It's been many years since I've been there, but when I went it was spelled, Banff. Unless you're talking about someplace other than the Canadian Rockies town west of Calgary.

We enjoyed our stay at Roosevelt National Park. Nice but very remote location.

When we went to Alaska last summer from NE. Ohio we also did 6 days of 350 to 450 miles. (2300 miles NE. OH. to Banff) But we took I-90 across. I thought about taking route 52 thru Minot (ND.) But entering Canada earlier would mean paying more for fuel, we wanted to stop in the Badlands NP. in SD. I pre-planned 3 Walmarts and one Cabela's till we hit a private campground in Bozeman MT. Next overnight was a Casino in Lathbridge Alberta, then Banff. Might hit strong winds in the Dakota's...So be prepared. We got a nasty side wind from the Canadian border to Calgary. Ever the border officer said Welcome to the famous Alberta winds.

Be very careful with your awning in the Lethbridge area. Lots of wind coming off the mountains. We sold our Airstream to a couple from there and when I offered to show him the awning, he told me he probably would never use it!
Just West of Lethbridge is Pincher Creek. The wind can hit 100 MPH (160 KPH) on the average of once a month!!! Be aware!
