Went to Torrance last week thinking we could gaze at stars. Though the journey was a bit disappointing for us, I can recommend this place for people who wishes to gaze stars. This place is 2 hours dri... more »

Sounded like a nice place. Took a drive up. Parked at one of the "sites" off the side of the road (had a fire pit and clear flat rock access). Didn't set up a tent or make any garbage. Apparently, par... more »

Dark sky preserve and crown land, Canadian citizens can camp for free up to 21 days, (there are no facilities, bathrooms, or lights due to its status as a conservation area) international visitors require a permit to camp. Great for viewing the stars with no substantial light pollution nearby. Several trails that snake through the park along exposed granite bluffs. Beautiful wetlands if you don't mind the bugs.

Went here camping the summer of 2016. The nature and wilderness is absolutely beautiful but it was a little crowded. Because it's so quiet and everyone camps in the same area, the people across from us stayed up all night and we could hear everything they were saying. We thought it might be more secluded with less people but it seems that this place is quite popular. On a plus side, there's not that many mosquitoes unless you go into the forest.

Incredible incredible - clean sites and free! The water is near the parking area and the views are amazing at night. 360 degree pan of the stars, as low as the horizon even. Gotta be careful not to litter - saw a few pieces of garbage around

Absolutely Love This Place. Visited for the first time last night to try and catch the aurora. What a great idea and place for conservation. Though I am mortified to how people behave there. Taking pictures and enjoying the view was an absolute waste of time because of the other patrons there and the light pollution they created and noise. I wish people would familiarize themselves with the requests of the place, respect others, minimize your light production and don't be messy. IE Know how to use your camera before you get there, use your light to find your spot and turn if off, turn excessive lights down or off on your camera and phone. It's really simple. Be considerate.
