Welcome to

HI Rampart Creek

Wilderness Hostel

We're currently closed until December 17. In the meantime, we'll be open for groups and rent-a-hostel!

HI Rampart Creek Wilderness Hostel

Highway 93 N
Banff National Park, Alberta
T1L 1B3

About half way between Banff and Jasper, HI Rampart Creek is a hiker's and climber's paradise with trails just out the door and bolted sport-climbing routes a five-minute walk away. After all that exertion, sit back in the hostel's wood-burning sauna, breaking only to take a dip in the nearby glacier-fed creek.

Highlights
  • The Weeping Wall, bolted climbing routes & trails nearby
  • Relax in the sauna or by the fire
  • Off-the-grid living: no electricity & no running water

Groups Information

What I love about Rampart Creek is the scenery. In my opinion, it is the most beautiful of the hostels and your jaw will drop if you step outside the hostel on a sunny day to look around you at the surrounding mountains. 

Tanya Koob, Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies

Fantastic hostel experience steps from the highway. Dont miss the sauna, bonfire, and a chat with the entertaining caretaker!

Dustin McLachlan

We stayed for one night whilst cycling the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise. We didn't expect many facilities, but what there was surpassed our expectations.
