Random Camping in Banff National Park?

Jump to last reply

Three friends and I are looking to go to Banff for three nights, and we would like to find a place for random camping. We are not looking to do any overnight hiking trails but just day hikes instead, but we would rather be in the wilderness rather than a crowded family campground where we have to go to bed at 10:00 so ideally we would like to be able to just camp with our cars somewhere in the bush.

I understand that there are certain areas of the park where random camping is allowed, does anyone know if these areas are easy to get to in a vehicle (pickup trucks)? If not, would it be a bad idea to just find a clearing off of a logging road somewhere closer to the cities? Thanks in advance for any help!
