Icefields Parkway/Jasper

I am planning a trip to Jasper. There are 3 or 4 nice looking campgrounds with hook ups in the park, Wapiti, Whistlers, and Wabasso. Has anyone stayed in any or all of these? If so, pros and cons of each? Do you have a preference? Any feedback would be appreciated.

we stayed at the wapiti campground last fall. Tried to get into whistler but the hookups were all taken. Wapiti is a tent campground with an overflow for whistler if you want electric.It's really a parking lot with 30 amp power in each stall. If you google jasper you will find a lot of sites with info., and the parks canada sites are pretty good. I think the watchword is reserve a site or get there really early..............Phil.

It has been a number of years since we were that way. If you're coming through Calgary, there are several Provincial Parks as you near Banff. As I recall we spent a night at the Bow Valley PP. The sites were very nicely spaced and each was surrounded in wild roses. The facilities were 1st rate. We then spent a couple of nights at the National Park adjacent to Lake Louise. It was a bit more crowded and if you can make a choice, try to get a site away from the RR tracks as the trains run through there on a regular basis, day and night.

As I recall Wapiti and Whistlers were the only campgrounds in Jasper with hookups. We were able to get into Whistlers without reservations but that was probably pure dumb luck. Each morning and evening, we were treated to a herd of elk passing between the forest on one side and the river on the other. They would quietly pass by our trailer seemingly oblivious to our presence,

We stayed in Whistlers last year. Very nice campground.

As others have said, best get reservations in advance, as it's busy.

Wonderful place to visit. We stayed in each of the 2 campgrounds near Jasper. we did not have electricity since we did not make reservations. Bring some warm clothing. We caught a cold, rainy spell the first time. Stayed in a provincial campground near Radium Hot Springs that was very nice, and in a private one near there that was good also.
