For a factual description, I cannot improve on the Wikipedia entry: "Plitviče Lakes National Park is a 295-sq.-km forest reserve in central Croatia. It's known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. Walkways and hiking trails wind around and across the water." It is truly a wonderland of lakes, small waterfalls, mossy vales, and hordes of tourists. Summer is not the time to go if you don't enjoy crowds. My suggestion to the tourist authorities in Croatia would be to advertise other parks in their wonderful country, and try to spread the crowds across their other attractions. It really didn't seem like all the people visiting Plitvice were really interested in the park - they just seemed to be doing a standard tour because they had paid. Now the paths and boardwalks are quite narrow, so huge prams and bulging backpacks really detracted from the experience. I would suggest that t he park authorities reduce the general admission price to the park (presently quite expensive) and instead charge an additional fee for each boat trip. This would encourage more people to walk farther afield, rather than just taking boat trips because they were included in the admission price.

Plitvice are great even if your visit is during a family week when half of Croatia are there. Nature is beautiful, whenever you go can see something different, but autumn is special. Better to visit after a few rainy days, then there is more water. One tip, dont go with small kids - if they dont wonna walk, and there is a very small chance than a two year old will walk for more than a kilometer youll end up carrying them rest of the way, and the shortest route takes up to 3 hours or aprox 6 km

Plitvice National Park is a place that you have to visit. Beautiful nature, amazing. During our visit there was very crowded, a lot of People, so I don't enjoy the nature. I have to return to visit again in peace.

I don't even want to know how this feels in the summer but in September it was very crowded. The pathways are tiny and a lot of people are trying to stick to their tour guide and don't get to see much or take pictures, everyone is somehow in a hurry... Awful experience.

The place, on the other hand, is amazing. But people ruin it. I would love to go there again sometime when there won't be so many many tourists.

WOW, WOW, WOW. A must see and the highlight is the trip so far. Beautiful waterfalls, the clearest water I've ever seen. Plenty of small fish (chub) and a few pike. Really beautiful but I can see it wouldn't be pleasant if there are crowds - October and a week day worked very well.
