We thought we would really like this park because of it's proximity to Campbellford and the Trent Canal. However, we did not make the connection that a campsite at the very top of the hill (site #39) meant constant wind and pretty much full sun. It was blistering hot and we were unable to open our awning. To make matters worse, the power kept going out. We heard from other campers that the same thing was happening to them. Once again, the water access was a drive away from the camping area. Although, the drive down to the suspension bridge was worth the trip! We stayed the night and, for health and safety reasons, moved on to another campground where we could get into the shade. Will not likely return to RV camp. Many nice looking [shaded/wooded] sites for tent camping, though.
Very unplanned provincial park. Only One narrow winding path to the campsites to reach. Only one shower for the entire park of camsites (approximately 170 or so). Very inconvenient location. You have to drive through a winding single path to the shower and drive back. Spend atleast 12 to 15 minutes to drive to your campsite if you are located after 120 campsite. Facilities are just ok. Can not compare to other well maintained parks. Bathrooms are clean.
Peaceful. Beautiful. One of my favourite places to go. Close to some awesome cheese, Empire Cheese...a fantastic bakery, Doohers, and great for a quick weekend away from home:)
It's a nice quiet park at night. The lack of any real privacy at the camp sites does detract from it. All the hiking trails can be done in one day. The suspension bridge offers some nice photo opportunities.
Our camping spot was decent. About half of it was shaded which was good enough for us. The highlight for me though was going down into the river and jumping from the top of the water fall. Walking along the rocky shallow part of the river was also a treat. There is apparently an active dam nearby so anyone wishing to go down into the river should be very careful. The campgrounds also have some good trails around. We enjoyed going on a hike to the river from our camp site. Washroom facility near our site was pretty clean too.
