Camping is available between mid-May and mid-October in Yoho. During peak season there are over 150 campsites spread over four campgrounds. Each campground offers a variety of services. Demand is heaviest on long weekends and on all weekends in July and August. If you plan on finding a first-come, first-serve campsite, arrive early as they will fill-up. Kicking Horse and Monarch Campgrounds now accept site-specific reservations for certain sites.
