If you like to canoe and camp, this park offers the spectacular scenery of the Georgian Bay delta. Take four or five days and enjoy!

“Visitor centre worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Whether yiu actually visit this provincial park of not... you must stop at the visitor centre. An interactive experience detailing the importance of the river to Aboriginal peoples, the fur trade, missionaries and explorers. Very well done.

We only visited the hiking trail at the visitor centre. At the end of it, there is a beautiful view of the french river gorge and a small waterfall.

“Beautiful area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The area is very scenic, not always easy access for canoes & boats. Will have to spend more time here to give a more open and honest review
