  • Gorgeous park with great trails and spectacular waterfront. It has become increasingly busy over the years and for good reason. On summer weekends the park often reaches capacity for day users so be sure to go early to avoid disappointment. Otherwise try to book a camping permit ahead of time to ensure you are able to get in. Campsites are pretty nice, some sites are definitely better than others with greater privacy. All have easy access to the Cyprus lake waterfront where the water is considerably warmer than Georgian Bay.
  • Always loved coming here and spend a week with friends. Love hiking and spending some nice peaceful joyful time. Make sure to be careful hiking the grotto!! Through out the years I have been here I can see the changes being made as this spot has become more popular and a tourist spot.
  • This is one of the best parks to visit in Ontario. The water is pristine, the trails are challenging, and the landscapes are breathtaking. If you really want to make the most of your trip here then arrive early. During the summertime, parking fills up quickly and the park can become overly busy by the afternoon. If you want to avoid the crowds, venture further into the park by hiking the challenging trails.
  • This is one of my favorite National Parks that is close to Toronto! It is so beautiful with so many different trail options and places to see. There is a hidden grotto somewhere in the park and you can climb down into it and go for a swim. The hikes are awesome because you go through a variety of different landscapes from forrest to walking along a ridge overlooking the lake. I would highly suggest visiting this place if you get the chance! It is well worth it!
  • One of the best parks in Ontario. Great hiking and crystal clear fresh water. Stunning scenery. Highly recommend visiting.
