Sights and Activities

Cost

Like the other Canadian National Parks, entry is about $10 per person per day ($20 for families or groups, up to seven people in one vehicle). However, you can get an annual pass (good for the month you buy it, the next month and a full year after that) for just under $70 ($140 for family or group).
