“Lake is Beautiful BUT Bath house is closed for season”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Tent camped here one night. Location of campground to the lake is nice and the lake and surrounding views are beautiful. Even though it's a camp ground, you do feel like you are in a natural area. We knew that the bath house only has sinks and toilets - no showers. However, when we arrived the bath house was closed for the season for renovation. So only option was porta johns. They were DISGUSTING/UNSANITARY and for some strange reason placed close to the beautiful lake. I have never seen porta johns in such desperate need of attention. WAY over due for a dump. Wait and go next summer.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

We spent an unexpected night at Waterfowl Lakes Campground, in the Banff National Park. Campground is located approx. 33 ksm from Lake Louise.

Self registration is in effect. $20.83 per night. $7.50 fire permit.

The camper trailer sites are very large - we have a 24' camper and there was tons of space. There are no hookups, but that doesn't bother us. There were flush toilets with running water, which we really like.

The sites are surrounded by trees, about 20' from the river. Absolutely stunning area.

Not sure when we can go back, but we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
