About Two Jack Lakeside Campground:

It is rumored that the lake’s name was the outcome of a poker game lost by the first park superintendent, George Stewart. But the real bet on this lake is that it’s the best campground in the park for stunning views of the majestic mountain ranges. Located 15 minutes from the Town of Banff and close to Lake Minnewanka, this rustic campground is beautifully situated on the intimate shores of Two Jack Lake. The ten oTENTiks will be located in the north section of the campground clustered together and embraced by Douglas fir, white spruce and pine trees.
