Did I miss something? The fellow said Banff, Jasper...both federal parks. Open to all and not impacted by any BC restrictions. Yes, the Rockies are both within provincial and federal boundaries. I wouldn't hesitate to advise come on....yes, you may have to be a bit creative for your night camp. It may not be a campsite with fire pit and so on..might be a rest area..or a gravel pit.

No off grid camping allowed in Federal Parks..at all.

Caveat is...when the border opens, there will be just a huge amount of US travellers and they'll over-run most all of it.

I'm a little late to the dance, but here is a link to three blog posts that might be of interest:

Peter Lougheed

Banff and Jasper

Lake Louise and Yoho

In general, I would say that the Canadian Rockies are the most spectacular area I have ever seen in my life, and I have done a lot of traveling. I would recommend spending as much time in that area as you can, if you hike. If you don't hike, a week or ten days might be enough.

Not sure if anyone has tried to book today, but I'm down to ~32,000 people in front of me from ~47,000 when I started to wait.

I actually scored a site!

I was number 77 this morning when the site went live....I couldn't believe my eyes. We got a site at Lake Louse Hard Sided camping as well as Banff Trailer Court, full hookups.

Last week Friday I was able to score a site at Wabbasso near Jasper, so we're good to go.

I like Wabasso, A little further out and quiet. Have not been there for a long time. Sites were smaller and I believe they still are.

so much for staying to your local area for travel recomendations. I was there this morning and I was 57000 when it went live. last week jasper sold out in under and hour, the week befor Mt revelstoke sold out in under 20 min.
