  • The Park can be reached only by car. In the Park permit can be purchased Office / visitor center. The Park Rangers are very nice and helpful and can advise to possible hikes. The park itself is very nice, larger hikes are possible, outside the season, very little is going on, there is even the chance to see a few animals. Absolutely recommended!

  • Nice park and sights. However could easily be improved by: 1. Needs to add it's trails to Google Maps so people lost can perhaps find their way and exact location using their phone GPS 2. Needs to make some paths clearer and mark with trail numbers easy to follow when at crossroads 3. Needs to be able to pay electronically for self service and better lighting at the self service station 4. Treating area with insecticide for ticks (lots in the area)
  • Great park. Very knowledgeable and friendly warden team. Very clean and not too busy, although I did go in the middle of December. Hiking trails are well marked and camp sites are clean and well equipped. Would highly recommend a visit.
  • This has to be one of the most hiker-friendly parks I've ever been to. It was recommended by a really helpful park warden from Kawartha Highlands and it did not disappoint. We hiked one of the loops and the trails are really well marked. Some of the attractions/points of interest are off the beaten trail and require a bit of hunting but that adds to the appeal. It isn't one of the most picturesque parks I've been to (at least not the parts we've seen so far) but it's still quite nice.
  • We went for a hike in late Fall. Did not see anyone on the trail. Trails are reasonably marked, but watch where you are going, you can loose the trail. The terrain was rugged, we are eager to explore other areas of the Park.
  • Compact treasure of a park. Really well-equipped sites for "backcountry" camping, with picnic tables, food storage boxes, outhouses. Lots of snakes, frogs, beavers, turtles and deer. The trails are well marked and maintained. All sites can be reached by canoe or hiking in. Note that some involve long portages relative to the paddling distance.
