Camping

There’s something magical about sleeping under the stars. Jasper is a year-round camping destination and can accommodate anything from a one-person bivy tent to the largest motorhome, and everything in between.

To avoid disappointment, make sure you have a camping reservation before coming to Jasper National Park.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet spot in the forest to roast marshmallows with the family, or a sunny spot to park your vacation home on wheels, or a remote camp in the backcountry, Jasper has a site for you.

At all front-country campgrounds, firewood is included with the purchase of a fire permit and bear proof lockers are offered for safe food storage. Most of our campgrounds have log cookhouses available in case the weather isn’t cooperating.

To maintain the family-friendly atmosphere that attracts millions here every year, quiet hours, including a liquor, cannabis and fire curfew, are enforced by park wardens between 11 pm and 7 am.

For campers willing to venture into the backcountry along some of Jasper’s thousand kilometres of trails and routes, and who have observed proper preparation and safety precautions, a uniquely rugged experience awaits.

Backcountry campsites range from semi-primitive (featuring regularly maintained trails, pit toilets, tent pads, food storage cables and picnic tables) to primitive (campsites will have only a pit privy, fire grate and bear pole), and travelers must ensure they know what amenities are to be expected at each individual site.

Whistlers Campground is closed for the 2019/2020 season

To ensure the quality and reliability of visitor facilities, Parks Canada is working on a reconstruction of Whistlers Campground.

Whistlers Campground is Jasper’s largest campground, with 781 campsites, visitors will be greeted with a number of infrastructure improvements.

The updates will include: a new registration centre, 17 new combined washroom and shower facilities throughout the campground, improved campsites, and wider roads for two-way traffic. Underground services, including water, sewage and electrical systems are also being replaced and existing campsites will be equipped with more 50 Amp capable power sites.
