  • Stunning. Amazing natural setting, especially the walk-in campsites. Simple, safe alternative to canoe camping. Worth the drive if you are short on time but want to immerse yourself in nature and be surrounded by wildlife. I had a bear visit my campsite once, and always see water snakes when I visit. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but your car is only a short walk away. Staff are very helpful, friendly, and laid back.
  • Lovely camp sites - stayed in a serviced site in the Granite Ridge Campground on June 13/17. Interesting hiking trails. Clean and modern comfort stations. Still have some pit toilets to service remote parts of the campground. Friendly staff and newly renovated entrance to park.
  • We visited the park last Saturday. It was raining. Two Nice girls in the Office help to make two custom raincoats with garbage bag for us. It is very helpful. Thanks a lot. With the raincoat, We walk half way hrough the lakeshore trail. Very peaceful big lake, scenic, clean, well maintain. Running water washroom with heater. Walkin Campsite nicely sitting beside the lake. Only concern might be the mosquito.
  • Beautiful park close to Toronto. The hiking trails are scenic and boast a wide variety of mushrooms. The comfort stations are pretty great!
  • Nice quiet park and not too far from the city, cheap canoe rentals.
