      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Question: Mount Robson/Berg Lake Camping

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at climbing Mount Robson's Kain Face this summer and I'm looking into permits and camping on the approach. It looks like they require reservations for any camping along the Berg Lake Trail. That's not necessarily a bad thing for heading in but I would like some flexibility for when we come back out, based on weather, etc. Anyone have any recommendations for a good way to handle that?

You may consider Adolphus Lake Camp which is part of Jasper National Park..it's about 5km(?) from Berg Lake main camp area if I recall correctly. Being on the far end of Jasper National Park also, you might be able to simply crash there easily without disturbance. 6 yeas ago we hiked the North Boundary Trail that starts at Mt. Robson/Berg Lake TH and goes north and winds a circuitous route around the outer margins of Jasper National Park..

 

Or frankly if you just walked North along the NBT a bit into Alberta I am sure you could find a completely serviceable spot to bed down sans permit/registration/etc for a night's sleep before the exit. though I do myself like having things lined up..

I just wouldn't bother with reservations. There are plenty of places to bivi that aren't on the trail, and you always have the option of descending the south face to the hut.

 

The National Park is going to extract a healthy fee for potentially staying in the park and there will be no one checking permits.
