I plan to go to Lake Louise around Aug 1st for a week. There are a number of electrical hookups -- NO WATER sites available to reserve.

Is there a dump/fill station at the campground so we can dump and fill?


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Ear plugs for the train, if you're not used to the noise of heavy freight rolling through several times a night. The engineers are very generous with the horn, I think they enjoy how it echoes in the canyon.

Listen, IF and I mean IF you can get a site, try Peter Lougheed Provincial park Boulton Creek, where you will have water and power and one of the most beautiful parks in N. America. You can take that back road into Canmore that is fun and the scenery down there is as good as anything in Glacier. AND you will likely see some Grizzlies. Banff Lake Louise area is beautiful except for the mass quantities of people. Peter Lougheed is a hidden gem and the Albertans will probably be mad at me for talking about it. There is also a private park down that way that isn't bad either for full hook-up and a bit closer.

My favorite "scary" experience. Going to one of those lakes up there in May and watching a couple of busloads of tourists from a different part of the world walk out on the melting ice shelf and start jumping up and down...in unison. Little waves moved out into the lake... I was wondering what they hoped would happen and wondered if anyone was extrapolating outcomes? The laws of physics are immutable. I mean like a hundred people out there. I remember me and this Texan standing there looking at each other with wide eyes and me saying somebody is going to die. I tried to talk to someone and they didn't understand me and took a picture of me in my USMC boonie. Really... The facilities were not open yet so no Rangers and no signal so we jumped in the truck and fortunately ran into a LEO a few miles down the road. I told him and his face got white and he jumped in his car and took off like a bat out of heck... Well, I never read any stories in the press about it so, I guess it worked out... To be honest, all of U.S. and Canadians were standing there holding our collective breath and praying... Everybody else was having a good ole time...

Ran into the same group of tourists in Yellowstone a couple weeks ago... the Bear they were taking pictures of was about 15 ft from my wife’s window in the truck. Cars and tour busses parked all over the road and ditch... then the tourists started moving closer and closer to Mr Bear. One guy got between my truck and the bear so he was even closer to the Bear than 15 ft. Then 6 or 7 more of his travel companions came up and stood beside him.... wife rolled down the window and asked if they thought it was a good idea to get that close to a bear who was obviously hungry as he was ripping a log apart.... no answer, she asked again... nope not a one of them spoke English.
That was enough for me.... I laid on the horn and off Mr. Bear took off into the bush. This tousiest by my truck were pissed as were the other 50 or so that has stopped on the road and we’re slowing walking towards Mr. Bear.
I don’t think anyone that was standing outside of their vehicles had any idea what could happen to them in a split second....
Growing up in bear country ( had a Griz behind our house 4 weeks ago) I know what Bears are like in the spring after a long sleep and being hungry ta boot. I may have gotten some bad words said to me in a few languages that I didn’t understand and a few special waves.... but every body got dinner that night, and hopefully Mr. Bear came back after dark and got into that log to get what ever was in it.
Kavoom.....Them tourists are everywhere...

Reminds me of my story about the woman from New York at the South Entrance to Yellowstone trying to fill the viewfinder of her Instamatic with a bull moose by walking up to it. But I have told it enough on this forum that I won't repeat it!
