  • This park is an awesome place to camp or just for a day visit. Lots of ducks and geese fly over the park during their migration. 
  • The park warden was on a power trip. Authority had gone to her head. There are new wardens there this year, and they should be let go. For twenty years we have been coming here with no problems at all...  more »

  • Amazing place. Very clean. Planned activities for kids. Nice lake. OK beach. Amazing staff. Probably favourite campground
  • Nice little provincial park on the north shore of Lake Erie. A lot less crowded than Long Point and Turkey Point. Camp sites offer good privacy. Campers seemed to be more friendly and less rowdy than other parks we've been to.
  • Love the sites, staff not always friendly enough. Canping here is good tho! Badminton court in the sand by the washroom building near the back is good, although it'd be better if there was a net set up... love going here even just to visit family while they're camping.
  • Very nice location. It has a wide grass lawn leading up to the beach so it is easy to get a wagon and a bunch of people carrying things down to the picnic tables near the beach. There are lots of picnic tables and most are in afternoon shade so that was a nice thing to see. The beach is pretty rocky with some sandy patches. The water does get deep faster than other beaches like Port Burwell or Long Point. The water was quite choppy the day we were there but not sure if this is a usual thing. Our young kids definitely needed life jackets and had to stay closer to an adult than at other beaches. The first meter or two of the water is rocky so water shoes might be a good idea.
  • No debris in the water but it's murky. Tricky to get in due to large pebbles. Dogs on the dog - free section of the beach. Otherwise, lots of trees and shade, benches and picnic tables, all necessary facilities are there. The store is well stocked with essentials and has ice cream.
