A number of amenities at the park like canoe, SUP board, paddle boat, bike rentals all available. Trails are excellent for biking as a family and long distance running. Very... More

We enjoyed our visit to the park. We weren't expecting the views we got through the tall dunes. Picturesque and charming.

This park has more than enough to satisfy everything you could want in a park. Great variety of camp sites, trail, numerous beaches to choose from, even one for dogs. They have canoe rentals. You can bike for hours on the roadways or trails. Awesome park.

Great campsite, clean washrooms and showers, close to the beach and great trails to bike and hike! Only downfall was the cost of wood and how quickly it burned! A bit of a rip off! One noisy campsite close by with a very loud drunk! LOL! I would go again for sure!
