  • Great winter or summer camping location. No complaints. Excellent fishing summer/winter as well.
  • Fairly private treed camping spots. Clean & clear lake. Small beach with playground and a nice place to swim. Nice walking trails too. Next time I'll bring the fishing rod.
  • Love this campground. The lake is great and fishing off the seawall is a good option if you don't have a boat! Campsites are fairly large and private for the most part.
  • A quiet park if you choose to go mid-week. It has all the basics, and is close enough to Whitecourt that you could drive if you need anything.
  • Beautiful forest and well treed sites. The sites are well maintained. Great fishing boardwalk with benches along the lake and walking trails throughout.
