RV travel is about exploring new places and undertaking new adventures, and one of the most majestic countries in the world is just a border away. Canada is packed with scenic parks, bustling cities and some of the best sites in the world for RV travelers. And one of the country’s most famed sites is the historic Banff National Park in Alberta — an outdoor wonderland that is also Canada’s oldest national park.
About Banff National Park
Although Banff’s claim to fame may be its age (it was established back in 1885), its most incredible features are far beyond its years. Banff spans roughly 2,564 square miles in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and is one of the most scenic national parks in the entire world. It is home to mountains, valleys, glaciers, meadows, rivers, forests, and the famous, aquamarine-colored Lake Louise.
Outdoor Adventures Await
Because of Banff National Park’s diverse natural surroundings, it’s ideal for outdoor adventures of all kinds in all seasons. The warmer months are ideal for backpacking, mountain biking, bird watching, boating, canoeing, mountaineering, horseback riding, scuba diving, and snapping photos of the park’s endless wonders.
Winter offers just as many outdoor adventures as the warmer months with ice skating, ice diving, skiing, snowboarding, ski touring, snowshoeing, waterfall ice climbing, cross-country skiing, and even cozy hot springs to dip into on a cool Canadian day.
Parking Your RV at Banff
Banff National Park is home to roughly 16 campsites ranging from primitive setups to un-serviced sites with washrooms and full electrical sites. There is a dump station at the park that’s available for an $8.80 fee, and campers must purchase a new fire permit each day. Electrical sites are available on the breathtaking Lake Louise and at Tunnel Mountain.
And don’t forget to call the park ahead of time to ensure there is a space reserved for your RV at the campsite you desire.
