11 Things to KNOW Before Visiting Wells Gray Provincial Park

Wells Gray Provincial Park is a huge wilderness area that has earned the nickname “Canada’s Waterfall Park” because it’s home to over 40 spectacular waterfalls! Seriously, I couldn’t believe it when I first visited! Along with beautiful clear lakes, great hiking trails, and lots of stunning viewpoints, this is one of those must-visit places in British Columbia.

There’s a ton to do in Wells Gray Provincial Park, from rustic camping and whitewater rafting to golfing and, of course, exploring the area’s many waterfalls. There’s a wild, untamed feel to this park that is perfect for those who love being close to nature and exploring the Great Outdoors.

If you want to take a walk on the wild side, then we highly recommend a visit to this amazing park. However, since it is so remote, there are a few things you need to know before you go so that you can make the most of your time in the wilderness!

1. About Wells Gray Provincial Park

Wells Gray Provincial Park is one of the biggest parks in British Columbia, and it’s known for its waterfalls, rugged mountains, and pristine lakes. It really is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts and those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

The park protects the southern region of the Cariboo Mountain range and covers over 5,250 square kilometers (2,027 square miles). To put that into context, it’s over 8 times larger than the city of Toronto!

In our introduction, we said that Wells Gray National Park is home to more than 40 waterfalls – but in fact, it’s home to 41 named waterfalls, and there are likely many more waiting to be discovered. This park is rugged and wild, so there’s always something new around the corner.

Before Europeans arrived in Canada, Wells Gray Provincial Park was a hunting ground for the Secwepemc, Tsilhqot’in, and Canim Lake people. The first European to settle in the park was John Ray in 1911, and two years later, in 1913, a land surveyor came across what is now known as Helmcken Falls.

After a forest fire in 1926 that caused a lot of damage to the area, the idea of establishing a park to protect the waterfall was floated several times, but was continually rejected by the government. However, finally, in 1939, a park was finally approved by Arthur Wellesley Gray, who is credited with establishing many of British Columbia’s earliest provincial parks.

As you’d expect from somewhere so wild, Wells Gray Park is home to a ton of interesting flora and fauna, including over 700 species of plants, 200 types of mushrooms, and 56 native mammals.

2. Where is Wells Gray Provincial Park?

The main attraction in Clearwater is Wells Gray!

The park is accessed from Clearwater, British Columbia, which is located in the North Thompson region of British Columbia. In fact, some of the park’s very best waterfalls are located just off the Clearwater Valley Road, a 68-kilometer (42-mile) stretch of road that runs between Yellowhead Highway and Clearwater Lake.

If you only have a single day to visit the park, you can drive along this road and tick off some of the top waterfalls, although we do recommend staying a little longer if you can.

Kamloops is another good base for visiting Wells Gray Provincial Park, but it’s located a little further away at around a two-hour drive from most of the best waterfalls. There is more accommodation here, but to be honest, we love the town of Clearwater and think that you’re much better off visiting the park from there!

3. When is the best time to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park?

Early in the morning, you can avoid the crowds like us!

We think that the summer is the best time of year to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park. If you’re a wildlife lover, this is the best time of year for spotting bears, deer, coyotes, and more!

It’s best to get an early start and head out in the morning because this is when the animals tend to be the most active – plus, you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful waterfalls without any crowds!

You’ll need your own wheels to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park independently, and driving around is also a lot easier during the summertime. Canadian winters are famously harsh and the roads in the area can be treacherous during this time if you don’t know what you’re doing.

4. Can you visit Wells Gray Provincial Park in winter?

Okay, so we know that we just said summer is the best time to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park, but it’s also stunning to visit in winter. We’re talking frozen waterfalls, ice towers, and snow craters. It really is breathtaking! 

However, you will need snow tires in order to visit the park in winter, and it’s always best to check road conditions before you go. Driving in the winter can be a lot more dangerous, so it’s also understandable if you’re reluctant to make the journey by yourself. If that’s the case, you can take a winter waterfalls tour instead and let someone else do the driving while you enjoy the spectacular frozen beauty of the park. 

5. Is it free to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park?

Yes! Unlike many other parks in Canada, there’s no need to purchase a Parks Pass to visit Wells Gray. It’s completely free, unless you’re camping. Campsites average between $20-$50 CAD per night, but we’ll get more into that later on in this post. 

6. What are the best things to do in Wells Gray Provincial Park?

Go whitewater rafting

This is easily the best thing to do!

Whitewater rafting along the Clearwater River is so much fun, and there are options for both families with kids and thrillseekers looking for an adrenaline-pumping ride along some grade III rapids.

We think that this whitewater rafting tour is perfect for families because it’s a fun trip along some of the river’s gentler rapids. Children as young as 7 can join the tour, and the guides are super friendly and encourage everyone to work together, so it’s an awesome bonding experience! They’ll also teach you more about the history and geography of the park, so it’s a great opportunity to learn more about the area. You can book online here for $123 CAD per person which includes snacks, a short guided forest hike, and all necessary equipment. 

For adventurous adults, this guided whitewater rafting experience is an absolute must when visiting Wells Gray Provincial Park! It’s a 4-hour tour that will take you to tackle Grade III rapids while admiring the park’s untouched volcanic scenery. It’s so much fun, and you’ll also have lots of chances to spot wildlife along the way, including bears and eagles! It costs $129 CAD per person, which we think is pretty good value and you can easily book a spot online.

Helmcken Falls – Must visit waterfall

Helmcken Falls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, Canada

Helmcken Falls is the fourth-highest waterfall in Canada, and it’s a very dramatic sight to see! It’s 141 meters (463 feet) tall and for us, it was definitely one of the most beautiful things we saw in the park. It’s a very powerful waterfall and you can often glimpse a rainbow shimmering in the mist around its base.

During the winter, the pressure from the water creates a huge snow cone at the bottom of the gorge, which often reaches up to 50 meters (164 feet) in height! If you want to see this natural phenomenon, it’s best to visit in January or February, because by March the cone usually grows so tall that it collapses in on itself. 

Helmcken Falls is 46 kilometers (28.5 miles) from Clearwater, and it’s a short walk from the parking lot to the viewing platform for the falls, although you can always kick things up a notch by hiking the Rim Trail! It’s a moderate 8-km (5-mile) hike which should take you about 3 hours to complete.

Spahats Creek Falls – Must visit waterfall

This stunning waterfall is so tall that it might just give you vertigo! It’s also pretty unique since the water cascades down the gorge from an unusual break in the rocks. 

And to make things even better, this waterfall is super easy to access. It’s an 11-km (6.8-mile) drive from Clearwater to the Spahats Falls parking lot, and then just a 5-minute walk from there to the waterfall viewpoint. 

Green Mountain Viewing Tower

Green Mountain Viewing Tower is about 40 km (25 miles) from Clearwater, close to the park’s golf course. It’s a wooden tower that offers amazing 360º views of the surrounding forested valley, mountains, and volcanoes. Climbing up this tower is a nice, easy way to take in the beauty of Wells Gray Provincial Park.

Triple Decker Falls

Triple Decker Falls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, Canada

As the name suggests, Triple Decker Falls is a 3-tier waterfall and we think it’s one of the best things to see in British Columbia! It’s just 4.2 km (2.6 miles) from Clearwater, so it only takes about 5 minutes to drive there. However, the parking lot is small, so it’s best to go early and make it the first stop on your road trip through Wells Gray Provincial Park. 

From the parking lot, it’s a 1-km (0.6 mile) hike to the falls up Candle Creek. It’s not a long walk, but it is quite steep and there’s very little signage. The trail is marked by blue dots painted on the trees, but they’re quite few and far between, so it’s worth downloading an offline map before you go.

Silvertip Falls

Silvertip Falls is a scenic waterfall that separates into several streams as it cascades down the side of Trophy Mountain. It’s also the tallest waterfall in Wells Gray Provincial Park at 167 meters (550 ft)! 

It’s 18 kilometers (11 miles) from Clearwater to the trailhead, and then you’ll need to hike for around 30 minutes to get to the base of the falls. The hike to the first viewpoint is 2.1 kilometers (1.3 miles) out-and-back, so it’s not super long, but it can be a bit challenging because it takes you over a lot of uneven and muddy ground. You’ll also need to keep your eyes peeled for roots that could trip you up! 

Once you get to the first viewpoint, you can also climb up higher to the upper viewpoint for even better views, but this is definitely more difficult than the initial hike. 

Moul Falls

We absolutely loved the beautiful Moul Falls. It’s the third-highest waterfall in the park, and the only one that you can actually walk behind, so don’t miss this one! There’s also a cave behind the waterfall that you can hike into during the summertime, which was definitely one of the best things that we did in Wells Gray Provincial Park. 

The parking lot for Moul Falls is 28 kilometers (17.4 miles) from Clearwater, and then it’s a 5.5 kilometer (3.4 mile) out-and-back hike to the falls. It should take you about 1.5 to 2 hours to hike to the falls, explore, and then head back to the car. 

Play golf at Wells Gray Golf & RV Resort 

Okay, so given how wild and rugged Wells Gray Provincial Park is, you might not expect to find a golf course here, but it’s actually a great place to perfect your swing! It’s a beautiful 9-hole course with amazing views, and it’s a 72-par course, which means it’s pretty challenging. It costs $30 CAD per person to play, which we think is a really reasonable rate for Canada. 

You can also play disc golf here, which is a really fun way to get some exercise if traditional golf isn’t your thing. Plus, it’s only $10 CAD per person to play! Disc golfing is a really fast-growing sport and it’s a lot of fun, and this scenic course is the perfect place to give it a go. 

You can even stay here overnight if you’re exploring Wells Gray Provincial Park in an RV or tent. There are serviced sites with power, water, and sani dumps, as well as a few with running water, which cost $55 CAD per night. Meanwhile, the non-serviced sites cost $45 CAD per night or $35 CAD for a tenting site.

The RV park has a modern shower building, a laundromat, picnic tables, and a large fire pit that’s perfect for big groups. It’s 35 kilometers (22 miles) from Clearwater, so it’s the perfect place for an overnight stop if you want to explore as many of the park’s hikes and waterfalls as possible.

Check out the visitor center

While we don’t always recommend visitor centers, but the Wells Gray Park Visitor Center is one of the best we’ve come across! I also have to get a shoutout to the helpful staff here. They have all the maps you need and can even help you book tours. Just mention if you have a particular waterfall or trail on your wish list, and they can help you get there!

While you’re here, you can also tour through the interpretive displays showcasing the Indigenous, geological, and cultural history of this region – it’s like a mini-museum! There’s also a gift shop where you can pick up some beautiful handmade Indigenous crafts.  

The Visitor Center is open daily from May until October from 9 am until 5 pm. If you’re coming outside of those months, give them a call at 250-674-3334 for visitor information.  

Dawson Falls

At 18 meters (59 feet) tall, Dawson Falls isn’t the highest waterfall in Wells Gray Provincial Park, but it’s very wide at 90 meters (295 feet) across. In fact, it kind of reminded us of Niagara Falls in that respect! 

Dawson Falls is 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Clearwater, and it’s a short hike from the parking lot to the waterfall itself. The trail is 0.7 kilometers (0.4 miles) each way, and it’s an easy walk with minimal elevation gain, so it should only take you around half an hour to tick this one off.

Go hiking

Wells Gray Park is a hiker’s paradise! Seriously, there are SO many trails to explore – more than 200 kilometers (124 miles) to be exact. Whether you’re interested in short, easy hikes to do in the afternoon or ones that will take all day (or multiple days!), Clearwater has it all.  

One of our favorite hikes is around Dutch Lake. It’s about a 4.5 km (2.8 mile) loop trail that is reasonably easy and takes about an hour. It’s mostly flat and well-maintained so it’s suitable for kids too. If you can, extend your hike from here to Triple Decker Falls. The hike between these two spots is scenic and not usually very busy. 

Another couple of trails to explore include the 5.8 km (3.6 mile) out-and-back Placid Lake Trail starting at the base of Green Mountain Road. You’ll pass by giant cottonwood trees as well as old forest and new forest that has regrown since a devasting fire in 1926. For a longer summer hike with a stunning reward, hike to the summit of Trophy Mountain on the Trophy Meadows Trail. It’s a full-day hike that passes through incredible wildflower meadows.

Go on a cruise with Clearwater Lake Tours 

We don’t know about you, but we love a good nature cruise, especially in an area as beautiful as Wells Gray Provincial Park. Clearwater Lake Tours offers a great 1-hour cruise that can help you to spot some of the park’s best wildlife from the water, including bear, moose, deer, and caribou. In fact, sometimes you can even see the latter two species swimming across the lake! 

Plus, you’ll have a guide who will tell you all about the cultural and natural history of Wells Gray Provincial Park as you glide across the lake, so it’s a nice way to learn more about the area. The cruise costs $89 CAD per adult and $42 for under 12s (including GST), and we think it’s a really nice way to see the park from a different perspective. 

Bailey’s Chute

Bailey’s Chute is a powerful whitewater rapid that’s worth checking out at any time of year, but especially during the salmon run in late August and September when you can see Chinook salmon leaping upstream. Chinook are the biggest kind of Pacific salmon, and they can weigh up to 22 kilograms (48 lbs) so seeing these guys battling against the current is a really cool thing to witness.

The parking lot for the trail is 56 kilometers (35 miles) from Clearwater, and then the walk itself should only take you about 10 minutes each way. The trail is a short, easy walk that takes you through an old-growth forest to a small platform that overlooks the chute itself. It’s best to go in the early morning or the evening if you can, as this is when the salmon are most active.

7. Where can you stay in/near Wells Gray Provincial Park?

Helmcken Falls Lodge and RV Park

Helmcken Falls Lodge and RV Park is an ideal place to stay when exploring Wells Gray Provincial Park. It’s located along Clearwater Valley Road, which runs right through the park and is 35 kilometers (21.7 miles) from the town of Clearwater itself. It’s also just a 15-minute drive from Helmcken Falls, which is a must-see when you’re in the park! 

You can choose to either stay in one of the resort’s cozy lodges or you can camp on one of their 19 grass RV sites. The lodges have en-suite bathrooms, but no kitchens, fridges, or TVs, so this is still a pretty rustic experience! Meanwhile, the RV sites have electricity and water hookups, and there’s also a shower block and a covered picnic area, so you’ll have everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Pyramid Campground

If you want a more rustic camping experience, then Pyramid Campground is perfect. In fact, you can spot lots of wildlife while staying here, including bears! 

The campground is 43.5 kilometers (27 miles) from Clearwater and is close to Dawson Falls and Pyramid Mountain itself. The facilities are basic, with pit toilets, no electricity, and no showers, but it costs just $20 CAD per night so it’s a great budget option if you’re traveling in an RV. It’s first come, first served but there’s no need to arrive early, as it’s rarely full and you have to register in the evening anyway. 

Blue Grouse Country Inn B&B

This cute B&B is a nice and comfortable place to spend a night in Wells Gray Provincial Park. It’s 24.6 kilometers (15 miles) from Clearwater and they’ve got suites and cottages available which all come with WiFi, a flat-screen TV, a private bathroom, and a fridge. But what we like the most about this place is the beautiful garden, which is full of colorful flowers, and a pond where you can often see deer grazing nearby. 

Blue Grouse Country Inn B&B is only open from May to September, and rooms start from $220 CAD per night, although you could pay as much as $700 CAD per night for a cottage in peak season. You can check prices and availability for your stay online here.

Battle Creek Ranch, Wells Gray Park

Battle Creek Ranch is a working ranch that offers chic rooms with amazing mountain views. It’s a super quiet, family-run property that has a nice balance between old-world vibes and modern amenities. All of the rooms come with a private terrace, a kitchenette, and a private bathroom, so you’ll have everything you need, despite feeling like you’re being transported back in time to the Wild West. 

The ranch is 29 kilometers (18 miles) from Clearwater and rooms can be easily booked online starting from $166 CAD per night, although there’s a 2-night minimum stay. It’s close to lots of Wells Gray’s best attractions, so we think it’s an ideal base for exploring the park! 

Nakiska Ranch

Nikska Ranch is 29.5 kilometers (18.3 miles) from Clearwater and all of the rooms have private bathrooms and terraces, and some of the bigger units also have kitchenettes. There’s a barbecue area on site and the rooms are super cute and cozy. 

Prices start at $163 CAD per night for a queen room or $593 CAD per night for a two-bedroom house that sleeps up to 6 people, so this is a great place to spend the night if you’re traveling in a group. You can also add breakfast for an extra $25 CAD per person, which is handy because there aren’t a lot of places to eat inside the park. Book a stay at the Nakiska Ranch online.

Wolfwood Guest Ranch

Wolfwood Guest Ranch is a quiet property with just four chalets, so if you’re looking for a place to get away from it all, we think that this would be perfect! There’s even a small lake on site where you can relax or even go for a swim after a day of exploring, and room service breakfast is included, which we think is a huge bonus. 

There are also lots of ranch animals on site, including alpacas, chickens, and some very friendly dogs. There’s such a lovely atmosphere here and we think it’s a great choice for families. 

The ranch is 31.3 kilometers (19.3 miles) from Clearwater and rooms start from $179 CAD. There’s also no prepayment needed and there’s a flexible cancelation policy in case your plans change, which is something we always appreciate. Check availability for your dates online through Booking.com.

8. Where to stay in Clearwater, BC

Since the town of Clearwater is just outside of Wells Gray Provincial Park, you can also choose to stay right in town! It is a small town (population of around 2,000 people), so there aren’t a ton of choices for hotels. Luckily, if you plan ahead and book in advance you should have no problem getting into one of these great hotels in Clearwater below:

Best Western Plus Gateway to the Falls

This is hands-down, the best hotel in Clearwater, especially for the prices as low as $210 CAD in the summer! If you’re looking for a comfortable stay with a touch of luxury, the Best Western in Clearwater is exactly what you should book. This modern hotel offers everything from standard rooms to suites with full kitchens. There is an onsite fitness center and breakfast is included in the room rate.

You can check prices and book the Best Western Plus Gateway to the Falls on Booking.com.

Ace Western Motel

If you’re after a reasonably-priced stay right in the center of town, the Ace Western Motel has you covered. All rooms have queen beds, air conditioning, coffee-making facilities, a private bathroom, as well as a TV. Ample parking is available on site and it’s free, plus, there is a restaurant here too so there’s no need to hunt for dinner.

Choose between a standard queen room, a queen room with a balcony, or a room with two queen beds that sleeps up to 4 people. The nightly rate averages around $160 CAD in the peak summer season. You can check prices and book the Ace Western Motel on Booking.com.

Grizzly Paw B&B

Conveniently located just a 5-minute drive north from town the Grizzly Paw B&B features two bedrooms with 1 king and 1 queen bed, 1 bathroom, a fully-stocked full-sized kitchen, and a living room.

In the mornings you will be served a delicious and warm homemade breakfast and at other times during the day, you can access a private entrance to grab snacks like fruit and cookies. For the price of just $375 CAD a night, the value of the place is huge! This home is the perfect wilderness escape for small families or friend groups. You can check prices and book Grizzly Paw B&B on Booking.com.

9. How long do you need to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park?

You could tick off most of the park’s top attractions in a single day, but we think that it’s better to stay for 2-3 nights, either in the park or in Clearwater, so that you can take your time exploring.

This is especially true if you want to do lots of hiking while you’re here! Wells Gray Provincial Park is so scenic and peaceful that it’s not the kind of place you want to rush through. 

10. Tips for visiting Wells Gray Provincial Park

Bring layers:

You’ll definitely want to bring plenty of layers with you to explore Wells Gray Provincial Park. In the winter, it gets very cold and so you’ll need to wrap up warm. 

Meanwhile, in the summer, there can be quite a few rain showers throughout the day so you’ll need a light waterproof jacket. Temperatures in the park are fairly cool during the summertime, averaging between 18-20°C (64-68°F), but you might find yourself getting quite warm while you’re hiking! It’s best to wear light, loose layers because there are also lots of mosquitos around at this time of year. 

Bug repellent:

As we mentioned, there are a ton of mosquitos in Wells Gray Provincial Park during the summer, so you’ll definitely want to bring some good insect repellent with you. 

Picaridin can protect you for up to 12 hours at a time from ticks, mosquitos, and flies, and it’s much kinder on your skin than DEET. You can buy it in concentrations of up to 20%, and we recommend going for the strongest one possible because nothing ruins time in the great outdoors like being eaten alive by bugs!

Head to the visitor center right away (it’s so helpful):

We definitely recommend making the Wells Gray Visitor Center your first port of call when visiting the park. The staff are really friendly and will help you plan your visit, from checking conditions and finding a suitable hiking trail to booking accommodation. There are also lots of interpretive displays that will give you some context about the park before you start exploring on your own, which we really appreciated. 

Bring lunch or snacks into the park:

There’s hardly anything to eat in the park. Some of the accommodation options we mentioned include breakfast, but other than that, there are basically no shops or restaurants around, so you’ll need to bring lunch and snacks with you. You can stock up in Clearwater before you go at somewhere like Buy Low Foods or Jim’s Food Market.

Fuel up before heading in: 

There are no fuel stations after you leave Clearwater, so make sure to fill your tank before you head into Wells Gray Provincial Park. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a very sticky situation! A full tank should be able to last you for a few days as you explore the park’s waterfalls and trails since they’re all relatively close together, 

11. Is visiting Wells Gray Provincial Park worth it? 

Spahats Creek Falls
Yes!

Yes, 100%! It’s home to some of the best waterfalls in Canada.

We had so much fun exploring the park’s waterfalls and hiking trails. It’s the perfect place to spend some time in the Great Outdoors so if you’re keen to explore the Canadian wilderness, definitely don’t skip this place.

Renting a Car in British Columbia

Road trips are the best way to explore Canada!

If you’re arriving in British Columbia via plane, then I can’t recommend getting a rental car enough. British Columbia is a large province, and traveling between the best places to visit in BC requires transport. Although you can use public transport on some occasions, this means your trip will not only require more time but more planning.

Car rental in Canada isn’t relatively cheap, but it’s not that expensive either, especially if you get a budget car. The cheapest car with a pick-up and drop-off in different locations is around $100 CAD per day. The price does vary though, depending on the time of year. For car rentals, I use the website Discover Cars. It’s a search engine with lots of deals with good customer service. In fact, I’ve used Discover Cars all over the world, including in Chile, New Zealand, and Australia.

Another popular option is to rent a campervan or motorhome (only for the brave in winter.) Using Motorhome Republic, you can search hundreds of deals across multiple companies to pick a great vehicle and the cheapest price. Having a motorhome is a stunning way to see Canada, and using crown land and campsites, you can often camp for free or very cheap in the most beautiful places imaginable!
