I just got back from my annual camping trip with my parents. Our main destination this year was Jasper National Park, but on the way we camped at Elk Island National Park for a night. Elk Island is about an hour from Edmonton and is a less busy park than Banff and Jasper. After supper we went for a walk along the shores of Astotin Lake, one of the prettiest lakes I’ve seen. We had a good experience in this area – a problem with the brake lights on the camper meant we ended up in the small town of Lamont, Alberta to try to get it fixed before we got back on the busy Yellowhead Highway to Jasper. Dad asked for some advice on where to go to get it fixed at the campground office so we headed for Lamont at 8am the next day. The mechanic who ended up fixing it was excellent and his customer service was awesome. We were back on the road by 11:30am.
