Fodor's Review

The Wilderness Access Center near the park's entrance at Mile 237.3, George Parks Highway, is where you can handle reservations for park campgrounds and bus trips into the park. There's also a coffee stand—your last chance for a cup of joe unless you bring the makings for campsite coffee with you. A smaller building nearby is for those visitors who want to travel and stay overnight in the wilderness. The Backcountry Information Center has backcountry permits and hiking information, including current data on animal sightings (remember the whole park is bear territory), river-crossing conditions, weather, and closed areas. The center is closed in winter (mid-September–mid-May). Free permits are required for overnight backpacking trips, but you won't need one for day hiking.
