  • The most amazing view of the the night sky in Canada so far. Superb for watch eclipses and aurora borealis or Northern lights  more »
  • Went out there for an overnight camping trip. We chose to camp away from the main area for some seclusion. It was a pretty decent walk considering we had a bunch of stuf with us, but our party of 4+do...  more »
  • Spent one night at the dark sky preserve and it was the most peaceful place I've been yet! Slept in the back of our truck with lots of blankets and pillows in early October. We didn't know we could ha...  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.
