We went to Wapiti Campground and asked to book one night, The girl at the kiosk advised us to book 2 nights and cancel the second if we changed our minds. The reason, she said, is that the sites are 100% reservable and someone could book the site we were in. In that case, we'd have to move for the second night. We said okay, book 2 nights. She proceeded to do so and her computer froze. After several minutes, she handed us the slips for two nights. They were for two different sites!! She said her computer was frozen and nothing could be done. We went to the first site and it had a bunch of garbage at it. Same thing at the second site. Both sites were very open and non-private. We went back to the girl but she could not give us a refund. We left and went to the Whistlers. Ryan straightened the whole thing out. He gave an excellent, private, great site for two nights and moved our payment from the Wapiti sites to the Whistlers' sites. Thank you Ryan!! You are the best!!!

Room Tip: We like smoke-free circles/sites and Whistlers has them. Wapiti does not.

Thanks to reading a review we checked with the campground regarding our 9 nights Aug 24-Sept 2 ,booked back in April. I read a review that said to check about fire-pits if you had all 3 services .. I did check and we were not going to have a fire pit . Asked if we could change /move sites .. Nothing else in any parks... Who camps without a campfire.. I understand fire bands and have no problem there. But NO fire pit... It should have been mentioned to me at the time I booked in April .. We are new to Alberta and the camping part... Now we have to try and find an area for our holidays ... Very Frustrated ...

We experienced Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper Whistlers campgrounds. They are all managed by the National Parks but Whistlers is by far the best in terms of equipment (even if you could hope to have an other set of showers to avoid using your car for a shower for the clients located at the very end of the campground), available room, proposed activities, children programmes and evening daily shows, information about animals, treks ...
At night, the campground is quiet: railway and highway are far enough.
... and you receive daily visits by friendly elks: great for the children!

Stayed two nights with my two boys (aged 10 and 7) at this campground. It had exactly what I was seeking: trails for hiking or mountain biking right from the campground into the town of Jasper only a few kilometres away, and then town trails hook up with several other trails (of all ability levels) right from there. We had a great three hour mountain bike ride around the area and next to the river. It was awesome. The campground is great - very large sites and amenities are clean and not too far away. It is a HUGE campground, so lots of people there. Jasper is very popular tourist destination, especially for Europeans and Americans, so get to the campground prior to mid-afternoon if you want to be assured of getting a spot. My only negative is the cost. $39 for two days just to stay in Jasper National Park, and then $72 for two nights at the campground, including a fire permit for two nights. It is very pricey, but I guess that's the price to pay to stay in paradise. Deer and Elk right in our campsite over the two days. A huge mamma deer (and her baby nearby) and freaked my kids right out in morning coming out of the tent to stare into the eyes of an Elk! It even licked my older son on his hand. Jasper is a special place. Too touristy, but still special. Not far down the road (in BC) you'll also find excellent campgrounds in Mt. Robson Provincial Park. A little more remote, but stunningly beautiful.

Room Tip: get there early to guarantee you will get a campsite.

It's a huge campground, but it didn't felt too busy/crowded. The service is great if you want to stay at one place for your whole trip and It's great for families. They offer children programs and evening shows. There are enough toilets (flush!) and hot showers. We enjoyed our stay

This was a bit more of a car-camping experience than we wanted. We were tucked amidst RVs bigger than our house and had to listen to neighboring campers solve all of life's problems. However, the grounds were well-kept, all showers and bathrooms very clean, and perfectly located to take in the local sites and hikes. We were late in applying so there were no more "primitive" grounds available...I guess we got what we paid for.
