    What an amazing beach. Lots of sand and grass. The water is clear and just the right temperature. We went during the week so it wasn't super busy. Would definitely go back.  more »

    Nice campground to stay at or just get a day pass. Big beach with ample room even when the beach is jam packed in the summer time. The water off the beach remains shallow for a long time making it a great place for kids to swim. Has a covered area for people who reserve it during peak times of the year. It rained when we were their yesterday but we made the most of our day ! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice family friendly campground.

    Xenophobic beach rules and swampy bug sites. The campgrounds while beautiful are very swampy, I was practically carried away by mosquitoes. Took our dog for a walk and was greeted by a provincial park ranger that within two minutes of reaching the beach were kicked off. Our dog was the silent well behaved dog he always is, but behaviour doesn't matter. NO DOGS ON THE SAND! Dogs are allowed on grass but not sand.its a little known fact that dogs make sand filthy - you know the stuff that's outside, dirt yeah it's sparkling clean unless a dog touches it. Let me tell you, my dog is cleaner than most of the sea lions basting themselves in toxic sun screen wallowing in their own juices. 0/10 would not return.

    Beautiful park. Sites are decent size and distance apart. Staff very friendly. Clean from litter. Quiet. Good escape for the weekend. Close to a timmies which is always appreciated. Outhouses could be cleaned more frequently though.

    Wonderful camp ground and Day beach in the summer. Great place to walk your dogs on the off season
