Friends camping in Banff National ParkParks Canada


Add to my moments

Imagine waking up early on a summer’s morning in a tent perched lakeside. You are lying cosily in your sleeping bag watching the rising sun paint the mountain peaks gold and listening to the birds chirp to one another. Immersed in the beautiful scene, your day-to-day life feels so far away.

Camping in Banff & Lake Louise is a great way to immerse yourself in the stunning scenery of Banff National Park and enjoy the simplicity and cost savings of tent-living. 

There are many options for camping. If you are feeling adventurous and in need of some solitude, pitch a tent in the backcountry at a Parks Canada campsite. If you’d prefer to be able to easily visit the shops and restaurants of the town of Banff, try a campground close to town. For the comforts of home on wheels, there are a number of full-service campgrounds where you can park up and plug in with your recreational vehicle. 

If you want to enjoy the tranquility and views of camping with comfort and convenience, you could try Parks Canada’s oTENTik experience. A cross between an A-frame cabin and prospector tent, an oTENTik offers stunning mountain views without any set-up required by campers. Find out more on Parks Canada’s website
