My only caution is your friends experience level. Northover is a more complex traverse with some exposure. The climb into Aster can be a slog for someone new to hiking.
If you are going do the Northover, Kananaskis Pass loop, I'd do first night at Aster Lake (or Northover Tarns, but that would make for a long day). There isn't really any place to camp in between those two as random camping isn't permitted within Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, once you cross the divide into BC, you're pretty much at the Tarns. Second night would be at Three Isle Lake or Beatty Lake. You may be able to camp just across the South Kananaskis Pass border, I believe it is 2km from Beatty Lake. Next day I would hike down into the Palliser Valley and back up to North Kananaskis. You could camp on the BC side or at Turbine. I've heard that it is easier to find the trail up to North Kananaskis Pass coming from South Kananaskis Pass rather than vice versa. Spent 2 nights at Turbine and do some day hiking before you head out.
If your friend only wants to stay at developed campgrounds, that would be Aster Lake, Three Isle Lake, Beatty Lake and Turbine
