Location: West side of the Icefields Parkway 88kms north of Lake Louise and 28kms south of the Columbia Icefields. Banff National Park.

Description: Rampart Creek campground contains 50 campsites. Amenities include sheltered camp kitchens with wood burning cook stoves, garbage containers, recycling bins, potable water, dry toilets, picnic tables and fire pits. Fire wood is available when purchasing a fire permit. The campground consists of 4 loops including a walk in tent section. Two of the loops contain sharp turns edged with large trees showing evidence of trailer scrapes. If your RV is over 8ms (25') it may be wise to walk the loops first. Several of the campsites back onto the north Saskatchewan river with open views towards the valley. The cliffs on the east face of Mount Wilson located across the highway contain some of the best ice climbs found in the world. In the winter months all the small water falls you see on the cliff face freeze into irresistible play grounds for ice climbers. The famous Weeping Wall, Polar Circus and Ice nine waterfalls are located within a few kilometers of here. The Weeping Wall is best viewed in the winter months as the entire cliff face freezes over. During winter campground closure climbers can stay at Rampart Creek hostel located across the highway. Night skies here rank # 1 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for campfround fees, opening and closing dates.

Near Here: Local campgrounds include Icefields Centre Parking Lot, Columbia Icefields Tents Only, Wilcox Creek and Jonas Creek. There are several hikes located in this area. Wilcox Pass, Parker Ridge, Hilda Ridge, Hilda Glacier, Boundary Lake, Nigel Pass, Weeping Wall, Mount Athabasca Alpine Climb, Mount Athabasca North Glacier, Castleguard Mountain Alpine Climb and the Saskatchewan Glacier. This is bear country, food and food related items must be stored properly.
