    JASPER TOWNSITE


Jasper is located in Jasper National Park which is the largest of the 6 mountain parks. It was named after a trading post which was established here in the 1800's and managed by Jasper Hawse. "Jasper House" has since been shortened to Jasper.

Jasper is different than its sister town, Banff, to the south. Jasper is smaller and much less commercial. It is not uncommon to see wildlife in the town. Visitors have remarked at watching a deer manicuring the lawn outside the restaurant they were visiting. Such is the experience in Jasper!

Alberta - RATS!!
Did you know the province of Alberta is rat free and is the largest rat free area in the World. If you do see a rat ask if he/she is in politics!!


Those wishing to travel to the Rockies by train from Eastern and Central Canada arrive in Jasper and can continue through the Rockies, past Mount Robson to Vancouver on the Pacific Coast. There is no trans-continental train service to Banff, although the Rocky Mountaineer is a beautiful train journey between Banff and Vancouver, B.C.
