An amazing part of the world, if you're in croatia it is definitely worth stopping by! I recommend staying the night before and night after so that youcan spend the whole day, otherwise you will only be able to do the shorter walks and not see much as there are tonnes of day trippers on guided tours that walk slowly.
We stayed at "hotel sven" and it was lovely and great value with a small kitchen to cook stove top and microwaved meals. There is no need to book a tour as there is ample signage for all the routes.
We took the longest route so we could see the whole park and it was worth it. It was a bit muddy so wear enclosed shoes. If you're of an average fitness the long walkis closer to 5-6 hrs and not 8. It's not very strenuous, most people could do it.
Lastly, buy food and get the cashout you will need in whatever city you are coming from as there is only one ATM in the whole park in one of the big hotels, and hotel and not all the restaurants were open when we were there. There is a small convenient store which would get you buy if you didn't bring anything but if you would like some choice definitely buy food before you arrive.
