Campsites in Banff

There are tons of great spots to camp if you are looking to spend some time outdoors in the beautiful Banff National Park. All sites are able to be booked through the Parks Canada website.

Each location is beautiful with most spots having fire pits and some with hook up options for trailers. There are also flushing toilets, showers, firewood, kitchen shelters, and sani-dumps available at some sites. Tunnel Mountain is a great place to stay if you are looking for public transportation into town and other areas of the park. Reservations are recommended as there are limited number of spots available.

I loved this campsite! The bathrooms were clean, showers comfortable with hot and cold water, and gave the camping feel with the ability to head into town for a coffee, dinner, or drinks.

I feel in love with the location of this campsite. There were so many great options for spots to stay and it was great staying so close to the Johnston Canyon Trail. It was also close to a creek and river making morning and evening walks so enjoyable.

@jessievtravel
This campsite had wonderful bathroom and shower options that were clean and comfortable to use. I didn't enjoy how close you were to other campers and sites. Just about every site is shared between two campers and there was not a ton of space to sit outside. Just to note, not all campsites have fire pits.

Hi and welcome to my page! I love to explore new places and share what I learn while I was there. I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I found my love to camp and spend time in the wilderness as well as find a great city to explore and experience. Later I moved to Calgary, Alberta and started enjoying the mountains and beautiful wilderness that Canada has to offer! I also have two dogs and have spent my fair share traveling with them whenever I can! Whether you are looking to find information on places to visit or need help planning out your trip, I hope I can be of assistance to you!
