Camping

In 2019, Parks Canada is operating two vehicle-accessible campgrounds in Waterton Lakes National Park: Townsite Campground (reservable) and Belly River Campground (non-reservable / available on a first-come, first-served basis).

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

Backcountry camping

Backcountry camping is a great way to experience the wilderness of Waterton Lakes National Park. There are nine wilderness campgrounds in the park.

Some backcountry campgrounds are closed as a result of the Kenow Wildfire. Check here for a listing.

Group camping

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

Winter camping

The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) operate a backcountry hut in Waterton Lakes National Park (Cameron Lake Cabin), providing overnight accommodation in the winter.
