  • The park is completely overcrowded in the summer. A good time to travel is April, when the snow has largely thawed. Some parts of the park are unfortunately closed due to weather conditions, but you avoid the crowds. The trails are exposed in a number of time and occasionally the marjkations are not good to see. It makes sense to arrive by shuttle bus. The $30 parking fee for a car is a little happy-like. There is no entry fee in April.

  • Beautiful park with some trails that are unfortunately not so well described. Paths are exposed and not always well marked. The park is pretty crowded in the summer. Recommendation is to take the shuttle bus. The $30 fee for entering a car is also pretty happily.

  • This park has its wonderful nature sight - however being the only park on the north east is extremely crowded and over populated by people. If you try to go there during summer weekend - make sure you book your camping spots way in advance as space is limited.
  • Very Beautiful National Park ! Probably my favorite that I’ve been to. Unfortunately a lot of the good trails were closed off for the winter and I had come unprepared but there was still beautiful sites to see ! For sure would want to come back to this Park because it has so much to offer.
