  • This park is amazing! Lighting Lake is a very nice place to stop. There is an easy 9km hike around the lake which is worth to do. There are some very nice views. You can also rent a canoe/kayak to go around the lake. We stayed at Hampton Campground which is very nice. The sites are big. It has brand new showers, they are very clean.
  • Manning Park is a stunning tapestry of mountains, river and valleys that is left untouched for the most part. Many, Many hiking trails and as many bike riding trails as well. Choose from a number of different camping areas throughout the park. Enjoy the peace and serenity of the mountains. It is well worth relaxing a stressed out life!
  • Great park! So many things to do here - great camping and lots of hiking trails. The main resort area has a great day use area with a beach and plenty of benches. Kayak and canoe rentals available and trails around the area. Definitely take the family for the day or book a campsite in the park, it's worth it!
  • Behind the lodge a few km up the road you hit the lightning lakes day use park. It's beautiful and a good amount of people using it but not to many though. The trails around the area are maintained well and fun to hike. Frosty trail is a great workout if you are carrying gear.
  • As always Manning did not disappoint! The scenery is spectacular, as always! Lone Duck 2 group site is the best place to spend a week in August with a group of friends! Canoeing and kayaking on the lakes is so peaceful and relaxing because of the scenery! Camping in Manning Park is very special and I always look forward to go every year!
