Parks Canada accommodation
The Palisades Centre is a historic ranch located 12 km east of the Municipality of Jasper. Open year-round, the public can rent accommodation and meeting rooms at the site. The Palisades Centre is one of Jasper’s best-kept secrets.
There’s no better time to “BYOB”…that is, ‘Bring your own bike!’ If you don’t have a bike, no sweat, there are many bike shops in town that you can rent from.
Why should you bring your own bike? Well, one of Jasper’s most unique and convenient offerings include our easy connector trails from either the townsite or campgrounds. These trails are family friendly and can get you from Whistlers and Wapiti campground to town in less than fifteen minutes, or from the townsite to some of our most popular locations in under an hour!
Experience Jasper as most locals do, with the fresh mountain air at your back, getting your daily dose of exercise and Vitamin D and reducing the carbon footprint. Now that’s a win-win for all! Plus, during the summer months, finding a parking spot can be challenging. If you want to avoid the crowds, best to go bright and early in the day, or later in the afternoon. Most importantly, be attentive to wildlife. Make lots of noise (belt out your favourite tune or let your vocals echo in the Rockies!). Bring bear spray and know how to use it.
New for 2021— Daily shuttle service from Whistlers and Wapiti Campgrounds to Jasper townsite, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and, upon request, Lake Annette and Lake Edith day-use areas.
