Snaring River campsite is the nicest site around the town of Jasper.
But here is a list

Hey Ontariogirl. I live in Banff and have many great ideas for you. what type of camping are you planing to do? Backcountry or just townsite car type camping? Are you going to do some hiking or are you just passing through? Let me know and I will fill you in on some stuff.

I've always been a fan of the Lower Lake Campground walk-in sites in Kananaskis. Though I haven't camped there in a few years.

Ypu could also try the IH hostel network. No wet bedrolls, but some really great locations. Try Beauty Creek down by the Icefields, or Maligne Canyon near Jasper.
