It's good place to spend some time and relax by watching the beautiful rushing river. The most attractive place is the point near BBQ huts, where river has a great speed and a very beautiful scenery.

I went to the river and picnic area, Rushing river goes as it's been named. It's so natural place, enjoyed watching the river itself, I just loved the sound of the water flow. This place also has a bit of picnic area, great place to be with family and friends for outing.

Enjoyed a hike on the lower Rapids trail this afternoon. Hike is well put together with a few different ecosystems, several boardwalks, a bit of challenge on a damp November day, and several spectacular views. Sounds like there is more to the park than this trail, but the main gates were closed and we couldn't get in.

I had the opportunity to stay in the park twice this summer. The park has a river flowing through the middle of it with areas that have beaches and places to swim. Ideal for swimmers and non swimmers. The area I stayed in was across from the playground.A perfect spot if you have young children. The only complaint that I... More

We would return to this campground again and met several people that include it on their annual cross Canada drives. The campground has a diversity of sites ranging from grassed open sites to enclosed treed sites on elevated ground as the builders negotiate around Canadian Shield terrain features. The washrooms and showers were clean and convenient. The beach was small... More

Rushing river is an amazing scenic park that is just perfect for all sorts of adventure. We went there for the day and went on several hiking trails. The park is quiet and clean and feels untouched. Highly recommended!!!

Was peaceful, lovely campground. Lots of room to roam,on foot and on water. Play areas for the children were huge. They even had a great museum. The staff was pleasant . I loved our week there. I'll go back.

Wonderful place to bring the kids on a hot day. The water is kinda cool but nice. Sometimes in drier times the water is kind of slow but this last weekend in August it was great. Some nice hiking trails too. Here's the link--

Due to our tight schedule, we visited rushing river park for a couple of hours. We enjoyed its cascades so much, so we'd like to camp there next visit. It isn't huge cascades, but you'll be surprised when you hear the roaring sound. Highly recommended!
