10 amazing camping spots in Canada
Banff National Park (1 hour 30 minutes from Calgary)
Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, Banff is Canada’s oldest national park; it has been around since 1885., Banff includes 2,468 campsites spread out over 13 different campgrounds, so campers have a lot of locations to choose from. The park is home to all kinds of species of bear, moose, deer and birds. Visit the historic site of the Cave and Basin, which is a basin full of natural thermal water located in an underground cave. Relax in the soothing water of the Upper Hot Springs pool, natural hot springs located in a spa and bathhouse in the park. Make a stop at one of Banff’s picture-perfect lakes, such as Lake Louise, Bow Lake or Johnson Lake, which are ideal spots for canoeing, hiking or kayaking and, of course, offer beautiful photo ops. Another popular tourist area near Lake Louise is the Plain of Six Glaciers Trail—the famous 10 kilometre hike offers a stunning view of peaks, glaciers and wildlife.
