It's not that big of a park. ;) There are plenty of signs when you get there and everything is pretty spectacular.

The national parks in Skaftafell and Jokulsargljufur were merged in 2008 into Vatnajokull national park, it covers 13% of the area of Iceland (several independant countries in Europe are smaller than the park) and is the largest national park in Europe.
