We wanted time to see the lift lock and get relaxed before carrying on to Cape Breton. All amenities are dare but clean price fir an I serviced site with taxes was 46 dollars which I think is high. Otherwise it was fine.

Picnic tables, water park, sandy beach, clean washrooms, big shade trees, bike trails, and a great chip truck. One of the things that makes Peterborough awesome!
