One of two campgrounds on tunnel mountain road. Road access to all the sites is paved. Expensive for no services. Banff operates a fire permit system. If site has a fire pit, you have to add on a fire permit to your site fee. Ends up being quite expensive for basically limited service. Park operates fully reservable system with each site photographed. In summer months can be hard to get a site without reservation. Campground was setup many years ago and individual sites may not be well designed to work with trailers. Many sites will have the fire pit on side of trailer opposite to the trailer entrance door. Sites are between mature fir and pine trees. Trees crowd the road and some of the 90 degree turns make it tight for trailers longer than 30ft. You are in bear country and absolutely no food items are permitted on the campsite when not occupied. The bathroom and shower service building are in the center of each loop. So people tenting may have 150-200m walk to facility

Train Noise Amenities Lacking
We were there in late August and were required to boil water. We chose to stay there rather than another campground for the evening ranger talk. However there were none scheduled on the nights we were there. Finally, we were repeatedly woke up by trains sounding their horns as they went through Banff.

Village 1 is a large campground with some 30 amp, water and sewer sites. Lots of trees wich makes some sites tight for big rigs in this parralel style Campground. No wifi available.

I've been going to this campground for 15 years and since I know it so well I pick out my location spot facing two mountains. Every morning I wake up and look out my window at the gorgeous view. My spot has power and the bathroom is 100 feet away.

Huge, no-frills, toilets too far to use in the middle of the night. If you're a tent or popup camper, ask for a site closer to the potties.
