  • Nice park to visit in the area. Smaller than most but still has a lot to offer. Offers hiking trails, beach, camping and scenic points.  more »
  • A beautiful park with lots of nice trails however trails really lack signs and most of the time you need to guess the direction. The other huge problem was the mosquitoes.. I admit were went unprepare...  more »
  • We stayed at Arrowhead in the East River Campground for 2 nights over the weekend. We were very impressed with the lot sizes and the privacy. We did find the electrical outlets to be far away. We love...  more »

  • Went out camping here with my 5 year old for the weekend. The parks is nice. The sites are very spread out which is great as you don't feel like you are sharing a site with others. Now for the not so great stuff. The non comfort station bathrooms are horrible. They are essentially permanent out houses. The smell is gagging. The comfort stations are a little better but the water pressure in the showers is akin to a power washer and aimed head high for children. My son could barely shower when we were there. They have a start button but no stop since it is a timer. The slope of the floor of the one we were is wasn't good and made the entire shower floor. There is only a small shelf for your clothing and belongings. It isn't horrible, but I am better there are better parks out there. Oh and the day we showed up a fire ban was put in place for the entire weekend so we essentially feed the entire mosquito population. They have a new building for the visitor center which is beautiful. The beach isn't great lakes style beach but it certainly does the trick.
  • Had a great time at Arrowhead Provincial Park. The washrooms were older but cleaned daily. The showers did flood up the whole room and had no ventilation. The lot sizes were large and very shaded which helped on the hot days. This is a huge park and we didn’t get to see everything, the hiking trails looked amazing. The beaches are great, picnic tables available and clean. The store is small but doesn’t have much for sale but it’s brand new.
  • Absolutely amazing camp ground. This place has the best Northern beach area I've ever been to. No weeds, no rocks gorgeous beach, clean water so enjoyable. Down side is the signage isn't the best for navigation while inside the park. Some of the washroom facilities are not the best but an amazing park.
  • I love this provincial park but this year it seems a bit disorganized. They're switching around the park stores to their new building at beach 2 but the transition is pretty bumpy. Quiet and great for families - the fishing this week was not great but there's a ton of small and large mouth Bass in Arrowhead lake. I'm still chasing trout in Mayflower lake but the chase is definitely fun! One complaint: we have a large camper and get a serviced pull through site, however the water tap is not threaded to hook your hose up to.
  • We enjoyed a sweltering June weekend here in our six man tent....Large, private, quiet camp sites in a beautiful wilderness setting. The trees are tall, the sand is fine and golden, and the water warm and inviting. The highlight of our trip was a kayak up a gentle stream to the waterfall. One the other side, the park is expanding and the set up is not ready for the summer season, nor are staff properly prepped. The store on site sells high priced park shirts but getting a coffee or hamburger bun is a challenge.
