“B70/72 best unobstructed RV sites”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stayed at this campground in an RV mid August 2013, though pre-booked in April. An extremely busy venue at this time of year, and choosing a site early is essential. Sites were clean, as was the ablution facilities. A public transport bus (Roam) regularly leaves from two stops with-in the campground (Route 2), one near the entrance, another by the chalets. $2 one way into Banff. Train horns wailing through-out the night, is par for the course, where-ever there are railway lines. The track is about 1 km away. Enjoyed the stay as a base to explore the surrounding areas.

Room Tip: book early

Tunnel Mountain exists of 3 campgrounds, of which Village II Campground provides full hook-ups. It is a huge Parks Canada campground, having 222 RV sites. Currently roads are being paved all around, and parking & hooking up the camper is easy. Sites are close by one another, yet the site is quiet. Except for the passing trains... a first time experience for us. Accomodation buildings are basic, yet provide the services one may require. September is not high season, so the campground was not over-populated. For Banff, this surely is a recommendation, when RV-ing through the Rocky Mountains.

We stayed in a tenting site for two nights in the summer of 2013. The campsites were wonderful, spacious, private and mostly vacant. The first night we found out why they were mostly vacant! Trains go by all night long, sounding their horns over and over, so we hardly got any sleep. The basic purpose of a campsite is to be able to sleep! We were so exhausted the second night that we got some sleep, but I would never stay here again by choice. If you sleep in a trailer with air conditioning it would probably be okay, but tents don't keep out any noise, so I would not recommend tenting in Banff.

If you love the outdoors this is a great place to camp or RV. We were site B70 so the views are fantastic from this area. We were by the road but still found it quiet. You do park on pavement which is fine by us. The showers were not clean up to my standards but it sounds like they were fine for some people. The price is a bit high for what you get at the campground. The only thing I missed was WIFI and they could install this in the campground if they wanted. This is a parks campground and the service is not what it used to be. There are tons of biking and hiking trails around which are fantastic. Town is close and there is a convenient store a minute away if you don't want to go into town. We did have a great time and will go back.

The site was fully booked when we stayed in August and due to the way the sites are laid out, we found our space a little tight even though our RV was not particularly big. The train running past can be noisy at first but we were so tired from hiking on our second day that we slept through it. The views are beautiful and there is a lovely walk just outside the campground. The shower and toilet facilities were always clean and tidy. The shuttle bus service is a real bonus for getting into town and back and runs every 40 minutes.

We tent camped here for one night. We had site d4. It was a walk-in site but parking was only 10m away so really easy. The site was full but it didn't feel busy or cramped in the camping area. We booked online and it was easy to do and easy to select a pitch. Not much tree cover on this pitch but others looked to have. The showers and toilet blocks were fine. An easy drive into the town, just a couple of miles. We did hear the trains but only a couple of times and seemed no worse than anywhere else in banff. It is quite loud though!

Room Tip: You can look online at the layout of pitches and see photos of them. It's on the national park w...
