The camper was inside a tent at Rampart Creek campground on the Icefields Parkway when the attack happened around 1 a.m.
The camper’s hand and arm were injured. After reporting the incident, the camper was transferred to hospital.
Parks Canada said in a statement that no significant wildlife attractants or food were found inside the tent or the immediate vicinity.
The wolf believed to be involved was found about one kilometre south of the campground, which was closed pending an investigation.
“Incidents like these are very rare,” Parks Canada stated. “Visitor safety is of the utmost importance for Parks Canada . . . Parks Canada continues to monitor wildlife activity in the area and will take further steps if necessary, however this appears to be an isolated incident.”
