  • The staff are so friendly and it's a beautiful park to explore in the winter. We stayed in the winterized cabins and they were so fabulous. -20° outside and you were toasty warm inside. Highly recommended as a winter camping trip!
  • Beautiful, serene and clean! Park Warden Jennifer, and the rest of the staff, were incredibly kind and helpful, even calling me a week in advance to make sure things were discussed prior to our arrival. Stayed in a yurt in early December and it was very l comfortable and clean. Definitely will be returning soon!
  • Great for tent camping. The roads in the campground are very hilly and steep which can make driving with a trailer difficult. Sites have a lot of trees and entrances are narrow. Great for tents but hard to back up a trailer. The hiking trails are very nice. Next time I'll be heading back to reserve a hike in site.
  • You can rent a canoe for 6 hours for 25$. and you can rent a camping spot deep into jungle for 45 $ per night... the amenities are very clean and the lake is truly quite and peaceful...perfect weekend getaway only 2 hours away from Toronto.... a lot of rental cottages around the area... recommended
  • Long weekend in a yurt with a wood fire stove! This was our first time in a yurt. It was amazing! Wood and propane provided by the park. Propane for the bbq. Close to snow shoe trail bonnies pond. Heated shower rooms and dish washing station a short drive from our yurt. Highly recommend this experience!
