Sitting at the base of one of Jasper’s premiere dayhikes, with which it shares its name, Wilcox campground is also down the road from the Columbia icefield, offering access to a variety of family friendly amenities and day trips.
Campground facilities are rustic, and include outhouses, picnic tables, cook shelters and metal fire rings.
