Campground is 70km from Clearwater, BC, so make sure you have adequate supplies for your stay. Waterfalls are the main attraction for this park. Visit them all if you have time, as they each have their own "personality" (Spahats and Helmcken were our favourites. We viewed Helmcken from the bottom tourist area and hiked through the forest to the top.... More

very quiet which is lovely and this really is a spectacular park! Most is accessible only by foot, however some of the most spectacular waterfalls can be easily reached by car via Clearwater.

This is a little known treasure - at least to Floridians. Our party of 4 loved this park with all its waterfalls, beautiful hikes and variety of scenery. LOVED every second of it. Plan on spending the whole day and start from the farthest point and work your way back.

Growing up in Hong Kong we hardly ever get a chance to experience the beauty of nature, so my last visit to the Wells Gray Provincial Park was very memorable. We went during early October, the weather was perfect for hiking and outdoor activities, with plenty of sunshine. Driving from Kamloops it took a little less than two hours. We... More

Because of our fairly tight touring schedule, we only had one day exploring the park and it's really not enough, but we saw as much as we could and had a great day. Highlights included Osprey lookout which is quite a hike to the top, Dawson Falls, Helmcken falls and the Green Mountain Lookout Tower. My own favourite was the... More

Second visit of the year, the first in the spring. Autumn offers a completely different perspective and equally appealing for a photographer with different lighting and tree colours. This place should be number one on any persons visit to BC. It shows the real Canada in an untouched wilderness. The trails are easy to follow and most attractions close to... More

This park is easily overlooked when considering a trip to the Rockies, but its definitely worth spending an extra day here when travelling between Jasper & Vancouver. There are lots of lovely waterfalls to see. We were lucky enough to see Salmon jumping upstream (late August) and a bear walking down the road. Its also free to enter, and easily... More

A beautiful park which deserves to be visited as Jasper and Banff. Nice stop between Vancouver and the most famous Rockies parks

We ended up staying 3 days as there was so much to see. We enjoyed all the Falls the most but the view from Green Mountain was also lovely. There are endless Hiking Trails. The little trek out to the Ray Farm and Mineral Springs was very interesting. If you visit the Park, it would be best enjoyed in nice... More
