Description

Backcountry camping is a great way to experience the wilderness of Waterton Lakes National Park. A backcountry use permit is required for overnight stays in the backcountry. Permits are available from the Waterton Lakes National Park visitor centre. There is a nightly fee for each adult camper. There is no charge for children aged 16 and under. Reservations are available for backcountry campsites. A non-refundable reservation fee is charged. Reservations for backcountry trips may be made up to 90 days in advance. Call the visitor centre at (403) 859-5133. Reservations must be paid for at the time of booking by credit card (MasterCard, American Express or VISA). Before calling, please have the following information: dates of trip campgrounds preferred number of adults and children in party credit card information contact address and phone number model and licence plate of vehicle Permits must be picked up at the visitor centre no sooner than 24 hours in advance of the start date of the trip. Wilderness camping is permitted at designated campgrounds only. Tents must be placed on tent pads provided at each site. Tent pads measure 2.7 m x 2.7 m (9 ft. x 9 ft.). There is a limit of one tent per tent pad. Most sites have four tent pads. The party size can be between 1 and 6 people but the maximum persons per campsite is 9 to 12, depending on the number of tent pads at the site. Gas stoves are required for cooking at backcountry campsites, but certain sites allow fires in designated fire pits. If you do choose to have a fire, it should be kept small and extinguished completely. Gather only small pieces of dead and down wood. All fires may be prohibited when the fire hazard is extreme. Water sources are available at each campground. Water should be treated or boiled before use. Food must be cooked and consumed at the designated cooking area away from the tent pads. Don't eat or store food near your tent as this could attract wildlife.
