During the visit to Jasper , alberta decided to camp at this campground close to the city of jasper. flying out of toronto and not an avid camper booked this cottage tent nor knowing what to expect. In a nutshell highly pleased and in retrospect a wise decision due to a heavy shower in the night the tent got tested...pretty well. It is a pre fabricated tent with a wooden floor and two lights ..and baseboard heater ( came to use as it dipped to 5 in the night)..a queen bed and two bunk bed ..with its own fire place/hibachi outside and the picnic table...was perfect...with wildnerss yet the comfort..and easiness of not carrying all the accessories..the staff was friendly and helpful and amenities were at the campground was good and overall very clean. Being close to the Jasper town also helped for immidiate needs and several lovely trails all over. There is a electric connection outside at the back ..not well advertized but good for charging the blackberry..The only issue its a bit crowded but for the location and ease I recommend this ..For serious campers this may be a tad sopisticated...but it suits my style of glamping..and for 90 bucks a night its easy on the wallet...would recommend for like minded folks..specially family with kids...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Parks Canada interpreters put on evening shows all summer long, and a new interpretive trail running through the campground means it’s an easy walk or bike ride to town for an ice cream afterward. Those looking to rough it without getting their clothes too ruffled can reserve new Cottage Tents, where you bring your own food, drinks, axe and bedding, and Parks Canada will take care of everything else. ... more less
