very helpful staff, seemed to know the best places to walk and gave good advise on view points and general things to do apart from the young lady who said there were no black bears in the area and we were lucky enough to come across one feeding in the woods on our way to lake patricia, great experiance

We went twice - got one person that was very helpful. The next time another employee (volunteer?) just gave us bare minimum instructions - try someone else if at first you aren't pleased

After two weeks in Canada of what we English struggle with a little, as excessive friendliness, I was a little taken aback with the rather curt, unfriendly customer manner of the French/English speaking lady who served us here- however we got the maps and information we needed.

We stopped here for maps and advice about hiking. The staff were well informed and helpful, giving advice about which trails to take, and where bears had been sighted.

It is good to stop here to get up to date trail information and to stop to tell us if you do spot a bear on a trail! We also have a handy book where people have wrote down where they have spotted wildlife so you know where the most recent sightings have been. We are always glad to help. More

This information center was much better than the one in Banff. It also has a really nice gift shop. There are brochures and maps of the area, this is a great place to stop. Also the building is beautiful.

Helped us out with our accomodation booking, staff really good. In a lovely old building in middle of town.

TourismJasper, Travel Counsellor at Jasper Information Centre, responded to this review

We are glad that we could help you find an accommodation. It's always good to book in advance when coming to Jasper, because it does get very busy but if you don't we can help find something. We also have a great list of "Approved Accommodations" in the information center if that is something you would be looking for. Thank... More

Finally found a map for hiking trails in the park. Why was it so hard to find this?! Looks like trail maps would be more readily available. Unfortunately, this information center did not have trail maps for the other parks.

We are glad that you got a trail map! We encourage people to go to the information center for the area to get trail maps. That way not only can you get some great suggestions but you can informed about any current trail closures and warnings. More
