Perhaps not at the top of everyone's agenda, playing second fiddle to the major national parks a few hours drive away, Wells Gray Provincial Park is fine example of hidden treasures, spectacular countryside and some remarkable and awe inspiring natural phenomena. It's got great rivers, fantastic waterfalls (Helmecken Falls are the 4th highest in Canada), and beautiful scenery. And there's... More

I loved the waterfalls, the scenery, the limited number of visitors but the greatest pleasure was watching the salmon trying to keep upstream from the viewing area 59kms north of Clearwater. We watched with a small mix of locals and tourists. Amazing

We ended up here by happenstance, and found it very interesting and beautiful. There are 3-4 falls you can drive to (followed by short walks), there is fabulous hiking, and other sites. Lots of great wildlife though we were disappointed to not see bears while driving.

We camped at Falls Creek campground for 3 nights. We were in a double site on the river, but large enough that the other campers didn't intrude on us. The campground has pit toilets, garbage cans, and fresh water. The river, falls, and lake are beautiful. Hiking is somewhat limited--this is really a water-oriented park until you get further into...

We have been in the park after visiting Banff park where we have attended many beautiful places. And of course such must sees as for example Lake Loise. Compared to such crowded and commercial places in Wells Gray park you will see much more wildlife, less people. It is much more quite, exactly what we were looking for going to... More

If you've been to Jasper and Lake Louise, Wells Gray will be a wonderful respite from the crowds, hype and commercialism there. Wells Gray has none of that, just lovely unspoiled and undeveloped wilderness, great trails, awesome waterfalls, wildlife.....

Awesome Park to visit for a few hours, for the day, for a whole week, or more. Stunning waterfalls. Don't go up Trophy Mountain unless you have an ATV.

We loved Wells Gray Provincial Park and would recommend it to anyone interested in experiencing the great outdoors. Trophy Mountains Meadows are stunning, a twilight zone of thriving biodiversity between the tree-line and rock-strewn peaks. They are awash with a dazzling array of colourful flowers and extend as far as the eye can see. They must be seen to be... More

Very happy I got to see these series of waterfalls and lookout points. If you are nearby you must spend a day here. Do not pass this amazing park by.
