Grasslands National Park of Canada
Enjoy the true wilderness of Grasslands National Park though backpacking! This is the only national ‘prairie’ park! Enjoy the rolling hills, deep coulees, stunning valleys and the badlands. With minimal services provided, Grasslands is a great place to “get away!”
The Prairie Wilderness:
We don’t often think of the prairies as being a “wild” place. The prairie weather can be unpredictable. Hot days or lightning storms are not uncommon. It is easy to become disoriented and distances are often difficult to judge. Potable water cannot be found in the park.
