While has been years since I've been there, Whistler's Campground has ALWAYS been worth a visit. Our kids used to love it there (indoor flush toilets and showers) and after a day of adventure, the evening nature-themed show put on by Parks Canada staff was a favourite way to wind up the day. There is even audience participation in the show.
My buddies and I usually began and ended treks into the backcountry with a staging or recovery overnight stay at Whistler's Campground. After 5-8 days on wilderness trails, Whistler's was a welcome waystop to make ourselves fit to rejoin civilization. Cleaning gear and ourselves there made our homecoming more comfortable for all concerned.
Reserve a spot and chill in the restful Rockies. Lots to see and do around Jasper to keep you as busy or as quiet as you like. Bring your hiking boots, camera, and smiling face.
- 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
