  • Medium sized Provincial Park by the lake. Good for fishing, canoeing, swimming. Beach and playgrounds for children. Well maintained comfort stations.
  • Super friendly, clean and quiet. We had a problem with the first camp site and we were able to change, not once, but twice without a problem.
  • Very well kept and modern showers that work great Clean site and level Beautiful scenery Weather was bad so I did not get to do everything Lots of trails to explore
  • Very disappointed with the state of this park. It used to be very well kept when it was run by Drex and Jean-Guy. I can't believe how down hill it has gone over the years.
  • One of our favorites. Just a beautiful place.
