Whistlers Campground

Jasper National Park

In a busy and stressful world, it’s more important than ever for people to connect with nature and rediscover the outdoors. Although we are still applying the finishing touches, we are happy to welcome you to the newly modernized Whistlers Campground. Your patience and understanding were appreciated during the construction phase and we hope you will enjoy the improvements.

What’s new?

  • A new registration centre complete with three all-gender accessible washrooms and six service desks. Information displays was added in 2022.
  • Eighteen new combined washroom and shower facilities throughout the campground. Washrooms and showers will never be more than a short walk away for alll campers.
  • Improved campsites with new picnic tables, fire pits and great views.
  • Wider roads that accommodate two-way RV traffic.
  • A separate entrance road for guests who have already registered at the registration centre.
  • Modernized and upgraded underground services including water, sewer and electrical systems. Many of the existing electrical campsites have been upgraded to 50-amp service.

These improvements will ensure the quality and reliability of visitor infrastructure and will allow Canadians to connect with nature in Jasper National Park for decades to come.

This work was part of the unprecedented $3 billion invested by the Government of Canada over five years to support Parks Canada’s infrastructure upgrades to heritage, tourism, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas across Canada.

When you arrive

Campers and visitors will see that Whistlers Campground has undergone a great deal of construction work, and that significant numbers of dead and dying trees, impacted by mountain pine beetle, have been removed.

In place of the removed trees, young saplings will flourish with the space and sunshine they now have. But trees grow slowly. It will take many years for these saplings to gain height. In the meantime, many campsites in Whistlers now have more sun and greater mountain views than before.

In areas where electrical, sewer and water services were upgraded, the ground has been significantly disturbed. Much of the campground has been re-seeded, but it will take time for natural grasses and vegetation to grow. We ask that you stay off the newly seeded areas.

You may consider bringing a self-supported tent to create a shady and dry spot at your site. Cosmetic work, including landscaping and greening-up of the campground, is ongoing and will continue over the next few years.
