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.

Places such as this made us want to stop, linger and wander while driving along Highway 1 on our trans Canadian journey. Great place to rest and walk, perhaps have lunch preformed pushing on toward Thunder Bay.

Very picturesque water falls, although slippery & dangerous. Run by Ontario government. Lots of camping sites available. Busy on long weekends in the summer. Canoe rentals from a private vendor across the highway. About 20 minutes east of Kenora.

We would have enjoyed a longer stay. We simply stopped to stretch our legs and take in the beauty of nature. the peace and tranquility of the water and birds singing and sounds of only nature is something that should not be missed

A great place to camp and a relaxing place to visit if only for one day. Just relax and watch the water flow
