Had an amazing time water rafting, met a really great group of people. The experience was truly a memorable one we will treasure. We got out along the raft and floated, got out at one point and jumped off the rocks for a swim. Great times and a must if you're in the area.

We were a few weeks late for the prime time to stop as we visited the first week of November , but it was still amazing and a great learning experience for all of us . The first thing we noticed was the smell . It wasn't pretty ! Dead and rotting salmon do not emit the same odors as... More

Easily accessible during the Salmon run each year. Good, very informative signs explaining the life cycle of salmon types and the impressive numbers required for continued existence. Suitable for entire family. In good run years, the waters turn crimson with the fish jockeying for mates and spots to spawn. Minimal cost to visit.

Enchanting. We went in the abundant 4th year of the spawning cycle. Mid week has fewer visitors, while weekends are overrun with visitors. What's interesting is that everyone is quiet watching this beautiful phenomenon of nature...like being in a place of worship. It's a personal experience regardless of who your with. We went 3 days in a row. Took tons... More

During the annual run, it is such a joy to see the circle of life, as the salmon return year after year. Tons of information available on site. Nicely prepared walking trails. Great for a family outing

A Place to stop anytime. In the fall the Salmon run is something no one should miss. But the many trails the area supplies and views of the river keeps you in touch to Beautiful BC and what it all has to offer. Great place to look for the many Geo Caches that are located in the park and makes... More

this is truly a must see. on the on years, there are so many salmon you can almost walk across the fish to get to the other side. the river turns completely red because the salmon are red. sometimes you get to see a hungry bear. no real danger as they are catching fish. just stay clear. great photo ops.

Finally got to see the Salmon Run (salmon spawning). It was a sub-dominant year for 2015 but there were still a lot in the river, no bears to see catching the salmons, lots of already dead large salmon by the banks. Tips: 1) Research well for the best dates, specially the specific weeks for peak spawning periods; 2) bring polarized... More

Although we were a week or so early we saw lots of fish and sockeye with the very red bodies and green heads. The autumn colours of the forest were magnificent. Very good educational signing. No bears thank heavens.

Though I had heard of the sockeye run in the Adams all my life the first opportunity to visit was during last fall's migration. It was phenomenal with the water running red with the huge amount of spawning fish. There were busloads of people from around the world in attendance and a the Roderick Haig-Brown park where we were at... More
