Whistlers Campground
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Whistler in Jasper National Park has always been a favorite of ours, especially in the early fall when the elk are in rut. What an amazing experience to see these animals firsthand.

The campground itself is well organized with good facilities and sites are very spacey for the most part.

Our only disappointment is that Park services have allowed the campground to become very rundown. Picnic tables are a disgrace - they are in disrepair (broken and with exposed nails) and badly in need of paint. Fireplaces were a small stove type that again were mostly broken. The site roadways themselves are uneven and full of ruts and holes and many could use leveling and new gravel. We did seem to find that the worst areas were the ones with full service. The sites were overall looking warn!

It would be nice to see the Park close some areas thru a rotation and do some upgrading!
Jasper has some of the most beautiful scenic areas in the world and we have many visitors here from around the world. We want to show our visitors some pride by keeping our Parks well maintained.

we stayed 3 nights at the whistler, we loved it.
it is a superorganised and well kept campground.
the campground was pretty empty, and unless we are mistaken there are only very few showers available. had it been full, mmmh, but with the amount of customers it was perfect.
each tent spot has it's on fire pit (8.80$ a day) and a huge amount of space for car/tent and anything you may have.
Toilet blocks are basic but decently clean, and the camp is very quiet.
we would definitely go back there again if in Jasper.
we would also recommend it!

great campground!

We camp here all the time. We keep coming back because we know exactly what to expect. Free HOT showers, flush toilets throughout the campground, outdoor sinks and free firewood are some of the amenities you don't get at provincial/private campgrounds. The washrooms are generally clean, even when there is a problem in the washroom it seems to get cleaned up the same day. You have to purchase a daily fire permit it is still much cheaper then places that charge for bundles of wood. Many sites are private, most are very level and easy to back the trailer in. There is an 11 pm fire ban but if you are quiet they have no problem with you staying up later. We always sit out late. The rule was only ever enforced once while we were there and it was a Friday night and I noticed there were a few loud groups of people near by. The lady was very friendly when asking us to let our fire burn out. Some sites do not have fire pits, check which ones when you book. There are always Elk. They wander right through the sites, it's great to watch. There is a playground which Wapiti across the road does not have and also an amphitheatre with daily events during the summer season. The only downfall is the shower buildings are located at the far end from where we always camp so we usually have to use our vehicle to get to them.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in August. The campsite was packed as it was the holiday weekend, despite this our campsite was spacious and relatively quiet. The campsite is so big it took around 6 minutes to drive to it once we arrived but as we had a car that was no issue. One thing I will say and this seems common with campsites in Canada is that the facilities weren't ample. We struggled to find a sink to wash our utensils and showers were limited, we are from the UK and are used to what you get at European campgrounds which are more well equipped than Canadian ones.

Also if you want a fire pit check when you book, I booked online and thought we'd have one but there are a number of camp pitches which don't have one and it's not made clear when you book.

Took us almost an hour to queue up for check in yet we was certainly not disappointed in the site we got for our RV. Set to the back of the site in a beautiful old silver berch forest. It was a bit of a walk to the central showers but the masses of resident elks make it an enjoyable walk. It's roughly a 40min walk into Jasper town (along the road). We paid roughly $35 for the night.

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...

Room Tip: there are 4 such cottage tent but the parks and canada intend to set up more...booking in the websit...

We went to Wapiti Campground and asked to book one night, The girl at the kiosk advised us to book 2 nights and cancel the second if we changed our minds. The reason, she said, is that the sites are 100% reservable and someone could book the site we were in. In that case, we'd have to move for the second night. We said okay, book 2 nights. She proceeded to do so and her computer froze. After several minutes, she handed us the slips for two nights. They were for two different sites!! She said her computer was frozen and nothing could be done. We went to the first site and it had a bunch of garbage at it. Same thing at the second site. Both sites were very open and non-private. We went back to the girl but she could not give us a refund. We left and went to the Whistlers. Ryan straightened the whole thing out. He gave an excellent, private, great site for two nights and moved our payment from the Wapiti sites to the Whistlers' sites. Thank you Ryan!! You are the best!!!

Room Tip: We like smoke-free circles/sites and Whistlers has them. Wapiti does not.
