Wood Buffalo National Park

Wood Buffalo National Park in the Northwestern Territories is Canada’s largest national park at 17,300 square miles (44,807 sq km). Larger in area than Switzerland, it’s the 2nd-largest national park in the world and offers a variety of campgrounds, cabins, and reservations for overnight stays and stargazing. The park also celebrates an annual Dark Sky Festival, scheduled every August. Please note that while observation sites remain open year-round, front country camping is only available from May through September.
