The first thing to expect is a complete ‘digital detox!’ Baker Creek by Basecamp does not have cellular (mobile) phone service (there is a payphone available for guests to use), and there are no televisions or telephones in any of our cabins or lodge suites. We offer our guests complimentary Wi-Fi, however, signal is received via satellite and the best in industry technology is still hindered by very slow download speeds, weather and other events. Put your devices away, and come experience connection on a different level.

Baker Creek was named after a prospector who was searching for mineral deposits in the area during the 1880’s. Whether or not he discovered gold is unknown and his subsequent adventures remain a mystery.Baker Creek Chalets originated circa `1949 as an overnight stop on the scenic Banff – Lake Louise coach road; the original TransCanada Highway and now the Bow Valley Parkway, at the confluence of the creek and the Bow River.
