“Absolutely Stunning”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

I went to Kettle Lakes on a day trip and absolutely loved it. I am planning another trip back to stay overnight this summer. There are a ton of different lakes that have something for everyone. The lakes are very clear. They even have a dog beach where you can take your dogs so they can enjoy the water as well. Worth the trip if you are in the area and want to Nature watch, hike, or go snorkeling.

“OK”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Just ok. Generally clean, well kept. Swimming here poses issues of leaches. But for the most part a reasonable park. Nothing to drive hours and hours to the middle of nowhere for though. If you're not in the area anyways, don't bother with the trip!

“Great Place to Camp”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Unlike most southern provincial parks where the park rangers act like prison guards, the staff at Kettle Lakes are friendly and don't mind if you have a little sing-song around the campfire as part of the camping experience.

The 21 lakes alone make it a place worth seeing and a trip worth taking!

“Kettle Lakes”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Really like how deep some of the lakes are. Pretty nice layout. Also like the fact they have a platform for diving from. When we were there it was 35C and there was a mother and 2 bear cubs. Pretty entertaining at night.
