Yoho Campsites and ACC Hut

Stanley Mitchell ACC Hut

The Stanley Mitchell Hut is owned by the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC), and is located in the backcountry of the Yoho Valley. Access to the hut is through a 3-5 hour hike that begins at the Takakkaw Falls parking lot. During the summer the hut sleeps 26. Night rates are $35 for non-members of the ACC, with a $5 rate increase during seasonal peaks. If you’re looking for a taste of what it is like to be a true outdoorsman and are looking to get away from the crowds, then the Stanley Mitchell Hut is the perfect escape for you.

Four main camping sites are located near the town of Field. The closest two are the Kicking Horse Campground and the Monarch Campground. The other two are a little futher away in the Takakkaw Falls area. The first one is the Tak Falls campsite itself, which is located just next to the Takakkaw Falls Parking Lot within view of the falls. The other is the Laughing Falls campsite. This is a backcountry campsite, so you will need to remember to pick up a backcountry camping pass. It is about a 2 hour hike in to the campsite, which is located near beautiful Laughing Falls.
