    I was staying outside of huntsville for a couple of weeks in July and decided to take an afternoon to hike at Arrowhead and have a swim. The park entrance fee was $17 so in the future I would make sur...  more »

    A great place to visit if you are at a loose end for 4-5 hours. Great trails to follow and Lake activities  more »

    We paddled kayaks along the little East River. Winding, and with very little current, I loved the beautiful, scenic forest it runs through, ending near the falls. Incredible rock formations at the fal...  more »

    Arrowhead PP was a great park. The sites vary in privacy but there reservation system has decent photos to help you decide. Arrowhead offers some awesome sights and lots of trail, bring a bike! The bugs depending on the season can be heavy so be prepared. On arrival there was some junk (empty cans, tin cans) at the site but otherwise in good order. Overall would recommend.

    The facilities were all very well kept and clean. Nice trails, waterfall, and beautiful views. Even noticed there were canoe/kayak rentals (didn't rent anything because the bugs were bad this weekend). It was also nice and quiet even though it was a long weekend. The only downside to the trip was the amount of poison ivy ... Hard to avoid even when sticking to the trails. Our campsite had lots. We chose this park because it is dog friendly, but our dog has been infected with terrible amounts of poison ivy even though she was never off lead and we always stayed on the trails / middle of our campsite. She is a large breed with short hair and was very quickly infected. Maybe it was just the season or we maybe shouldn't have brought our dog. Like I said, everything was great, just be extremely careful around the poison ivy - try to choose a site without it (we were at Roe campground).

    Great park. The campground that we stayed at was very private, with plenty of bush between campsites (unlike some of the trailer sites in Algonquin campgrounds). The Stubb's Falls hiking trail is beautiful, as are the falls themselves (also dog friendly). The only downfall of this park is that the parking lot at the park office (where you check in) is fairly small, so traffic jams occur if too many people arrive at the same time. An annoyance that can be avoided by arriving at an off time.

    One of my favorite Provincial Parks. Camp sites have lots of privacy (space between) and are all pretty large. Hiking trails, biking trails, canoeing, Stubb's Falls, lots to do. In winter the ice skating trail is amazing. Close to Huntsville if you need to stock up on food or drinks while camping.

    Fantastic camping experience!!! Loved the trails as they were beautiful clean and fairly easy to do. The beach was great sandy and beautiful views across the shorelines. The campsites are great if you love trees and forest foliage, as almost every campsite in this park has all of this, great for privacy too. I never had an issue with the washrooms because I don't pay attention to that since I went here mainly for the camping and nature and scenery. The rangers are friendly and helpful and courtious and service is bang on. People can be loud at times at night but thats all great by me to hear someone is enjoying themselves while they camp, brings out the happy camping spirits in all of us. The parks maps are a little confusing and while driving around can get confusing the way they have so many roads leading from one place to the next in multiple directions and its like a maze in some parts, its easy to get lost fast. Other then that this is the perfect camping experience for all ages, from the novice camper to the pro level.
