The problem in Jasper is that Whistlers, by far their largest campground, is being totally rebuilt and will remain closed until 2021. The KOA you mention will be at Hinton, about 15 minutes outside the Park Gate, an hours travelling time from Jasper Townsite and a bit more to most of the attractions you will want to see. I just wanted to be sure you are aware of this.

Don’t have anything particular to add except that it sounds like a great trip. Have fun!

Thank you for the tips! I did book sites last night. I got the very last spots available (for my size) in those areas, and the sites are less than desirable. But, I'll make it work. I thought I was giving myself enough time to book (7 months out). In Jasper, I could only get the overflow camping area (basically a parking lot with no services). I called KOA in Jasper this morning and luckily got a spot...not perfect, but at least I'll have some hook-ups. I will book earlier next time I plan a trip to Canada. It will be super busy, but have to do these trips in the summer when my kids are out of school. Some day, hope to have the flexibility to go anytime of the year. Thank you everybody!!


The Jasper KOA is pretty much a parking lot but has everything you need and staff has always been pleasant with us. Playground, full hookups etc. If you like baked lasagna or pizza Gus' Pizza in Hinton is a must.

Also there is another Hot Springs ( Ainsworth Hot Springs ) about 10 or 12 miles south east of Kaslo on Hwy 31. They have a cave you can swim through. Back when we were kids there were no lights in the cave. Another 15 minutes south east of Ainsworth Hot Springs is another ferry ( Kootenay Lake Ferry) this ferry is the longest free ferry ride in the world. Even if you don’t continue on Hwy 3-A towards Creston BC. A back and forth trip on the ferry is well worth the views. You can also do Day Hikes up Kokanee Glacier. Easiest access is from the Nelson side off Hwy 3-A. You don’t want to take your trailer up to the parking lot as the road is gravel and parking space is limited. There is also a zip line up that road, however I haven’t done that, but have lots of friends that have. Also look up Cody Caves, I think they are open again during the summer, but you will have to heck that’s out yourself.
Tons more stuff to keep the kids and mom and dad busy.
