Can anyone recommend campgrounds near Banff, especially the ones with e/w/s hookups for motorhomes?

We're hoping to extend our Glacier National Park trip over to Banff.

I would suggest the National park campground at Lake Louise.
403 522-3833
Banff National Park
Going to Banff makes the Icefields Highway to Jasper a must.

We stayed a few days at Spring Creek campgrounds in Canmore while we visited that area.

We went to Canmore to the vet while camped at Banff, it was 17 miles one way, I would not want to be there unless I could not get into the national park campground.

We went this past summer and had a wonderful time. Stayed at St Mary- East Glacier KOA at Glacier NP. We then went up to Waterton Lakes and stayed at Waterton Townsite Campsite. Nice sites with hook-ups but very windy.
After Waterton we went up to Calgary area for the Calgary Stampede (been on our bucket list) For exploring the Calgary area we stayed at Cochrane at Spring Hill RV ParkNice clean park with large sites.
In Banff we stayed at Tunnel Mountain trailer court. Elk all over the park, beautiful
Then on to Lake Louise and stayed at Lake Louise Trailer Village. In Jasper we really like Whistlers Campground. If you book early enough you can get full hook-ups.
to book for the NP go to Canada NP Reservations
We stayed all summer and had a wonderful time. Made reservations early and got hook-ups and sites big enough for us. We have a 40' MH and then we had a tow dolly also.
Have fun it is truly a beautiful trip. Any questions...just ask
