We walked for two hours on the beach and then walked the rain forest trails. Most amazing place I've seen and I've traveled all over the world. Make a point of seeing it, you won't be disappointed!

Kwistis Visitor Centre was a very interesting place to spend a couple of hours on a wet day. The forest and bog trail was good too and we were lucky to have dry weather yesterday.

I was lucky enough to have a bright sunny day in March so I explored the trails. It was one the most beautiful places I've seen.

Hi Cynthia, You may buy your park passes very conveniently at the official website of Parks Canada. As for the dogs, you will find relevant sections nearly at all beaches.
