It shouldn't be too busy after the Labour Day long weekend (Sept 3-5). Be warned, though, that the Lake Louise campground is right next to one of Canada's two main east-west railway lines. Heavy freight trains roll past, all year long and at all hours of the day and night. If you are light sleepers, you would be happier camping somewhere else in Banff. If you want to take a chance, I would recommend bringing earplugs and possibly sleeping pills.

I would agree that Country_Wife paints a bleak picture of the Lake Louise Campground. While it is located on the train line, it's a beautiful place to camp - and it's one of the only full service campgrounds in the park. The campground also has the Bow River running right through it - with it's fantastic trail system, incredible scenery and possibility of seeing wildlife it could be just the kind of experience you are looking for. While I seldom disagree with County_Wife's advice, don't let this keep you away from this place. I frequently take my children tent camping there - and we've always enjoyed this place.

It's still the busy season in early to mid - September. While I don't think you'll have problems finding a sight, I would anticipate it being busy. At this time of year, the campground will be full of folks just like you who are renting and traveling in their rental RV's.
