  • Great park. Lots of well maintained trails. The camp ground are well organized and offer all you need for a backcountry experience. The park is also dog friendly.
  • Caught a beautiful late November Autumn day. Doe lake hike is absolutely superb with some fantastic views. Definitely recommend.
  • We hiked for two days and camped at campsite 9D which had an amazing view. It is a beautiful park. Cannot wait to go back
  • 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.
