We just spent 8 nights at this campground and would go back again. We had a full service campsite, water, sewer and electrical. The campground is large but you do not feel like it. Each area is set up with wide spaces and trees between each site. If you want a totally dark experience then this might not be your campground, it has street lights, which makes it easy to move around at night. The only problem we encountered was the rutting elk that make their home in the campground. The park service tries to keep the animals away from the people for their safety. But hearing the bugling from the elk is an experience in itself. While close to the highway, we heard no street noise. It is located just outside Jasper and close to many attractions in the area. Great place to camp.

JasperPark, Visitor Experience at Whistlers Campground, responded to this reviewResponded 15 November 2013

While street lights are there for public safety in Jasper's busiest campgrounds, there are some great locations to view night skies from Whistlers campers. Our recommended area is to proceed to Marmot Meadows- just on the south edge of the campground that we use as a group campground for the Park. This is a large, treeless meadow in a montane grassland that affords wide open night sky views. For two years running, Park Interpreters have led amateur astronomy programs to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower in mid summer in this very location. It can be accessed by anyone in the campground by following the Whistlers Campground trail to it's southern end and then walking into the meadow from there. Other off campground locations to go include Pyramid Island, Lake Annette, the Columbia Icefield or Maligne Lake.

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!

Room Tip: Jasper is fricken cold at night...don't do like us...go there equipped for cold nights! block 1 and 2 are close to the showers...aim for those (unless there are other shower blocks we are unaware of)!

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.
