Dogs MUST be on a leash in the National Park. And NOT allowed on trails. Leave it home?


There are restrictions re dogs on some trails in the Canadian NP system but mostly they are allowed on the trails. Research where in the NP you are going to get up to date hiking info on which trails allow dogs.Contrary to what was quoted above by the former NP warden,most NP trails in Canada
allow dogs if they are on a leash.

If you haven't already done so review theBanff, Lake Louise, Jasper from Nov \Dec.
The O|P of that thread was planning 5-6 nights in the parks but the itinerary discussed was heavy for that time frame. Your 10 days is more realistic particularly if you want to spend any time in the towns. You could also add a trip on 93 to Radium or 16 to Mt Robson.

How big is your rig, and do you need hookups? If you have a small rig, and can do without hookups, Wilcox Campground is well located -- lots of hiking to do!!

And if you are too big for Wilcox but want to spend some time between Lake Louise and Jasper consider the
David Thompson Resort on Highway 11 (good road).

I'm surprised noone has mentioned it yet but whistlers campground in Jasper is closed this year so it will be harder to get a spot. The reservations open in the next few days, I'd look into booking as soon as possible.

Reservation stated on Jan 9th online. The dates went last year were basically all taken within a few hours. It may not be a problem for your time frame. We were there in mid July. Banff and Jasper were the highlight of our 12500 mile trip to Alaska. In Banff there is an off lease city dog park, The Calgary Stampede is in July.

Not sure what campgrounds will be open in April. Check ahead.
Whistlers, as noted, will be closed this summer.
Remember July 1 is Canada Day, and many of our good neighbors will be looking for campgrounds at that time. This is especially true of Banff which is so close to Calgary.
You should be making your reservations by now.
