I was a little sceptical based on some of the previous reviews but there was such a disparity between the opinions offered, I thought I'd just go and see for myself. The two young ladies at the front desk were warm and friendly and checked us in very efficiently. Our camp site was a nice big drive through (we have... More

This resort is in the middle of the beautiful Canadian Rockies and is truly an interesting experience. It is what you want to make it and is very reasonable compared to hotel and motel prices in the rest of the park. The motel is older but our room was certainly well maintained and very clean. Cell phones don't work here,... More

Spent two evenings here as it provided 42 km access to the national parks to the west. Prominent features include concrete block room walls, harvest gold bathroom fixtures and velveteen blankets on two double beds supported by 2x4's with four TV stations on 20" screen to enrich entertainment experience. Drought years likely contributed to all the dead pruned trees lining... More

The website looked great but we were sorely disappointed upon arrival. The lots weren't dirty but they weren't clean feeling either. There was low water pressure and the site hookups were outdated and uneven. The park was filled with outdated and what seemed to be unsafe playground equipment, but our kids loved being on the old-school stuff. The wifi didn't... More

We just had a reunion with over ninety family members present at this resort and I was so impressed with the staff and their going the second mile to accommodate our various needs. With that many people and their various lifestyles and tastes it is hard to make everyone happy, but David Thompson Resort did it. The location is great... More

We booked this camground early in December 2013, honestly looking for a venue to host a family reunion in 2014 a little closer to home. Nearly everything that we could find locally was not available in the time frame we needed, or on site services would not fit the bill for people traveling from the U.S. and Canada. I have... More

I had been at this resort previously and had a wonderful experience. Most recently though, I had made a reservation which was not on record and even when I presented several emails showing the communication, the lady (who claimed to be management) still would not take responsibility for the mix up or offer anything in the way of other options....

We booked a campsite here for the long weekend because everything else was booked up. Wonderful location on Lake Abraham but that was about all it had going for it. The campsites are incredibly cramped, absolutely no privacy. They have a bar/restaurant in the middle of the campground that had a party on the Saturday night. They were singing karaoke... More

Nice spot for camping will come back with our kids and trailer, the only thing I can suggest is if your restaurant is open till 10 then when guests arrive late and would like to order something they should still be able to order anything on the menu. We work in the restaurant service industry too and would never tell... More

My husband and I had reserved a camping spot for two nights 16 days in advance as we were heading for the weekend and spending the day Saturday in Jasper Park. About a week prior to our reservation, the forest fires in the area made it questionable if we were able to even stay there or get in the park.... More
