Visitor guidelines

Kootenay National Park

Parks Canada protects Canada’s national treasures for present and future generations. Thank you for helping us by doing the same. Take the pledge:

  • I will never feed wildlife or leave food or garbage outside
  • I will keep my dog on a leash for its safety and for the comfort of wildlife. 
  • I will leave all flowers, rocks, antlers and artefacts where I found them so that others can enjoy them as I have.
  • I will leave my drone, firearm, and motorised equipment at home to preserve the peace and safety of the national park.
  • I will carry bear spray while hiking and will learn how and when to use it.

See something that concerns you? Please report it to Park Dispatch at 403-760-1470.

Simple steps make a big difference. We look forward to welcoming you!
