The hike into camp starts at the Mt. Shark parking lot and follows the trails into Banff National Park. Although long at 17 km, it is an easy trail to hike. Throughout the week, there are many areas to explore including Magog Lake at Mount Assiniboine, Marvel Lake, Wonder Pass, Og Lake, Allenby Pass, and much more. The photos below are scenes from our visit in 2008 by our photo contest participants.

Camp life provides an interesting contrast to the peacefulness of the trail. Meal times in the dining tent are happy, noisy affairs. The camaraderie continues around the evening campfire where a description of hikes planned for the following day are given. It is also a time for singing, recounting of the day's events and telling of tall tales.
