This is a great park for families. Although the sites can be quite close and small, the local campers are mostly families and respectful. By 11pm every night the place was quiet. The staff keep the fa... more »

Mikisew is a wonderful place to escape to. There are hiking trails, canoe rentals, spacious campsites and RV sites. The bugs weren't bad in late August and the stars at night are so numerous you can get lost just gazing up at them. If Algonquin is a bit overbooked for your taste then I suggest Mikisew. Just as far north and just as gorgeous. This provincial park is dog friendly and family oriented. :)
We've spent 4 nice days camping at this park. The park and the lake are very nice.
The camping grounds are similar to other provincial parks with slight differences to the on site activities. They had 3 beaches for swimming in the gorgeous lake. All the beaches were in close proximity of each other, while one of the beaches had a volleyball, horseshoes, basketball court, and fenced off dog park. The washrooms and showers were all in excellent condition and easily illuminated in the dark.
Great location, camp is clean. Only downside would be if you want power you need a very long extention cord, don't bother renting one as it won't reach your site.
Staff was great, well patrolled, clean. My dog really enjoyed the dog park and beach.
