What is camping like in the Rockies?

Camping is a wonderful experience, and tours stay at a range of public and private campgrounds. It should be noted that campgrounds in the Rockies share the same valleys as the train lines, and you can expect train noise, at times quite close to campgrounds. In addition, while the aim is to be in campgrounds with the option of campfires, there are some campgrounds where fires aren't permitted. In some cases, campfires might not be permitted during the park or provincial-mandated fire bans.
