  • Had an amazing time, although the portages were more difficult than expected, based off experiences with similar lengths of portages in Algonquin park. Sites are well maintained, great for families, although doesn't give you the wilderness vibe that larger parks do.
  • Great hiking experience. Lots of deer flies in August but it's expected as it is nature after all. I recommend carrying a net hat just in case.
  • Great hiking, friendly helpful staff, beautiful scenery and killer fishing make this place a "must go to" for all people who love the outdoors
  • Great place to backpack or canoe with way fewer bugs than Algonquin. Well maintained tent pads at the sites and great locations. We'll be back.
  • Always a beautiful place to go camping. A perfect place for beginner hikers to stretch their legs!
