“Very convenient, lot situated in a good spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We came here on a Friday morning during the August long weekend with our fingers crossed. We had a feeling the Two Jack Lakeside campground would be impossible to get in and tried our luck at Two Jack Main and we were the 3rd last group of people who were able to secure a campsite. No reservations allowed at either.

We got a spot in loop #2, site D. It was situated high and away from the main road and it provided a lot more privacy that those close to main road at lower elevation which was quite exposed to the world and close to both bathrooms and garbage bin; you wouldn't want your site there.

The bathrooms were relatively clean and there was a a shelter with a sink and running water for doing dishes along with tables and benches. Fire permit was mandatory and you can take all the firewood you need. Park wardens at the site were very friendly and ensured the campgrounds were safe and quiet by frequent patrolling. As the other reviewer noted, no showers but we were aware of that before going.

Because this site was close to everything, the following activities were accessible within a short drive: ice cream and short walk at Lake Minnewanka, sushi & groceries in Banff, round trip 1 hour hike around Johnston Lake.

Room Tip: Good campsite would be one higher in elevation, away from main road, washrooms and garbage bin.

Nice place to camp. Well-treed lots, free firewood. Bathrooms are covered in dead bugs, though, and there are no showers onsite at all. Quick trip to Banff, Cascade Pond, or Lake Minnewanka. Saw a herd of elk grazing on the way in.
