Bring lots of bug spray
Aug. 2021 • Family
Beautiful Northern Park with large campsites and amazing starry nights. Washrooms are very dated, and the showers were temperamental--leaving you lathered up with no rinse water. Lots of leaches in all the lakes and bring lots of bug spray.

A trip back to younger years
Oct. 2019
It was a wonderful time of year to revisit the park after over 50 years. We used to canoe and camp there in the day.

Beautiful
Aug. 2019
We were there for only two nights and it was great. Camp site was big. We had a fire every night and was very relaxing and quiet. Facilities were clean. Beach area was small but well kept. Water was clear.

The day of park closure for the season, hiking.
Sep. 2019
Warm, welcoming and helpful reception at the main gate. Empty, as every camper was moving out. Hiked the Bog Trail, the park should call it the Blueberry trail. Scenic, hiked in cold, windy, rainy weather. Blueberries were awesome!
With stops, we hiked it in one hour. Not difficult, solid pair of running shoes did the job. Some small hills. Took in the beach areas, had a picnic at the main beach, with little sandpipers running about. We were the only people there.

Disconnect from the world and connect with nature
Jul. 2019
This is our second summer on Esker lakes and we loved. Visited last week of July with my teen sons and daughter.
We have the chance to connect as a family and completely disconnect from the world (there is none to very limited service in this area) The lakes are pristine and the wild blue berries are amazing!
We did lots of paddle board and kayaking as well as hike the longest trail to visit all the lakes in the park. plan to bring deep woods mosquito and insect repellent.

Wonderful nature park
Aug. 2017 • Couples
Worked here as a Junior Ranger in late 70’s and continue to work in the area. This park is a wonderful gem that few people from down south are even aware of. Lots of trees and private campsites. Older style PP. Love spending time here.

Nice Park

Nice place to canoe, hike and camp... did a lot of canoeing with the kids, some nice routes. Some routes with portages that even the kids could handle.

Canada 150th
Sep. 2017 • Couples
Making the rounds of the provincial parks as our way of enjoying and celebrating Canada's 150th by exploring parks within reach for a day trip.

Great park for walking trails, pet friendly.

Hiking on a day pass
Aug. 2017 • Couples
This is a nice small provincial park with some nice lakes and trails. In fact, there are dozens of kettle lakes, formed when glaciers retreated 10,000 years ago. We went in on a day pass, just to drive around and see the place. However, there is not really much to see from the roads. For that reason (and because I love to hike), I did the short (1.5 km) Sentier Lonesome Bog Trail. It was a nice, easy and peaceful trail - beautiful!

Cute spot
Aug. 2017 • Couples
Booked the Aug long weekend at this cute park. Lots are not overly large so if u have a long camper it will be a challenge to get parked in some of the lots. Beach was nice as was the staff. Only thing I found off were that most of the lots are not level but sloped. Make sure u bring tire blocking.
