Hi, We are from Australia and planning a 3 week trip to Canada in July this year. As part of this we will spend a week in the Rockies and a day or two in Calgary to see the Stampede at the end.
At this stage we are thinking about renting an RV for the camping experience as we have 2 kids (4 and 7). We are thinking 2-3 days Banff, 1 day Lake Louise, 1 day Icefields Hwy and 2-3 days in Jasper. Also interested in knowing what is a must see in Kootenay and maybe Yoho?
As we will be in an RV and you need one to get around, how do we reserve a campsite (physically) and then still use our RV? Many of the forums say you need to be there by 11am to get a site - well once there do we need to stay there with our RV for the rest of the day or can we drive it away and no one will take our spot? Also do we need full hookups or can we mix it up. What sort of power does an RV have of its own for an evening? Can anyone recommend the campsites they have found to be fantastic within these areas?
Thanks for your help
