It is that time of year that you try out front country camping or back country camping. What ever you decide, Jasper National Park is a spectacular place to start your camping experience.
What is the difference with front country camping and back country? Front country is an easier access camp sites that is mainly with services, like attendants that keep the area tidy and mostly car accessible.
Back country is when you have to hike a little distance before you arrive at designated tent pads, you can’t get recreational vehicles here. You might be supplied with Bear proof lockers or just a Bear pole where you hang your food and scented items up high so the Bears do not get access to it.
