Excellent walking trails. The island is kept like a big park. The variety of birds makes it a great location to enjoy them. I assume it would also be a great location for bird watchers. Midweek, It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

Beautiful,quiet scenic park.If you love nature,serenity,beautiful scenery,very few cars or traffic ,lots of bike or rollerblade paths. Then you will love Hecla. The lighthouse retaurant in Gull harbour or the hotel up the road are both pretty decent for dining. You can camp,fish,boat,hike,run,rollerblade,photograph wildlife or the lake etc... This is a great getaway from the ratrace to calm your mind... More

We did not really explore the park to its fullest due to inclement weather. What we saw was very nice. There is a hush all around and it sparks images of yesteryear.

We wanted to stay there for a couple of days but the hotel during that year was closed. Cabins were full as well. We just spent the whole day fishing, driving and roaming around the area. There's a beach as well and a good spot for picnic.

The cabins at Hecla give you a taste of tiny living. They do not have running water or bathrooms. However the beaches, bike paths and marina make up for that. We had a blast. We are already planning are next trip.

Boardwalk was nice but at one point it's not level and it's sinking. At the time, there was a few trails closed. Enjoyed the West Quarry trail though there was a lot of mosquitoes on the grassy areas of the trail. Wasn't lucky enough to see any moose on the island but I'll definitely visit again.

Thank you for maintaining the warming huts and keeping the snowmobiles off the cross-country ski trails. It used to be a problem, but we did not encounter it this year.

We spent some time in Hecla Park at the Lakeview Resort. I enjoyed driving around and stopping at Gull Harbour and Hecla Village for some sightseeing.

Wondering what the dried blue dye on the rocks and trees by waters edge was? Thinking it might have been RV camper sewage dye....
