Decided in the spur of the moment to camp here last year with our dog, walked-in and got a beautiful campsite. The morning fog over the lake adds a wonderful serene beauty to this really picturesque spot. Well managed, level campground and friendly guy at the outpost :)

This was an excellent sport to stay. the campground was clean, the washrooms were well cared for and cleaned. A draw back is there are no showers on this campground. We stayed over the long weekend in August the campground was full.

We really enjoyed tenting here, and really wished we had more than one night! The site was even and clean, the facilities were clean and functional, and the surroundings were gorgeous. A stretch of the drive in sites are quite close to the road but fortunately it is not too busy so we weren't bothered by it. We're pining for a lakeside site next time though!

Room Tip: Site number 44 looked incredible...the best view of the lake, as well several of the walk in sites.

We stayed two nights in an oTENTik in two jack lakeside campground and loved it! BBQ included and unlimited firewood! Staff were extremely helpful and friendly! OTENTik was very clean and comfortable and the main bathroom and shower area in campsite very well kept. Beautiful views of the lake. Use BACTRAX in Banff for camping supplies they are very reliable and good value.

We stayed at this site for one night on our way though Banff. The site was great, but very open and thinly treed. Great views of the lake and full bathrooms that were fairly clean. Not the best campsite ever, but definitely beats some others around the Banff/Jasper area.

We came here on a Friday morning during the August long weekend with our fingers crossed. We had a feeling the Two Jack Lakeside campground would be impossible to get in and tried our luck at Two Jack Main and we were the 3rd last group of people who were able to secure a campsite. No reservations allowed at either.

We got a spot in loop #2, site D. It was situated high and away from the main road and it provided a lot more privacy that those close to main road at lower elevation which was quite exposed to the world and close to both bathrooms and garbage bin; you wouldn't want your site there.

The bathrooms were relatively clean and there was a a shelter with a sink and running water for doing dishes along with tables and benches. Fire permit was mandatory and you can take all the firewood you need. Park wardens at the site were very friendly and ensured the campgrounds were safe and quiet by frequent patrolling. As the other reviewer noted, no showers but we were aware of that before going.

Because this site was close to everything, the following activities were accessible within a short drive: ice cream and short walk at Lake Minnewanka, sushi & groceries in Banff, round trip 1 hour hike around Johnston Lake.

Room Tip: Good campsite would be one higher in elevation, away from main road, washrooms and garbage bin.

This was the best campsite I have ever visited. The views, especially on the lake, are amazing and the sites are well kept with flat tent ground and fire pits. There is also unlimited firewood for a small fee and close bathrooms/hot showers. During peak season you will want to arrive early to get the best spots. #28 has an amazing view and access to the lake.
