Located in the Rocky Mountains, Yoho National Park is another one of Canada’s stunning mountain parks. This park is on the western slopes of the Great Divide and sits on the border of British Columbia and Alberta. From the photogenic Emerald Lake to the impressive Takakkaw Falls and natural stone bridge, Yoho is full of beautiful lakes, meadows, waterfalls, and woodlands. The word “Yoho” comes from the Cree expression of awe or wonder, and you’ll find yourself sharing those thoughts as you visit this incredible507 square mile park. Hike along the many trails, take a kayak or canoe on the lakes, and gaze in amazement at the mountains of President Range. The weather in the park is varied and changes quickly. During the winter the park is covered in snow, and many of the trails and roads shut down due to ice and avalanche risk. The best time to visit the park is late June to early September when the heavy snow is melted and most passes and trails are open. Yoho Valley Road is also closed in winter and is typically open June through October, weather permitting. If you’re visiting in summer and plan to head to the high country of the park, bring a jacket and proper gear, as snow and rain can occur in higher elevations even during the summer months. Yoho National Park is located nearby and even adjacent to several other Canadian national parks, making it a great addition to your RV trip. It’s an easy drive to Banff, Kootenay, and Glacier National Park of Canada (which is different from Glacier National Park in the United States).

Things to do Outside Yoho National Park
Part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site, Yoho National Park is just one of several parks in the area. Others include Banff and Kootenay national parks, as well as provincial parks like Hamber Provincial Park, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, and Mount Robson Provincial Park. Banff National Park and Lake Louise are a short drive away, so it’s easy to stop by the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site to see the historic trading post on the North Saskatchewan River. Here you can learn about the history of the fur trade and the stories of the Indigenous Peoples. Or visit the Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum to see the artifacts and learn about the First Nations People of the Northern Plains and Canadian Rockies. And once you’re finished hiking and exploring, don’t miss the hot spring pools at Radium Hot Springs. These mineral hot spring pools are open year round and are full of naturally heated water. You can also explore the village of Radium Hot Springs and stop by Kootenay National Park and their visitor center.
