Lake Louise Campground is a nice inexpensive place to stay on your trip to Banff. Sites are well maintained, and bathrooms are pretty close to every site that we could tell. There are a few things we found out that were different than the campgrounds that we stayed at within the American National Park system which will be helpful if you stay here:
1. Showers: Showers are not pay showers, which I have never experienced in a National park. This being said, free showers are nice, but cold showers aren't very nice. Since they are free, people stay in longer than pay showers and use up more hot water. Get your shower in the morning, or early afternoon or late at night, if you want a hot shower.
2. Fire permits: You need to buy a fire permit for I believe $8 per night, but once you buy the permit you can have all the wood you want for free. Not a bad system, but different from what I've experienced.
3. They are very strict about having only 2 tents per site, so if you're going as a group, just keep that in mind.
Overall Lake Louise campground is a pleasant and affordable place to stay, and it's in a great location to get to hiking and other outdoor beauty of Banff National Park.
