Experiencing Wildlife in Jasper National Park

What wildlife do you have the potential of seeing?

Check out these videos and photos from travelers who saw elk, bighorn sheep and other animals in Jasper National Park.

This first video captures the elk in Jasper National Park who seem to like to make a detour through the campgrounds on the way to wherever they are going.  A Jasper camper captured this footage in Wapiti Campground, saying of the experience “such magical encounters are like brief visits to the Garden of Eden.”
