Frequently asked questions


We have 34 sites that have electrical and water hookups. None of our sites have a sewer connection. We have a central dump station available for all camping guests at no charge.

The campground is open from mid-May to mid-October. All trailers must be removed from the campground during the off-season.


As our campsites are seasonal, no permanent structures are permitted.

If you are interested in renting a site for a longer duration during the mid-May to mid-October season, the rates will be discounted as follows: 1st month: 10% off daily rate, 2nd month: 20%, 3rd month: 30%, 4th month: 40%, 5th month: 50% and 6th month: 60% off daily rate.

Site 47 is a pull-through site.


We are located on a 160-acre woodland property bordering on the back of Banff National Park backcountry. This is a new, spacious campground built in 2020. Some mature trees exist throughout the campground and there is a multi-year planting plan to bring natural foliage and additional trees to the area.


Our online campsite availability begins June 3, 2021. Due to weather uncertainty in the Rocky Mountain foothills in May, we have decided to block online bookings until weather forecasts are more predictable. Please check back later.


Campsite reservations can only be changed or canceled by contacting Schott’s Lake directly via phone or email. There is a $10 administration fee for all changes or cancellations.


Online booking fees are $5/reservation. Telephone/email booking fees are $10/reservation. These fees are non-refundable. Payment in full is required at the time of booking (including the reservation booking fee) and is charged to the guest’s credit card.


Our future plans are to have a wagon wheel style group camping area with a central cook house surrounded by campsites. Currently, we reserve campsites 5-24 for group events that are booked at Schott’s Lake.


In 2020 we renovated the Main Lodge and added 3 shower rooms in the lower level. They can be used by any guests staying at Schott’s Lake. There is a coin-operated fee for use.

Yes you can! However, it must be set up on the gravel pad in the site.
