  • Beautiful park. Highly recommend the trail around the lake. Very different from many other Ontario parks in that it is largely deciduous and not many evergreens. Would be even more beautiful in the fall.
  • It is a huge park but majority of it are not developed. The pet beach definitely weak. Not much space for ppl and dog to run around and they have to be on leash all time which kinda defeat the purpose of a pet beach. Also may be the high lake water level is not helping the situation this season. Also, the park rangers are a bit of a jerk. It was pissing rain when we got to the campsite. We had a one carsite,upon check-in we were told we could temporary park at site to unload then move the additional cars to the parking lot. A bunch of ranger kids rolled by our site and gave us a rough time having more than one car one site... seriously give us a break it is pissing rain out there and we r just trying to set up a trap n put our gear there to stay dry it is not like we are blocking the road n the site definitely can fit more than one car... Get your ranger kids some professional development please!
  • A beautiful beach with great view. Came here during spring when ice was melting. Time seems frozen in this place where there is no wave, no sound and very few visitors.
  • Great place for camping πŸ•πŸž. Buy there are millions of mosquitos πŸœπŸ•·. So, must take mosquitos spray with you if you are staying overnight. They don't have enough banches πŸ›‹πŸ›‹. Day trip is not recommended🚫🚫. Staff is super friendly πŸ’πŸ™‹.
  • Nice place to go for walks.
