The fIrst live bear we saw in Canada was in Wells Gray which made it a special visit for us. The waterfalls are worth visiting

Wells Grey was not originally in our itinerary. We were driving to Kamloops, and decided that since it was only an hour each way that it would be worth the stop. It was worth every minute! We didn't have much time to explore the whole park, but we did the first 3 major waterfalls. Spahats, Dawson, and Helmcken Falls are... More

The long drive up a dirt track to the Flower Meadow on Trophy Mountain was really a highlight...improved by a bear wandering across the road in front of us on the way down!

Wells Gray was the first stop on a three-week camping trip through the Rockies - what an amazing start! We camped at Thompson River for a night and then two nights at Falls Creek (Clearwater was fully-booked unfortunately). We spent a day canoeing on Clearwater lake, including stopping at a few of the beaches and hiking up eagle's point through... More

We saw 12 beautiful waterfalls, wildlife such as deer, bears, toads, foxes, jumping salmon, bald eagles, pine martens and more. We hiked dozens of kilometres to breathtaking viewpoints, lakes, abandoned homesteads and mineral springs, and paddled to quiet beaches, and we came home every night to a clean and family-friendly campground. What's not to like in Wells Gray? Ten days... More

Less known than nearby Jasper and Banff, this beautiful park gets overlooked by many. Big Mistake!!! Make sure you visit Wells Gray if you are in the area. Ou host (Bob) at Wyndswept B&B (reviewed by me separately) recommended the park and since all his tips turned out to be top notch, we took this one as well. Start at... More

We stayed in Weels Gray Provincial Park for three nights and were very pleased we did. We would recommend everything we did! Stay at Clearwater Springs Ranch, drive and mini hikes to view the various waterfalls and the Green Mountain tower (look out point), horse riding from the stables at Helckemen Falls Lodge, day boat trip to Rainbow falls with...

If you camp out in Wells Gray, you only and truly get the feeling of getting into the wild. Stay two nights or more to disconnect completely from everyday life.

When we visited the park in June, it was very uncrowded, so sometimes you felt being alone in a beautiful environment. Some of the falls are amazing, and offered very good photo opportunities. The hiking paths are well maintained. Don't forget: free admission! Best value you'll ever get...

Enjoyed a five day hut to hut hike in this amazing park. Incredible wild flowers, clean water, stunning vistas. A little known gem in BC.
