  • If you are visiting this park, it is a must to bring a bike, or at least attempt to hike the loop around the lake. It is really nice and well maintained.  more »

  • Love this place. Only problem with entrance if trying to get in at dawn. As per the person dawn = sunrise, and no entry till sunrise. Website says entry from dawn.
  • This place is alright. The staff are great but I found the campgrounds too close together. As seen in the pictures, the camp sites are right beside/behind each other with little or no brush in between. The picnic tables are pretty run down. The site itself was decently maintained although we found empty liquor bottles in the brush beside our site. Campgrounds are also directly under a flight path. The campgrounds were pretty busy but the paths, playgrounds and other activities were not.
  • In my opinion: DO NOT GO HERE, NOT SAFE FOR KIDS - My experience here was a joke. The park, I found was filled with a lot of people on drugs, alot of alcoholics, and people that seems as if they lived only on Welfare. I was expecting a season camping type of year, but every time we started a fire these sketchy people would pop up so stayed in the trailer. You can't swim in the lake because its poisonous. The person that runs the park is that character that only hires 16-20 year old women. The only guys you'll see are security, and if you deal with them its like talking to robo cop, the type of guy that failed out of being a cop and now takes his security job to the next level. Management knows exactly the type of people that comes into the park, so they've built this attitude that they own the people in the park, they act like they can treat you what ever way fit because they know the people there can't afford to live anywhere else and are all scared of being kicked out, that really ignorant fake smile type of customer service, do what you're told or get out. This wasn't a camping experience I can say anything great about. Entire season kicking our myself for giving these people money. Save your money, there is a great place on the 401 Go to GOLDEN POND RV resort and actually enjoy the money you spend. This entire write up is my opinion and believe it will help alot of people from wasting money.
  • Nice place to go early or late in the year for paddling and fishing. Depending on the summer the lake can develop a fair bit of algee. Fishings ok. I have not had the greatest luck above the damn. Below the dam I have caught bass, pike and pickerel. There are extensive trials in the park, but they are shared with cycles. There's also camping.
  • A nice park; but could use a major upgrade. Do not come to swim; the beach been over grown and lake is full of blue-green algae.

Where to stay in London

To make the most of sightseeing in London, it's best to stay in the center, as close as possible to the confluence of the city's two rivers. You'll be just a stone's throw from the city's best parks, as well as good entertainment. If you're just passing through and looking for budget accommodations while in transit, look east along Dundas Street--as you approach the airport, you'll find a host of affordable roadside motels. For a more suburban feel--and proximity to the city's biggest mall--head south to White Oaks, where you'll find a cluster of accommodations.
