  • Pretty nice place to be. Far into the forest and away from city noise. Decent hiking to the waterfall but no water access unless you hang at the stream down below.
  • The park is a really interesting place to visit if you like farming history mixed with nature. The park was once a very large farm. The waterfall was used to generate electricity and supply pressurized water for the farm. The waterfall is a very interesting hike as well. The camp ground is out in the open and only some sites have limited privacy. If you get a camp site in an open area as opposed to a treed area it can get very hot. However, many of the campsites are only short walk from the lake / beach. The camp ground we stay at had a modern shower and bathroom facility. For us one of the best parts was the nature that we saw while we were there; deer, interesting insects and birds around are campsite, and marmots basking in the sun by the waterfall.
  • Great campground . Nice walking trail up to water falls. Nice beach area . Clean showers that are almost new . No Sani-dump, but you can use the one just down the road at Bear Creek provincial park .
  • Fintry Park is an amazing place to explore. It has a spectacular waterfall, with awesome trails surrounding it. The waterfall was best seen in the spring time. Mainly because this is when the ice melt runoff makes it what it is. The trails around the waterfall are great to explore because they have a lot if views and interesting little nooks and crannies around them. The stairs were a little but if a work out, but anyone with a general fitness level will be fine (my mother has had both knees replaced recently and it wasn't bad for her). If you are able to go inside the manor that is by the falls, I highly recommend it. For history enthusiasts it is quite the place to learn about. The ingenuity used to harness the waterfall for electricity and the drive to survive and succeed living there is enthralling. As well for any hunters going into the manor, there is a game room. It us full of exotic animals on display. All in all I love this park, as it is a piece of our areas history and just a cool place to go.
  • Fantastic campground especially if you have a boat. Nice rocky beach. Large well treed sites on West loop. Flush toilets. Free showers. Nice pkayground. Food truck on site with pub food. I don't think any sites are serviced.
