Bennett is the farthest north campground located on the edge of Lake Bennett. For people hiking south to north, this is the end of the trail and where most people catch the train. The Bennett area has interpretive signs, a historic church, and the train station.

Single destination camping permits are available through the Parks Canada reservation desk for people who ride the train in and do not hike the entire trail.
