Maybe we went with too high expectations as the warmest lake in canada. The lake water itself did not feel too warm but the weather more than made up for it and it was good to be in the water. Gyro beach is too deep too close to shoreline so not good for very small kids. We went to another... More

It is also clean, with well marked swim areas to keep the many motorboats out and swimmers safe. I used my paddle board and found it best to take it out in the early morning, when the motor boat traffic was... More

Vacationed at Brookvale Resort Campground. We had a excellent vacation at this resort and enjoyed all the things to do around the Lake. The water was always so warm. So many things to see. So recommend you vacation here.

Based on the exceptional experience we had the previous month with a group of friends, we wanted to do it again with our husbands and more friends! We were vacationing in the area and asked Steve if he would come to us and share his wonderful personality and knowledge about food & wine. Thankfully he agreed and put together a... More

We have been for a few hours on the beach. Nice view, clear water, families. The downside: a lot of jet-skies and boats make the place really noisy.
