Parks Canada operates three vehicle-accessible campgrounds in Waterton Lakes National Park: Townsite Campground, Crandell Mountain Campground and Belly River Campground.

Townsite Campground

Townsite Campground is using the Parks Canada Reservation Service.

Reserve by phone:

Call 1-877-RESERVE (1-877-737-3783). Available from 8 am to 6 pm local park time.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this service, please call (403) 859-5133 or send us an email.

Crandell Mountain and Belly River campgrounds

Crandell Mountain Campground is closed due to extensive infrastructure damage from the Kenow Wildfire.

Campsites at Crandell Mountain and Belly River campgrounds are available only on a first-come, first-served basis.

We do not take reservations for these campgrounds. During peak season (July and August), campgrounds tend to fill quickly and are usually full for the night by early afternoon.

Reservations can also be made for the Belly River group camp. This camping area is only for groups of 25 or more. Please call (403) 859-2224.

Wilderness camping

Contact the park to make reservations for wilderness (backcountry) campsites.
