We basically had the whole park to ourselves! We took our time driving from Helmcken Falls and all the way back into Clearwater. It was so beautiful. Did not pass another car! I imagine it is also beautiful in Summer, just a lot busier.

The sights in this PP parallel or surpass many that we experienced of our 4 month cross country adventure. I was more than impressed with the natural wonders of the various falls and scenic views but also with the condition of the trails and signage. Accessible to all ! We are planning to go back this month to see the... More

This is one of the nicest parks we saw in British Columbia. It is easy accessible by car and the 3 main waterfalls are easy to reach on foot at a short distance from each parking lot.

This park is huge depending on how long of an adventure you want. It is a bit of a drive in from the highway, but well worth the trip. There are a couple of RV and camping areas. The furthest at Clearwater Lake. There aren't a huge number of sites and would be nice to have more, but may take... More

Within the park between the falls, Spahat and Helmcken, there is a lookout on Green Mountain. You take a 4 km drive, on a thin dirt road, up the mountain and the view at the top is vast! I was there close to sundown, 3:30 pm, and the sky was turning pink. Within the lookout, 3 stories high, there are... More

After Banff and Jasper Wells Gray park is so peaceful and quiet. There are no huge hotels and there is no through road. That's why this park is relatively quiet and unspoilt. There are a couple of beautiful waterfalls wonderful nature. The falls are all within minutes from the one and only road. Half way into the park, the paved... More

This is a very lovely park for those wanting to get away from the crowds. The Caribou Mountains are less visited than the Rockies but have their own special beauty. Numerous waterfalls such as Helmcken, Saphats and Dawson Falls are a feature of the park, as is the beautiful Clearwater River. Most people access the park from the town of... More

We spent 2 days in this area and were so glad we did. The scenery is beautiful and it's a natural unspoiled park that is well worth visiting. The waterfalls are breathtaking and the walks are so pretty. Treat yourself and stop here to unwind.

I discovered this gem over 40 years ago in my early 20's and just came back with my wife to show her this hidden gem. It has the most impressive waterfalls I've ever seen, and I've seen a few. Such power coming out of a relatively small place in volcanic rock! I like this place more than Banff and Jasper!

We visited the Wells Grey Park in July 2016. This was our second visit to the park but we still found lots to do. The waterfalls are simply fantastic. There is plenty of wildlife to see and lots of wonderful walks. Plenty of car parks and very good direction signs.
