    Meh
    Meh! Definitely not up to the standard of most other Ontario Provincial Parks. Still had an amazing time but it had little to do with the park itself. Playgrounds are a joke, swimming areas have a sandy bottom but very merky water. The staff was friendly and kind. Some washrooms were nice and clean, others were outdated. Bottom line was we had fun but the park needs some serious updating.

    Aug long weekend trip 2023 with best friends
    Long drive for us… almost 6 hours but well worth it!! Lovely big pull thru sites for both our 30 ft 5th wheels!! Nice walking and hiking paths and a great dog beach!! Only downside is there is only 1 water fill station! We arrived early enough but big line up behind us by the time we left.

    Cute little park
    We were travelling out to the East coast in the summer and decided to use this park as a stop over. The entrance to the park was long which really gives you the feeling of being out in nature. Check in was quick and easy. The park is very close to local towns and the Quebec border. We stayed on a pull through site which was perfect. Easy to find and navigate your way onto the site. Park was clean and well looked after. While we didn't get to enjoy all the amenities, we did check out the beach and store. Overall conclusion was this park is nice and small and great for a couple days especially if you need a quick overnight place to stop.

We were robbed at night here. Neighbour was sure it was a Parks vehicle.
Case sites in day, pick up garbage (and other things) at night.
Reported it at gate. No follow up from warden.
Very disappointing. Watch your stuff here !

As far as provincial parks go, this one is kept cleaner than most I see. Each separate campground has its own beach in addition to the main day use beach. Sites are nice sizes but occasionally the odd tree gets in the way.

This was not a good experience. The camp site across from us had 6 cars parked in their site. (Your only allowed 1 or 2 cars). Music was playing from the car radio allllllll day and the occupants were coming back and forth to their cars, illuminating their high beams and beeping their car locks. This woke up our young children several times between 10 pm and 12 am.
There was approx 15 people at the site at one time and we know this because they were playing frisbee and soccer and they constantly came onto our site to retrieve their ball and frisbee. They were burning garbage in their fire pit and other fragrances radiated! (I’ll let you fill in the blanks). We were booked for 2 days but left the morning after. What we were expecting was a ranger of some sort to catch this as novice campers....instead has to call and complain.
We left Immediately with fear of reprisal from the neighbouring site. The beach was over crowded...obviously the site was at full capacity. When we first arrived at our site, there was a large bag of garbage left at our site, dozen of cigarette butts on the ground, and soiled tissues in the fire pit. This was my first ever camping experience....I’m not sure it could get any worse than this. I’m hoping this review will alert the park superintendents and staff to perhaps enforce more inspections of the sites and do their rounds. I’d hate for any young family to experience what we did.

Because of COVID, the services are limited: no boat rentals and no showers.

It was nice enough - but if you are going to this area, I would easily pick Oka Provincial Park over this location (across the river in Quebec). Oka's facilities are far superior (and much cleaner) and their beach is much MUCH nicer.

As for camping here - it was as expected - the camp sites are clean. I stayed at #165 Iroquois B - perfect spot if you have kids. This site has a direct path to the park and to the bathrooms. It would be difficult to fit more than 1 tent on the site - but it could be managed.

Campers have access to two beaches. The main beach (near the Park Store) fills up fast and it is difficult to get parking or a shady spot with picnic tables - I would recommend going before 10 am. There is also a smaller beach only for campers - it is nice but incredibly small. If you have little ones - it is easier to drive to this small beach. But just know - parking is very limited and it fills up fast! Go early.

Bathrooms were gross - not cleaned very often. This is another reason why I would recommend Oka over this location.

Because of COVID - the Park Store has reduced their services - but not their hours - they do have the basic camping needs - including fire wood and snacks.

If you want to leave the campsite for an easy meal - there is a hidden gem about 5 km south in St. Eugene: La Patate Du Coin. Incredible poutine and amazing service - but cash only!

This is a good provincial campground close to both Ottawa and Montreal. Easy to get to, quite clean and well managed. Has a few options for (simple) beaches, small trails, playgounds (closed due to COVID-19), boat rentals (did not try) and a variety of sites. Absolutely no complaints, but nothing about it stands out over the top either.

We stayed in the Iroquois A section (site 270) and were very happy with this site. Camping with kids, it meant minimal traffic. Water was easily accessible and toilets not far. The campsite (non-electric) was big enough for my tent, canopy and lots of room to play. Lots of tall trees too, which was great. Privacy was average. You faced another campsite across the path but between the parked cars, we never noticed them. Otherwise are far enough that you have physical privacy to an extent, but you can still easily hear other sites near you. There are sites in this loop and others better site up if multiple families are camping together, this one would be closest to 269, 268 or 271. We had friends at 272 and it was far enough to be to far. Some of the other sites nearby had little paths directly to the beach as well, which is not shown on the website (I assume because they were forged by people who didn't want to walk around). Evening noise was not bad. Our loop had a lot of families and 10pm rain showers sent all the loud talkers to bed.

The beaches are quite busy with large groups (even during social distancing), and there were several groups at the beach one day with a lot of open containers and music. I have a feeling the park's proximity to two major cities makes this an easy met up spot. I will say though, for the most part the majority seemed quite respectful. Please keep in mind if you're bringing a lot of trash to the beach, and recyclables (cans, bottles), the garbage cans there can only fit so much. When possible, pack it out and throw it away (recycle too) at your own site or at the main garbage containers as you exit the park.

Tip: bring water shoes if you plan to swim as there are water chesnuts at the beach and water's edge.

Overall I'd recommend this site for a quick trip from the city or stop over. If you're looking for a more outdoorsy "camp" experience, there are other Provincial Parks a bit further out with above average sights and activities. This is still a good spot to visit though and lovely (+ easy) when camping with small children.
