  • We were returning from a road trip, stop interesting across Ontario that never ends, plan your essence. Large, wooded sites. Offer electricity but far away. Near a lake. Several hiking trails but were in the rain so did not.

  • Awesome place for camping. Please take the campground close to river side so you can have almost your own private river side. Went to see fall colors and they were awesome. My best fall colors view in last 20 years in Canada
  • Nice small provincial park close to North Bay. No interior camping but nice tent sites. Good size and close to beach. Very clean comfort stations. Best part, the incredibly helpful and friendly park warden, Carrie Beaver.
