  • Went to the off leash dog park here. It's a nice park with a lot of trails and open areas for my 2 year old puppy to stretch her legs. You will find this place busy on the weekends. Most of the dogs and the people I've encountered have been nice and respectful. You can buy a pass to use it unlimitedly on the three rivers website. If you have a puppy or a dog that needs to get out and socialize, I recommend that option. Unlike other dog parks in the system, this dog park does not have an area for small or frail dogs. If you have a pup of such, I suggest the one in Victoria.
  • Very nice park. Cross country trails are well groomed and fairly flat so good for beginners. Some hills on one loop.
  • Outstanding Nordic ski trail system for new skiers and family outings. Well-maintained, usually a nice warm fire at the TH in the evenings, and a nice lodge to grab a hot cocoa or relax a bit.
  • Lots of dogs to play with on a nice day. 1 mile outside track. Pond in the middle is okay around spring, gets kinda nasty in summer.
  • I checked out all of the cart in camp sites before picking one. I had the entire place to myself so that was special. Well spaced, wooded, natural camping area. There is a 3.5 mile trail around the lake. The beach is closed for the season but still plenty of golfers were out. I don't know what it's like in the summer season but I will be checking it out again.
