On the shore of the Athabasca River, Wapiti campground has nice private sites for tenting and electrical hook up spots for RVs. However, what makes Wapiti unique is that it operates year-round, offering 362 sites in the summer, and 93 winter camping spots with amenities like hot showers, electricity and fire rings. Wapiti is a great campsite for family outings at any time of year. It’s close to town for supply runs or rainy day movies, and in the winter campers often get first crack at the slopes and cross country trails (because to really appreciate a campfire, you have to use it to thaw your ski boots!)

Camped overnight December 22-23rd. In summer you might have to reserve months in advance, but we arrived without reservation to find no one camping. We chose the site closest to the showers and flush toilets for convenience. My daughter had been asking to camp for some time and

A lot of the sites were closed and no water was available. A bit difficult to get registered because the office was only open til 5:30. But the campground was neat and would likely be a lot better in the summer.

We stayed here from 13th to 15th October. The area for the “self-registration” campers was OK: enough space for our RV and the most important thing for the season: the washrooms were opened, warm and they have showers. In addition, the views were amazing.

This has definitely been the best campsite on our trip (and one of the only ones open after Thanksgiving). It’s in a great location near Jasper just off Route 93 (Icefield’s Parkway). Plots do seem very close together compared to Tunnel Mountain II but still give some privacy.

We stayed here from October 1, 2018 - October 5, 2018 in campsite FF18. We loved our site, and found that the whole campground was very well maintained. There were large washrooms that were easily accessible from pretty much every campsite. They did have some issues with their

Good question, You can come and go from the campground as you wish. The gates are not locked. As long as you are quiet and do not disturb your neighbors there should be no problem at all.

Hi jody We tented so I'm not sure about power or generators or dumping but I'm pretty sure that the wapiti camping website will be able to help with the answers. I have tented there in January and the showers were on. Hope this helped. Happy camping Stacey

We got there mid afternoon and there were lots of site left. But if you reserve you can get choice of site and they have to save it for you. Firewood is in a huge pile by showers and you can drive your car up and get some anytime.

Great question, You may cook and wash up at your campsite. However, we ask that you pack up all of your food related items and store them away when you are away from your site. You will receive an information package when you arrive at the campground. This will include information regarding bear proofing your site. Happy Camping
