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.

Two hours is not enough if planing to stop at the provincial park sleeping Gian. Many trails , but takes hours to walk and see the wonders of the place , Mount mackey would be a better destination for a short stop.
