The only reason this is four rather than a five is because it's hard to get to. A very long drive from anywhere (even the nearest town). Makes for an amazing weekend or week-long trip. Everything abotu this park feels like it's out of a fairy tale.

Splendid waterfalls, canyons and river with excellent salmon viewing point at Bailey's Chute in September). The dirt road from the Helmcken Falls and Clearwater Lake can be messy after rain.

We camped 2 nights at Clearwater campground and enjoyed hikes and solitude and beautiful waterfalls. I love this place. Campground is quiet and we had a spot right next to the river as it flows from the lake .... Amazing,

The park is way more accessible than we thought. The drives were short and the sites an easy walk. The two main falls are worthwhile

Loved this park, not crowded, beautiful hikes, incredible waterfalls. We were lucky to see the "flying" salmons. Magical. Great Park to stop on the way between Vancouver and the Rockies.

This year we family members have been using the Wells Gray Rocks booklet - available at the Information Center to locate the geo-cash clues towards 'finding the treasure' - So far we have located many of the clues. However, I think the 'real treasure' is the wonderful time we are having as small groups of family and friends, enjoying the... More

Not as many tourists as in Banff/Jasper, but certainly a spectacular park! Most is accessible only by foot/kajak, however some of the most spectacular waterfalls can be easily reached by car via Clearwater.

Wells Grey doesn't get the publicity of other parks which is good for those lucky enough to discover it's beauty and not have the overcrowding that something this spectacular usually has . There are 3 main waterfalls with easy access that attract most of the visitors and then many others to explore if you have the time . The road... More

We were staying near Clearwater for an night and arrived at the info centre with an afternoon to spare. We had no idea about this provincial park but were completely taken by its scenery and peaceful nature. We wished we had more time and pan to go back and spend much more time them.
