Plitvice Lakes - arriving late afternoon - can we get in ?

We are arriving at Plitvice Lakes around 4pm on Sunday (late August) after driving from Zadar. Can we still access the Park or will be ticket office be closed ? - can you still walk into the Park without a ticket in the evening? (do they check tickets when you use the boat, bus etc). We are staying overnight at the Plitvice Hotel, so plan to do some of the Park that afternoon and the rest the following day. Thanks

Chek the working hours at

www.np-plitvicka-jezera.hr/en/index.php .

If you have an entire day to spend at Plitvice do not worry about the afternoon.

Entrances are strictly controlled.

Thanks for info - i think we would still like to split our walks across the 2 days. Looking at the lakes website, it seems the ticket sales office close at 4pm, but the park dosn't close til 8pm - is my understanding correct ? We are staying at the onsite hotel - do they sell tickets for the park or have any options we could consider - just thinking if we arrive at 4:30, it would be a shame not to make use of a few hours in the afternoon. Thanks

I believe that you shall arrive in time and enjoy in the lakes for two days.

In case that it would not be possible to enter the lakes after 4.00 pm make a short trip to the nearby Bosnian town Bihac to taste the food and ambiance of Orient if you have not yet seen it.
