We've stayed here several times in our tent, and enjoy it. The sites are well spaced for privacy. The outhouses are close. The best thing is they have potable water, unlike most provincial parks where you have to boil it first.

We decided to get some exercise and a friend recommended Charlie Lake. Lots of trails from beginner to more difficult that were lovely to walk in summer, but I'm presuming would be even better snowshoeing or cross country skiing in winter. Easy to navigate with...More

Hi Nicole. Yes you can make reservation there. I think they only reserve a few sites though.
