It is a huge park i think it was over 4 km long. the dunes and beach were nice but we went too early in the season to enjoy. The sites are not as private as I like. There were alot of kids running around probably because of the alcohol ban

This is a great day trip or stay all week. Beautiful beaches and camp sites, bike trails and local small town.

Trick to this place is knowing the good sites. They book up fast but are worth the effort. The good ones are a close walk to the beach. Remote and well treed. Great beach!

This is a really nice park. I've been to it both in the summer and the winter and both seasons offer different uses that are both equally fun. The canoeing in the summer is especially a good time. The location of the park is also very close to Grand Bend so it makes for a fun day to go to... More

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this park! It is scenic, serene, has fabulous walking and biking trails, great snowshoeing space as well as beautifully groomed cross country ski trails. The beaches are lovely and sandy. Definitely a PARK you should visit! Camping sites and yurts, what more can you ask for!

Park is just amazing - beautiful beaches, well maintained sites, bike, canoe, and kayak rental, clean and well maintained washrooms. Although park was very busy, but because if site layout you could have privacy for your group. Kids really enjoyed the beach and sand dunes, and adults enjoyed the hike and peaceful environment. Will definitely go back!!

I've been to this camp several times and have always had a good experience. Be sure to pick the radio free sites around holidays as there can be quite a bit of noise from youth that come up to party.
