Golden GunnyWolf Getaway

1 site · RV, Tent40 acres · BC
Our family owns 40 acres of land in the forest set a ways back from the main road. We have a family home here as well as lots of land to explore and enjoy. There are trails into the neighbouring properties (however some are a bit wild and overgrown). We're close to many things such as the Skybridge, the Wolf Sanctuary, the beautiful rivers and waterfalls down in the Blaeberry, the lakes around the area and up the ski hill. There is lots of whitewater rafting, mountain biking and paragliding in the summer. In the winter it's an amazing backcountry skiing area or go up the Kicking Horse Mountain resort. Our site is private and secluded. Further down the road is our house where we are doing lots of building and construction so mind the mess if you do go for a wander.

Fir & Feather Mountain Treehouse

2 sites · Lodging125 acres · Golden, BC
We left the city to be closer to nature and like minded folks who help us be our best every day! We found it in Golden, BC. This unforgettable nest high above the forest floor is your opportunity to take flight. Endless trails and spectacular views give you access to nature in a whole new way. Explore on foot or bike, then spend your evening up on the deck around the tree-top propane fire pit. Cook your meals in the outdoor kitchen or on the wood burning stove in the Trapper's Tent. Eat inside or out under the sky, then curl up in the luxurious queen bed to rest up and do it again tomorrow! After two years of building, this is the first year of sharing our labour of love! Be part of our journey by sharing your thoughts with us. Give us listing suggestions and any ideas to improve the Fir and Feather experience. Help us provide some magic. *Check out our first year's reviews on 'that other site', including winter stays. Our 120 acres include trails on the Moonraker Mountain trail system which connect to well over 100 km of biking, hiking, snowshoeing, and ski trails. Canyon Creek and the Columbia River provide views and activities for everyone. The only problem is it can be difficult to pull yourself away from the simple stillness and connection you feel while just sitting at the treehouse or off grid cabin. Isn't life wonderful?

Camping near Lake Louise guide

Overview

A two-hour trip from Calgary through the Canadian Rockies with endless pit stops, Lake Louise is an essential destination for Hipcampers. It’s set in Banff National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site well known for its luxury chateau perched against the turquoise-tinged water as you enter. Lake Louise campgrounds include drive-in RV campsites, cabin retreats, and tent campsites with access to showers and flush toilets. Summer offers epic swimming spots and hiking trails, but this area transforms into a winter wonderland throughout colder months when ski chalets and cozy cabins are most popular. Don’t forget to buy a national park day pass and a tent camping permit if you’re pitching your own inside the park.

Where to go

Moraine Lake

Lesser known than Lake Louise but just as beautiful, Moraine Lake is one way to escape the crowds—especially in the middle of summer. Personal vehicles are not allowed at Moraine Lake, but shuttles run from the town of Banff between June and October. Rugged adventurers can take the 10-hour hiking trail from Lake Louise—a challenging but rewarding route.

Castle Provincial Park

Halfway between Lake Louise and Banff’s town centre, Castle Mountain stretches 11 kilometres with steep shelves and cliffs that make it a prime spot for alpine rock climbing. Campers who like to keep their feet firmly on the ground can instead take advantage of the 7.4-km Castle Mountain lookout hike with 520 metres of elevation gain and a striking view of Bow Valley. Cabin camp nearby at the Blaeberry River or go glamping in the backcountry.

Johnston Canyon

Accessible from Lake Louise via Bow Valley Parkway, Johnston Canyon is an easy road trip add-on within Banff National Park. Wind your way down the elevated catwalks attached to canyon walls as the river gushes by. Then view the large waterfall from two platforms—a lower and an upper. It’s a 5-km round-trip walk with only a 30-meter elevation gain, so this is a prime spot for kids or campers looking for an easier hike.

Yoho National Park

Boasting 28 mountain peaks, Yoho National Park is set in British Columbia but only a 30-minute drive from Lake Louise (No public shuttles run in this area, so a private car is required). Take a break at Emerald Lake Lodge, or check out the Kicking Horse Pass National Historic Site—an engineering feat dubbed the “Big Hill” (and the highest elevation of the Canadian Pacific Railway). Watch trains from one of two Spiral Tunnel viewpoints as they head straight into Mount Ogden and Cathedral Mountain.

When to go

To experience the colour-saturated water, plan to arrive at Lake Louise before the lake ices over, any time between May and late October. June, July, and August are the best months for swimming, but the glacier-fed lake is chilly all year-round. December through March bring freezing temperatures, when winter activities are in full swing. The iconic lake generally draws big crowds—find a bit more room in the off-season, which includes late March, April, and November.
