the highway. plan to stop and enjoy a great meal.

We were travelling from Jasper to Banff and stopped for the night at the Saskatchewan River Crossing hotel. The rooms were small but adequate, the restaurant did excellent food for dinner and had a great breakfast. The views at sunrise were awesome. This is just a lovely place to rest while travelling down the majestic rockies.
