Since this campground is first come first serve we arrived around noon on the Friday of the labour day long weekend to ensure we got a spot. They have carts to help you bring your stuff from your car to the campground, so you don't have to carry everything in from the parking lot.

There were lots of sites left- probably due to the rainy weekend forecast. Approximately half the sites have a firepit and the other half don't. There is a map beside where you register showing this. All the sites are quite private. I think the campsite was approx. $18 per night and around $8 per night for a fire permit. It was very quiet except for the noise of Takakkaw Falls, which was wonderful.

There is a kitchen shelter with a wood stove that you can use if you are cold or wet. There's also a small building where you could store food or other items, but there are lots of food lockers too. There is a sink that you could use for washing dishes. Much to my surprise, the pit toilets didn't smell at all- why can't they all be like that?

There are some great hikes starting from the campground and we plan on returning next summer to do more of them.

A last minute change in our travel itinerary due to a tip from the owner of Park Distillery in Banff and we ended up here. So glad we did! An easy walk (and easier with use of the cart) lead us to many camp sites (some with fire pits and some without) where you can hear the Takkakaw Falls waterfall. Our site even allowed a view of it! Additionally, there is an easy hike to many other Falls from the campsite. There are bear lockers and a storage shed on site. Facilities were clean.

We love this campground and go at least once a year. It is for tents only and is first come first serve so get here earlier in the day and particularly before a weekend as it is a popular spot. You need to walk in 500 meters, but there are wheelbarrows around to help you load in your gear. It can get cold at night (even snow) so dress appropriately. The hiking trails are great from here particularly Twin Falls and the Ice Line trail, but be careful with the Ice Line trail early in the summer as it can still be snow covered and avalanches are at high risk then so check the signs prior to heading out.

I love staying at this campsite. The drive up from the highway is scenic, and the falls are stunning. Many campsites have a perfect view of the falls. The campground is small and basic, well maintained, and the bathrooms and water area are clean. This is one of my favorite campgrounds!

There are 3 campgrounds here. Monarch is more open, very basic, but not so deep in the mountains so it is warmer. Whiskey Jack has more amenities and you need to lineup for a spot. Be there by 11:00. The furthest one is a walk in tenting only. Again basic but quiet There is a parking lot and small wagons to use. This location has a series of amazing hikes of various lengths, at least 4 great waterfalls, and trips for all skill levels. Personal favorite in the Rockies.

We loved this site! We tent camped here (only tents allowed) for 1 night. You have to park in the waterfall car park and walk the 400m in. There are trolleys to help though. The pitches are all great and quite private. Ours had a great view of the falls (from a distance of about 500m) and the noise of the falls was great too. The facilities are basic. There is a pit toilet and a sink with solar hot water. Plenty of wood and fire pits. There are plenty of bear boxes too. We had a really great time here and would recommend it!

We love this campground at Takkakaw Falls. You have to drive or bike up the road - where you can spot bear in the avalanche slopes at dawn and dusk.
The campground is several hundred meters from the parking lot which makes it seem isolated but you're just minutes from your car. There are carts if you don't want to backpack your gear into the site. Lately the campground has modernized with scent-free composting toilets. There is a fee for firewood. There's also a cook shelter if it's raining. Remember to buy all your food and supplies before you head up the road as there are no stores up there.
Some of the sites have a full view of Takkakaw Falls and falling asleep to the wshh wshhh of the water falling is lovely. You can hike up the Yoho Valley for an easy half day or head up to Iceline for spectacular views.

We somehow managed to get a fantastic spot to camp! It was busy but people come and go everyday at all times of the day. The scenery and cleanliness was worth the trip but a few too many people for me.

We spent 3 lovely nights at this campground and loved every minute of it. It is a perfect mix of backcountry quiet with front country amenities. Our campsite even had a view of the waterfall. Come around 9-10 to get a campsite otherwise you might not get a spot.
