“Great place to camp, especially if you get a river spot”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This is a nice campground located on the river. There are lots of trees, shade and the spots are quite large. Some of their spots are a little too open, but meant for RV's, the rest are well treed. The showers take loonies, but you get a very generous 6 minutes or more from them. I think for the number of spots in tha campground that the available showers (4) where probably a little short. The bathrooms where clean and tidy. There are lockers for you food as you are in bear country. Only downside really was that its a busy place, so the office was a little rushed with me when I called for my confirmation (I had booked online). I would recommend reservations for this place.
Oh, if you don't like trains, don't stay on the river side of the camp ground, they come by often.

Room Tip: Ask for a river spot if you want to be by the kicking horse river, or if you want privacy, they have...

Well we arrived once again just before they were closing and the host was wonderful. We went to one campsite, started setting up when we noticed that the camper beside us was using all the electrical outlets. Went and notified the host and she quickly moved us, really concerned on how the other camp site was using all the electrical. She moved us to the handicap space right by the office and it as great. No noise and very close to the washrooms. She was very kind and understanding. Would stay here again just for the friendliness that we had.

Room Tip: would stay here again, real quiet and nice location, puppy loved it

This is the third time we have stayed at Golden Municipal Camp ground. It is clean, quiet and well maintained. It is great to have access to a laundry facility. The staff are helpful and friendly.
Check in was great no hassle with our reservation. Many amenities are within walking distance. Great to be so close to the local swimming pool.
We love the trains!

Plenty of trees, right by the river. The trains are not awesome, as the tracks are right across the river, but you hardly notice them. Good bathroom facilities, hot showers (for a fee). Plenty of tent and trailer sites.

Small office with most of the "emergency" items you'll need for camping. They have firewood, $8 for a crate. We come rafting every June, and always camp at the Municipal Campground.

Room Tip: There are no rooms, it's a campsite :) The further you are from the river, the less you'll...

I spent 3-9 day vacations at this campground (July, Aug and Sep 2013). The scenery is spectacular, the staff are great, and I love the trains. I have been camping here for over 25 years and it keeps calling me back. You can walk to anywhere in town for groceries, dining or a pint on a patio, or just to walk along the river path which goes for miles. The facilities are great and I have met many town people who have stopped to talk and who I look forward to seeing next year. I have met campers from many countries and they are all impressed with our country and the campground. Give it a try and see for yourself how truly awesome this campground is. I will be back next year!

We stayed here one night on our way back home. We were kept awake until 3am by the people in the next campsite. I don't think they would classify their actions as 'partying' - they were just 3 people sitting around the fire listening to music, drinking, telling stories and occasionally erupting in laughter. But they were about 10 feet away from us so that's enough to keep us awake.
If this campground wants to be family friendly, they have to do a better job communicating to people what is allowed and not allowed.

We had a one night stay here as we made our way east to Banff and just want to compliment the staff on being very friendly and helpful during our stay. We had some issues with our RV rental and the staff went out of their way to try and help us. Though the train tracks were close this really didn't bother during the night and provided some entertainment for our young boys in the morning.
