As someone else has mentioned, this is a self-registration campground, which you cannot reserve in advance. Get there around the middle of the day and there should be plenty of sites to choose from (it's an easy drive down from Jasper, a lot further from Banff). It doesn't have many facilities but it does have drinking water and sanitation facilities...

Great views of nearby mountains. Quite campground. Sites, although small, are secluded. Pit toilets are clean. There are no services/showers, but the stay is worth it. Nearby to the Icefield Centre, Wilcox Pass trail head, and Parker's Ridge Trail.

After stumbling across the Wilcox Creek Campground in a desperate attempt to secure some last minute camping accommodation we were lucky enough to grab the last site (due to some friendly locals that gave up a spot for us). We had a walk in spot and were able to light a fire and we fell asleep listening to the nearby...

This is a self-registration campground, which you cannot reserve. We were there around noon, and there were enough sites to choose from. You can start a beautiful hike to Wilcox Pass directly from this campground and you'll have a beautiful view on the Athabasca Glacier, which is better than the one you see from the street with the thousands of...

I liked the way the access roads to the sites are tiered so most spots get a lovely view of the mountains. This campground is not overstayed like a lot of parks in BC, so if you drive in before 11a.m. you'll likely get a spot. It is adjacent to great hiking at Wilcox Pass and less than a kilometre...

on a whim we picked this campsite because we wanted to spend time at the Columbia Icefields and we were pleasantly surprised with this little gem. the sites are small as they're situated on the side of the mountain but it's a very nice campground. the upper levels have beautifully treed spots and the lower ones have nicer views of...

Wilcox is a 'self service' non-hookup campground perfectly situation on the Icefield Parkway. Set on a tiered layer, you can set up camp in your tent or RV and enjoy the views of mountains peeking through the trees.

Cannot emphasise enough how cold these campgrounds get at night. I wore all the clothes i had brought on my trip just to get a few hours of sleep! This campsite is particularly bad as it is quite high up the mountain. Apart from that the scenery in the area is fantastic and would advise the walk situated at the...

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Jasper, and were so pleasantly surprised. What a gorgeous wilderness-like campground. Very well kept. Even the drop toilets were super clean, no smell and better than a lot of flush toilet houses we've been to. Plenty of room for our large tent. Though the night was cold, it was very...
