It was a great experience delving into the caves. The kids even noticed new life with the different vegetation in the area. It has breathtaking views. Hiking along the river through the forest was really uplifting for the spirit.

You lose your mind. You get lost in nature and all thoughts and cars just go away. I am TERRIFIED of confined spaces, and yet I felt compelled to go deeper and deeper in a few caves. The rivers and ponds and pit holes., so clear, so beautiful! We actually did get lost in there sidetracking... following the wildlife and... More

Went with my family and it was fun climbing in the different caves. Some were pretty open and others made you feel like you were going to get stuck. Even one with ice in it (and it was mid-summer).

So please fellow cave goers follow the map!!! Don't follow other people when you get into cave one, and for the love of God do not turn right.... dead end!!! Definitely got my adrenaline going as this was the first time I had done something like this. It must have taken us about 40 min to travel through this cave... More

I knew from the website that these caves are not ones you can just walk up to & into, but, once I realized these narrow holes in the ground were very dark, had jagged rocks in the bottom (we could see them with a flashlight we'd brought along), and with several spiders nearby - yeah, I just couldn't make myself...

This is run by the Otonabe River Conservation Authority and is open for camping in the summer. There are a number of great hiking trails and they are open all winter when you can snowshoe or cross country ski. There is a sand beach on the Indian River and as it is very shallow it is suitable for small children.

The caves were awesome. Mother Nature has left her mark on this area in a positive way. I personally am too old to climb down into the caves but those who did were loving them. We had a great hike up to the lookout.

This is a very nice park to visit with the family. There are moderate hiking trails, some small caves to explore, kettles to see (not the kind you make tea in) and a nice little beach. Lot's of great spots for a picnic. A very economical day of fun with something for the whole outdoors family.
