Campgrounds & RV
Camping is very popular in Banff National Park and throughout the Canadian Rockies, and the quality of campgrounds and their surroundings is very high. Most campgrounds in the Banff area are good for both RVs and tents, although the hook-up facilities can differ between them. Reservations are strongly recommended, especially throughout the busy summer months.
Backcountry lodges are located in the wilderness, a long distance from any roads. Access is usually on foot, horseback, by helicopter, or on skis in the winter. These lodges are rustic, are normally in a stunning backcountry setting, and provide all meals. They are perfect places to get away from it all and to use as a base for hiking, horseback riding or backcountry skiing.
