Freezing Temperatures Delay Kicking Horse Campground Opening

There will be no long weekend camping at Kicking Horse Campground in Yoho National Park (British Columbia) due to frigid conditions.

On Wednesday, Yoho National Park announced in a tweet that the popular campground would remain closed until at least May 26 due to “lingering snowpack” hindering Parks Canada from providing water to the campground’s facilities.

Camping fees will be automatically refunded.

Kicking Horse Campground is located along the Trans-Canada Highway, between the Alberta-British Columbia and the town of Field, near the entrance to the road to Takakkaw Falls.

Yoho National Park is situated on the western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Visitors are fond of the vertical rock walls, waterfalls, and peaks found in the park.
