  • We came on a Monday and the cross country trails were empty. The trails were groomed and easy to manage. We were blessed to see an owl and a woodpecker. The scenery was magnificent.  more »

  • I love this provincial park. Not too busy. Had nice beaches and canoe and kayak rental. Nice trails for hiking. Yurt for rental. Very nice staff. Comfort station is clean. But it got a very small park store. If you missed anything, you may have to leave the park to get them.
  • Hidden gem just north of Peterborough. amazing 15 km hike trail around the lake. Absolutely no crowded. Loon can be heard miles away. Some campsites can be challenge as only walk accessible but you will get rewarded.
  • Very quiet and unique provincial park, the sites appear as if you're back country camping. However, watch out for raccoons, they're everywhere, even when you don't see them (and I didn't but my garbage says they were around).
  • my favourite provincial park by far - great site options - yurts, walk-ins, drive-ins, and cabins coming soon. several beaches to choose from and lots of places to picnic if you take the canoes or paddle boards out. The hiking trail is challenging - tough to do when it's wet.
  • After crossing beautiful forest reaching the lake is amazing , good for adventurous people
