If your out this way going to Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump there is a nice full hook up campground in Claresholm not to far north. Claresholm Centennial Park Campground.

We had thought about going down 95 at Golden, just west of Banff. Unless that is not advisable? if that were the case, we wouldn't get as far east as Calgary. We wanted to head South at Golden because that directly to the west side of Glacier NP...

BTW.
Claybanks has few trees to back into and the Home Hardware is about three blocks away if you find you need a laundry basket or pressure reduction valve. Liquor store, large grocery and a latte are also about three blocks.

Thanks everyone for the input!! I think we will stay at Claybanks. We have also decided to spend an extra day in Canada to enjoy the Banff area. If there is a recommendation in that area Provincial Park or private, we'd also be grateful as well!

Here is another option you may wish to consider. A few miles north of Merrit on Highway 5A is the historic Quilchena Hotel owned by the Douglas Lake Ranch (largest ranch in Canada). Part of their operation is a nearby golf course and RV park with 25 fully serviced units. Highway 5A is the old highway from Meritt to Kamloops and is a very scenic alternative to Highway 5 (the Coquihalla).
Here is a link that includes information on the RV park. I have not stayed there but the old hotel is lovely, in fact it was where my daughter was married. DOUGLAS LAKE RANCH | CAMPING
