Known as the "Waterfall Park", Wells Gray contains 1.3 million acres of wilderness. The park is characterized by climate extremes, with frequent summer thunderstorms and snow that lingers until mid-April. Formerly extremely volcanic, the park is heavily glaciated, an ideal habitat for at least 50 different mammals, and 170 species of birds. Spectacular hikes are a trademark of this park; Helmcken Falls, Canada's highest and twice as high as Niagara, is one of the most popular. Three campgrounds in the park have a total of 88 sites. Camping fees are charged from May to September.
This is just one of hundreds of British Columbia Provincial Parks.
