  • We have heard a lot of thing's about this campground, drove by literally 100X. We were lucky enough to reserve a spot online. There is nothing negative to say! Sites are spotless and huge! Lake is gor...  read more »
  • We stopped here overnight on our way up north. The weather wasn't great with blustery winds and rain. Despite that it was a lovely campground. Our spot in d-loop was forested and you couldn't easily s...  read more »
  • We had a great weekend staying in sit A5 (a walk-in tenting site). The park has quiet trails, a very small beach that is perfect for little kids but not for anybody older, and boat launches for fishin...  read more »
  • The camp was good, some lots were really close though. The water was nice, small beach though. My son wanted to rent a paddle boat so we walked over there about 20 min, no one was there so we waited. About 20-30 min for some guy to come off from the lake, no uniform nothing but he expected me to know who he was, as if I'm supposed to ask every single camper, "hey do u work here?" Or wait inside the Hott shack for God only knows how long? He had no hospitality what's so ever, one word answers, unfriendly, not welcoming, rude. That was highly disappointing and a waste of time for sure.
  • Good fishing and very nice looking campground as well as very clean washroom
  • Very beautiful park, great camping, very clean lake!
  • Amazing campground. Good road to get there. Great fishing. Clean washrooms. Lots of trails. One of the best family-oriented campgrounds in the province. The only problem I had in this campground is Fish and Wildlife officers, who kept visiting my site at least two-three times per day, although there was no loud noise, or any kind of behavior that would require authority's attention. It would seem they were bent on profiling me and my family. Their constant interruptions followed by "preventive warnings" for things I did not even try to do were pretty irritating. It seems to me that Fish and Wildlife likes hiring power-tripping a@#hole sociopaths. I wish my wife and kids weren't in the camp that weekend, so I could speak with them in a manner they deserve. Anyway, couple of frustrated cop wannabes cannot ruin the quality of this camp; they can ruin your trip though. Camp deserves five + stars, and less morons in uniforms.
  • I phoned Carson - Pegasus Provincial Park in early July and was told that I was not able to book a power lot BUT they were on a first come first serve basis. That if I showed up early in the week I would be able to get a lot. I drove to Carson - Pegasus on July 29th from Peace River to get a lot for camping on Aug 1,2,3. Imagine my surprise when I arrived and found that the rules had change on July 9th!!!!!!. Now apparently power lots can be booked in advance. but guess what NONE were available. in fact there was a waiting list. PEOPLE who operate this park should decide whether there is or is not pre-booking available here. Now my family get together for the long weekend had been ruined because of this mis-information. I will not ever again try to camp here and if I can I will discourage others from camping at this place,
