Many good camping sites with flat ground, decent privacy, multiple tables and are near the lake (just check the online reservation system, as some sites are much better than others). I do find you have to book the good spots a month or two in...More

My family friends visited this place and we really enjoyed the beauty of nature. Watching the sounds of water flowing from the river is relaxing and rejuvenating. Kids enjoyed swimming in the fresh and clean water of the river. We all enjoyed this place!

We drove to Thunder Bay from Calgary and this was one of the highlights of our trip. Quiet serene campgrounds on the lake. Fire pits and Fireflies. Absolutely stunning night. There were a couple of hikes near the lake that had what sounded like 1000's...More

This park has lots to do for kids and adults. From kid area swimming to boating and fishing to play area to nature hikes to photograph. Can’t beat it.
