We stayed here 4 nights in late august of 2017 on site 8. As already posted, the sites are side by side, 2 sites in an opening. And that is not evident when looking at a map of the campground. The map leads you to think that even numbers are on one loop. and odd numbers are on another loop. Not the case. We were expecting to be next to site 6 but were next to site 7. Not a bad thing. Just a surprise. There was a fire ban when we stayed there.
The campground is easy to find with easy access off Canada 1. The sites are gravel and mostly level. The hookups are on the opposite side, unless you turn your camper around. Then your door opens toward your neighbor. The campground was full but still very quiet. There was wifi at the visitors center in town. Lots to see in the area. There is a gravel bike path around the campground that also goes into town.
The CN mainline runs next to the campground. Probably 10 trains a day, each direction. If being awakened several times a night doesn't sound like fun, try to get as far away from the entrance as possible. It may be quieter. If you are a train buff, a few miles away is Kicking horse pass with 2 spiral tunnels.
Any sightseeing needs to be started early. The crowds were unbelievable.

We had no cell service due to no contract outside US.

If you want to stay here in high season (June thru Sept) you MUST have a reservation which needs to be done on-line via Parks Canada. However, we were here in mid-Oct and it was almost vacant. In the summer months I believe it would be not so peaceful. This is a very touristy area and would be quite busy and, I imagine, noisy during the high season.
Electrical hook-ups only. Potable water is available from a small room in the bathhouse and you can pull your trailer alongside and hook your hose directly to the tap. Dump station on site as well.
Site parking is in groups of 2 so you are parked close to your neighbour on the gravel; however, on your site there is a decent spot for picnicking, fires (but you need to pay extra in order to have a fire). Often in the summer months there is a ban on fires due to the high risk of wildfires.
Washrooms were decently clean, showers were hot (but why do so many parks insist on those terrible, harsh, wide-spraying showerheads that make you feel as though you are being pin-pricked to death??!?!??!).
There is a train track running very close to the campground so if that would annoy you, stay away.
No cell service of any kind up here if that is important to you.
All in all, a decent spot. Beautiful view of the Rockies and a short drive up to see the awesome Lake Louise is well worth a trip. And hey, you can't beat the beauty of Banff National Park....
