The National Park, located 42 kilometers north of Bolu in the Western Black Sea Region and south of Zonguldak, is reached by the roads separated from Yeniçağa at 152 km of Ankara – Istanbul highway and north from Bolu at 190 km. Yedigöller can be reached through Yeniçağa – Mengen – Yazıcık or Devrek- Yazıcık since the roads are closed due to snowfall in winter.
There are 7 lakes within the national park as Büyükgöl, Seringöl, Deringöl, Nazlıgöl, Küçükgöl, İncegöl and Sazlıgöl. These lakes are on two plateaus with an altitude difference of 100 meters between them. Büyükgöl is the largest lake in the plateau, which has an average height of 780 meters. Its deepest place is 15 meters. Deringöl in the southeast of Büyükgöl is connected to Büyükgöl with its 20 meter long flowing section.
The national park, which contains many plant species, has the most beautiful, mixed natural forests of our country. Beech, hornbeam, oak, alder, maple, elm, aspen, yellow and black pine, fir, hazelnut, lime and ash tree trees, which are the main tree species, are tall and smooth. There are also declining plant species such as badger.
There are bears, pigs, wolves, foxes, martens, squirrels, deer, roe deer and rabbits from wild animals, and wild ducks, wild pigeons and partridges from birds. Over 100 bird species have been identified in the National Park area. With these features, Yedigöller National Park is a paradise of nature. Every year, in the months of May and September, sportive angling can be done in Büyükgöl and Deringöl for a fee. There are lake trout and rainbow trout in lakes.
