oTENTik camping in Banff National Park

Add to my moments

There is nothing quite like getting close to nature and hanging out by the campfire with good friends. Parks Canada's new oTENTik experience makes it easier than ever.  

oTENTiks are the perfect introduction to camping for families or new campers looking to explore the wonders of Banff National Park. 

A cross between an A-frame cabin and a canvas tent, these units can fit up to six people and come equipped with almost everything you need to enjoy a proper "glamping" experience, including electricity, heat and bunk beds.  

For information or to reserve a site, visit For information on the campgrounds of Banff National Park, please visit Parks Canada.

In Banff National Park, the oTENTiks are located in the lakeside area of the Two Jack campground, a beautiful setting located just a short drive from downtown Banff. They are also conveniently located at Tunnel Mountain Campground - accessible from the town of Banff by public transit.

Looking to rent some camping gear? Check out the selection of tents and other adventure gear from Snowtips-Bactrax in Banff.  

Please also remember that camping in Banff National Park comes with some important responsibilities on your behalf. Please properly store all food and keep your campsites clean.
