This is where you can get free trail maps. The staff person we worked with was okay but I did see others that were more helpful. If visiting Jasper, you should stop by there to see what there is to do there.

This centre is located in the middle of town and easy to get to from the main highway, worth a stop for maps and updated info before trekking out to the wilderness.

Set in a park with easy access from the town & Railway Station. An attractive stone building with good selection of information & very helpful staff.

We stopped in the Jasper Info Center because we read it was a great historical building. It was a nice stop and the staff were very informative.

A little gem! Loads of maps and plenty of enthusiastic staff to guide the traveller. Park passes can be purchased at the centre that is in the centre of Jasper. This should be the first port of call for the first time visitor to Jasper.

They really went the extra mile to make the sale! However, on my second visit the next evening, I did not find the other staff as helpful. They... More

I'm sorry, but if you advertise a walking tour, you need to do some walking. I'm sure the gentleman giving the tour meant well, but we spent 45 minutes listening to a dry history lecture on the porch and front lawn of the Friends of Jasper building without learning much of anything. We left because our feet were sore and... More

Any questions pertaining to the National Park can be answered there. Find out about road closings or trail closings or any hiking trail questions you might have. Great resource!

We've been to many TI offices in many countries that don't even speak the same language as us, and we walked out of here with little new information. Guess the person we got to help us was not happy in his job, and I wouldn't even have bothered to review it, but it popped up as a possibility to review... More
