“Close to town and Tram”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Stayed here for two nights. Sites were level and had full hookups. Very neat and clean. Woodsy atmosphere. Prices were reasonable. $40 per night with taxes. For $8.80 extra they will supply you with firewood for the pit.

Room Tip: We were in site 59A. Was able to drive right into it. All were pull-throughs.

We decided to go camping spur of the moment as we both somehow managed to have the same 3 days off. It didn't occur to us till we hit Jasper that so many campgrounds would be booked solid on the weekend however we managed to get a very nice site at whistler. It was a little pricey as we were tenting and it was a normal site not even a powered one, but it was a very nice site right next to a little creek. Even though it was more expensive than the average campsite in Jasper, we would stay there again. The site that we had had more trees than average which means a lot of privacy, which is something not all campsites have.

Thanks for the review, and glad to see you had a good time last season. Indeed- most of Jasper's campgrounds fill up VERY quickly on weekends. A possible solution is to reserve in advance using reservations.pc.gc.ca and you can book for Whistlers, Wapiti or Wabasso. Most of Jasper's campgrounds are first come/first serve. Campgrounds closer to Jasper like Whistlers and Wapiti fill up fast so it's a good idea to try a midweek day first if possible if you don't plan to reserving.

This a great full service campsite. The sites are treed, pull through and quiet. There is an interpretive walking trail through the middle of it. They also have a stage and public showers. I can't comment on the showers though as I shower in my RV. They also have public washrooms in every camping loop which are clean and within walking distance of all campsites.

The Jasper townsite is a short drive or bike ride. I wouldn't say it is within an easy walking distance though. It would be a bit far if one wanted to walk it.

Thus is my favourite campsite by far.

Room Tip: Check the map when booking. They have pictures of each site as well so you can choose your site and...

Stayed here for 3 nights during our road trip through the Rockies. It's a big popular site with queues to get in (we booked several months in advance). We had a large RV and the site is laid out so that there are clusters of circles of 6-7 units branching off the main roads through the site. We had a fully serviced site - washroom was less than 100 yards away although the showers were a 10-15 minute walk across the site. Facilities clean and well cared for.

We had a fire pit and got a fire permit for a few dollars. We bought our 15 year old an axe (would never do that in the UK) and he happily chopped wood from the local woodpile for us and our neighbours.

Jasper is a short distance and is a great place with the usual variety of shops, a small supermarket, fuel stations and a variety of restaurants. It also has an excellent launderette - just the thing when you are camping. There is a RV parking lot on the edge of town but you have to cross the railway to get to it and if a train is coming you may be stationary for some time - Canadian trains are very long!!!!!!!

Lots to do and see in and around Jasper. Spent a day walking, canoeing and sightseeing at Lake Maligne. The town is at the northern end of the Icefields Parkway. There is walking, cycling, white water rafting, riding and lots of sightseeing we just didn't have time to do. Could easily have spent much longer in Jasper

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. We're happy to see you had a great camping experience at Whistlers. One note about the really LONG train delays- if you are using 93A (Hazel Avenue) to access the town of Jasper and the RV parking, you have a good chance to get stuck behind a train- Jasper is a major divisional point for the CN Railway. Local secret: drive west on Connaught Drive UNDER the train tracks and turn left again on Sleepy Hollow Road. Not only does this give you a good chance to see wildlife, but it gets you around the train if it's sitting on the crossing and causing a significant delay. RV parking is connected to the town by an underground pedway tunnel so if you are walking or biking- you won't have to wait.

The Parks Canada Campground is huge, situated at the end of the Icefields Parkway, approx. 5 km from Jasper. The campground is divided in a lot of areas, where campers & tents can be located. All sites are spacious, yet not all sites are fully serviced. In the middle of each area, one can find washrooms, yet not all areas have showers. The remote areas are close to Whistlers mountain, where you can ride Jasper Tramway, with stunning views of the surroundings. Chances are high that in the more remote areas of the campground, you'll see wildlife passing by. Including bear... which is part of nature in the rockies. Whistlers Campground is a great place to stay, yet be aware that the site is very popular. In tourist season, make sure to reserve a site in time.

Only 1 shower block on site, which is a 15 minute walk from the RV side of the park. They were very clean and tidy but the hot water was a bit hit and miss. We did see a few deer, but were surprised at that, given the amount of dogs barking. Don't however come here for the clean fresh mountain air.... everyone and his dog had a campfire going. The smell of smoke soon swept though and that was that. Not the worst campsite ever, but not the best.

Thank you for your review of Whistlers Campground. We hope you enjoyed your time in Jasper National Park, but sorry to hear that the campfire smoke was a bother. Even though the campground does have an 11pm campfire policy (fires out, quiet time), smoke can linger depending on air conditions in the valley bottom. You will be happy to know that renovations and work on the washroom buildings in the campground are actually underway this winter- so improvements for next summer will be ready for campers next summer.

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.

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.
