There is no better place to stay while visiting Lake Louise than the Lake Louise Campground. Open year round the Lake Louise Campground has everything you could need in all seasons. Winter Camping in Lake Louise Campground offers something very special – the limited other campers in the campground but the views never change. Located just minutes to the Village of Lake Louise this campground had everything we needed for a night stay!

Winter camping in Lake Louise is great the spots are huge and can accommodate RV’s up to 50 feet in length! You don’t find that very often at most Parks Canada campgrounds. Most of the time we have a hard time fitting our 24′ RV in spots.

What You Need To Know about Winter Camping in Lake Louise Campground

-It can be a bit noisy since the campground is so close to the train tracks. We heard trains going through a lot during the night.

-The bathrooms are a bit of a drive (or walk if your up for it in the cold!). There is only one main bathroom and shower house open which is located on your way into the campsite. Depending on which campsite you choose you could be a ways away.

-The fee is $32.30/per night for an electrical site (all of the sites are electrical).

-There are no reservations in the winter and Lake Louise Campground runs on a first come, first serve basis. We pulled in about 9pm at night in November and there was maybe only three other RVs in the entire campground – so you likely have nothing to worry about during the winter months.

-All the sites get ploughed out so you have a level place for your RV to park.

Winter Camping in Lake Louise is the perfect place to call home base to explore this incredible area that should not be missed on your road trip through the Rockies.
