  • I love this park! The woods are so beautiful in this park, with really well groomed trails and the woods themselves being a nice example of an Acadian forest. Amazing place to walk the dog.
  • It can be a little tricky getting into and out when highway traffic is busy, but the park is worth visiting, with long, beautiful walks.
  • Peaceful, quiet, occasional animal sightings. Enjoy this relaxing environment before further development in the caledonia industrial park destroys this atmosphere to an even greater extent.
  • Very nice trail serd, Bring lots of "Muskol", "Off" has no affect on mosquitoes... You are not allowed to swim in any lakes in this Nature Park. Why, I have no idea, but swam anyway..
  • Nice place... Beautiful trails... Lots of wild life
