Plitvice In September

We fly into Zagreb arrving at 08:30 on Wed, September 11, and are getting a rental car, driving to Plitvice and will spend one night before continuing on to Split. We are staying at a hotel inside the park.

(1) Is the park still operating under summer hours at this time?

(2) Can we expect it to still be extremely crowded starting around noon which is when i am guessing we will be arriving? Or will the crowds be less at that time of year?

(3) Would our best plan to see the most with the least amount of crowds be to visit the upper lake on our first day and the lower lake in the morning of our second day?

crowds definitely ease down at that time and you should be ok. your plan sounds good (upper and lower lake).

for driving, take the highway to Karlovac, exit, and just drive straight through the town without turning, which will get you to a 2 lane road, and again just straight ahead to Plitvice for some 80 km.

you may be getting a GPS but if not ask your car hire firm which way to leave Zagreb airport - there weren't signs that were helpful at the start (they are all relevant to the city) but we knew we had to turn right as we left etc and did finally pick up the long distance signs. We thought we were going wrong for 2 or 3 miles though.
