  • Great park, a little loud with the highway so close but otherwise great staff and a good experience. One crazy hill to get to the boat launch on Sharbot, beautiful lake though. The beaches on Black Lake were clean and the fishing was great. Would maybe suggest to have the Region decrease the speed limit nearby, or adding signs to not use Jake brakes at night time on the road to keep the noise from trucks down.
  • Only been once, but as far as provincial parks go, we were not impressed. The beach was terrible and the site they're put us on was sinking in. That year was not a wet year either. We never went back as there are many others great provincial park in Ontario.
  • The park itself is beautiful. Both lakes are really nice. The staff at the park entrance were nice. Our largest gripe was how loud the traffic was. We're not overly picky and we live fairly close to a highway, but wow is it ever loud. We were on one of the further lots from it but man, trucks blasting by all night. So, the sights are great but the sounds, well, YMMV depending on how much you like hearing eighteen wheelers at 3am using their engine brakes.
  • New spot and more importantly a great weekend of relaxing and getting back to nature. Love this park and it's more than my first time up and would highly recommend this place to anyone that wishes to visit. The further in you go the less noise you have to handle as this is close to highway 7. Another draw back but none the less you'll enjoy the time spent here.
  • Beautiful Park. Lake was clean and warm. Staff were friendly, and we felt safe. Two issues we had were that the wood they sold us (5 bags at different times) were rotten and wet... So an expensive nonexistent fire was had, and the sites are very sandy, soil and rocky.... So super uncomfortable for tenting. Bring an outdoor carpet for comfort. Trails were lovely and in good shape, but the lookouts don't exist anymore as the trees have grown too big.
