large team of knowledgeable, friendly people. The info centre is located in the middle of the town. They provide you with maps and lots of resources. This is were you can buy the National park tickets for few days trip. one problem: no washroom! so if you just need to go.... go to one of the coffee shops around.

The visitor center was in the middle of the town. There was no parking lot. My husband dropped me by the curb and went in search of parking since there was nothing available nearby. There wasn't any information sitting out readily available and there were extremely long lines waiting to talk to the few workers, so we gave up and... More

Being right downtown does make finding parking a bit harder and it can get pretty busy in the information center. We try our hardest to make sure everyone gets all the information that they need and thank you for noticing that! We don't have trail information avaliable to just take since we want to make sure that everyone knows about... More

Maybe just luck, but the first week of September was perfect weather; some overnight snow, but almost 60F in the afternoon. I've seen some negative reviews, but all we encountered were courteous staff members that seemed to be busting their rear to make sure hundreds of visitors would leave happy. Great views from their large windows. We will go back.

Very knowledgeable folks who want to make sure your trip is fun but safe. Please make a stop in here to learn more about the places you want to visit, things you don't know about the area and how to enjoy the park safely.

Safely is one of our main concerns. Being in a National Park we do have a lot of different animals sharing the area with us. We want everyone to have a safe and fun vacation! Thank you for the review. More

Although our tour guide provided an excellent overview of Jasper, the friendly folks at the Information Centre provided a wonderful perspective. There are many sites that may be otherwise overlooked. For example, there’s a bike/walking trail across the railroad tracks, but take care: it leads to the base of the mountains and there is abundant wildlife. Within a block of... More
