Something not right?

Description

Got a site in the rv section of this busy campground for $32, which includes electric hook up. 27 for unserviced. Fire permit is 8 dollars. No tents at this time of the year. not the most quiet campground, as it is near the freeway and right next to the train tracks. of course the train goes by every few hours and the conductor blows his horn real loud when he passes the campground. clean bathrooms have flush toilets and there are also showers here. also a dump station and potable water.

If you enjoy trains thundering through your campsite and blowing its hone 24/7 then this is the one for you.
There aren’t many showers and the temperature can be hit and miss. They can also be quite a distance away from where you are, so many people drive there.
Each site is a double so you may get lucky and have a quiet couple next your van, or you may get unlucky and have a lot of noise.
Apart from that it’s a lovely place!

Big campground. Very very crowded and it’s early in the season still. Clean bathrooms but not many around. Power only at sites. Water and dump station available though. Good location for lakes

Nice campground, still lots of snow. Didn't hear any trains go by between about midnight and 8 am. No train whistles or horns heard at all.

Open in the winter! They have a few plowed through back in sites and pull through. Currently $36 a night CAD for power hook up.

Interesting campsite but by far the cheapest option when staying in Lake Louise!
We were in the hard sided campground where two campsites are side by side (like double campsites for provincials).
Surprisingly came with a power hookup but no fire pit.
The trains are very loud when going past, didn’t bother us as we are heavy sleepers but if you are not or have kids you will get woken up by multiple trains going past with their horns every hour.
We didn’t have showers in our loop so needed to drive to the showers.
Overall I would stay here again.

Weird campsite, our section did not have fire rings which is unlike every other national park I've been too. Some of them do and some don't so double check, you are not allowed a fire without one! But it did come with power which is so unexpected. And two motorhomes to a site, no privacy. Our neighbour was up all night opening hatches and shining his torch in our windows... good location but definitely a step down in quality from others in the area.

Managed to snag a last minute spot in the softside area. Site L9. Stunningly beautiful wooded campground. Protected by electric fence from wildlife. Most money I have ever paid for a campsite. Over $50 Canadian. Charged a fire pit fee even though we didn't want it. Charged a booking fee too. Great bathroom and shower building. Nice trails. Almost made up for a rainy day.

Winter comes early here! Ground well covered in snow and it was -28C in the morning. We took a spot close to the washrooms and the hot showers were welcome. Self-check in for $32, cash or fill out a form for credit card. Sanidump is open (1 lane plowed) but our gate valve was frozen :( .

Drive through RV sites, clean, fine, have electrical. You share a lot but honestly you leave to experience anything anyway. Plenty of dump stations which is a welcome change to sitting in line. Big fault is the trains that pass ALL night are loud and literally right next to some sites. Bathrooms are clean and literally the nicest ones we’ve had on our entire trip across canada (hah!), all water is potable, lots of showers. Recommended to stay in the rv after dark due to grizzly bears, have to make sure your site is bare when you aren’t there… It’s fine. 46$ for the night tx in, super fair.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Hot showers, clean toilets, sani dump and potable water. No water at the sites, you can fill up at the dump or the washroom buildings have a tap outside too.
Yes you are very close to your neighbours but that hasn't bothered us.
The only negative things I have to say is the train coming past regularly, also during the night, and blowing his horn multiple times. VERY loud. Also the shower building were a 1 km walk from our spot and we aren't even at the end of the campground. Lots of washrooms everywhere though.

Stayed 1 night. It's a decent campground. Stayed at a tent site. Sites are clean and level. Privacy is good but not great. The campground is next to train tracks and we had 4-5 trains blowing whistles overnight. They have showers, toilets, and dishwashing sinks but I didn't use any of them. $38.50/night.

Report Check-In

Starting with the positives, hot showers, potable water and easy dump stations…..The train is SO loud, maybe we just had a spot too close to the track but every couple of hours that horn would blast! The sites also have zero privacy which didn’t bother us too much but for $34 a night I wasn’t a huge fan of this campground, however it does the job as there is no where else to go in Lake Louise especially in a big rig.

Only one open in winter, nice with fire pits and hot showers

Open all year. Checked in at 10:30 am ($33 CAD which is ~$26 USD for 120/30/50 electric) today and stayed in spot 97 (end of open area back by the river). There was no host/employee at booth so as instructed self registered. Hoped to pay on-line but unable to reserve these spots as that ended in October. Many spots available and it was an easy process (actually paid in USD unsure if that was an issue, but didn’t hear anything to the contrary). This is Lake Louise Campground 2 (hard sided they call it) as not tents are allowed. It is central to many things/activities and for some peace and beauty on the back side of the property is a stream which is accessible. Yes there are train tracks and trains do roll through - I don’t make an issue of it. Sites are interesting in that there are two per “pull in” (side by side) so if the campground was full each person would have a neighbor. Fire pits (you can purchase wood $8 CAD), picnic tables, lots of beautiful trees and level spots with brand new electric boxes that contain household plug, 30 and 50 amp. No water hookups. Dump station is large/numerous lanes (although just one open this time of year) and grouped near the front of the campground. Potable water is available and there was sign saying to fill up at the bathroom building (there is a room with sinks for washing dishes - this is where I figure one would fill their water jugs). Bathroom were very clean and the shower was hot - very nice actually. I would definitely stay here again for the price, but for those who want everything (total peace, total privacy, all hookups) this might not be the place for you. This is my first Canadian Park campground and if all are similar, I would say they are doing things right. Forgot to add: LTE Verizon Service, no issues.

10/21/21 180 pull through spaces open all year. Electricity only. $41.80C includes electricity and fire permit. Clean and well maintained. Close to a small river with nice trail. Trains come buy but far enough away to not be bothersome.

Hard side camp ground at Lake Louise.

Smoke from the BC wild fires have made the sky overcast.

Light rain started after we set up camp.

Try and book Camp Site No 135 for next time

Camping près du Lac Louise et du lac Moraine toilettes propres douches avec suffisamment d’eau chaude gratuite,seul B molle le sifflet du train jusqu’à tard le soir et vraiment très tôt le matin les terrains sont trop collés les un à côté de l’autre en paire de 2 sur chaque terrain ,mais plus facile pour les plus gros véhicule de stationner.

The price still holds at $33 for sites with electricity. No water at sites, so be sure your tank is full. You can get water at the dump station where there are SIX bays! The site arrangement is unusual - two campers are side-by-side in a big space. Be sure to park close to your designated side or you might be looking into the window of your neighbour's rig. All sites are pull-through. Good cell signal. Very very busy area so plan your visits carefully.

Beau camping, les douches les plus belles que j’ai vue à date. Par contre on c’est fait avertir de partir rendu au matin, car nous avion enfreint le règlement avec une tente sur le toit du campeur et les toits mous sont interdits à cette période de l’année.

Snow covering the sites. Self registration at this time of the year. A couple of sites closed. I have attached images with info from the entrance sign. Please read them.

Not crowded in October that's for sure. The hot showers here are amazing. Verizon service is sketchy. We stayed one night and it was great ! And I don't much care for campgrounds.

Huge camping. Not quiet, railway next to thé camping, and lots of trains even during the night. No laundry. Free shuttle to the "village" where you can take buses for lake Louise and lake Moraine. Grocery is very expensive at the village. Take what you need from Jasper or Banff

Report Check-In

the campground is huge and separated for cars+tents or RVs. Fire pits and picnic tables and depending on the spots more or less privacy. Toilets are located all over the campground, however there was only one house with 5 showers for women for all the campground, of which one was out of order and 2 had less pressure than the taps in the toilets. Showers are cold in the evening.

Report Check-In

Nice forested campground within walking distance of the village with a shuttle bus up to lake Louise and Maraine Lake ($6). The showers are warm and the toilets are clean. The whole.campsite is surrounded by an electric fence to keep out bear. Lots of cute little gophers around.

great little campground. pretty quiet for the area. yes, the train is loud, but slept through it. plus the train signals when it is coming around to morants curve, which is a cool spot for a photo.
great campground if you want to get up early for sunrise at moraine lake.
flush toilets (some toilets were closed in some loops), showers.
village is pretty close for gas and groceries.
there is currently lots of construction going around the entrance so traffic got a little busy coming and going

End May it was quiet... half of the sites under maintenance. We came around 11am to secure two nights but saw RV’s checking in till late evening. Tent section was closed. As Louise parking was full had to take yellow school bus (free) to overflow lot from where buses go to Louise lake for CAD 4 pp every 15 minutes. You can get another bus from there to go to lake Moraine.It being Sunday things were busy but organised. We hiked till mirror lake trying to get to lake Agnes but it got very slippery in the end. Hard to wrap head around for folks living on tropics but chains on shoes would have helped.

Report Check-In

Very expensive, about 2/3 of the site is currently under construction. Train horn is really loud and right next to the camping sites.. If you just want to stay for a night to sleep and dont need any power or showers, go to the overflow parking.

Nice campground, 32CAD with elec. Train is noisy but otherwise, all good. If the water at the dumping station is closed (winter/beg spring), try the toilet, there is an outside tap.

Report Check-In

Had 80 sites to choose from as its winter and most people aren’t camping at this pt.
Train wasn’t too bad the 2 nights I was there.
Bathrooms close to the RV sites were shut down for winter.
Bathrooms that were open had to drive to, were clean and hot showers were fantastic, no extra pay needed so could actually wash my hair.
Good location for coming back from Icefields Parkway and visiting Lake Louise.

Nice campground but that train.... 3x in the night verry loud Horn. You can not sleep trough that. Only stay if you have to... hot showers are Good but sleep is better

Just okay. Only the RV places were open, the tent sites all closed. So in van not very nice to stay, but fine for the night. Hot showers were amazing. Separate toilet buildings could use renovation (or at least cleaning). Taps with potable water (if not frozen, as were they case when we were there).
