Lake Louise Campground

by K Gordon Schultz

Camp in Lake Louise, Alberta

The Lake Louise campgrounds lie in a wooded site along the Bow River, 1 km from the Village of Lake Louise and 4 km from Lake Louise itself. Several hiking and biking trails are accessible from these campgrounds.

Because the Lake Louise campground is located within habitat required by wildlife, several initiatives are in place to protect both people and animals. To educate campers, Parks Canada presents interpretive programs at campground theatres throughout the summer.

Lake Louise Trailer Campground

The trailer campground is open year round and offers:

  • 189 drive-thru sites in the summer, 30 in the winter,
  • Power hook-ups,
  • Flush toilets,
  • Piped hot and cold water,
  • Showers,
  • Recycling bins,
  • Sanitation station.

Lake Louise Tent Campground

In early spring (April/May) and late fall (October/November), tents and soft-sided trailers are not permitted in the Lake Louise Campground to help protect both people and bears. During these shoulder seasons, tenting is available at Mosquito Creek, Tunnel Mountain Campground, and Kicking Horse (closes October 6, 23 kilometres west on the Trans-Canada Highway).

From May – October, the Lake Louise Tent Campground offers:

  • 210 unserviced sites,
  • Flush toilets,
  • Piped hot and cold water,
  • Showers,
  • Kitchen shelters,
  • Fire rings and firewood,
  • Recycling bins, and
  • Food storage.
