Feel free to be guests of your camp spot and to use the yard and fire pit. We will provide some kindling/firewood for your enjoyment. There is a fenced area in our yard to allow your friendly dog off leash. (Please just pick up after your pet). The grassy park area beside our home is Town property and there is a requirement to keep pets on their leashes. Lion’s Park is a 5 minute walk up the hill from our place and is a wonderful playground for children. Please let us know what questions you might have. Most of all we want you to be happy and comfortable as our guests!
Tow vehicle maybe parked in our yard most likely next to your unit. Our alley is gravel but all roads leading up are paved. If your rv is on longer side, we recommend coming up the alley from east of our house as it is easiest to back into the space that way. We will provide a map if we think you may need it. One of pictures in on profile shows the entrance to alley in front of our house. . . Follow the alley up past our house and trailer til you come to our shop. You may park any place there (as shown where our truck is in the picture). Longer units (fifth wheels etc will be best to continue past our house on Cheviot and take the 1st alley turn to the right and turn turn right to continue following the alley until you reach the shop

We are from Hinton Alberta Canada. We live 45 minutes from the Town of Jasper in Jasper National Park. We have a grown Family (2 girls) now with Families of their own. We have been RVing for as long as we can remember (with our Parents). Recently we bought a bigger RV with plans to travel for longer periods of time. (Maybe up to 3 or 4 months). Our first trip will be summer / Fall - East across Canada to the Maritimes and maybe down to Boston and New York then travel home through the USA. We hope to spend part of one of our winters in Arizona, Palm Springs etc. We don’t feel we will be the typical snowbird. We like our home too much.

We were warmly greeted and given help in finding where to park. The spot is along a back alley but the other side is open space. We enjoyed a visit with our hosts and spent a quiet and restful evening and night. Thanks again for allowing us to stay.
