We visited the park as part of an excursion from a Princess cruise. It gave us an insight into the lives of the First Nations and their culture. It was pleasing to see that totems had been "rescued" from abandoned villages and even more pleasing...More

We arrived on a cruise. We took the bus, 3dlls per person. Very representative totems. The bus came every hour so we had to wait some time before the other one came.

Nice clean park with beautiful things to see. Don't forget to go right next door and see the Potlatch park as well it is just as nice.
