Reviewed July 6, 2014

This park is just awesome. Go to the visitor center and talk to all the friendly staff. They even serve up some tea made from plants grown in the park.

There are lots of hikes you can take and the park staff also offer guided hikes.

There is lots of parking for both cars and RV.

Staff is helpful at the information center. Some interesting animal displays and information. Clean toilets.

For those who want to spend time hiking in the park, it's best to go on-line and book your camping platforms etc. as there are only a limited number of walk ins per day.

This was the highlight of our 3-month trip so far! The Dempster Hwy. seems a bit daunting at first, but the scenery is worth the drive on the rough road. The park itself is stunning! The mountains and flowers are breathtaking! We stayed at the campground in the park which was very clean and basic. Of course no services, but the firewood was free! And so was the view! We could have sat out all night watching the changing light and we were treated to a rainbow to boot! There are a few hikes close by - one to Goldensides Mountain which is a moderate hike about 2 hours return. The views are amazing! Another hike you can get to right at the campground is along the river - a nice stroll. There is another hike a few km's away - to Grizzly Lake but it was closed 1/2 way down as there was still snow and trees down so we didn't get to do that. The interpretive centre is new and staffed with very helpful and knowledgable staff. They have different programs and one day we got to learn how to make bannock. Very fun. Please don't be put off by the rough road - it's well worth it!

My wife and I chose this as an excursion from our tour. There were just the two of us and our guide. He was and excellent "guide." The only problem was we thought we were going to really hike somewhere. We had a good walk. Learned several things about the tundra, flora and fauna.
