Jonas Creek Campground may rank as the worst campground in Jasper National Park. It’s not suited at all for RV’s. It’s very small and located right next to the highway. Tent campers who want to avoid RV’s may prefer this site however most of the campsites are not level and there is very little to do or see.
Due to it’s location on the Icefields Parkway Jonas Creek is logistically popular with those touring on a Bicycle. Night skies here rank #1-2 on the Bortle Scale. This is bear country, food and food related items must be stored properly
