Activities and experiences

Wood Buffalo National Park

Welcome to the largest national park in Canada and the world’s largest Dark Sky Preserve. Wander through a boulder field across Grosbeak Lake’s weird salt landscape. Snap photos of bison herds wallowing in the dirt along Pine Lake Road. Watch meteors and northern lights from the comfort of your campsite.

Start planning your trip here.

Multiple wildfires are actively burning throughout Wood Buffalo National Park. Now is not the time to visit.
There are several area and road closures in place, due to fire operations, active wildfires and unsafe conditions in burned-over areas. Get more information on fires in the park here and related closures here.

Travel is not recommended along the Pine Lake Road. Significant downfall from windy conditions is impacting the road. Fire remains active along portions of the road. Hay Camp Road is closed. There is a NO STOPPING area on Pine Lake Road from Salt River Bridge (Park boundary) to the junction with Parsons Lake Road.   



Indulge in the escape. There’s no cell service here - just starry skies, singing birds, and the turquoise waters of Pine Lake.

Day Hiking

See the park from new perspectives on short, relaxing strolls and long, scenic loops.


We are the world’s largest Dark Sky Preserve. You’ve never seen the stars like this.
