Travelers need to know two

RV series two

Camp­ing, park­ing…

Trav­el­ing in the off sea­son, is not the best time to trav­el if you like to take in all the attrac­tions and activ­i­ties. Many of the ser­vices were closed even the tourist infor­ma­tion out­lets! Lucky for you, the Jasper info cen­tre does stay open year round.

Jasper is a nation­al park and it is no dif­fer­ent though the sea­sons, camp­grounds close, but there is one site (Wapi­ti win­ter) open year round, almost.  For up to date infor­ma­tion about those off sea­son camp­ing. Here is the web link: http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/ab/jasper/activ/ete-summer/camping/info-camping.aspx

Here is the sad news, when in Jasper, all the RV sites are fee based, unless you don’t mind those rest areas along the high­way, there are time lim­its on how long you can rest for. If it is just for a cou­ple of hours, nobody in their right mind will give you a has­sle on tak­ing a rest and park. It is def­i­nite­ly safer for you and me both.

When in town, there are sev­er­al large park­ing lots that  can accom­mo­date larg­er motorhomes and you can park all day FREE and enjoy the town activ­i­ties, restau­rants and shops. Some trail­heads do not accom­mo­date RV’s like the Edith Cavell road, if you are over 7 meters (23feet), there is a park­ing lot for those large RVs pri­or to the 14km (8.6miles) road to Edith Cavell.
