I am planning 10 nights in the Canadian rockies as part of a 15 night roadtrip this July. We will have a dog with us, and are tent camping, so that pretty much limits us to accepting we won't be using any restaurants (since the dog is not allowed and we have no place to leave her)- as such, I don't think I need any town site services.
I am planning the most days in LL as most of what we want to do is hiking, and it looks like a good base to spend one of those day in Yoho National Park.
But I've also heard about the train noise. We are usually sound sleepers, but over 5 nights- will it just be too much? Is it worth the inconvenience to not have to drive to the LL area almost every day? (My understanding is that is where most of the tourist type hikes are- that there will be less iconic hikes in the southern area near Two Jack Lake, for instance).
I appreciate your advice. I'm trying to get this all sorted out before campsite reservations open (next week, I think).
