  • I thoroughly enjoyed taking my Dog here, went on 1 of many trails. There was a beautiful spot by Hardy Lake. 
  • A short drive from Barrie; although it's not very well marked, there's not much around it so it's not that easy to miss (when you start seeing cars parked on the side and signs, it's there), but it's ...  more »
  • The night sky here is really something else, I've never seen the sky blanketed with stars and the Milky Way overhead this close to Toronto. I would only caution that the drive there is really quite da...  more »

  • Good hiking trails during the day, prime stargazing during the night. If conditions are right, you can catch aurora borealis. It is on crown land, so no admission fee and no camping fees.
  • Such a fantastic place to explore. The stars at night are so vibrant here that you really do reconnect with nature and universe. I suggest hiking to the interior more as there are plenty of spots to camp and reach your own slice of heaven on earth.
  • It's a small dark part of the woods for stargazing essentially. A small 'lot' for parking and a short trek through some trees and you've got a bit of an expansive lake in front of you. Camping is possible and there are some impromptu fire rings/pits. It's pretty clear the light pollution around us all when you visit this place!
  • Good views of the sky. Relatively flat ground but it's mainly rock surface. A few trees that can block certain views of the sky depending on where you are in the area. Parking area could use improvement as a couple cars scraped their underside because of unleveled rock which is unnoticeable in the dark.
  • Crown land free camping. Hit and miss who you might run into. Beautiful spot to star gaze, hike and MTB. Come late in the season to avoid the swarms of bugs.
