Best Canadian Rockies Camping for Families: Cottage Tents

Scene of Jasper National Park

Those who want to experience camping in the Colorado Rockies outdoors but don’t have the necessary equipment at hand, cottage tents at Whistlers campground in Jasper National Park might be just what you need.

Perfect for first-time campers and families, these basic-furnished tents are 14 feet in length and 20 feet in width, and are high enough to stand in. The roomy, clean area inside and out include a picnic table, food locker, kitchen utensil locker, fire box and parking site for one vehicle. Spacious and comfortable like Jasper National Park hotels and lodging, but with a rustic appeal still cozy and clean.

Whistlers campground, though just three kilometers to Jasper, is located in a beautiful forest area that is peaceful and a perfect setting to get the vibe of what it’s like to “rough it” in the wilderness. These convenient cottage campsites even have fire boxes to set the mood as things wind down to a tranquil evening by the fireplace.

Each unique cottage tent includes one double bed and mattress and bunk beds with mattresses, so campers need only their own sleeping, but even bed linen is provided. In addition, two fold-out lounge chairs can each be made into a single bed if needed. Two electric wall lights are in each cottage tent, plus electric baseboard heating to keep things cozy on chilly nights. Add the extras like clothes hangers and cleaning supplies, and these tents define luxury camping.

To help keep the tents clean, pets are not allowed in the tents, and smoking is not allowed. It’s suggested that campers remove their shoes before entering, so consider bringing along a pair of slippers to shuffle around inside. Campers are encouraged to bring any food they wish, however this being bear country be sure to always store, cook and eat outside the tents.

Campground staff are ready to help campers get familiar and settled in these charming cottage tents. The cost of a rental is $90 per night, and there are three different tents to choose from (one is wheelchair accessible). Reservations can be made either online or by calling 1 877 737 3783.
