Yoho National Park is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains along the western slope of the Continental Divide of the Americas in southeastern British Columbia. Yoho NP is bordered by Kootenay National Park on the southern side and Banff National Park on the eastern side in Alberta. The name Yoho comes from the Cree word for awe and wonder.
Yoho covers 1,313 km2 (507 mi2) and it is the smallest of the four contiguous national parks. Yoho, together with Jasper, Kootenay and Banff National Parks, along with three British Columbia provincial parks—Hamber Provincial Park, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, and Mount Robson Provincial Park—form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. The park's administrative and visitor centre are located in the town of Field, British Columbia, beside the Trans-Canada Highway.

  • Really it's the only place to stop for a quick stretch for many miles. The facilities are kept clean and in good working order. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. The whole area is absolutely stunning. Definitely a favorite part of Canada. If you are driving through this area make sure to stop here for a break... you won't get another one for a long while anyway!
  • We love this little rest stop. There are wonderful clean washrooms and a host of park info officers to answer any questions. Wonderful displays and information as well as an amazing souvenir store. Near the water are picnic benches and a play ground for the kids. Definitely worth the stop to stretch your legs and breath in the air.
