Good for families with trailers, I think

I only camped here one night (after the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic) but it was great - they accommodated a very late check-in, and the campsite was large and most of them were close... read more

Perfect camping spot for when you don't want to drive far. Very clean facilities and the camping spot we got was big enough for our pop up trailer and another tent with 2 cars parked on site. We booked site 165. Also nice for kayaking and fishing, my daughter had a great time there. Definitely would go back when we... More

I only camped here one night (after the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic) but it was great - they accommodated a very late check-in, and the campsite was large and most of them were close to flush toilets and water spigots. Showers were quite dirty by 9am, and required us to drive to them (although there was no parking), but I can... More

I had a great couple days and night at Valens with my son, I recommend it to anyone looking for a last minute spot that has plenty of availability. The beach, along with the trail with a nice long walking bridge across the reservoir, the Camp Store that’s plopped down right in the middle of the camping area and has... More

We have been here numerous times. But our favourite is for our annual family reunion camping trips. Nice Large group campsites. Great beach with food and camp stores. They have canoe rentals and hiking trails as well.

I camped here for two nights and was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The site I had (112) was private enough while still being close to the Camp Store and the bathroom. My daughter really enjoyed the swimming area and my husband enjoyed fishing off the bridge. At dusk we went on a hike and the trail was filled... More

My son and I had an awesome time fishing today at this great conservation park. Clean, friendly staff, and beautiful setting makes this park a winner in my books. For two people entry for the entire day was under $20. Wish they had more boats to rent though as when we arrived all the boats had been signed out already.... More

We specifically visited this park to do some trail hiking and geocaching! Being out of season cost was a flat $10 to enter - this did not bother us at all as we love to support the amazing parks in our country that get limited government funding! The park was very quiet when we went - only in the day... More

This was the first time at this park and was pleasantly surprised. There is so much to do here and the beach area is kept beautifully. We will definitely be coming back.
