    If close by, certainly drop by, but as for a provincial park goes, it could do with a miss. Mostly about aboriginal long houses and culture, there are some interesting hiking trails.  more »

    This is cool, very cultural & stuff. I thought the longhouses were real until you open one that has modern interior with TVs playing in it. Cool place to see with family.

    I have been to Crawford lake a few times. A couple of times with my family and once on my own. With my wife and 3 kids we did the loop around the lake and the escarpment trail. They loved the hike the escarpment trail was a good challenge in parts. I did the hike to rattlesnake point and back on my own. It was incredible, I did the hike in October and I got there early and saw two deer on my hike. Amazing views along the way! Great trails!

    Been here a few times over the years, love what they've done with the longhouses. Went to an Anishnabe teachings seminar with Eddy Robinson. Well worth it, and looking forward to more. People from all over, different clans and First Nations, humans of all kinds, lol. Very enlightening for me.

    Started our hike at Rattlesnake point and ended up at Crawford lake by accident. Well you could say we got kind of lost. I am glad that we ended up there, what a gorgeous place. I felt like we were miles away from civilization. We definately want to return to Crawford lake again!!
