Where to stay in Jasper National Park

Scores of hotels, lodges, and guesthouses line the western edge of Jasper's main thoroughfare, Connaught Drive, although you might struggle to find more budget-friendly options. If you're willing to pay a higher price, you can immerse yourself in nature without sacrificing luxury by staying in a resort or mountain lodge within the national park itself. Reserve your accommodations advance, as lodgings can be hard to come by at the height of the season.
