    We were here for 4 nights in July. We were in the park to do several hikes and found this location to be a good spot to access the different areas of the park. We were tenting in Loop A and had a spot that backed onto the Athabasca River. It was beautiful to wake up to every morning. The...

    We've been there in July 2016. Beautiful camp sites in the forest and along the river. Well run campground, great staff, clean washrooms and public area. There is a lot of wild life to see in the area. Downside is there are no showers but the rest of the campgrounds in the area have so it's not big of a...

    Flush toilets and running water in a forest!! Spacious sites and pay for a fire permit and unlimited wood. Wish there was more trees surrounding each site for more privacy as the sites are very open. Highly recommended for a family camping trip.

    The place is beautiful (as all Rocky mountains area). Hookups only for electricity, you have to connect water and dump in a central place. It is quiet far from Jasper, so if you plan to go out, it may take some time. No showers.

    We wanted a campground south of Jasper and this worked perfectly. You do need to make reservations ahead of time. Having never been to this campground we made a guess as to which site would be best. Boy did we luck out! Are campsite was flat, located along the river and it was huge. The size helped to make us...

    We make a point of camping in Jasper at least one time each summer and we love staying at Wabasso. It is a bit of a trek on the old highway to haul your trailer, but the sites are nice, the bathrooms are clean, and they have a small playground for the kids and group activities (ie. campfire sing-a-longs). It...

    Located just outside of Jasper townsite and close to SO many outdoor sightseeing spots, this clean, away-from-traffic-noise site was great. Some sites are river-view, there's a separate area for tenters away from RV noise, special RV areas, and several reservable sites. Firewood included. Drinkable taps on site. And flush toilets on site? WOO HOO! Couldn't ask for more.

    We went on a camping trip with family - we had 3 campsites for 3 nites. Price was very reasonable, campsites were clean and washrooms were spotless with hot water! Nice trails to walk on and overall had a great time! Booked through Parks Canada Reservation service and checking in was seamless!

    We stayed here for two nights with our two small children. We absolutely loved Jasper! If you've never been to Jasper, the campsites are not spectacular, they're just a place to lay your head at night - a base camp to explore this amazing park. We had a bad experience with the park staff. When we arrived they told us...

    Our family camped here for two nights in July. The online booking was easy, check-in was very easy, and the campsite was clean and well-maintained. Staff were helpful in directing us to some of the interesting things to see in the local area, such as Edith Cavell (mountain) and the Athabasca falls. Would definitely stay here again.

    Official Description (provided by the hotel)
    Best suited for tenting, and motorhomes and trailers under 27 feetWith pristine views, rushing river water and electrical sites for small RVs, Wabasso lets you get away from it all, without getting rid of it all, so bring your rice cooker and your coffee maker! This quiet campground is tucked away on the 93A, a secondary highway offering excellent road biking opportunities, particularly in the fall. This is a good staging area for overnight treks into the backcountry and shorter day trips to Moab Lake and Athabasca falls. Wabasso features heated bathrooms with lights, flush toilets, and hot and cold running water. ... more   less
