Colorado to Jasper

Would love to re-trace our honeymoon adventure 40 years ago (Mn. to Jasper), but now from Colorado in early Sept of this year. Banff , Lake Louise, Jasper, route, etc. Would be pulling our 23SS Rockwood ROO with F150 Ecoboost. Since it has been 40 years since we have traveled to this area, we are sure things have really changed. We are interested in what others have to say. What route to take, where to camp, reservations needed, info on crossing border, must see places, etc. Appreciate any insight you may have. Thank you.


2012 23SS ROO
2014 Ford 4x4 F150 XLT 302A, screw, Ecoboost, 3.73, max tow, off road pkg., 36 gal tank, Ruby Red, tailgate step, Linex spray in, Truxedo bed cover, 30% front tint, Viper remote start, 1000 lbs WDH

No problem crossing the border, at least we didn't. Jasper is one pretty place, we plan on visiting the park in more detail next year. We did not camp inside the park

We went from FL to Banff NP last year with a day trip into Jasper NP to hike Wilcox Pass for a fantastic view of the Athabasca glacier. We camped at Waterfowl Lakes. Reservations weren't available or needed there. We also camped in Kananaskis Country at Interlakes. Even in peak summer there were sites to be had but not if you arrived on a weekend. It's all beautiful country with amazing hiking, canoeing, biking and fishing opportunities. Do some research on border crossing. Certain things are likely to be taken from you in either direction- citrus and vegetables while heading north and meat out of it's original package (indicating origin), including dogfood, while heading north or south, all depending on what contaminants/diseases might be prevalent worldwide at the time. The Canadian customs officer told us that he had to confiscate whole tomatoes but that ironically if they were cut up they were ok. I would definitely suggest camping at Apgar in Glacier NP too (arrive on a weekday and start trolling for a site opening by 9am). The going-to-the-sun road to Logan Pass is breathtaking and so is the hike to Avalanche Lake. I hope you have a great trip and enjoy a Kokanee or two for me, and perhaps a Moose Drool too.
