Best campsites for families in Banff
So I camp with my family all the time here in BC, but we want to take advantage of the free pass this year to the national parks, and we were thinking of making a trip to Banff. I'm just trying to narrow things down for myself, but since I've never camped there, and there are many different sites, I just thought I'd get a bit of feedback. We're a family of four - me, my wife, my 4 year old and a 3 month old. The places we normally like to camp in BC, are places like Alice Lake, Golden Ears, Manning Park, etc. That said, we don't need to have comforts like a playground or showers, but it does have to have at least pit toilets, easy access to hiking, ideally fishing if its hear a lake - just lots of stuff to do with a young family.
On initial glance, Two Jack Lakeside looks ideal and similar to what we normally do, but I know sites there are pretty limited. Another option looks like Tunnel Mountain Village, but there are a couple campgrounds there and they're pretty big so I'm a bit confused with where I should be focusing. Just trying to mostly avoid a site where it's mostly a parking lot for trailers, you know? We just have a family sized tent and a Prius, so we don't need electricity. Just your typical car camping experience. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
