Helmcken Falls is an incredible sight and worth the drive in to see. Easy access and great viewing area (not a hike in as we expected) Dawson Falls was also worth the short walk in a beautiful setting. We stayed at Pyramid Provincial campground. A clean, quiet site just off the Myrtle River. The mosquitos were unrelenting and citronella was... More

Wells Gray Provincial Park was the first of many Provincial and National Parks we visited on our trip around BC and Alberta. We enjoyed the park very much. Bring time because there's so much to see and do! There are nice hikes and quite a number of really nice waterfalls. If you go in summer don't forget to bring mosquito... More

Any outdoor enthusiast would love a day out exploring Wells Gray. So much to see it is hard to fit it all into one day. Our favourite hikes are Moul Falls and Helmcken Falls. Be sure to run behind the fall at Moul Falls, great fun. Also good view points of Dawson Falls and Helmcken from view points if you... More

We visited Wells Grey Park on route from Whistler to Jasper to break up the journey after a nights stay at Little Fort. If you are short on time like us and doing a lot of km's without many days rest in between my advice would be to see the amazing Spahats falls only which is 10.3km from Clearwater each... More

We only had time for a brief wiser to this very large provincial park. There is a gas station and places to buy food at the entrance.

Thoroughly enjoyed all the waterfalls and the walks in the area. Some waterfalls could be reached within a short walk others took longer. Other longer hikes were available.

This park suits the casual and serious visitor alike. First, stop at the information centre; the staff are fantastic, and will describe the highlights, whether your visit is short or long - ours was a 1 day visit. Stunning waterfalls, good ecology, and a real feel that the park management care about what they are doing. Some things can be... More
