  • Went on a hike with my kiddos, ages 2, 4, 7 & 8, they all found the trails to be very easy. Huge area, there were free paddle boats, life jackets to use.  more »

  • 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.
  • Love camping here. Need to book 3 months in advance tho so plan ahead!
  • Love this campsite. Has flush toilets and pay showers. Has good rainbow trout fishing with boat launch. Also has boat rentals and a little store.
  • Beautiful campground. Tons of mosquitoes
  • The fishing spot is very nice.
