Filed Under: Bike Camp Hike

In this episode of our cross Canada Van Life Road trip we FINALLY make it to LAKE LOUISE in BANFF NATIONAL PARK. But we initially were not able to enjoy the view due to all the road blocks we faced on where we were going to spend the night. Long story short, Alberta implemented new rules around crown land camping. You are now required to purchase a public lands camp pass. In order to get this, you need something called a WiN Card which needs to be purchased at a hunting and fishing store. Well out in Banff, there is no place to found where you can pick this up. Our next course of action was to try and find a campsite in Banff that we could spend the night at. Unfortunately, everything was booked up. Next, we tried looking for a hotel, but being there in the hot season also meant that there wasnt a SINGLE hotel with availability. By this point we were getting worried about where we would be spending the night. We saw Jasper National Park has some campsites available so we changed plans again to drive up there to spend the night. BUT turns out you cannot book a campsite online at Canadian National Parks after 2pm for the same day. The only way to book is to drive in. Due to the distance, we wouldn't get to the campsite late and there was no guarantee there would be a gate attendant at that time. Completley defeated, we drove back to the Banff Lake Louise Campground with our fingers crossed that there was a cancellation, and JUST OUT LUCK, someone had just cancelled their RV campsite. 0:00 - Intro 0:27 - Leaving Johnston Canyon 0:46 - Let the troubles begin 2:18 - Welcome to Lake Louise 3:12 - The Situation #canadaroadtrip #crosscanadaroadtrip #vanlifecanada #vanlifecanadaroadtrip #alberta #banffnationalpark #lakelouise ---------- SUPPORT US!
