Wells Gray Provincial Park
Wells Gray park lies somewhere halfway between Vancouver in the west and the Rocky Mountains in the east and the accessible part of it consists of forests and hills. The park is a provincial park, which means that admission is free. Entrance to the park is in the small town of Clearwater. From here a 30 km road leads to the entrance of the park. We stayed for two nights at the Helmcken Falls Lodge just outside the park. Once you enter the park a 10 km road leads to the main attractions of the park, being the Dawson Falls and the Helmcken Falls. Beyond the parkinglot at Helmcken Falls, a dirtroad continues for some 20 km, and that's it as far as roads go in this park. At the end of this dirtroad there is a small campingsite and the possibility to rent canoes or arrange full or more day canoe trips.
Because this park is not so developped, chances of seeing bears and other wildlife are said to be better than in the more famous parks. We did not see very much wildlife however (apart from the 30 types of mosquitos in the park). If you do not plan canoeing and longer hiking, this park would not be my first suggestion to other people. You could also opt to drive to the park, visit the two main attractions (Helmcken Falls and Dawson Falls) and leave again.
