For some reason I had never made it to Rushing River before, even though it came highly recommended by friends and family. My companion and I were spending a couple of days in Kenora. She suggested we spend some time at the park, as she had enjoyed visiting in the past. We went for half a day. Which was a... More

This is a must-do for any visitors to the Kenora area. It is a beautiful, family-friendly park with a nice swimming area, canoe rentals, picnic sites, immaculate rest rooms and change rooms. Our children and grandchildren enjoy swimming and boating, and we all love walking along the trail by the rapids. While we do not camp, we love coming here... More

We did a day trip to this park as we hadn't been in many years. The place is just as I remembered it. We didn't see any of the issues that a previous reviewer had complained about. Water was fantastic, everything was really clean. New showers and washrooms. Lots of hilly rocky camping sites with just incredible scenery. Everyone seemed... More

Growing up in Kenora I have had the pleasure of spending a countless amount of time at Rushing River! Following that tradition I now take my own children to enjoy the park! All beaches are fun and clean...our favorite being the main beach! Washrooms and shower houses were always clean when I went! Love camping here and never had any... More

I did walked by the rapids and did the beaver pond and granite trails. The beaver pond was nice, and though I hardly saw any birds I bet at a different time of day (I was there at 10am) it might be a good place to get out the binoculars (I saw a turtle). I really enjoyed the granite trail,... More

Camped at Rushing River for one night, definitely seems popular with families. Beach area seemed uncomfortably packed but if you're camping you probably have access to the lake more secludedly. Nice and warm for swimming this time of year, and good for kayaking/canoeing as the rlake is much calmer away from the "rushing river" part! Campsites well maintained. Probably worst... More
