Camping in Kootenay National Park

Parks Canada has three front country campgrounds and one group campground in Kootenay National Park. Located in the north, middle and south ends of the park, these campgrounds offer a variety of services while allowing visitors to unplug, relax and stay close to all of the adventure.

During peak season (mid-June until early September), there are over 300 campsites available. Demand is heaviest on long weekends between May and October and all weekends in July and August. 

Marble Canyon Campground, found in the north end of Kootenay National Park, is located close to many mountain park attractions. From Marble Canyon, visitors are only a short drive from spectacular hiking trails in Kootenay including Stanley Glacier, Floe Lake and Ball Pass. The campground’s close proximity to Banff and Yoho national parks makes day hikes on the Iceline, Taylor Lake, Bourgeau Lake and Twin Lakes trails a breeze.

McLeod Meadows, set in the centre of Kootenay National Park, is the perfect secluded sanctuary for families looking to unplug. Listen to the sound of the Kootenay River and watch for wildlife, including deer and elk. Enjoy a gentle hike to Dog Lake then take a short trip down the highway to the Village of Radium for dinner and a soak in the hot pools.
