My wife and I visited here on 6/5/17. What a super park - lots of hiking and beautiful views of lake. Got to see "Sleeping Giant". Also drive to overlook prior to park entrance.

Great spot for hiking you cant miss the chimney hike or chest hike. If you want to camp in interior you have to book it.

If like camping, this would be a perfect choice , open for summer. U pay a fee to get in for a day or as long as you want.

If you're looking for some basics, there is a spot at the highway. Say 35 km. If you need a good thorough shop, you're talking about 70 km.
