  • Fantastic beach, many Kilometres long, most of it empty if you are willing to walk about five minutes from the car park. Nice campgrounds, but book ahead because they are always full. Amazing oak savannah forest, like nothing else. The occasional deer sighting will brighten your visit. Sand dunes like you remember from childhood, except you can't run around in them any more, as the terrain is too delicate. But they are gorgeous.
  • Had a great time here. Easy to find, easy to reserve a spot online, and had no problems while camping. Super impressed with how clean their washrooms and showers are. Yes, they have hot showers here, you just have to let them warm up for a minute. Ladies at the office are really nice and they offer everyone a can of beans, which is random and awesome. You can buy firewood here, as well as groceries at the general store. I may bring a bike for next time, as this is a very big campsite. Have fun!
  • Great place to enjoy a bit of nature. There's a lot you can learn about this complex landscape and it's biodiversity at the Visitor's Center and topic nights at the amphitheater. Great spot for photographers and hobbyists of all sorts. Really enjoy bringing ‚Äčthe family canoe here to paddle the Ausable Channel. They also have a canoe/kayak rental in the warmer seasons, as well as bike rentals for the woodland trails. Indoors, outdoors, food, activities, there's something for everyone here.
  • The staff were very professional and approachable. The washroom and bath facilities were always clean. There is a store within the park if you needed food at reasonable price.
  • A great place to go for family camping. Staff keep the bathrooms in great shape. I recommend the alcohol-free weekends for a little more peacefulness. Poison Ivy is the only thing you have to watch out for here.
