This national park definitely represents the prairie landscape. There's a lot of prairie animals, you can easily spot them throughout the park. The park has a scenic drive route, it is quite a nice 1 hour drive around if you don't like hiking. Most of...More

Beautiful views, no matter which direction you face! We found the maps given to us from the staff very helpful, and the locations very easy to find. Roads are bumpy, but got us there safely. Will return again and again.

Parks Canada has a winner here. The land is rolling, short-grass prairie that takes you back in time. With the buffalo herds, antelope, deer and prairie dogs, you can easily imagine being here centuries ago. Parks Canada did a good job with maps, signage, trails...More

Loved this national park. It was so quiet and peaceful. Saw groups of prairies dogs, roaming bison, found fossils, and enjoyed the skies and scenery.

I had read some good material on this park and was really looking forward to experiencing it. Unfortunately it turned out the advertising/marketing was more impressive than the actual park. Also, there seemed to be more Parks employees who were very proactive in making sure...More

A lot of the park is accessed via a vehicle, so you could see quite a bit of the park through the vehicle. There are paths, but most are not paved so it may be difficult to push a wheelchair. It is quite flat, however

This park tries to keep the light pollution to a minimum, but you are still able to use your flashlights/headlights.

Wifi is found in some establishments in towns like Val Marie, such as the Convent Inn. The park itself is remote with even cell service unavailable. The park posts warnings about that for hikers.
