What a fun day! The Warsaw caves are a series of seven small caves that are great for novice spelunkers. Will you get dirty - definitely. It requires crawling on your elbows and knees and squeezing through tight crevices (if you dare to move forward...More

We visited last Thursday around noon and I've never witnessed so many screaming children in my life. It was like crashing a day camp. I love nature, I love a quiet walk in the woods and getting out of the city to appreciate some solitude....More

I spontaneously went on a solo hike to the caves and it was truly magical. There are so many trails and lovely views to experience. I believe there are 9 seperate caves you can enter along a hike which lead to a majestic river. There...More

This is a lovely place where you can explore some caves (that you can actually climb into) if you are able bodied! It is quite strenuous, so wear some hiking shoes and comfy clothes! You can see 7 caves in maybe 1 km or a...More

Great spot for Kayaking or Canoeing. Very gentle current and some very neat changes in topography as you travel down the river. Lots of wildlife to be seen on route. Would recommend for novice kayaker's - easy launch and not too deep in a lot...More

WOW! So cool! (At least it was in the caves!) We went on a VERY hot and humid day. The limestone was VERY slippery. Wear grippy footwear and do not be afraid to get a bit dirty! Cave #5 was our fave. It was the...More

Got kicked out of the campsite with no warning. Apparently we were too loud, we had one person ask us to turn the music down, which we did, and then turned in for the night. My girlfriend showed up the next morning to spend the...More

It definitely was not what I expected but in the end we all had fun. It was challenging physically and mentally. Lots of areas are very small not recommended if you don’t like confined spaces.

Fun time exploring in the caves and on the trails of the park. There are 7 caves to explore. They are tight and dark. Make sure you have clothes to get dirty in. There is a small beach to relax on after all the exploring....More

Good for family with teenagers. Better wear dark colour clothes and no backpack in the caves. Headlight is a must because you need both hands to climb. Hiking to L lookout and K are worthy.

You can go there for the day. There is an entry fee for the car for the day. We have taken picnics there, swimsuits and one for hikes in the woods and up and around the drumlins which were created by the receding glaciers... More
