  • We went in the wintertime and hiked most of the walking trails which took us around 4hrs. Don’t miss the lookout trail and marvel at the panoramic view of spruce and the pine forests and the meadow...

  • Beautiful lake ..nice for fishing..just the washrooms were horrendous
  • It was like camping in uncle Bob's front yard.
  • Went during COVID and took 4 staff members in excess of an hour to clean the comfort station. They seemed more interested in talking to one another than being efficient. Eventually went to the out house down the way where it was dirty and wreaked of ammonia and feces. Staff at other provincial parks are more efficient
  • Beautiful park with large campsites and a gorgeous beach. But the park rangers really destroyed our trip. I’ve been to many provincial parks and the park rangers are TERRIBLE here. We felt harassed as they came up and down by our campsite at least 6 times at night. We got a ticket for burning forest wood. Understandable. The ranger was rude and terrible. Don’t go here unless u like being harassed and watched on by the park rangers
  • Friendly staff, well maintained, and decent sized sites.
