That's about par. Kananaskis permits are $12 per night per adult (16 years+). There is no per tent pad fee. If you reserve ahead (rather than get your permit at the visitor center) there is an additional $12 reservation fee. However you are only required to camp in a campsite within the Provincial Parks (Peter Lougheed, Bow Valley, Sheep River, and Spray Lakes). In the wildland parks, you can random camp in most locations without a permit, you just need to be 1km away from a road, campground, provincial park, or provincial recreation area camp.
