WHISTLER'S CAMPGROUND, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA: GPS 52.8476° N, 118.0800° W

All I can think about regarding this campsite is how incredible small it was and how hard it was to get into! We had planned on going to the Snaring River Overflow (which we did later when it opened), but couldn't because it wasn't open. So we scrambled and Whistler told us they'd work us in, which is awesome. However, we had to back into a site that was only as long as our trailer (32 feet) with no room on either side of the trailer (well, maybe 2 feet? just enough for our slide), and no room to park our truck. We actually had to park our truck near the showers, which was a 20 minute walk away. I do feel lucky that we had somewhere to go, and I'm very proud of us for wiggling into that site (and then out of it), but man o man was it tough. We only had to stay 2 nights before the Overflow opened, which was far better.

In addition to the tiny site (and small sites overall with minimal privacy), the campground was massive and took forever to get through. Of course, we were at the far end. Also, the roads within the loops of the campground were really narrow, so navigating them with the overgrown trees was really tough.

The bathroom had running water and was adequate. There were showers (as I mentioned, about 20 minutes away), but I didn't go in them or use them, so I don't know the quality.

As I recall, we had enough cellular to stream on AT&T and weak cellular on Verizon and T-Mobile, but it was a month ago, so I can't remember for certain.
