  • This one was a very pleasant surprise. The sites here are awesome. We took pictures of our favoruites which are along the lake. Some are drive in ones and some are walk in ones. We did check out the b...  more »
  • I'd have to say overall, it was a great trip but only because my friends and I made it fun. The train was the biggest issue, and yes I know there are warnings posted about this- but you wouldn't think...  more »
  • We stayed here with our RV and had a good pitch with elec and water not far from water. Lovely lake to swim and fish, average washrooms (showers could do with revamping). No shop to speak of at all bu...  more »

  • Small clean park. We booked last minute and were lucky enough to get a site. Our spot was a narrow pull-through right near the beach. The park is more of a family weekend type of park rather than the more dispersed type of Provincial Park that we prefer. I didn't start my review as most do by mentioning the trains, however they are a dominant feature, or at least the noise they make is. A main East-West train corridor is directly across the street from the park and train traffic was noticeable at almost all hours. The three nights we were there I was woken at 4 am by the sound of the train whistle. I can't say that I would make this park a destination in the future. I would only use it as a stopover.
  • A gorgeous smaller park to explore with an abundance of hidden gems. Lots of good swimming spots, too! Close to stores in case you've forgotten anything. There is a railroad nearby however come time to sleep there were no more trains - our sleep was not disturbed.
  • I grew up going to Oastler Lake as my family owned a cottage here in the 90's & I've always loved everything about this lake. It's very tranquil & the fishing is fantastic if you're looking to catch smallmouth bass and/or pike.
  • I can't even begin!!! Truly spectacular! The best camping I've ever experienced. This Provincial park is well cared for and maintained. Each camping spot is unique, almost all sites have views of the gorgeous lake. There are conveniences nearby, such as washrooms, showers and everyone we met and spoke with there, were very personable. The lake is crystal clear, very large and sectioned off for swimming pleasure. Plenty of wildlife to watch and admire and beautiful scenery all around. The place is extremely clean..not cramped and many trees and huge campsites..each with two picnic tables. Truly loved my stay here for 5 days and look forward to going again!! Fantastic is too modest for this beauty. 😃
  • The area is beautiful, however the beach is small and there is a loud train that goes by plus you can see and hear the cars.
